Hello. My SSD: Ssd Samsung Evo 850 250 GB, motherboard Asus Sabertooth Z97 Mark 2 UEFI,

So i want to write about my issues with Windows 10 just before format, when i was on MBR partition. I want to be sure that my SSD is fine or not.
So listen.

Windows 10 get somehow broken.
First. When starting Windows 10 boot loader starts by "preparing automatic repair" and diagnosing pc. Then after this i get screen with Your pc did not start correctly or Automatic Repair couldnt repair your pc . And when i click restart then Windows 10 boot fine. So i am needing 2 boots to boot properly to windows. Automatic repair started every restart of pc, every start of pc.

Next.When i was in Windows 10. Task manager and event viewer was not responding and some of the applications stop responding. I was clicking and nothing happening.


Somebody with the same SSD Samsung Evo 850 get similiar issues and ssd was faulty.

He said:
" From this point everything went to hell, and after multiple windows reinstalls here's some of what happens:
- Windows installs but errors immediately follows;
- Some windows updates install but eventually start failing until windows update fails completely;
- Windows installs, updates install but eventually windows fails to load and enters repair mode claiming startup errors;
- Programs stop working for no apparent reason, some examples: Browsers won't run, file associations disappear (class registration errors), explorer;
- Driver problems with peripherals,
- File system corruption errors;
- I got situations where the computer would get stuck in a reboot/system restore/repair loop
"


Its similiar issues.

That was similiar symptoms to my symptoms what i get before format. And he change ssd and issues are gone.

.

So thats mean i have faulty ssd or not necessary?


Also this is my smart , look and check:

Smart is fine, no errors in memtest86, and i have normal good SSD benchmark scores. Any ideas why i was get problems? Is this related to my SSD or more software cause?

The automatic repair is actuated by a problem with Windows.

 

From what is present in the S.M.A.R.T. attrubutes it doesn't look like there is a problem with the SSD.  But you can run the SeaTools for Windows to see if it finds any problems.

 

Please download and run SeatTools for Windows.
 
Before the installation begins you will be prompted to either Decline or Accept the terms of the installation, click on I Accept.
 
Once the installation begins you will see an image similar to the one below.

1.  SeaTools for Windows will search for HDDs and SSDs on your computer.  Please remove any external storage devices connected via USB ports.
 
2.  Detected Drives will list the HDDs and SSDs found.  Place a check mark in the drive box you want to run the scan on.
 
3.  You will see Basic Tests above Detected Drives, move the mouse pointer over this.
 
4.  A menu will open with options for the different scans, please click on Long Generic Test
 
5.  This will start the scan.  When the scan is complete you will see the result under Test Status , please post the results in your topic.

6.  The test will indicate either Pass or Fail.  Post the results of the scan in your topic.
 
7.  Click on Help, then click on View Log File.  If the scan failed take a screen shot of the Log File and post it in your topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Ok before i run seatools.

 

Somebody with the same SSD Samsung Evo 850 get similiar issues and ssd was faulty.


He said:
"The system repair and failures to boot would definitely imply bad drive, though you should do a cursory check of things like cables. For what it's worth I had a 250 GB EVO 850 fail in exactly the same manner a few weeks ago. Dropped in a new 850 pro and all is well."


I am little confused. Maybe it is something with disk like he is describing? ( he get the same sdd like me Evo 850 250 GB ). System repair and failure to boot always definitely imply bad drive?

To confirm the condition of this SSD you need to run the SeaTools for Windows.  It could just coincidence that that other person's SSD failed, it doesn't indicate that yours if failing.
