I started running into this issue a week ago where I was just browsing the web and suddenly web pages were failing to load but were working fine on my laptop. I went to click the task bar and the little loading icon came up on my mouse.. after a minute it proceeded to tell me Windows had stopped responding and I could close it or wait. On clicking that dialogue box the loading icon appeared again and the box didn't disappear leading to that crashing too. I decided to turn the computer off by holding the button.
On restart the computer hung on the boot circle for ages, I proceeded in turning it off and on till it reached the startup repair screen. I tried to repair windows but there was nothing wrong with it. I eventually got it to boot after waiting 10/15 minutes.
All worked fine until I ran into the same problem of the taskbar / windows crashing and not responding. I decided to perform a system restore to before the problems started happening at startup repair, thinking a dodgy windows update had happened. This did not solve anything.
On repeated attempts at finally loading into windows I've had several scenarios occurring.. windows cannot seem to find a network adaptor sometimes; When this occurs I have gone to restart the computer.. where again it just hangs. On one crash it proceeded to a blue screen of death DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. I could not figure out what was up as no icons under drivers appear to have any exclamation icons by them.
This problem is getting worse and worse now I am lucky to boot into the os, and within a few minutes it's crashing, where as before it could be okay for 30 mins or an hour. It is practically unusable and I'm not sure what's wrong.
I have ran an sfc /scannow which showed no faults with the operating system.
I have downloaded and ran software to check the state of my ssd and other hard drives. My ssd has 14tb of writes, and is at 96% health. My other hard drives are without fail.
I ran windows mem test which showed no faults on screen, but failed to boot into os to display me the final results.
My computer I built myself consists of:
Crucial MX100 256gb SSD (OS Drive)
WD 1tb HDD
Seagate 500gb HDD
8GB of HyperX beast RAM
ASrock z77 pro4 motherboard
Corsair CX750M PSU
MSI R9 280x
Running Windows 10 64 bit.
I'm not sure where to go from here, I'm starting to feel like it's some hardware at fault here as a) the problem is getting progressivly worse random hangings c) Scanning the os displays nothing wrong, system restoring hasn't altered the problem.
Ran this computer for 2 years and have never ran into an issue with it till now.
Could someone give me some advice as to what to do next, or what might be wrong?
EDIT: I've been trying to run the sysnative BSOD dump .exe in your sticky but running it from desktop it gets about half way and then spams waiting for tasks to complete while getting nowhere and doesn't leave any traces of files. I cannot access My Doccuments anymore as they are stored on my D:\ drive which file exploring seems to not be able to locate anymore. D drive can be seen in Device Manager, but not under Disk management. I used it to link my library files as to not take space on my ssd. I've rebooted 3 times and still can't access D Drive anymore.
Computer is taking at least 30 seconds to post now.
