    Hey guys!!! Hoping this is a simple and common issue, but probably not lol. Sooooo I built a computer for gaming a few months ago and I have not had any issues up until now. I was playing Ring of Elysium (PC game on steam) and it started lagging until my computer finally shut down and gave me a blue screen of death. The error code was *BAD SYSTEM CONFIG INFO*. I couldn't get it to boot up so I put windows 10 on a usb and reinstalled windows. Played for a while, then I got a *Critical Process Died* error. I have looked up a few things online and made sure to unplug my HDD and only use my SSD while booting and installing the windows again. I got CC cleaner and used the registry cleanup thing as well. I made sure all my drivers are up to date manually using device manager (no third party programs). Everything has been going good but when I went to restart my computer this time, I got a "Disk read error occured" error. I was able to just press control/alt/delete and restart it and it let me in, but my computer was acting really really slow. Is it possible that it is my SSD? All of my components are fairly new but I am just looking for some input or advice. I would really really appreciate it. I constantly check my temperatures to make sure they are good while gaming. P.S. In the process of all this crap happening, I made sure to flash my bios as well. I also made sure my power settings were good. Please feel free to comment and ask questions, i'll be here checking often. Thanks so so so much.
