Windows 10: BSOD for the first time out of nowhere.

    BSOD for the first time out of nowhere.

    I read the sticky on what to do before posting but unfortunately I can't get to my desktop to get the info. I figured I would just list my specs.

    Gigabyte Z77-DS3H
    Intel core i3 2120
    Nvidia GTX 560 Ti
    8 GB RAM
    Crucial 128 GB SSD (drive with the OS files)
    Seagate 2 TB Hard Drive
    Windows 10 64-bit

    I was using my computer like normal, I walked out of the room for about an hour and when I walk back in I see the automatic repair and diagnosing screens loop on my computer. I had not installed any new drivers for any of my devices recently either, the only thing I could think of is a windows automatic update. I tried most of the alternative startup methods from the options. Tried system restore, it kept giving me errors. Tried to refresh it and it gave me an error. I am getting the error message of Automatic Repair could not repair your computer and it displays the log file "E:\WINDOWS\System32\LogFiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt"
    I found this odd because my E: drive does not contain my OS files, my C: drive does. I go to the command prompt from the recovery console and open up the log file srttrail.txt it shows one error (0x490) a recent driver installation or upgrade may be preventing the system from starting. I open up bcdedit and it shows that none of my defaults are to my C: drive like they should be. Again odd, I change them to the C: drive, close out of the command prompt and restart again. Still doesn't work. I check in my bios, my C: drive is no longer listed in the boot priority options but is listed in the section where I can manually select a drive to boot from. Again, very odd. What should I do?

    Hello and welcome to TenForums :)

    This sounds like you need to post in the general area for help since you appear to be unable to boot into the operating system. It could be that a windows update has somehow corrupted the boot process which no longer recognises the SSD. Did you ever make a system backup that you can use to restore the two drives?

    Unfortunately no, all I had was a restore point from a few days ago.
