How to use the Windows Reliability Tool

Recommended Posts

"When it comes to hidden gems in Windows, nothing beats the Reliability monitor tool, hidden behind a link inside of another tool that you don’t use either. Why Microsoft doesn’t shine more light on this really useful troubleshooting tool, we’ll never know.

Reliability Monitor tracks the history of your computer — any time an application crashes, hangs, or Windows gives you a blue screen of death. It also tracks other important events, like when software is installed, or Windows Updates loads a new patch." HTG

Mine doesn't look to good, but I know what happened!

Heya! Here's a update on my Reliability Monitor. I seem to be doing much better with my Computer performance. My thinking is that MS is doing a great job with the W10 Updates and that's helping. What do think think?? I think that W10 will be the best OS that MS ever built! I'm a big fan of W10 at this moment. That may change in the future. LMAO. You don't have to use Reliability Monitor; but IMHO, you're missing out on a great MS tool! Heya  @Steve K.

Would really like to hear your comments!;)

Hi There! I keep a close look on my Reliability Monitor! I haven't had any errors in 14 days. When I do get a error, I report it to MS. IMHO this helps MS make W10 a better OS with updates and patches. My performance has gotten much better then it use to be, and my thoughts are that sending my errors to MS has helped make a difference. Any way that's what I believe and I'm going to keep sending the error reports to MS. What are your thoughts? Do you use this windows tool to help you keep your PC maintained and running. Might want to give your Reliability Monitor a look  and see what's going on with your PC.;)

You may only get the error one time and if that is the case, you don't need to worry about it. However if it persists, you might want to see why you're getting the error! Here's a IE error I got . It was a one time error and so I'm not concerned.;)

Can you beat my 14 day record of 0 errors?? Show me!

Heya @Vadim Thanks for your reply. My system is running just fine also, but I still like to keep a eye on it.

Please share a screen shot of your Reliability Monitor. I would like to see how yours compares to mine!;) I'll be posting a screen shot soon that shows a perfect 10. I'll have to brag about that when it happens!xD

PS Thanks for your post. The only one so far on this thread!;)

Here you go as was promised, I'll have a perfect ten tomorrow . IMHO W10 is getting more stable every day and this graft is prof of that. I'm very happy with W10 and my thinking is it will get even better. The Reliability Monitor has a lot of interesting things going on and I think it can be a great tool for trouble shooting and maintaining your PC. Give it a look once in awhile. It doesn't cost any thing.xD. I double dog dare you to attach your Reliability Monitor graft and brag about your rig!;) Here's what HTG has to say about this windows tool and I agree! It's hard to teach old dogs new tricks, but I keep trying!;)

Nice @ACE Thanks for your post! I get those Windows Explorer errors also. I haven't figured out why yet! I don't worry much about them, but I do send a report to MS when I get one. Very nice graft my friend. Thanks for sharing it!!;) It looks like you have a well maintained rig.

Windows Explorer can stop for a number of reasons. I want to find out why?

Ran CHKDSK /r /f   Found an issue with the HDD looking at the Log.

Said (repairing the Security File Record Segment)

Will now wait to see if Windows Explorer crashes again.

Hi @ACE I'll be watching this my friend. Here's my question! Isn't  Windows Explorer now called File Explorer? Why are we getting Windows Explorer errors.

That's one reason I didn't pay much attention to the error. My Reliability log cleared after the anniversary update, so I'm starting out new.

I'm sure you researched (repairing the Security File Record Segment)  It will be very interesting to see if Windows Explorer crashes again.

Very interesting reply. I think I'll run a chkdsk and see what I get!

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms832828.aspx

Here's my log. My HP printer failed after the anniversary up date and I had to reinstall it. I also had to reinstall my internet adapter after the upgrade. I think that's all so far. I'm still checking things out! It's looking pretty good so far! Oh yea and I had to disable Bluetooth!:D

You can do a net search to see the differences between the two.

Handy Hint.

                 Instead of searching for your CHKDSK Log, use Power Shell and it puts the log report straight on your Desktop.

In your Search box Type Powershell.exe and press Enter.

In the command prompt Admin box that shows copy and paste this.

get-winevent -FilterHashTable @{logname="Application"; id="1001"}| ?{$_.providername –match "wininit"} | fl timecreated, message | out-file Desktop\CHKDSKResults.txt

Use the "r" and "f" Flags.

Always run CHKDSK from Command Prompt.

If you can't paste the script in Command Prompt like normal, Right Click on the box and choose Paste.

Hi @ACE I ran chkdsk /c from Command Prompt (Admin) It found no errors, but I couldn't get the the log on my desktop! It opened up notepad, but there wasn't any thing on notepad! Is that because there weren't any errors? Thanks friend!

Sorry! Here's Information from Event Viewer! I think I'm good and I'm going to let it rest. Thanks for your help my friend. I learned some new things tonight! I didn't think it was necessary to run the /r /f unless you found some bad sectors. I'm do a little more research on that.

Thanks! ACE

In that Log it says

WARNING!  /C parameter specified.
Your drive may still be corrupt even after running CHKDSK.

That's why using the "r" and "f" Flags are so important.

/c Flag does nothing.

      Hey!
      I have a Lenovo ideapad 330 and it comes with a Realtek audio device built in. I have had the laptop for 3 months now and suddenly my sound stops. Only bluetooth still works. when I click on the sound icon at the bottom right, the help-wizzard audio appears. This one says they have no solution. and when I right click on the icon it says: speaker settings: UNKNOWN. and when I go to the sound settings of windows in the settings menu it says that no input and output devices are available. Also my Realtek audio device is not in the list with device manager. so i can't check the drivers or reinstall them. I thought I would solve the problem by implementing the new windows update (v 1903), but that didn't help. Also restarted several times. just for clarity .. the problem was already there for the update. I've been through the entire internet but can't solve it ... Can you help?

      Greetings Sem van de Beld

      Hello,
      The improved magnifier in windows 10 is a very important tool for the visually impaired.
      The magnifier used to track the keyboard and mouse cursor without any problem until a few weeks ago when it stopped tracking keyboard cursor in both my PC and laptop.
      It does track the keyboard cursor in MS Office applications but does not do so in Chrome and other applications.
      Please advise,

      Hello, earlier today I was doing homework on my Dell Inspiron 13 7000 Windows 10 laptop and I got the little pop up that says battery is low. I ignored it like I usually did and then it said battery very low. This is usually where I get up and plug in the charger but sometimes I keep doing what im doing and then it dies and I realize I forgot to go get the charger. Thats what happened here. I left my computer open and went to get my charger. I plugged it up and waited a couple of minutes because it usually turns on by itself. I pressed the power button a couple of times after that and it still didn't turn on. I closed the computer opened it and pressed the power button and it didn't come on. I repeated this multiple times occasionally holding down the power button but nothings working. The little white light is still illuminating on the corner of the computer that signifies your computer is charging yet its not turning on. Any solutions/suggestions? Thank You!

      These details may be useful, I’ll try to specify every little detail about the issue that I can remember:
      Summary of my laptop’s specs: ASUS TUF FX505GE, i7–8750, GTX 1050Ti 4GB, 8GB RAM, SSD+HDD, Windows 10 Home Edition SL The laptop is still relatively new, just bought around 1 month ago but the issue started since around last week. At first, there was no issue at all. The lagging issue occurred whenever I unplugged my laptop from the charger, 1–2 seconds after Windows automatically switch the power plan to Power Saver mode. Suddenly, the cursor apparently disappears. When I tried to move the the mouse/trackpad to get the cursor to the bottom of the screen to show the taskbar (I hide the taskbar), I notice from the taskbar opening animation that the OS is lagging very, very bad. I also confirmed that it is lagging when I hit the Windows button and saw that the start menu opens up very slow and jagged. Related to the above, I’ve tried to fiddle with the Power Saver plan and the overall power management settings in Windows to no avail. Also have tried to reset the power plan settings to default. Still related to the above, I tried to stop Windows from switching automatically to Power Saver plan when unplugging the charger but I can’t find any helpful article in the internet. Plugging the laptop in to the power socket after the lagging appears does not solve the issue. When it is lagging, the only thing I could do is to fire up Ctrl+Alt+Del and restart, with the charger plugged in since booting up. During the Ctrl+Alt+Del screen (I don’t know the proper name for it, it’s the menu that is displayed after you hit the three keys that shows the option of Task Manager, restart, shut down, etc), I noticed that the cursor is there and I can move it smoothly without any lagging issues If I log out, the lagging issue is gone in the login screen. However, after signing in to my account again, the lagging issue comes back even after I plugged the laptop in. I have all the latest updates from the Windows Update, and also made sure that all the drivers are up-to-date. While researching for this issue, I found that the laptop battery status says “plugged in, not charging”. I managed to solve this issue after searching through the web but the main lagging issue still persists. Because I very rarely travel with my laptop, most of the time I left the laptop at my desk. However, I always plugged it in to the power socket even when the battery is already full (looks like this is the cause of the “plugged in, not charging” issue above). I have also uninstalled the Windows-related softwares that came with the laptop from ASUS, but still have the issue. I haven’t ruled out the possibility of any hardware-related cause because I haven’t tried the reset Windows option, but somehow all things are pointing out to software/OS-related issue. This issue seems to be very specific and I couldn’t find any topic about this issue in the internet. It’s very annoying when I have to use my laptop while traveling.
      Any help or insight is very much appreciated. Thank you.
