Boot up crash - weird blue screen

Hey forum!

So, recently, I had an external hard drive brick due to me using Cheat Engine for one my games and it crashed the computer. The SSD I have Windows installed on is working fine and the notebook hard drive for storage is working fine, but the computer started to lag really bad. I kind of went extreme and reinstalled Windows completely and rearranged the RAM sticks. Everything was reinstalled (including updates) and the lag is gone. The computer works fine except...

Every boot-up from shutdown results in waiting for 60 seconds and then a very strange blue screen. At the top of the screen, the font is very scrunched up and illegible and then on the bottom right, I'm guessing the same words are there, but the font is large and goes off the screen. It said the typical, "There's an issues with you PC..." and the only error I see is "Driver - Startup". The rest of the exact error goes off screen. For some reason, the screen looks as if it vibrates back and forth. After the error counts to 100%, the computer restarts and boots up fine. Unfortunately, now when the screen saver eventually puts the computer to sleep, the computer won't come back on and I have to completely start the process over again. What should I do?

  1. Try updating older drivers, including for your graphics card.

    Use msconfig.exe to do a clean boot (see link). If the blue screen occurs on next boot, then a particular startup service is causing it. Keep enabling/disabling services and rebooting until you isolate the culprit.

    I'll try that and let you know what I found. Thank you!
  3. BUMP. Turns out the WinRing0x64.sys is a driver you don't want and NTIOLib_X64.sys is for MSi motherboards. Here is my setup:

    ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 Motherboard
    AMD FX-8350 Octa-core processor
    ASUS HD 7950 3GB GPU
    16GB AMD Radeon Memory
    750 Watt Rosewill power supply
    Rosewill Watercooler
    Samsung 120GB SSD (windows installed)
    Toshiba HHD 500 GB (storage)
  4. This problem may occur if any one of the following conditions is true:
    The new device or the driver causes conflicts with other drivers that are installed on the computer.
    A hardware-specific issue occurs.
    The driver that is installed is damaged.
