Something is wrong, can't figure out what.


Hi there and thanks to anyone who's taking their time in assisting me on this regard.

Basically, it all started after I've went ahead and benchmark'd the entire pc, it went great, everything gave good results as usual, until Windows froze and I was forced to hard reset the PC.

Then, it wouldn't load, It would have gone all the way to the spinning circle and would have just froze their. I was thinking okay maybe something happend to the Windows files so might as well boot up with a recovery flash drive.

Well, it wouldn't load either, blue screen with cursor. I tried pretty much anything I could of thought of. Until I was wondering maybe one of the HDD's just died on me. And it did? I've unplugged one of the HDD's and the windows boots up as usual. But it's like something happend to the PC, even then. BIOS is acting kinda weird, when saving and existing it will just go into a blank black screen with the little "_" thingy basically doing nothing until reset which brings it back up and working. I went ahead and plugged a brand new Samsung 970 250GB that I bought a few days earlier to install windows on it, when installing after all steps completed it would have just went into blank blue screen with cursor and then again, hard reset and going into blank black screen. I've prioritize my older SSD that has my Windows on it and got on my old Windows. But I can't figure out what's happening, why can't the PC install Windows properly on a brand new SSD? Why does the Bios acting weird and how come my HDD just literally died and pc won't load when it's connected? I've also tested 3 different flash drives for installing windows to make sure that it's nothing with corrupt files.


Please if anyone has any idea and could shed some light on this, really clueless at this point.

You think it has something to do with the BIOS? I thought maybe flashing to see if it sorts anything out.
