i started getting these pesky bsod’s a few days ago.the blue scren says “critical structure corruption,what failed;ntfs.sys”
i posted first on some windows forum where a guy told me to reseat all connections.it didnt work.after that he abandoned me…i also tried display driver uninstaller,didnt do much either.
so i did the logical thing-came here!
aorus master x570
2x8GB 3200/cl 16
a couple m.2 and some sata ssd’s/hdd’s
heres the dump:
(i dont know why theres only files from last 2 days?)
Novasty might be able to provide a more immediate answer. I’m on holiday until at least tomorrow lol.
So what I would do is run dism repair and an sfc scannow repair in the mean time. This should fix any critical system files. As I’m on holiday I’m not looking at bsod until Monday. Novasty should be able to provide a more immediate answer
As for this, likely a failing/bad hard disk, remove any recently added drives or recently added old harddrives if you added any, if not, run with only the essentials, so OS, important data drives, etc…
I mean I am trying to narrow down which storage device is causing it first before we outright switch SSDs. Because just swapping an SSD won’t resolve the issue if the BSODs are still happening as a potential from the other storage devices installed.
there seems to be 2 different types of warnings,at least for today.
one is something about intel gigabit internet.but the other is about something SID.i have no idea what even to look for…
i send pics of the SID one.
Dcom isn’t what you are looking for. That doesn’t matter.
“critical structure corruption,what failed;ntfs.sys"
Is telling me it’s a disk problem.
Additionally, the bug check you illustrated says its a disk problem
Please try another disk. There is no reason to get sassy.
@Novasty sorry for the double post-- I hadn’t seen your reply.
The storage device that is causing the probelm is the storage device that ntfs.sys is running from. That will be on the C: drive. The evidence we have been given suggest the drive is going all hinky.
I know it is not reporting SMART errors, but that doesn’t mean anything. We know key system files in Windows are corrupted. Believing the SMART reporting over the evidence is like believing a murderer who claims he is innocent after watching him commit the crime.
The other drives are irrelvent because he wasn’t complaining about specific files or programs crashing, he was complaining about BSODs and the BSOD’s say ntfs.sys is corrupted.
EDIT: Also, @ddmeltzer8 please post a screenshot of the C drive’s crystaldiskinfo. I would bet SMART is actually reporting something bad happening and isn’t reporting it in a manner you are familiar with. The percentage it gives is mostly meaningless.
