Windows 7: Event ID: 100 upon start up


01 Apr 2014   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
 
 
Event ID: 100 upon start up

My Windows7 PC took forever to start up. Prior to that it took forever to shut down (more than 30 minutes, it just got stuck on AMI POST code 32..34, so finally I forced a shut down.)

I tried starting, but it got stuck on 41...42..., alternating. It didn't proceed. I forced a shut down in this process, took out the powercable. Restarted. It worked, and the PC booted.

I went into the event log (I apologize if the terms are incorrect, as all names have to be translated to English. This is the last time I choose a local language version).

Windows 7 (6.1.7600.16385)
41849ms start up delay
IsDegradation: false
Event ID: 100

Error report source: Microsoft-Windows-Diagnostics-Performance

I continued to Microsoft's online help and got the following:

Diagnose

Events 100, 102, 1107, and 1108 indicate that there is a problem with the event provider registration.
Event 100 and 1108 can be resolved by resinstalling the event provider. Contact the vendor that developed the event provider to reinstalling the provider does not fix the problem.
Events 102 and 1107 can only be fixed by contacting the vendor that developed the event provider and informing them of the problem.


Event ID 100 ? Provider configuration


I guess that the "event provider" is Microsoft (or) Windows7, and the above diagnosis (with poor spelling and grammar straight from Msft) is directing me to reinstall?



Would anyone know if my interpretation is correct?

Hello and welcome Gadgety mate you have a real problem there eh?

So can you get into safe mode? if you can run these for starters as something is really out of whack. Plus if you haven't already I would if possible back up all yore important data in case this goes to a reinstall.

Thank you for your reply, and for your welcome, ICit2lol

It booted up. So the event data and ID is from inside Windows, normal mode. Thank you for scannow, and the disk check. I'm familiar with both, and I'll run them. However, is my reading of the report correct, that the "event provider" is Windows/Microsoft, or is that conjecture? I.e. to understand the report readout I have to check further before concluding who/what is the event provider.

Well gadgety mate I am not that well up on the codes and stuff contained in the Event Viewer all I know is there are "events" ie actions taken at certain times during a login which will show up just about what you are doing at any given time on that date and if the "event: is of abnormal behavior it will come up as a warning , error, or critical. Now like I said what those actually refer to is a bit beyond me.

Those checks especially Option 2 in chkdsk can put a few things right if not all if you like I can ask for someone to take a look at the logs because even though I cannot ID the problem it does look ominous to me but that is not to say it actually is.

But please back up any data as previously requested just in case.

Having said the above this could also be a hardware problem too and that is more in my line to answer on. Just out of interest how old is the machine mate? For starters you could try reseating all cards sticks etc see my little ditty and pic

SLOTCLEANING

Now as for the slotsto clean them use a strip of old credit card about 1/2 inch wide nip thecorners off one end - preferably round them offhold a piece of thin lint free clothover the end dab on some form of alcohol - iso propyl alcohol (what we swab theskin with before an injection) is good and GENTLYswipe along the slots.

This can also be donefor the GPU slot/s.

Scannow = 100% verified and nothing found. I won't run chkdsk as it's for HDDs and I've only got an SSD. The motherboard is all new, and the build is about 6-7 weeks. Prior to posting, I had run a virus check and malware check as well. It could still be hardware related of course, although probably not grime/dirt related. Your credit card/isopropyl trick will come in handy some day. Things are odd, though. I can't get the Windows desktop gadgets to run/or open from the control panel, and they were displayed previously.

Event Viewer

If you want to get information from Event Viewer you'll need to add custom views to investigate problems as shown here:

Use Windows 7 Event Viewer to track down issues that cause slower boot times - TechRepublic

If you look at the Boot Degradation tab it should hopefully provide details on what caused the problem. Fixing it is another matter!

Example from my machine (this one is not a problem unless it happens on a regular basis).

Perhaps if you can manage to use this method to find out what caused the problem - other members might provide a fix!

Just a by the by Gagdety the chkdsk can be run on SSD's mate there is no problem and unlike the old spinners it is much quicker to run.
The one you do not run on SSD's is defrag Disk Defragmenter Schedule- Turn On or Off

I suppose you have the TRIM set too? How to TRIM a SSD in Windows 7

Thank you, both.

@ICit2lol On the chkdsk the info I had was don't run because it wouldn't bring any benefits to the SSD, as they have built in error handling, but I hadn't looked into the specifics, and there's been some differing opinions about it online. Having had a quick read I understand that chkdsk can still check the file system, regardless of the SSD's sector status. The disk defrag I've stayed clear of, thanks for the heads up on that one anyway! Trim on/off tip, thanks for that, too.

@Callender Thank you for the custom viewer suggestion. I think I got the listing I enclosed through the event viewer, and then continued on to Microsoft's suggested link. Your TechRepublic link also did explain a little bit more about what the various headings mean. My current understanding is that there must have been something else going on, since it took way longer than 47 sec's to boot up, so it requires further digging and checking the reports on my side. I still haven't figured out who the "event provider" is, though.

And now for the clincher, the problem is automagically gone, and the boot up, as well as shut down, are both working well again.

Well maybe the scans did something to clear the jam mate the chkdsk well I run it then I know for sure the filing system is checked - especially in Option 2 there are options to repair sectors, errors etc but of course the choice is yours.
It doesn't take long to run and costs nothing but again the choice as I said is yours.

Anyway at least you are up and running that is the main thing
