No doubt I’m getting it…it will be my first time using Raedon as well.

Card bought…I can only pick 2 out of 3 games off the voucher.

Kind of excited to finally do this upgrade.

Since you’re switching over to a AMD card I recommend using this to remove the nvidia drivers once your card arrives

Well… My dad’s PC keeps running into boot problems again. Before it was missing a boot file so we reinstalled win 10. Now after a couple weeks it’s just saying failed to start up and unable to auto-repair PC. Repair with the cd worked, but I don’t know why this stuff keeps happening. Is it really the SSD being bad??

My guess would be bad sectors/blocks on the ssd.

In command prompt type: wmic diskdrive get status
you want it to comeback as “OK”

You’ll need a 3rd party application for a more thorough check of an SSD’s SMART utilities (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology).

This was the cloned drive, right? Did you go for a clean install after the initial problems? If you did, did you opt for the quick format or full format? Full format scans for bad sectors, quick does not.

It wouldn’t hurt to run CHKDSK in command prompt either.
