Windows 7: Schannel fatal error 40 and 70

24 Dec 2016   #1

Schannel fatal error 40 and 70

Windows 7 ultimate x64.

My rig was running fine until I went digging into the installed windows updates section.

I uninstalled an update not verified by windows and THEN installed the infamous KB2670838 because it was a known solution game fix for Carmageddon Max Damage. It failed anyway.

Now in my event viewer I'm getting tons of fatal Schannel errors. Also encountered a BSOD MEMORY_MANAGEMENT which I think is a failing PSU. Rebooting is a gamble as sometimes I have to run the repair module.

I do NOT have the schannel update installed nor the KB2670838 update any longer. I have ran SFC/SCANNOW a few times and nothing was irregular.

I have ordered an EVGA GQ 1000 PSU which will arrive in a week if anyone agrees that my current PSU, a kentec chinese firecracker bargain, is the cause for some of my issues.

Update... Can't boot. Stuck at windows icon glow. Safemode stuck at classpnp and if I wait long enough I'm staring at a black screen.

Rebooting I get dos screen saying I should use a proper boot device.
