    most of the shutdowns were power outages when i was not home i finally set the bios to not auto start, so i know what caused them , the power kept going on and off why i was at work and nobody was here, i came home to a lot bad food that day too. the ram has been in there for quit a long time i'm guessing almost a year now. i salvaged it out of my old system have not had any issues with it. is there a flag on having different brands?

    In general when purchasing RAM:
    a) purchase in pairs with matching SKU
    b) make sure RAM modules are on the Qualified Vendor List (QVL)
    c) if a single RAM module is being considered make sure the capability of the motherboard does not reduce performance by switching from dual to single channel performance

    Steps 1 - 6 are routine steps to make sure there are no new problems with the operating system, component store, or drive file system.

    Earlier in the thread there were problems fixed on C:
    Please check all drives using the syntax: chkdsk /r /v W: changing the letter W to the applicable drive letter.

    other drives are just storage drives and have nothing on them but files not to worried about them at all , there old and test ok with seatool.

    bios is most up to date it has listed Support For Z77A-G45 | Motherboard - The world leader in motherboard design | MSI USA

    - - - Updated - - -

    also thought it might be one of them so i unhooked both and had same issue to rule the other drives out but they have no boot sectors on them at all.

    - - - Updated - - -

    could not get the free HD tune it was supposed to be a trial but it would not let me run without buying for some reason so here is info from crystal disk info and the other images you wanted. drive status is OK also running seatools i had that allready.

    Now my pc has taken to saying it can't find something at boot-crystal.pngNow my pc has taken to saying it can't find something at boot-system-recovery.pngNow my pc has taken to saying it can't find something at boot-virtual-memory.png

    Please click edit post then post again the text.
    It should maintain the layout after clicking edit followed by the original text.

    See if this link works for the free HD Tune:
    Download HD Tune 2.55

    MSI displayed 2.C as the newest version.
    Sometimes their method is for version is unusual.
    Did 2.C match 2.12 ?
