  1. Hi, I've just built a new PC, and when installing windows from USB, my computer gets to the "getting files ready for installation" section, will get anywhere between 20% and 80% complete, and then restart, bringing me back to the first "Install now" screen. In a live linux environment, the computer will stay on for a few mins, and then freeze randomly. Does anybody know what this is caused by?

Thanks for the help

  5. Hi, I recently built a computer and when installing windows 10 i kept getting the "kernel mode heap corruption" BSOD. I have checked my memory and it is known good, but whenever i try to run Memtest or any other diagnostic tool my system crashes and powers off. I have tried running a linux USB on the machine and it works just fine, but whenever I try to install drivers or install the os my system also immideatly crashes and powers off. I can't flash the bios as my samsung motherboard bios can't be updated without having windows already installed. I have checked for thermal issues and they
