Cue update has caused Win10 endless boot Loop
 
Today I received my new Corsair VOID Wireless headset, plugged it in, updated its firmware and all was well.

I then noticed a notification to update the CUE software from 2.4.66 to 2.5.66.

Half way through the install process, my PC crashed into a sound loop and then BSOD with the error code IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

Now my PC is stuck in an endless boot loop.

I managed to cure it by disconnecting all my corsair devices and using my Win10 usb drive to run a system repair which just did a system restore. (and which i just realized deleted Forza Horizon, so thats 50Gb to re-download :(: )

I downloaded CUE 2.5.66 from Corsair's site, it does install, but will not open! :evil: I tried removing and re-installing, but still have this issue.

I'd rather not have to do a clean Win10 install :(:

Anyone experienced the same? Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

If CUE is crashing, Open Event Viewer and see if you can find an entry related to CUE crashing.

If there are no entries, check Task Manager and the notifications tray as it may be running in the background.

Same issue here. I just tried updating CUE 2.4.66 to the lastest 2.5.66. During install I got a bluescreen and after that a bootloop. Had to use Windows restore to get back to a prior version.

Sorry, this is not acceptable!

@Toasted
Did you even read Fezzys post? Boy, how would you access Event Viewer if the system is in a bootloop?`

This needs to be fixed, I canīt believe we are the only ones that have this issue.

Thank god I am not the only one. Same thing happened to me. I had to reinstall Windows 10. I tried removing CUE2 from CMD and I couldn't access anything. I will never use CUE2 or try to use it again. I will stick to CUE..

There appears to be a bug with CUE 2.5.66. DO NOT UPDATE from 2.4.66.
UNINSTALL 2.4 then INSTALL 2.5 (that worked for me)

Where did you find the older version? can you copy the link here?

@ThesunGirl
Thanks, I will try that soon. For now I am not keen on reinstalling or fixing Windows 10 again, if things go wrong. I find it highly irritating that a damn keyboard program makes Windows 10 go into a bootloop. This is terribly sloppy programming on Corsairs side. I canīt remember the last time I had a bluescreen (be it Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10)....and Corsair managed to do so with a lousy keyboard software, boy.

@EdHart
I had it save to my harddrive - luckily.

Thank you Flint314 :) I found V2.3.74 as well which worked best for me. I will install tonight to see how it works.

Lightnindog 10-04-2016 09:41 PM

Also had this issue updating to 2.5.66
Now that i've uninstalled i've tried reinstalling 2.4.66 after uninstalling all versions and my computer now crashes while trying to install drivers. Now attempting version 1

EDIT: Now I am recieving a procedure entry point error within CueHID for multiple files. I just want my mouse buttons to work :(

EDIT 2: After trying to repair the version 1 software it crashed my computer during Driver1 install AGAIN. This software is absolutely abysmal.

Could you possibly post v2.3.74?

...and please let me know if it works. I completely uninstalled CUE2, i might install CUE1 later, can't afford any system freezes anymore.

It seems that Corsair isn't eager to do something about it!

Hi all,

CUE shouldn't cause any bluescreens and we've never seen this symptom before. It's even more odd that an earlier version of CUE 2.X works but not 2.5 since the backend components have not changed (only fixes to UI issues).

In order for us to properly diagnose what could be wrong, we'll need event logs or a blue screen log to know what exactly caused the issue. Windows always saves these so once you can successfully boot back in, I'd appreciate it if you guys can share it.

As for a "boot loop", CUE isn't likely the cause of that since CUE doesn't affect any OS startup files. The only thing CUE installs is a driver (for the macro playback) and that doesn't impact whether Windows starts up successfully or not.

"Half way through the install process, my PC crashed into a sound loop and then BSOD with the error code IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL."

This is the exact boot loop error it causes. Every install it crashes during the Driver install part of the CUE install. 2.5.66 is the only one that caused boot loop. Version 2.4.66 and the current 1.16 version just froze my computer on install of the driver.

How would you like me to export the eventlog? I saved the custom view and exported the custom view, not sure what your looking for or where I should host it.

It worked for me! I will mention that I did have a different mouse than my Scimitar plugged in when I downloaded. Not sure if that plays a part just thought i'd mention it.

Exactly the same Error I got:
The bluescreen happens right after the "Installing Driver" message appears. After that Windows crashes while booting, over and over again. Only restoring a prior version fixed the error for me. Uninstalling 2.4.x and then installing 2.5.x worked.

Sadly I have no log or dump left - seems that restoring deletes the log...cant find one.
