MrPace Posted January 6, 2018 Share Posted January 6, 2018 I was getting a crash on cold boot on my C1 PRO 1080TI the last few times I booted up after shutting down completely. After someone on the MS forums identified the likely culprit from the mem dump file, it said it was an intel wireless driver. I had updated my WiFi drivers from the intel site twice recently...so I did a clean install of the drivers from the Corsair One driver page (they still list the old WiFi Drivers dating back to April 2017), and didn't get a crash the next time I shut down and cold booted the machine. I will monitor it further to make sure it doesn't happen again, but being that this was the first successful cold boot in the last 3-4 attempts, after reverting back to the OEM wireless driver, I think it's safe to assume that the newest intel WiFi drivers don't like my C1 PRO. BTW, it's difficult to tell if your C1 PRO crashes on cold boot...the only sign I had was that the ONE logo wasn't appearing...just the three options in the upper left...and it was taking longer to boot...there was no BSOD even though a BSOD WAS happening (and thus the resultant crash dump files being generated and the messages appearing in Event Viewer). So this might be happening to you and you might not know it. Again, the symptoms were: No ONE logo on cold boot, and no spinning ball...just the three lines of boot options text in the upper left of the screen. Then the screen would go black...and come back with the usual ONE logo appearing (and spinning Windows loading ball) and then it would boot into Windows just fine. Apparently, when the C1 PRO BSODs on cold boot, you don't see a BSOD...it just tries to reboot. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
