Windows 8 and 8.1 Forums

PC really messed up

  1. #11

    As I have stated many times my PC gets the error message when I try to boot the Windows disk and it restarts and I have updated my specs on my profile and haven't overclocked at all

    Also this things runs a lot better with Windows 8.1

    Thank you for filling out your specs. It helps us tremendously. Nice rig BTW.

    Not sure of the timeline of when you changed out hardware and how that might effect your problem. We assume all of it is compatible. Yes?

    You might want to make sure the CPU, Mem strips, and everything else is seated properly if you haven't already done so. Inspect everything to make sure nothing fried. By all means unplug the unit before doing so and be careful of static electricity.

    Does it have UEFI BIOS? I'm assuming so since it's a newer MoBo.

    OK so you attempted reinstall. How far into the process does it get before it gives you the error message? And what a poorly designed little unhappy smiley that comes with that message, eh?!! The design team that released that should be demoted to the mail room! By all means, no offense to those who work a mail room.

    Just looked up your MoBo and it does have UEFI BIOS. Are all settings correct there?

    Everything is seated correctly and it restarts after it loads windows files on the disk

    Thanks for that.

    Ok, so it loads the files, but upon sequential boot it stops with the warning. The trouble with this silly warning is that it gives no code or anything of value to go on.

    You had 8.1 loaded on this SSD before, correct?

    Yes it ran fine

    Ok I tried removing each stick of ram once and tried a copy of Windows 7 and it went to a BSOD after loading the files so I'm going to assume this is a problem with my SSD?

    Yes. I'm thinking it's hardware if it ran 8.1 before. So many times with these gaming rigs it's the heat that causes trouble as you probably know.

    Do you have another HD to slip in it? Test the other as a slave?

    Well I can run to Microcenter tomorrow and get another SSD and I'll buy another kit of ram while I'm there since I'm about to run MemTest right now

    Sounds like Tony is correct, it is most likely the SSD. It's happened to me a few times and MicroCenter swapped the SSD's, no problem at all!
