    My problem seems to be hardware related at this point, and I am lost as to how to continue. I can usually fix these things by process of elimination, but I am stumped. Memory? Video card?
    My system is ASUS Sabertooth MB, with AMD FX-9590 cpu, 32 gigs Gskil DDR3 ram, 1000 watt PSU (platinum certified), GTX770 EVGA graphics, and a few drives. The cpu is liquid cooled, and never gets above 45C, so that isn't over heating. Everything is new except the video card and the drives, and have worked flawlessly for the past few months, until now.
    What method are you using to download.

    You can try downloading the proper version ISO from here:
    Tech Bench

    Then use Rufus to make the USB:

    I think I am having serious hardware issues...the copy of 8.1 that I installed to a spare drive is freezing...it gets as far as the tile screen....then freezes.
    I have an ISO copy burned to DVD, but it is zipped, no?
    I managed to get the original disc (ssd) to safe mode with command, did a chkdsk /f/r, completes, but then also freezes up when it starts to run.
    If I use the reset button, it freezes(every drive) immediately.
    Some hardware issue, I believe, is causing everything to freeze, but what?

    If you have the ability, I would take the computer completely apart, all the way down to bare motherboard with an empty CPU socket. Use compressed air to blow all the dust off and out if every socket, then put it back together and try again.

    She isn't old enough for dust to really be an issue...less than 4 months. Every time I boot it up, I have to reset or restore win 8.1 on the spare drive. I have the SSD disconnected, as well as my game drive and documents/photos drives.
    What can cause an OS to get so screwed up in so little time......the drive was formatted before the install....

    I managed to get a USB drive set up, and now, the recovery key I got when I first loaded in 10, does not work! so I am stuck up the creek once again. If I had a product key, I could be up and running on 10---for as long as it will take to crash and burn again....
    Every time I try to download google, it freezes........
    I have removed and flipped mem sticks around, no change, I have tried an old video card, no change. I just do not know what else to do...

    If a Win 10 upgrade was ever installed and activated on the machine, you don't need a key to do a clean install of 10 again on the same hardware. ("Hardware" mostly means "motherboard".) Just press the little "skip" button when the installer asks for a key. The fresh 10 install should activate online.

    (You can actually do that on a PC that has never had 10 on it, but it wouldn't activate.)

    Hi

    A few months ago, while still using XP I was having very similar problems to yourself and I was using a mega High End Video Card which cost about 150.

    I'd had this Card for quite sometime and everything worked fine, then one day it all fell apart and I was getting Crashing and Looping and Rebooting, as well as something called Stringing.

    The one thing that I did not do, was ever suspect that the Video Card was at fault but I was lucky enough to speak with a Guy in a Computer Store, who managed to nail the problem just by what I told him.

    So I bought another Video Card but this time an 'el cheapo' Solid State one without a Fan 25.

    According to what he told me, you only need a High End one for Gaming (which I don't do) and so as soon as I plugged it in, all the problems I was having disappeared.

    So maybe its time to treat yourself to a New One?

    I tried changing cards...no good .. and I do game a lot so I need hi end. As far it loading back into the pc without a key...... I get a windows compatibility report that says the pc started with installation media, remove it and start windows normally, then reinsert installation media.....if I could do that, I wouldn't be going through all this! I tried this on both the ssd drive that had 10 on it, and the spare HDD, both are on the same MB, so that trick isn't going to do it....and the recovery key given to me by MS is worth squat.

    I am thinking that my CPU may have gone south...it seems to freeze up anytime I attempt to download a file, like its working too hard, gets the fans flying and, if I leave it alone long enough, it shuts the PC down.

    I have moved mem sticks around, tried different ones in different spots, and I tried a different video card, all with little difference

    Two Hard Drives on the Same Motherboard, could be the Cause of your problem.

    I used to have Four Hard Drives on the Same Motherboard, so I could choose which one I wanted to Boot from, which is when I got problems, which may or may not be related to yours.

    So now I've changed my Set Up to removable Caddies, so that only One hard drive is active at any one time.

    Maybe you could try Installing Windows 10 with only One HD connected, you seem to have tried everything else, you never know it might work.
