Hey hardware masters,
i have one really interesting issue which cant beat on my own.
We upgraded computer with the new samsung SSD. We did full and clean install of Windows 10. The old HDD is now only as secondary for data storage. It was completely cleaned and formatted.
With the new SSD we SOMETIME (in 70% cases) cant boot. It stuck before bios loading on black screen. When we turn off (with hard button style) and turn on the computer again it ALWAYS boot normally. Like nothing has just happened. everything is ok.
Additional, it sometimes freeze computerw hile we working/playing on it standardly. And it needed to be restarted.
We tried many advices we found on the internet. Nothing help.
- plug off the old HDD - nothing
- plug of the SSD - worked everytime but the error message show there is no bootable device - it s just a proof, the ssd is the bad guy
- plug off monitors
- changed SATA cabels and slots on MB
- IDE-AHCI changing in bios
- let windows toupgrade drivers in safe mmode
- .. and maybe some other tricks which i cant remmember right now
Do you have any extra advices? Have found the same problems on forums - people who cant boot and have blackscreen before bios cant do it everytime. Our computer always works after restart when it stack on blackscreen. And ofc the freezes while working on it are bad and it has to have connection between those problems..
Thank you for any answer.
