Hi, 

 

After torrenting Fallout 4 yesterday, my PC BSOD'ed while it was installing. Then whenever I tried to reboot the system, it would always BSOD. 

 

I then took out the single drive in the system, which is a 120GB Transcend SSD, and reformatted it on a seperate system. I also shredded it using McAfee's software, as well as removing the volume using Disk Management. I then created a USB boot drive using the Windows 10 media tool. 

 

When I tried booting from the USB to reinstall Windows 10, the computer still gives me a BSOD after going through post. I highly suspect there is a virus somewhere and I really need to get this computer up and running again. 

 

Will changing the entire harddrive to a new one help? 

 

I am open to any and all suggestions to how to fix this computer, I have around 3 weeks to get this done before my next semester starts in school.

 

System Specs:

 

i7-6700k

Asus Z170-K

Sapphire Nitro+ RX470

G.Skill RipJaws 2400MHz 16GB 

Cryorig H7 CPU cooler

Seasonic M2-II Modular 620W PSU

120GB Transcend SSD

Start with these free, bootable hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html

Note that there aren't any decent diagnostics available for SSD's.  The best test is to try another hard drive and see if the problem persists

Depending on where the BSOD occurs, you may try booting from the USB without having the SSD attached - and see if that causes a BSOD (if not, then the SSD is suspect).

I've tried on a spare SSD, still BSOD. And I also tried booting from the USB without any drives attached, and the system still BSOD... Tried running Avira System Rescue off another boot USB, managed to get to the Avira page where it tells you that the PC will reboot, then I just get a perpetual black screen.. Losing hope quite quickly right now.

Another page that might help:  http://www.carrona.org/strpdown.html

It's a way to isolate hardware problems without having to boot to Windows

Good luck!
