  1. Can't boot, stuck in a loop DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION

    I was using my computer under medium load and suddently got a BSOD. Now i can't boot, i get same BSOD over and over again before i can get into windows and it's stuck in a loop so it doesn't enter into recovery mode by itself.

    I got a win10 usb key so i used this to get into recovery mode and i have access to command prompt right now

    • SFC /scannow fails with error "There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart windows and run sfc again."
    • DISM doesnt work
    • Can't get into safe mode
    • /bcdedit will not work and bcdedit /enum says "the boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found"
    • in command prompt, if i type "cd C:" it doesn't work and i can't see the root of my win10 ssd. however i can access other drivers
    • in bios, my 960 pro SSD is still detected in the boot devices
    • /fixmbr and /fixboot completed successfully but didnt fix the issue

    Possible causes :
    • I recently upgraded to a Samsung 960 pro NVME SSD few weeks ago. Maybe it's dead ?
    • I had an automatic nvidia driver upgrade today, i was asked to reboot and clicked "later". Then BSOD. Maybe corrupted driver because the update couldnt finish ? Sometimes driver upgrades are trigerred in the background when rebooting.
    • Usual noob errors excluded here. I'm an experienced IT, this was a 100% stable machine all hardware tested and operating 24/7 since 9 months. Drivers were up to date, ram is memtested, cpu is stresstested, ssd was tested and benchmarked w ssd magician and hdd sentinel, windows was up to date, no malwares, no virus, etc.

    Windows 10 Pro
    gtx 1080 titan x pascal
    samsung 960 pro nvme
    msi x99a

    i'd really appreciate some help. Thanks !

  2. BSOD error || Error : PFN_LIST_CORRUPT

    System entered a boot loop with the error DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION. I had to boot into safe mode and remove driver verifier's settings so the system would boot up properly. Here is the resulting dmp file:!Ao0Qrxmadwobgst2f_7ACc7HdIBPAg

    Dear ZigZag3143,

    Thank you for responding to my message and addressing my problem.

    I am not over-clocking anything. I just followed the instructions for the driver verifier and I am now stuck in a BSOD boot loop where I receive the message DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION (IntelPcc.sys). I have entered cmd and tried to delete all existing
    settings so that it would no longer test my drivers but I can't get to my desktop anymore I just keep getting this blue screen.

    If I could get to my desktop I could upload the DMPs but getting past this blue screen is proving to be difficult for me.

    I hope this information is helpful,

    Can't boot, stuck in a loop DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION

    Do you still have your old SSD? You may need to attempt a clean install to troubleshoot this issue.

    I've seen this error before on a system that had a failing RAM stick and a Hard drive failing.

    The system would attempt the boot, go through the spinning dots, and before it got to the lock screen, boom, BSOD like this one, also I would get the bsod "watchdog Violation".

    I got a new hard drive for the system, did a clean install. Problem went away.

    Usually a driver verifier error would indicate a hardware failure, or a bad driver.

    You could also boot with your Windows Installation Media and see if you have any restore points available, and restore to an earlier point in time to get your system at least functional.

    But, if you have a spare drive, do a clean install

    Also, after doing some research, it appears that this error pops up if there are issues with the video card driver. If you can restore your system, that would be a good thing to check is that.

    Since you're in a boot loop, it's probably impossible to upload a BSOD dump file to determine the actual problem
