I recently suffered a power brief power outage which casued my Windows 10 PC to reboot.
When it began its reboot cycle, I got a "BSOD" with a notice saying:
Page fault in non-paged area
It then began rebooting itself and then this appeared:
KMODE Exception not handled
And then it began rebooting again where it eventually came up with:
Driver IRQL not less or equal
It just continually reboots into "Automatic startup repair" before showing these faults and rebooting again - stuck in this endless cycle.
To make matters worse, my BIOS is configured to not boot from USB drives so although I could make a Windows 10 recovery USB drive from another PC, I would be able to boot from it. Even worse, my BIOS is configured to fastboot so I can't even get into my BIOS to change these boot settings! No amount of pressing DEL or F2 can get me into the BIOS config utility
What can I do to interrupt this BSOD loop and resume normal operations?
For info: I have a Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7 motherboard, and a wireless logitech keyboard - I don't have access to a wired KB The OS is booting from an Intel 600p M.2 PCIe SSD drive. I have 2x GTX-1080 cards but not sure that's relevant unless something has gone wrong with the nVidia drivers.
