Believe My SSD is dying, What do you guys think?

Hey LTT, 

 

Let me start by saying the some of the problems I've been having have been occurring for almost a year. Do I Think They are all related? No, but I do think my SSD is part of the issue.

(Note: SSD only holds OS, and a couple games I play on steam.)

 

I'm not here to tell you what I think though, I'm here to hear what you guys think and to seek help to fix my problems.

 

Problems that have been occurring for about a year  

  • When booting PC, it will get stuck on motherboard screen. If I hit the restart button it will restart just fine and go to login screen. (once in about a month it will boot without needing to hit the restart button).
  • Sometimes the PC will freeze, requiring me to "hard kill" it (by holding down power button). Sometimes after doing this, the PC will power back up as if there is a little ghost in my room playing games with me.

Recent occurring problems

  • Programs have start to not respond, more often than they should.
  • Notifications from action center don't go away till restart.
  • problems.PNG
  • No longer can open action center

Now with the info gave, what are somethings I can do to get to the bottom of this?

  

  •  

Thanks for the help that will be coming my way shortly. If I left anything important out please let me know.

you could start by using crystal disk info or other monitoring softwares for see if there's any issues with the disk

 

your issue makes me suspect your bios more tbh

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

crystal disk reads that both drives are good. 100%.

Now what?

tried running in safemode to see if any of the issues still persists?

or try re-installing windows if that's an option
