Thank you both/ I actually do have an SSD as the boot drive. A Samsung 850 Evo 500GB. I wanted to replace the original HDD with a compatible one. Wasn't sure how compatible it had to be. Thank you both for the advice. I will primarily use it for storage and for games that I'm not concerned with how fast they load. I mainly have World of Warcraft installed on the SSD. Not really a fan of SSHD's. I will consider one now though. Not sure if I really need one unless I start putting a lot of games on it. I will probably buy a 3.5 inch 2tb+ unless someone can steer me with a convincing suggestion towards a SSHD of comparable size.
Was a 3.5 inch 1b HDD. I misplaced it and will be replacing it and was wondering what exact model it came with originally.
I did what you suggested. Problem still persists. So, I "refreshed" windows. Problem Solved. Thank you for all your help.
I will. Thank you for all your help. What it looks like to me, is it fully shuts down, and is awoken. There are not critical errors in the event viewer. But I'll probably try a "refresh windows".... See more...

Well. I updated to latest Windows. Problem still persists. Thank you for all your help though.

I'll try that, and No it hasn't popped up for me. Could this cause any serious issues in the long run, as I stated in the reply to Tesla1856‌, I would rather have this problem than refresh windows. Edit: Currently forcing it to update to Creator's.

It is off. Additionally it is not showing any failures today in the reliability monitor. This seems like a problem to me. But if my choices are re-installing windows and keeping this issue. I would rather keep this issue. What kind of negative impact could it have on my system in the long run? I could move all my files over to another HDD I have installed and refresh windows. Do you think that might resolve the issue? This Pc is less than a month old.
I got rid of the software. It started a few days ago. Nothing specific happened that comes to mind. Yes, it happens in safe mode. Here is the report Power Efficiency Diagnostics Report ... See more...

I use the Wifi. Is it alright to uninstall the suite?
This is what I am getting in the Reliability Monitor.
Yes, it still restarts when I hold down Shift. Re-installing chipset drivers as well. Re-installed chipset drivers. The problem still persists.
1. Yes 2. Yes 3. No 4. Yes 5. Already done And i'll have to get back to you.
Yes, start button.

1. Please excuse my ignorance. I haven't worked internally on pc's since I was in my teens. I didn't know if they had to match brand/make/model. They are matched in performance specs. I did have the ram in the wrong slot, one was in the black pre-installed, the other was in a white slot, now it's showing dual channel but it's reading the ram DRAM freq 1196/1197 NB freq 1296/1295 They are 2400mhz dimms. I'm not sure why cpu-z and speccy are saying the same freq. I have read elsewhere that you need to multiply it by two due to the programs not being able to read the speed correctly. And it's telling me that they are both 2400(1200) and the additional information is showing at 1200mhz. The crucial I have installed says dual now that they are both in matching slots but they hyundai that came pre-installed is reading as only single channel. Which, is also curious to me. Speccy tells me this: 16.0GB Dual-Channel Unknown @ 1197MHz (17-17-17-39)
So, since i bought some generic crucial ram they are not matched exactly. And the processor can't be overclocked, correct? Also I only saw the message when i popped the new ram dimm in, not since... See more...

I'm not even sure if the model I have is able to be oc'd. But the option is greyed out in the Bios, and when I installed new ram it said oc levels have been reset. It was either installing the ram or the ssd. Not sure which.
