Changed to correct place.
I think this is because of hard drive failure, some files are lost/broken.
You can try to do as asked, put the Windows installation disk and run repair.
That has worked with my case.

Yeah it worked once and it was okay for a few days after that. It's been like that for the past 3 days now. I just haven't had the time to fix it yet. Maybe I just try to install the windows again and let's see if it helps....

Check BIOS and see if the motherboard has the right device that it boots from otherwise I would reinstall windows again

If the problem is (like I think) your harddrive related, then I suggest you buy a new HD and then do the trick ...
Or totally reformat current HD.

Holla, I was able to install windows again and the diagnostics said that the SDD should be okay but it took like 3rd or 4th boot until the same notification came again. Fucking piece of shit. (sorry for the language) My nerd friend will take a look at it tomorrow but I guess it's still the SSD that's failing. Anyway if I have to get a new one via warranty it might take a will. I wanna play byyhyy.

Check if you can update the firmware on the SSD. Some have had problems with losing data in earlier SSDs, which have been fixed by flashing a newer fw on there.

Oh really? That's a bad luck.. Hope you can fix it mate.
But this is just showing why I don't put Windows to SSD... Too untrustable :/
Hope to see you soon.

Back up, found an old WD Black that I had Win7 running on. Now for 1000 windows updates and finding all the drivers for the new hardware. Good fun.

F**k Corsair.

Well, given that this is a temp solution until I get a replacement SSD I'm not about to put in one percent more effort than I have to. Old drive's up and running fine now.

So either I have the worst luck ever or Samsung SSD's are full of shit. New drive new problems. Blue screen and everything again. Away from the games at least a week. Probably 2-3 weeks since i'm flying to New York next thursday (4th of july) and will come back on the 17th. Anyways just so you know and like my hero Arnold said: I'll be back!


And to Jaskaman have a great time in Thailand. Can't say goodbye today Wink
