2 months ago I bought a new system (specs link
About a month ago I'd get "a disc read error occured. press ctrl alt delete to restart" (right after the bios check and before windows loads) maybe once or twice a week and one or two reboots would make it go away.
Now it'll happen every other time I turn the computer on and it'll take sometimes 10 restarts before it'll actually boot.
Sometimes I get that error message, sometimes it'll hang on the "Starting Windows" screen. Once it's actually started up though, everything runs perfectly - I can even restart the computer as many times as I please with no problems. It only seems to crop up again the next day when I turn it on for the first time.
There's clearly a problem there somewhere, but the way it's presenting itself has me confused as hell; All drivers and windows are up to date, no malware or viruses that I can find, no overclocking and windows repair features find nothing wrong.
I thought maybe it could be the SSD playing up? But I've only had one for 2 months now so I'm not very familiar with them and I don't really know.
