I woke up this morning and turned on my desktop, only to find that it would not boot up. I tried three times, letting it run through startup repair, to no avail.

I am wondering if this means my boot SSD (M4 Crucial) has bitten the dust?

I have also had issues with my Logitech G510 keyboard lately. Instead of booting up with everything else, it boots into a green glow, and nothing else. I have to use the on-screen keyboard to type in my password, then let it sit for a minute on my desktop before it installs (but still tells me it didn't install properly).

I further have had issues recently with my 2nd monitor. Several times when gaming, the monitor just shuts itself off. I have to rustle the cables a bit before it will turn back on.

Is any of this helpful? Are all three big issues, or any of them easy fixes?

Re-install windows ( when it gives you the option choose to keep the old one in case you want stuff from that)

If it works; then go into the new windows and backup the stuff from old windows onto another drive.

Then format the SSD.

That should have a good chance of fixing it.

might be your graphics card went out as well. Usually when you cant get past the windows logo this can be the case.

Take out the card and try onboard if you have it. If you dont have onboard try another card

If you are overclocking your CPU, take it back down. In fact, load the optimized settings for everything in BIOS. That is the first step of troubleshooting, really.

Also, if you have USB 2.0 ports, make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into those, rather than USB 3.0 ports while you are booting from disc, etc.
