Somehow messed up my new pc.

Before I explain my problem, here is my current pc setup:

Ryzen 7 3700x

3080 FE

WD_Black nvme 1 tb

Ripjaw V 3600 ddr4

Asus tuf gaming

750 GT evga psu

(AIO h100i not that it matters but my cpu IS cool in case anyone's wondering.)


Now I have had a couple of pc i built and when they would blue screen after a couple of years I would not be too bummed an could usually just replace the part I though was faulty and it usually worked.


Yesterday I started building the pc I put in the beginning and everything was going well. I did the normal usb install to the nvme and had functioning windows. I had it working for 30 minutes and then I decided to install some drivers. I did not install any mobo drivers (idk if this has anything to do with what happened but I'm just trying to factor out as much as possible.) , But I did go ahead and download GeForce experience. I downloaded it and logged in and clicked download on newest driver from getforce experience. Here is where the problem occured: so it began downloading but when it was almost done I thought it cancelled the download or something like that so I clicked download again. This time it finished completely and that's when I selected "Express install" it started installing and then I got BSOD. Ever since then I cannot even boot into windows. I have tried to boot everyway possible with the graphics card no nvme, without gpu I cant even see. I have tried with another gpu and nvme. Whenever I try to start with nvme it does the startup repair but BSOD into error 0xc000021a or critical process dies. I am really running out of ideas and am losing hope. My friend has made the same system and has had no problems so far so I don't think it is compatibility issues. Thanks for your help in advance.

Reseat your RAM, double check all other insertions are properly connected from SSD's to cabling.


Basically I would tear it apart and rebuild the PC from scratch.


Don't think you need motherboard drivers, you're fine there.



Since your father has the same system, you have a spare system to test parts if what I suggested doesn't fix things.

You may have managed to corrupt your OS, perhaps a clean install would be the quickest way to get your pc up and running again

I have reseated the ram, turns out they where in the wrong slot BUT that was not the problem either way. I cannot reinstall windows because I simply cannot boot into the USB or the nvme without bluescreening. I have checked every cable and replugged everything. I am still having the same problem. I don't have another pc to test parts on because my friend that has the same build lives in another state.

Update on this: I will try to get another ssd and completely disconnect my nvme drive to see if i can create new boot drive for windows from the new ssd. If i still bluescreen then it is probably a hardware issue :/
