Recently I was playing a game and my screen froze and after a while a force powered off my computer. However, it continued to crash when booting up, and I decided to completely reset my hard drive and reinstall windows. When I did so, the Windows installer would either fail to recognize my ssd, sometimes it would give me an error along the lines of "windows cannot install required files" partway through the download, and sometimes it would get as far as the reboot and then freeze completely when rebooting, forcing me to power it off again and go back to the blue screens. 


Thinking it might be a problem with my ssd, I tried another one and the same thing continued to happen. I eventually decided to try installing Windows 8.1 for kicks and it actually worked, but there were multiple drivers missing that should be there on startup. Most notably my network driver, forcing me to use a usb dongle that acts as a driver allowing me to connect to the internet. I'm fairly certain my computer is supposed to use killer network drivers, so I tried installing them but it caused another crash and failed to install the drivers. I tried updating from windows 8.1 to 10 as well, but it got as far as looking for and installing updates and then froze, forcing me to reinstall windows 8 again. I'm thinking it may be a driver issue causing the crashes and the error code is 0x000001d3, but I'm not sure and in desperate need of help fixing this issue.
