    Hi guys,
    My PC won't start up. It makes it a black screen and gets stuck on "verifying pool data page"
    I've attached a screen shot
    I've tried various troubleshooting but no luck yet.
    I've reset CMOS (couldn't find button so I took battery out for a couple minutes)
    I've disconnected and reconnected my Ram, Graphics Card and even HDD chords. Everything looks tight I don't see any loose wires or anything.
    I've messed around with bios settings alot. I've tried "use optimized default settings"
    And in advanced settings I've tried changing the order of boots (something along those lines)
    No luck :( I'm starting to think I need a new hdd?

    My specs are below any help or suggestions would be great. Let me know what you think I should do. Last resort would be taking it into a specialist as they're just so costly, but I will if I have to.

    Thanks, Yac

    Nvidia 950 Gtx (this is an old picture I've upgraded graphics)

    There is a clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard just to the left of the battery



    The error you have is often a BIOS problem, HOWEVER it may be caused by faulty hardware.
    Try the above first and if no success see if the computer will boot from a disc or usb presuming you can get to boot options

    Did you try booting from a disc or usb on a boot disc of some manner as I recommended
    It would not matter if that was Linux or a Windows 10 installation disc
    as here
    https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000474.htm
    Point 6 on the link

    I do not recommend you follow the suggestion on the link about erasing the hard drive, just try with it disconnected as the drive is not necessary of course to boot
    I do recommend you try with just one stick of ram and change those over
    As explained on my reply and on the link it can be faulty hardware which is preventing the loading completion of the desktop management interface

    Tried clearing cmos, did not work.
    I tried booting from USB. It took me to windows setup page but all options failed. Windows installation, upgrade, startup repair, troubleshoot and system restore all failed. Random errors with each one.
