I have an MSI leopard pro laptop running Windows 10. It's about a year old, purchased in December 2016.
Since my purchase I've had a few BSoDs that have come out of the blue (no pun intended) despite ensuring software and hardware integrity. I've done sfc and chkdsk on multiple occasions throughout the year with no faulty outcomes being found. I'm also very careful on which sites I visit and have a no-script.
Despite this I've received those few crashes out of no where. I also note that crash dumps were not saved in the minidump folder on about half the occasions.
One thing I've noticed is in Event Viewer, there's always an error notification that Windows failed fast startup, followed by an error of all event handles have been dropped, followed by a critical "the previous system shutdown was unexpected". I'd also get a few CLSID permission errors following too. This was link to Fast Startup (FS), where I have found a couple problems linked to FS.
Yesterday when starting up the computer didn't boot up, it immediately went to verifying and repairing C: drive. This was odd. When logging in I noticed the computer running slow so I restarted, but then it brought me to a new logon screen saying it failed to retrieve my local profile.
Can this problem be caused by FS messing around with locking the harddrive (as I read it does)? I disabled FS and now note no error or critical messages in Event Viewer when starting up the computer (including no CLSID error).
I have quite a bit of information saved over the past year as I've tried to tackle this problem, so I don't want topost it all here, but if anyone wants any I can surely dig it out for convenience.
