    Make sure computer is not overheating use SpeedFan to monitor computer temperatures.


    Please download and run SeaTools for Windows.

    Before the installation begins you will be prompted to either Decline or Accept the terms of the installation, click on I Accept.

    Once the installation begins you will see an image similar to the one below.



    1. SeaTools for Windows will search for HDDs and SSDs on your computer. Please remove any external storage devices connected via USB ports.

    2. Detected Drives will list the HDDs and SSDs found. Place a check mark in the drive box you want to run the scan on. This should be the drive that has the operating system installed on it, this is usually C: drive.

    3. You will see Basic Tests toolbar above Detected Drives, move the mouse pointer over this to open the test options. Please click on Long Generic Test

    4. This will start the scan. When the scan is complete you will see the result under Test Status , please post the results in your topic.



    5. The test will indicate either Pass or Fail. Post the results of the scan in your topic.

    6. Click on Help, then click on View Log File. If the scan failed take a screen shot of the Log File and post it in your topic.

    Hi there. I advise to call that technician and tell him/her about the problem. Their work and parts should be guaranteed.

    The computer is probably set to hibernate on the power settings control panel. Easy way to turn off Hibernation (which also disables Windows 10 fast startup) is to open a Command Prompt (Admin) or PowerShell (Admin) and run:

    powercfg -h off
