So, I've been having month long problems for this computer, and I'm not sure what to do, initially I thought I had a MOBO virus, but it turns out ADATA sent me two bum ssd.  Although I've been getting the same issue very rarely with my intel SSD and I'm starting to think something's wrong internally. 



Apparently, after I reinstalled my windows after it had been corrupted, it forze up twice trying to install the data to the desktop, I as attempting to make a windows 8.1 boot disc.  I mangaed to do it after thew second reboot as it didn't freeze during the setup.  


It only froze once when my windows tech guy tried to use the run command prompt to bring up a window, the second time it froze at 64% setting up, but that time it got through installation. 


IT hasn't frozen since, but I'd likie to run a diagnostic program to see what hardware, if any , is failing, or if it's just windows 8.1 messing up because it's still got problems. Below is the original thread from where I thought it was a virus.

Please download and run speccy:


  • Go to Piriform's website, and click the big download.png button.
  • Next, click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version.
  • You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.
  • After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
  • Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
  • Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot
  • You will see the following prompt:
  • Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard
  • Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the p22004370.gif button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.
  • Congrats! You have just posted your specs!
