I found a spare cable and i switched it out with the old ssd cable and i also plugged it into a differerent sata port than it was originally plugged into. so if a problem with the motherboard connection would i have to replace the whole motherboard?

and is it worth nothing that although this is not a bsod, after i switched the cable and port that the ssd was plugged into i booted my pc and after the bios screen it said i should reboot and select a boot drive or press a key to boot from a disk. i fixed this by again switching the port that the ssd plugged into

We'll have to see how it goes. It's a possibility but we don't know if that's the problem yet.

That's normal due to the disk being plugged into a different SATA port, you'd have been able to select the SSD in the BIOS.

Another I/O error. I'm going to ask for some extra eyes on this to see if I'm missing anything.

eags72, Would you check and make sure your SSD has the latest Firmware installed? Crucial SSD Firmware Updates

Would you please go into BIOS and check what the Sata Controller is set to (IDE,AHCI or Raid) Then set optimized defaults. After that go back to the Sata controller and make sure to set it to whatever it is set to right now or it won't boot, Make sure your Ram is set to manufacturers specs for the timings, frequency and Dram Voltage, set your boot order save and exit.

Also, do you happen to have a spare hard drive we could try if this does not work. If you have a local computer shop, I would suggest a new sata cable just to be sure. They are pretty cheap. if you have or can borrow a known good working hard drive from someone, I would like to try a minimal test clean install and see if you have the same problems. If you can get those items, please let me know and I would like to guide you through the process. What I want to do will not bother your current install at all.

Please go into Device Manager and expand disk Drives and IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers and post a screenshot for me. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

eags72, I just noticed a lot of errors you are having with the NVidia streaming, which is part of the GeForce Experience. Would you follow this tutorial and install nothing except the Graphics driver and PhysX.

yeah, I can do all this I'll get back to you after it's all done. But when my computer restarts it tells me to select a boot device, but when I go to the BIOS settings and switch the boot device to my ssd and reboot my pc, it freezes before I can even get to the BIOS screen. My only temporary solution to this problem so far is to switch the port that the ssd is plugged into but every time I restart my computer I need to do this and it would help to find a solution to this. Thanks for all the help guys!

ok so the boot drive problem I had a few minutes ago was somehow solved, I think. So my controller is set to AHCI but I don't know how to set it to optimized defaults. I also don't know how to find the RAM settings. I don't have a spare hard drive but I did have a spare sata cable that i switched in for the ssd connection a bit ago. I could get another one if needed. I did what it said for the NVIDIA setup and the screenshot is attached.
