View Full Version : Strix G712LWS fast boot problem

07-08-2020, 10:45 AM
Hi ROG community,

2.5 weeks ago I got a brand new STRIX G712LWS laptop which is now giving me BSOD when is try to boot in Windows. The error given is KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR.

below are details and history of this device and how I got into this problem, the workaround I found but not a definitive solution:
When I got laptop out of box the first thing that I tried is ran windows updates which installed latest drivers and updates. All the time during I am having on this laptop Windows 10 1909.
After few days of using it I lost all wireless communication (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) and event log was full of error. I tried to restore windows and reinstall relevant drivers but no luck. I decided to reinstall Windows. Up until this point Windows was able to shut down and boot up without BSOD.
During the Windows reinstall I noticed that there is new BIOS version 308 and my laptop came in with 306 so I also decided to update my BIOS as well.
BIOS and Windows install went fine and again I used Windows updates to get latest drivers and I also checked official site for all tools and utilities. I am quite certain that at this point my laptop had same drivers, programs and utilities as it came in the box. The only difference was new BIOS and this was reinstall.
This is when my problem starts happening. When I try to boot up from a shutdown I will get BSOD with error KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR and name of the file faulting, the name file was different every time I get this error. To be on the safe side I decide to reinstall Windows again and I also go in the BIOS and use the option to restore the defaults.
Again after reinstall the BSOD happens when I try to boot up after shutdown. My initial thought was that maybe new BIOS 308 has this issue so I managed to find workaround by going to control panel and disabling Fast Startup, which as we know is kind of hybernation. Now my laptop can boot up without BSOD after shutdown. Hybernation or boot using Fast startup will not work as I get BSOD, if somebody wonders I can get it to sleep and wake up with no issues.
Last night I see that ASUS released new BIOS 309 so I install that and I re-enable Fast Startup in Windows to see if the problem is gone but unfortunately I still get the same error.
This time around I managed to read the dump file and discovered that underlying error code is 0xc000000e - A device does not exist was specified and DISK_HARDWARE_ERROR: There was error with disk hardware.
This is bit strange to get this error as the device is brand new and it was able to Fast startup before reinstall. I downloaded INTEL SSD toolkit and no errors were reported and SMART is also showing as as healthy. So I am suspicious that this is SSD failure. I also used check disk and no bad blocks were being found but it does some sort of cleanup by removing unused references.
Below is dump:

If the error status is 0xC000000E, 0xC000009C, 0xC000009D or 0xC0000185,
it means the disk subsystem has experienced a failure.
If the error status is 0xC000009A, then it means the request failed because
a filesystem failed to make forward progress.
