My pc has had a tendency to crap out as soon as it goes into sleep mode (freezes, takes forver to load things, ect) typically I just reset my pc and it goes back to normal. Today I got to my PC and once again it froze shortly after use. Upon reseting I can no longer get to windows or past the bios. I see a brief stutter upon powering on, with a blackscreen and hyphen that moves around for a few seconds. I think this same issue occured a few months ago, and I remedied it by unplugging the pc and leaving it for a day or so.


Power supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 80+ GOLD 750W Fully Modular

Cpu: Intel Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.5 GHz

Mobo: ASUS Z170-P LGA 1151 Intel Z170

Case: NZXT Phantom 410

Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB DDR4

Graphics: XFX Radeon R9 390

Sandisk z400s 256gb sata 3 ssd.


Windows 10


I have tried clearing cmos multiple times (the clock reset so I believe it worked) by using the battery method and headers on mobo. I have also switched the sata cable attaching my sdd to my mobo. Finally, I also tried updating the bios (which I did successfully) however none of this has resolved my issue. As mentioned above, I had this same problem months ago and thought my computer was ruined and sure enough it randomly started working days later. 




Looking for a potential solution, any responses would be GREATLY apreciated as I have assignments and other valueable data that I need to acess ASAP.

It sounds to me like a failing hard drive. I would either pull the drive and plug it into another computer or boot from an Ubuntu live USB (whichever is easiest for you) and see if you can still access the drive. If so, I'd get started saving your data ASAP.
