  1. OK as thread name suggests really lol, I will try to start from the beginning and give all the info and things I have done, fingers crossed you can shed some light on this issue.
    I run on a self build pc
    gigabyte gaming 7 mother board
    intel i7 devils canyon pros
    16gig Kingston ram
    nvidia gtx 760 graphics
    Kingston hyperx 250gb ssd card (problem drive maybe??)
    2x 1 tb hard drives for games ect
    water cooled
    Windows 10

    about 4 weeks ago my baby boy found my surge board in my cupboard and flicked the power switch on and off about 4 times made the rig shut down and not want to turn on again, removed power cable waited 5 mins re attached and started. thought all was good and was a close call (child lock now on PC desk cupboard lol).
    about 2 hours later PC restarted on its own, does this at-least 2 times a day error message started showing about this time but every time I restart pc for it it starts the check and repair but never finishes just skips to login screen. so done the normal ran a virus check and nothing showed, ran sfc / scannow it showed all was fine no problems detected also ran chkdsk that was fine too then thought hmm sounds like my ssd drive is on its way out so downloaded kingston tool and done a drive diagnostic that came back that drive is fine......at this point I m freaking lost why the dame message will not go, my only thought is that for some reason the PC on restart is failing to do the disk check and repair there for keeps showing the message. I have also run repair tool with windows 10 usb and it fails to do it says there was a problem and to try another option...

    any help or advice greatly received ty

    Do you have a recovery disk? OS on media?

    Turn off 'automatic restart on error' in CMOS?

    What are the error descriptions / error codes?

    Likewise, if any listed in Event Viewer?

    Have you run chkdsk to see if file system has errors? Result?

    (My boy did similar many years ago. Got his BS in IT and now manages IT at a mid-sized manufacturer.)

    Seems as though a few files on your SSD are slightly scrambled. If we can determine which files, maybe we can remove them and replace with good ones.

    'restart on error' is in BIOS (aka CMOS)- but varies by maker so you have to use the manual to find it

    event viewer is part of Administrative Tools - you can reach it by typing 'event' in search windows box

    sfc 'ok' makes us confident about key OS files
    chkdsk 'ok' means file system is probably 'ok'
    kingston utility 'ok' gives some confidence in operation of SSD

    leaving hundreds of non-system files in which one or two key ones might have a minor flaw which results in the 'meltdown'

    making a backup is a pretty good idea at this time.

    Lastly, it could be UEFI is preventing your recovery USB from running properly...I honestly do not know enough about this or about your specific system to advise. Possibly the motherboard maker or the forum for your motherboard would give insight. ... see https://askleo.com/why-uefi/

    Let's do a wait & see for a bit. Check Event Viewer for further errors (you can disregard Event ID 41 - it just says it restarted after an error).
