Windows not booting anymore - SrtTrail.txt error

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I updated my Nvidia drivers on saturday and played DCS. Shut the pc down and then yesterday tried to start the pc up but windows will not boot. The error code is a SrtTrail.txt BSOD error.  Automatic repair does not work and it keeps trying to reboot without success. I feel like a fresh reinstall of windows may be the only option. 


1) has anybody had this error before? If so , how did you fix it?


2) through command prompt I can get access to my files and copy them onto a usb pen. I'm planning on copying:

- DCS saved games folder 

- rs mapper  for my home cockpit switch and button settings


Is there anything else I should copy before I reinstall windows and lose all my stuff?

Salut:) my answer in french because i saw you are from Toulouse,and it will be easier to understand what i write:)


Avant de reinstaller windows.

As-tu essayé  le "mode sans echec"?

Ce mode de demarrage est un mode minimum generique pour eviter les problèmes de drivers.

si non,fais le  et désactive ta carte video,(desinstalle la).

Ensuite ton ordinateur va redemarrer avec le driver generique.

Cherche sur le web un driver different,plus recent ou même plus ancien.

Installe le et redemarre.

si le problème persiste change une nouvelle fois de driver.

Si aucun driver ne fonctionne tu dois te resoudre à renvoyer ta carte video pour que le fournisseur te la change.


Encore une observation:

pour installer un driver nvidia,il est fortement conseillé de le faire en "mode sans echec" avec  "DDU":



Ce truc permet d'assurer une installation propre du driver sans risque de croisement de fichiers avec le driver precedent.


Autres soluces:



bon courage

What causes the Srttrail.txt BSOD error?

Below is a list of the possible causes:

  • Installing corrupt software
  • Hardware issues (such as a power supply overload or implementing incompatible hardware)
  • Malware infection that causes corruption in Windows Registry

Many users have also reported this error after installing Windows 10 version 1809. Microsoft has fixed it in their latest update.

MSI B450 GAMING PLUS MAX 7B86vHB1(Beta version) BIOS, AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB, 32GB G.SKILL TridentZ RGB (4 x 8GB) DDR4 3200 CL14, Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS. My G2 is DEAD, I'll get VR again when headsets will be better.
