    Win 10 continuously corrupted


    I have had a two month+ problem with Windows 10 Pro X64 repeatedly getting corrupted and failing to load. I have previously posted about this problem and been given numerous suggestion (for which I'm very thankful). However, the only thing that has temporarily solved my problem is a fresh install of Windows. Nonetheless, it will fail again within a week or so.

    I have tried MANY MANY alternatives to find and resolve the problem but I won't bore you with all those details. Specifically, Win has failed yet again and I am trying another alternative and I'm a little over my head and would appreciate advice.

    I'm trying to run SFC from a command line boot. First, I ran "diskpart list volume" to find the correct drives. The result showed my drives but the E: drive contained Windows but it wasn't labeled Windows as the example in the tutorial on this form shows. (Picture attached)


    I did a dir of the E: drive and it shows the folders that I'd expect.

    I did a dir of the C: drive (System volume) and it shows one file of 0 bites. I would have expected to see windows boot files but am not sure about this. (picture attached)

    I ran SFC and it said that there were corrupt files but it couldn't fix them. I looked at the log file that it created. It is VERY lengthy and frankly, I don't understand what it was telling me. (photo attached)

    After all of my problem solving, I suspect that I have a hardware problem (SSD or Power supply). However, I have the OCX utility loaded and it tells me that all is well. I'm leaning toward replacing the SSD but I'd really like to eliminate other potential possibilities before I spend the money on that speculation.

    Does the above provide any hints as to my problem?

    Have you run Memtest on the system? I'd let it loop a few times or even overnight. Bad memory can cause corrupt files as well.

    Thank-you for the suggestion - and yes, I've run memtest for about 20 hours and no problems were reported.

    I reckon there may be a problem with your SSD. Have you tried swapping it out with another drive?

    I don't have another SSD to swap.

    Have you any other drive available other than the SSD to swap it with?

    I think I had the same exact error before, and my SSD was failing. This is good advice.

    My secondary drive is a standard HDD that originally came with the computer. I could use that as a boot drive but, as I recall, I went through technical hell installing the SDD and demoting the HDD to a secondary drive (about 2 years ago). I don't want to go through that again.

    As they say, "If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck......".

    All indications are that I have an SSD problem but I wanted to prove it before I bought a new one and I haven't been able to do that. I've been through the "failure/reinstall Windows" loop so many times that I think that I'll just bite the bullet and buy a new SSD and see what happens.

    I'll post my results.

    Hi sounds similar to my issue about 2 months back , look in device manager for me and tell me the driver Version running on the AHCI/RAID Controller . Do you have a ICH9 or ICH10/10R Chipset onboard?
