  1. How do I diagnose a dead SSD and black screen, so no way to see a BSOD


    I suspect my SSD has died. I had been getting strange mini stalls, and finally a bunch of overlapping warnings, notices, video went streaky, etc. and finally degraded to nothing.
    In the beginning I had a series of four maybe five beeps (once) from the motherboard
    and three beeps when I was fooling with the memory.

    I can get to the trouble shooting screen:
    auto repair didnt work
    restore didnt work
    and I could not get into safe mode.

    i have tried taking my four sticks of memory out and trying them in different slot pairs.

    I have a Windows Recovery Drive USB, but I dont know what to with it.
    also, I think I have an image on my back up if I buy a new HDD, is transferring do able?


    Specs:
    Windows 10, updates are current, version unknown.
    Asrock 990FX KILLER FATALITY
    ASUS Geforce GTX 1060 6GB
    4 sticks Corsair 8mg ram 1333 mgz
    WD SSD 500G Im pretty sure.
    Corsair RM650I Power supply.

    Thanks in advance.
    BTW my skills are fair, but out of date, but I do my own builds so I am somewhat competent when thing are running OK.

    :)

    Black Screen after Log on


    So this is not a BSOD ? Have a Windows 10 disc or USB Flash Drive made ? How are you getting to task manager Ctrl.+Alt+Del ? Any cursor on screen ?
