Windows 7: Windows 8.1 first cold boot always BSOD at windows loading screen

Windows 8.1 first cold boot always BSOD at windows loading screen


Please help. I am at wits end. I have tried with a new harddisk, took out my graphics card, checked my memory, they all seemed fine. My computer always run into a quick BSOD during the first boot and I am unable to see the error message and it restarts back to BIOS followed by a successful boot into windows on the second try. Occasionally, on the second try, it would go into windows repair and say that windows did not start up correctly etc. Normally, once it gets into windows, it would be ok. I did have once that I got a BSOD in windows.

Another interesting point to note is I can circumvent the cold boot crash issue by going to BIOS immediately on boot and exit it. This way, it would normally boot into windows without issues.

I suspect this is due to the on board network card but I cannot be sure. I would appreciate any advice or help on this. This is extremely frustrating as this computer is only 1 week old and I have spent a lot of time troubleshooting it. I have tried uninstalling, cleaning and re-installing the latest network drive.

Please note that the cold boot crash issue does not always generate a mini dump file.

Recently, it has been showing System thread exception not handled.

Thanks in advance.
