    BSOD with QR code--never seen before

    NOTE: This is for my 2nd PC in my System Specs (Asus).

    I was playing a casual game, then suddenly got BSOD with QR code.

    Only thing unusual for this laptop is past few days, screen would get black vertical lines on a light blue screen with a buzz sound that is stuck buzzing. Has happened playing casual games.

    It has taken me over 24 hrs. to get a dump file for posting...sorry.

    Impossible to get all the way into Windows, tried everything on the menu. I copied the forum program to an SD card using an old netbook, & just a little while ago, was able to execute it on the troubled laptop. It froze on the 1st try, but I think it is all there this time. Finally got it to complete using Safe Mode (no networking); so posting this from netbook.

    Note that I ended up rolling back to May 12 before the major recent Update (even though previous crashes told me there were no Restore Points).

    Thanks in advance for taking a look.

    BSOD with QR code--never seen before

    Still trying to get Win back, & QR code screen came up again; this time it 100% completed (said for disc errors).

    Here is message:
    An operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system. Press Ctrl+Atl+Del to restart.

    I have a 2nd HDD in this machine that is only for data storage/backups. SD card is not in; NAS is not connected because no internet.
    Going to do what it says & report back.

    Tried C+A+D twice, brings back to same error message. This is new. Going to shut off at power button & keep trying things.

    Yes, after posting; same result. Even went into BIOS & changed boot order to HDD 1st
    (CD 2nd).

    Thanks for reply.

    I will try your suggestions.

    Will my downloaded-to-CD Win10 suffice?
    Or have to take it back to 7?

    Failed restore points to May 12 (major Win Update).
    Keeps giving as only option, but nothing changes.

    Have been working on this all weekend, last try was stuck at DOS screen to C/Alt/Del screen & press any key to start...just kept showing the same thing over & over when any key pressed. Could not restart or shut down without using power button.

    I tried some other things in other posts like scannow, no go.

    Pulled the HDD out of my dead mobo Dell & stuck it into this one, everything loaded & even adjusted to the native res of 1920x1080!
    Some of my kid games asked for CD (yeah, I know, LOL) to open the program, did that, & all worked.

    Then, late last night, back to square one with BSOD QR code screen, freezing, & no way out but with power button.

    So, open to any other suggestions as to what is going on. I'm using the machine right now...turned it on this afternoon & acting great, except web pages loading slow.

    I have a blank HDD that I will try next to do a clean install of 10 & see what happens. But would still like some advice. Thanks.

    UPDATE: Did not put in blank HDD because I am exhausted. It seems it may be hardware failure somewhere, & HDD is not the problem.

    Forgot to add that Dell HDD I put in had the completed new 10 Creator's Update (where it adds the Xbox section in Settings); it is not showing up on this machine. I have a couple of Updates already in this machine, but still without the Xbox section. Puzzled?

    UPDATE: I was able to manually d/l Creator's Update.

    BUT--Device Manager menu is cascading jumping in & out. Tried some of fixes I found, none worked. I was able to try updating each device's drivers, but said I already had the best installed.

    Update on past 2 weeks--nothing has worked.

    I pulled the Asus HDD & popped in the HDD from my Dell. Everything booted perfectly, & thought I was home free.

    Last night, back to the same BSOD, sometimes boots, but mostly freezes at various points.

    I think there is hardware failure somewhere? Machine is from 2010, that I inherited from a gamer in the family. Is it time to just give up? Working on it for over 2 weeks. :-(

    You have definitely tried all of the many ideas that have been mentioned so far. You may be right, it might be a MOBO problem. The MOBO in question is the ASUS G73-JH, right?

    BSOD with QR code--never seen before

    Yes...& apparently from what I've read, it is a problem machine, but mostly the graphics card. Known for the vertical pinstripe screen, which is how this started a few weeks later.

    I have the HDD in a case now (where my zip file is from), everything reads fine, files are there. When that HDD was in machine, it randomly could not find restore points in Safe Mode.

    HDD in machine now (from Dell, which supposedly has a fried mobo 2 mos. ago) is now showing same behavior, no restore points & I know they are there. Had the Asus running perfectly for a week. What are the odds of 2 laptops from 2010 both having fried mobos?!

    For now, IF I can get it to boot, can use Safe Mode with No Networking.

    Anything I can try for diagnostics from that state?

    Thanks for reply.

    If it's crashing on a Linux Live cd, e.g. Ubuntu/Debian/Fedora that would definitely indicate a hardware issue. If it does boot to a livecd, mount your hard drive and copy the contents of C:\Windows\Minidump\ and post it here.
