Hey Sean, been having a serious problem lately with my PC and a couple people believe it might be caused by my SSD failing. First of all here are my specs though:i7 2600K @ 4.8GHz
EVGA GTX 570
ASUS Maximus IV Extreme P67 (BIOS 3208)
16GB Mushkin Enhanced Redline @ 1600MHz (stock timings)
2x OCZ Vertex 4 128GB (one for OS, one for games)
WD Caviar Black 1TB 7200RPM (mass storage)
For about 2 months now, my PC will randomly shut down, restart itself and freeze at the windows logo screen ("loading windows") as it's booting up.
Everytime it does it, the motherboard shows a code "10." It then shuts down then restarts itself, freezes at the windows logo screen (loading windows), then I have to hold the restart button till it shuts down because it won't do anything. I then push the power button to boot it up again and it's fine.
It doesn't happen every time, and it's completely random on when it decides to do this for some reason. It hasn't done it for almost 2 weeks after I did the Windows repair option that showed up when it happened the previous time. I thought to myself "oh I must have fixed it," but I was very wrong. It happened to me again last night, I was so dissapointed I didn't fix it. I did the Windows repair option again, and turned off the computer.
A couple people have told me it might be my SSD failing. Would the AS SSD program you provided in the first post to see the troubleshooting work with the Vertex 4 SSD? I read in the last pages of the forums at OCZ that Vertex 4's are bugged with that program for some reason.
Before I reset the CMOS in my BIOS (another option I was told I should try) I came here hoping you can tell me if it's my SSD failing, and if that's the reason behind all this trouble i'm having. If you need any other info besides an AS SSD screenshot please let me know. I'm hoping I can get this cleared up soon, everytime I turn on my PC my heart sinks hoping it doesn't happen.
I have a thread on this problem in the motherboard section of the forum because I thought maybe it was my motherboard but now i'm not so sure. Of course, the 800D case has horrendous motherboard mounting for some reason so it might be a shortage to the motherboard? I'm not sure.
Please, any help is appreciated,i'm so
lost on this. I apologize if this is in any way confusing, I tried my best to get right to the point with the problem i'm having.
Again, if you need any other info from me on this please let me know. Hope to hear back from you soon.
