alec1 said:I have a BSOD stating stop code:ATTEMPTED WRITE TO READONLY MEMORY.
On booting the computer it goes to the ACER screen, it goes on to Preparing Automatic Repair then it goes to the blue screen. Then it goes to cycle through the same sequence endlessly. Can someone please advise me how to fix this.I was working on the computer at the time and not installing any program although it may have been in auto update setting (I am not sure on this setting). It gave me a message that the computer has an error and needs to restart. I am not sure of how to acccess safety mode as it does not get to that in the booting sequence. I had done a boot check with my Avast antivirus a couple of days earlier and it stated the process was clear.
The computer is about 16 months old so I hope it is not a hard disk issue. I have tried a battery reset and also tried setting the BIOS date to a date prior to the problem, these did not work.
FAQ & Answers
This BSOD is caused by two major reasons, it's either because of a non compatible driver or RAM being troublesome. If you have recently updated your Windows, then try doing a rollback or a system restore and see if the BSOD stops, then do not and I repeat, do no update your Windows 10 furthermore. After 1709, you can't stop updates btw.
If the BSOD happens even after a Windows update System Restore, then you can run a RAM memory diagnostic tools available all over the internet. Choose wisely a clean tool and that will tell you if your RAM is dying on you.
I hope they are able to assist. Thank you for your help, your support is greatly appreciated.
