|Ok, here's the story. |
I had the main hard drive (80 gig) starting to make a lot of noise so i figured it was about to go bad. so I bought a new 1 terabyte drive to replace it. I used Seagate's software to migrate my data from my old hard drive to the new one. Everything went smooth. shut down as instructed. unplugged the old hd and hit the power button to boot up on the new drive. No issues. Went fine for about 3 days.
Now, if I shut the computer down for a length of time then power it back up, it gets to the login screen in Windows. I click the icon to login and it just sits there for a long period then WHAMO! blue screen of death. dumps the memory then restarts itself. this routine happens about 3 times then finally everything comes online. As long as the system stays up, it works flawlessly. Even if I reboot it, its fine. The issue only occurs if its been shut down or if the power cable is unplugged. I say the power cable is unplugged because I have done that while checking connections, etc...
I've talked to Seagate. They sent me some software to scan the drive. Drive passed all checks. MS CHDSK didnt find any issues either. Cables have been checked multiple times for clean and solid connections.
I'm at a loss at this point. All my years of messing with these things and I have never run into this before. Any tips or suggestions are GREATLY appreciated.
