    Have you performed other diagnostics? Here's a list of free one's that I suggest: Hardware Diagnostics
    I am sorry I did not see this response. I re-imaged my computer by using another ASUS computers disk that I created. It wound up thinking that my desktop was my laptop.

    I did perform diagnostics. It was simply just my HDD. I know have an SSD and I am quite pleased with it. Makes me wish my HDD crashed sooner.

    Thanks for all your help
