Over the past week this is the series of events, sorry for the caveman delivery.

>Go to get on computer from sleep mode and get blue screen saying there is an error (the options given did nothing)

>Go to restart and now all I can get is the blue screen

>Having serious issues getting Windows boot disc to work. Try USB, same thing, sits at Windows loading screen for 15 minutes then error, restart, same thing.

>Disable secure boot and change to legacy boot, now it will boot to the disc but it takes literally over an hour of sitting on the windows loading screen before it loads.

>Once it loads each screen prompt takes an additional 10 minutes, when it checks for your partitioned drives it takes 30 minutes.

>Having no luck with the SSD, just getting the error cannot create partitioned drive. Even in DOS I cannot create a partition on the SSD.

>I partition the regular HD and install windows which takes roughly 4 hours.

>Windows loads there are no drivers installed, no Ethernet controller driver installed. Use the motherboard disc to install motherboard drivers, can only install half, not including Ethernet; so no internet.

>Go to restart and now it is at the windows loading screen like it is loading the boot disc, it sits on this screen for 15 minutes then gives me a blue screen then it restarts and I get into windows.

>From my laptop I download all of the motherboard drivers to a thumb drive and put them on my desktop. I still cannot get the Ethernet drivers installed, it keeps giving me errors.

>Restart, load screen, blue screen

>Restart, load screen, in Windows but cannot install motherboard drivers. Getting various errors.
>So Windows is installed but when the computer boots it sits on the windows load screen like its loading the boot disc until it gives me he blue screen and restarts.

Have you checked your disks as well. If not I would start there as shown below.

When you reinstalled Windows, did you perform a fresh clean install or repair install? If not and your drives test good then that would be my recommendation as it sounds like you have multiple issues. Other cause could be malware, have you ran any malware scans?

Another option to verify your hardware is good is to create a live Linux USB/disc such as Mint or Ubuntu and see how your computer works.

Seagate Seatools for DOS (free):

Create Bootable Seatools USB with Rufus

1. Device - Verify the correct USB Drive is selected - Very Important
2. Boot selection - Click on Select button to browse to the correct .iso file
3. Partition Scheme - Select MBR partition
4. Target System - Bios or UEFI
5. Volume Label - Change if needed
6. File System - FAT32 (default)
7. Cluster Size - 16KB (default)
8. Click the Start button - Warning flash drive will be formatted and all data will be destroyed.

If the computer is UEFI you may need to enable CSM or Legacy mode and Disable SecureBoot if available to boot from the USB correctly.
