    well i contacted asus last evening and they told me that more than likely it is a psu issue and that if i had it replaced and i still have the issue something could be up with my mb and that i would have to send it to them to have it rma'd.

    Making headway I see. Thatís good. If I may inject and as some have stated or hinted > It had everything to with the PSU and perhaps damaging the MoBo and/or other peripherals and not with 10 other than not investigating whether 10 was fit for your rig, of which I and most believe thatís not the case. This is not intended to pound salt in your wound whatsoever. Iím quite sure youíre frustrated and disheartened by this event as much as we donít like seeing sort of thing either.

    We all make mistakes otherwise we wouldnít be human. In fact, Iím glad you posted your problem here, for I learned and am reminded of a few things. I too heard my PSU pop and continued on instead of seeking help straightway. I was lucky not to do more damage continuing on. Simply changing out my PSU resolved the problem. Hopefully you have no more problems either.

    Any which way, good luck to you, Matt.

I've been to h--- dealing with this crap and this doesn't include the other things going on that have caused problems.
    Dual booting opens up another can of worms if things aren't right as it did with mine, anytime I switched boot drive win 10 would say there were errors and the drives needed to be scanned but this is with a board that has definite compatibility issues with win 10 old amd 790x ddr2 mobo it works but has gpu/sound support problems. I'm very close to dumping win 10 from this tower after 7 clean installs 2 video cards if I can't get a new mobo I'll have to concede and just put win 7 back on.


    Ps, I believe your mobo chipset should be compatible though if you do rma the mobo.

    Your issue with checkdisk was caused by Fast Startup in Windows 10. If you disable fast startup, you will not have that issue. It did the same with me. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...dows-10-a.html

    It's amazing the number and variety of problems Fast Startup has caused. With benefit of others' experiences posted here at TF much earlier, I decided to just cut it off at the knees as soon as possible after the 6 upgrades/installs I've sat through.

    It seems to help it be a little faster on bootup. But if you have another OS installed, it messes things up.

    how do u figure that my issues have been caused by fast startup being enabled? that wasn't really part of the equation i don't believe.

    I have 3 options in my Gigabyte board: normal, fast, and ultra startup. I installed using ultra and Windows 8 secure bootup. I read that the secure bootup was not compatible with 10, but it was working till one day my computer freaked out and wouldn't boot to BIOS (scared me to death). It did a backup BIOS (UEFI) restore and auto-changed those settings to normal and other OS-NO secure boot.

    I then changed from normal startup to fast startup (originally had ultra set), kept the secure boot off, and haven't had problems yet (fingers crossed).

    In summary, I am not sure if it was the ultra fast startup or the secure boot that caused my computer to have problems, but it was one of them. Hopefully the fast startup holds out because the normal method takes forever. I noticed that after a few times of putting my computer into sleep mode is when the problem started.

    Sorry for the off topic, but it might help someone
