    ok...just got home...I'm in a turkey coma

    Why isnt there a reply button at the bottom of every post?? or am i missing it because of "TURKEY BLINDNESS"

    Nootch...yup...did all that...naked with one or first program install...and yep ...same would boot all way to colored screen(right before win login page) and snag...then ...cntrl-alt-del...and immediately run HP diagnostics..which now showed BRAND NEW HARDRIVE with multiple sectors with damage ....recommendation: remove all important data immediately.,,,from there (with same hdd) went into recovery options,,NO DICE nothing worked and win recovery was no longer offering me "change start-up options" it was just GONE. I was able to get into windows through safe -mode a couple of the times. So i grabbed another hdd...cleared it down to all unallocated space and installed again and here I am ...not wanting to re-start for fear of crashing permanently and missing FINALS this weekend. my install disk was purched at staples and i came from win 7 pro.

    ...I wonder if farts that gobble and crapping feathers are symptoms of TURKEY COMA ?

    I just realized that if i'm unwilling to re-boot at the present guys cant really help me...huh ? ...oh of you guys had commented that you never heard of Graphics cards causing these kinds of probs. Well neither have I; but I have heard of GPU driver update/installs doing things like this ..several times ...and 90% of them Nvidea.

    Windows 10 Education 64 Bit

    Could be a motherboard fault, SATA controller maybe? Not sure how you prove that though. I'd swap in a new SATA cable for that drive. How old is this motherboard? What OS was on it before 8.1? Any issues with that OS?

    I'm running a GT 640 on this PC and a GT 610 on my other desktop. Latest catalyst on both and both running Windows 8.1 64 bit. I haven't had any of your issues with the default Windows driver or the latest Catalyst from NVidia.
