  1. I'm pretty sure I just bricked my computer...


    So, I had an issue for a while on my computer. I finally looked it up, and the issue could be fixed by a chkdsk.

    It failed, and then I was in a recovery loop. I looked through the cmd prompt (which was the only thing I could use), and found that the boot had an issue. The computer wouldn't let me fix it, so I gave up and got a recovery drive, because that was the only thing I didn't do yet. And the instructions said to start the usb things first, so I set that up...

    I plugged in the drive, and I turned it on. The power button lit up...

    The drive was getting power, but the keyboard and mouse weren't getting signal.

    No picture. And I can't do anything.

    It stayed this way for two days.

    I'm pretty sure it's because of the boot not working.

    ... Is that it for my computer? Anything I can do to get at least the recovery loop back?

    :)

  2. Pentium M

    Not sure what I'm looking at. Though when I do go to Options and then CPU it lists my CPU
    as Intel Pentium M processor 1.73 GHz, and then under that it lists speed: 799.9 MHz
    and then features and cache size.I ran the benchmark test and don't understand all
    those numbers, but while testing I checked CPUZ and it still says it is running at 800 MHz.

  3. Pretty sure Windows 10 fried my SSD

    Hi Marcin,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. Let me assist you.

    You may also update the motherboard chipset drivers to check if that helps.

    Refer the below steps to update the driver.

    • Press “Windows + X” and select Device manager.
    • Select “Processors” and expand the driver icon.
    • Right click on the “chipset driver” icon and click on
      Update
      .
    • Follow the onscreen instructions to update the driver.
    • Restart the computer and check if the issue is resolved.


    Further, I suggest you to perform a Clean install of Windows on the current SSD using an ISO file and check if the issue gets resolved. Further you can go for a disk change.
    Refer the thread link below for steps to perform a Clean install.

    Issues with Radeon 7400 M graphics in windows 10

    Hi Praveen,

    Thanks for the post. The problem seems to be from Microsoft . I have followed below steps

    • I have downloaded the software Leshcat’s Catalyst 15.7 WHQL UnifL from http://leshcatlabs.net/downloads_unfil/
    • I have unistalled all my graphics softwares and drivers related to radeon 7400 M.
    • The Catalyst 15.7 WHQL UnifL contains both intel and radeon drivers. So install intel drivers and reboot.
    • install radeon drivers and reboot.
    Now my system seems to be perfectly fine and no issues with drivers. Booting normally with out any issues. I turned on windows update and 7400 M drivers automatically installed from Microsoft.

    After the reboot again the same problem. Now I am not sure how can I disable to download only 7400 M updates keeping all other updates on.

    kindly suggest.
