So the background... Win10 (upgraded from win7), Gigabyte Z97x - UD5H, i5 4690k, 960 gtx,16gb ram 840 250GB boot drive <--- which i think died... but how to confirm? Data drive some WD thing. System in same config for months, no issues. Lead up - had chrome and witcher 3 running - went to load a new location in witcher, CPU spun up to 100% usage, frame rate dropped to about 10, then pretty much nothing. Left it for 10 minutes then hard reset. On restart gets to desktop tries to log into steam, then just sits there unresponsive. Mouse and keyboard still working, but apps don't start incl. task manager. Can Ctrl-Alt-Del but in there nothing works except Esc (back to desktop) and Enter (lock screen). From lock screen can restart / shutdown etc.. Boot menu gives boot device error when select OS drive manually. When select Windows boot manager logs into desktop as above. Anything i can check to confirm the SSD is the issue?
