Windows 7: BSOD resulting in a slow startup.

BSOD resulting in a slow startup.

Hello everyone, before I continue I'd like to thank you all for your attention.

Recently I was playing a newly installed game called Battlefield 3 (which most of you might be familiar with), it's a rather demanding game but I figured I had a PC that could live up to the requirements.

I had a few problems seeing as my CPU and RAM memory were both overclocked and it kept BSoDing on me, after I clocked back I didn't have any problems until an hour ago.

I had 101 BsoD, implying that my vcore wasn't set high enough (to my understanding, anyway) - I got rid of the error but ever since that BsoD occured my PC remains in the BIOS bootscreen (the one that you press DEL to boot bios on) on startup (the first screen I get) for approximately 80 seconds which is a very long time, after that it continues and then when I get past the BIOS-boot/post screens, it stays black with a little cursor kind of thing (as if someone's typing in CMD or something) in the top left, stays like that for 30 seconds and then boots Windows which loads perfectly fine.

I have tried resetting factory defaults on my BIOS, I've installed a BIOS update, tried checking if C:/ was being booted first and I'm not entirely sure what else I can do..

My specs:
Motherboard: ASUS P67 Sabertooth
CPU: Intel i7 2600k
SSD: Corsair CSSD-F120GB2
HDD: Western Digital 1TB Caviar Black
RAM: Corsair 8 GB RAM

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit Service Pack 1


Any help would be appreciated, I'm not entirely sure how stable my system is right now but I'd rather that my system boots fast again like it used to.

Thanks a lot

Best regards

First Battlefield 3 seems to have a lot of problems with BSOD's on win 7.


We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

The DMP files are vague but point to hardware. I would revert back to defualt for everything including voltages.

There is some evidence that an OS file intelppm.sys is involved so please run a system file check to verify it

Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

It may need to be run up to three times before sucessful

Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.
