So, I got a new SSD drive from PNY back late October when the drive failed mid-October. Installed Windows 10 from a DVD I had created, and viola! I have an operating system back.
Been slowly loading my applications back on it and it’s working A LOT better than when I had upgraded. Makes me wonder if the drive started failing about the time I upgraded…
Kind of unusual to have an SSD drive fail from talking with hardware friends (first SSD drive). But, it was dead Jim. Thought I had the extended warranty with Microcenter, but didn’t. Luckily, PNY warranty service was good after I figured out how to file.
Ended up with Office 2016 instead of 365 since I have a subscription. So far so good.
