    Will installing a new SSD on a BSOD crippled laptop fix it


    My HP laptop running Windows 10 home no longer boots after suffering from a BSOD months ago which I never managed to resolve after many hours of effort and reading tutorials etc. I am now going to replace its 256Gb SSD with a new 1Tb SSD then clone the old drive onto the new drive. But will the new drive still suffer from the BSOD issues of the old drive or should I do a fresh install of Win 10 onto the new drive and then move or transfer the files and programs from the old drive, the ones I want to keep, onto the new drive. What do you think guys grateful for any advice.

    :)

    Z Book BSOD with Second SSD Drive

    Hi all

    I have an issue with an HP Z Book. It is a new Generation 6 device and came with a pre-installed second SSD drive.

    All worked fine until I tried to put our corporate image onto the primary OS SSD.

    Firstly, the new OS installed onto the secondary SSD rather than the primary.

    So I disconnected/removed the secondary, recreated the partition on the primary and loaded our stock OS.

    The machine now works absolutely fine, as long as I do not try to re-introduce the second SSD drive.

    If I reinstall this, the machine boots up OK for a second or two and then BSOD's.

    Can anyone suggest the reason for this issue - the BSOD message reported a kernel error.

    Any ideas on steps to take to resolve this?

    Thanks

    Phil

  3. BSOD for corrupted hal.dll on new laptop with fresh Windows 10 installation

    Hello,

    Today I bought a new laptop HP Pavilion Power 15-cx0034nu and install Windows 10. The laptop has SSD and HDD and I install it on the SSD. When I try to install Chrome the laptop freezes and after 20 seconds
    in this state, it gives me a blue screen(screenshot attached).

    I try to install 3 different steps(Pro, Home and Home with 1 language) but every time when is in idle everything is ok but with little stress and it freezes.

    One of the times I was able to install all drivers without freezing and I decided to start AIDA64 just to see if it will freeze with some stress and it does almost immediately.

    I attach 3 snips from dumps related to this BSODs:

    Snip1: https://photos.app.goo.gl/KYMNdBbWhGAQWGaX6

    Snip2: https://photos.app.goo.gl/iJtfJigf1Zjm9VXUA

    Snip3: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZrxA853qsmon13v37

    What is your opinion about this situation and is there a hope to be something different than a hardware issue? Is it normal to have corrupted hal.dll after a fresh install on a new laptop?

    Please help me fix the issue if it is possible.

    Will installing a new SSD on a BSOD crippled laptop fix it

    BSOD srttrail.txt, no fix, installed W10 on different SSD, how to fix it on original SSD?

    Hey guys,

    Two days ago I encountered BSOD srttrail.txt. I tried to fix it in many different ways, tried everything described here:

    How to resolve Srttrail.txt BSOD error on Windows 10?

    no luck. I tried to repair system from bootable pendrive with W10, didn't work neither, it said that it needed to be done from the operating system level.

    Finally I plugged new, empty SSD and installed new copy of W10 there. So at this point I have C: with new W10 instalation, that I can access and D: with broken W10 installation causing BSOD srttrail.txt.

    Is there any way to fix W10 instalation on D: from operation system being booted from C:? All W10 options that I can see refer to the copy installed on C:.

    I'd really like to fix somehow installation from D: without loosing data, programs, apps etc. I know that the last resort is to format D: and make a clean instalation there, but I'd prefer to avoid this.

    Thanks for your time!
