Hey peoples

So. Yesterday morning the PC worked fine. Last night it refused to load Windows (10) but rather froze on the logo, with the whirly loader. Forced shut down, tried again, same deal. Next time it said "Starting Windows repair", but froze. Next time it said it too, and the next time it didn't. It hasn't said it since. I left it sitting on the frozen screen for about a half an hour, and it gave an error message "Boot disk inaccessible". Unhooked everything, reset CMOS, checked BIOS, reseated memory, ran memory diagnostics, etc... Problem continues.

So I put in a brand spanking new SSD assuming the old one was to blame (as it had become a bit sluggish anyway, being a few years old and all) and went to install new Windows from an official USB stick. And up comes Windows logo and the whirly loading thingy.... and it freezes. I just don't know what to do anymore. Help, please?

Thank you, hamluis, for your reply. Sadly though, it didn't help with the issue. In this while I have replaced the CPU fan and rechecked BIOS, and the problem persists. Truly boggling.

Try these free diagnostics for starters:  http;//www.carrona.org/initdiag.html

Might not help with the SSD, but if there's another HDD in the system it'll help with that.

 

This might help a bit with troubleshooting:  http://www.carrona.org/strpdown.html

Good luck!

Thank you usasma.

The problem seems sorted now. I got a new battery for CMOS, which didn't help. But I discovered that disabling my LAN chip in he BIOS did. At this point I don't even care it would've had a rather simple solution to start with, I'm just happy it works. Bleeping computers!
Thank you everyone for the spiritual support as well!  :crazy:
