    Hello,
    Over the past few weeks, my Windows files have always been getting corrupted. The hard thing is that it is an error every different time saying that some file is missing. For example, today, I did a system restore. I have done this many times and before I got to the setup screen for windows, I got a blue screen that prompted me to restart my PC and it gave me the same error after I restarted. By the way, I have Windows 8.1. Files also get corrupted on Windows 10 for me. I can't find out what the error is but I suspect it is my SSD because files get corrupted before I even install anything. One example of an error was a memory read error. The weird thing is that I had my old SSD replaced by a warranty 2 months ago and 2 weeks after I received the new one and started it, everything started to get corrupted. I have probably restored my PC 30 times this week...

    Unfortunately, now I can't even boot into the windows setup where it gives me the error 0x000021a.

    No success. When I type the bcedit command, it says the boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device could not be found. I can't do any other options since I can't boot into windows and haven't got to the setup screen for windows either. I strongly think my SSD is dying.

    The cmd solution failed and I couldn't do any of the other ones because I still haven't been able to set up windows and can't boot into windows. I Could almost guarantee now that it'd my 2 month old faulty Ocz SSD.

    You can run memtest from a bootable Usb stick or CD/DVD, it's self contained and will run even if Windows can't !
