OK. Now it is clear. If a short test after a long test + repair says that it is free from errors, the HDD is usable for a few more days. I misunderstood your post #21.

Now what is the remaining problem? You cannot boot into even safe mode? See post #17 .... what is said by essenbe ....

I had the same issue and that's what I did and it worked perfectly.
Please make it sure that you have changed the Storage controller mode to AHCI mode back.

As windows is installed in AHCI mode, this mode is to be kept to boot into windows, in safe mode, too.

It must have been a glitch because i can now get into safe mode and it was set back to AHCI mode before that. These pictures are the only errors in event log

Also this is there:

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
AsIO
AsUpIO
discache
spldr
VBoxDrv
VBoxUSBMon
vmm
Wanarpv6

Free up the startup and Services. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the system configuration window, with the "general" tab selected.
    • Click the "startup" tab. Click "Disable all" > Apply > OK.
    • Click on "services" tab. Check the "Hide all Microsoft Services"; Click "Disable all" > Apply > OK
  3. Accept then restart.
Uninstall ASUS AI Suite. Its a good idea to not keep it in the system. I have noticed some people are there who consider it as bad as a malware.

Uninstall AVG. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one, for a safety reason.

Let us know the results.

The uploaded data says it is present there.

And your last post says that PC Probe is present there. Uninstall ASUS PC Probe utility too. That is causing those boot time errors.
  • AsIO = ASUS PC Probe Utility
  • AsUpIO = ASUS Hardware Monitoring Software Component.
Enough trouble-causer.

Booted successfully into windows at 19:30. Fully loaded at 19:31. Opened chrome 19:31. Clicked your Microsoft Essentials link 19:32. Started install at 19:33. System locks up at 19:33 before the install window appears and then BSOD at 19:36

For a BSOD, we cannot say anything without seeing the dump data.

Not an ASUS user ... not sure how to uninstall PC probe. But it should be removed. If you dont find a way, opt for a clean reinstall without installing ASUS utilities.... A bloatware gathered windows installation can fail to run anytime. And AI suite is left over there, too.

When the BSOD is shown, no dump file is saved into any folder that i told it to save to. But i have a picture if that helps

I seem to remember that the first time that it froze was when i was downloading a game from steam. First time it did a chkdsk it removed the games that were currently downloading. Does it have anything to do with that?
