Possible SSD Death/Boot Issue

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP


I've been experiencing issues on my 3 or so month old rig. Lately it's been freezing, blue screening and when trying to boot, goes straight to "Start PXE over IPv4". In the startup menu, the SSD doesn't show as a boot option, only the IPv4


The odd thing is that I'll leave it shut down for say 30 minutes or so and it'll boot fine, work for a little bit then start the cycle again.


I haven't gotten the error code from the blue screen unfortunately, it flashes then restarts, too quick to read or take a photo.


I suspect the SSD boot drive has failed, but I'm not very hardware savvy to say definitely so.

Just wanted to diagnose the issue before I claim on warranty.


My specs are:

Cooler Master MasterLiquid ARGB AIO Cooler

Samsung 860 QVO 2.5in SATA SSD 2TB (Boot Drive)

Seagate Barracuda 2TB ST2000DM008 3.5in Hard Drive

Samsung 860 EVO 500GB SSD

ROG Strix B365-G Gaming Motherboard

Intel Core i7 9700 Processor

Phanteks Eclipse P360X RGB Tempered Glass Black

Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64bit OEM

MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio 11GB

Deepcool CF-120 ARGB Fan 120mm 3 Pack

Super Flower Leadex III Gold 850W Power Supply

Team T-Force Night Hawk RGB 32GB (2x16GB) 3200MHz CL16 DDR4


Any help you can provide, would be greatly appreciated.

I would guess your diagnosis is correct but to be 100% sure...


1) Open Control Panel (must be CP, Settings does not have this ooption)

2) Open System

3) Click Advanced tab

4) Under Start UP & Recovery click Settings

5) Tick "Write an event automatically", untick "Automatically restart" and set the Write debugging information drop down to "Automatic memory dump"

6) Hit apply


Now when the system BSODs it will not reboot automatically allowing you to read the error.
