This Pavilion has had many different Blue Screens halt the notebook and had errors "Critical Process has Failed', "Unexpected Store Exception", "Driver Verification DMA Violation" & Critical Process Died". If I let it 'gather information and restart', it always reports no operating system present during BIOS. It doesn't matter if I'm online with a browser or not.
If I press and hold power to turn off instead of letting it gather ....., then power right back on, The computer will boot to the login screen and not report a missing OS.
So during the windows 10 gathering information blue screen, what is gathered? It seems then there is a log of the dying process where I could get a hint of why it's crashing?
Flashed the bios with the HP support recommended update.
Went to the startup setting and only selected minimal startup processes.
Ran a registry cleaner.
Done the old school things of scanning HDD for errors.
Turned off HDD caching.
To me, it's a failing SS HDD sector or memory section.
How do I look at the info Windows has 'gathered' to see why?
