Well, shit...finally got a STOP code at least. So...yay. Or something. :(

STOP: 0X0000007A (0X0000000000000020, 0XFFFFFFFFC000009D, 0XFFFFFA8010B0D7C8, 0X0000000000000000)

Reading through here, that second parameter (0XFFFFFFFFC000009D) suggests "defective or loose cabling, termination, or that the controller does not see the hard disk"...and your controller is definitely reading the hard disk. Also, it also mentions that sometimes a "Boot device not found" error is encountered while booting the system....You've been having that intermittently, haven't you?

In any case...adjusting/replacing cables sounds better than replacing a video card, right?

Yeah, occasionally it fails to detect the SSD for some reason on startup. If I power down and wait a bit before turning it back on, I can usually go into the BIOS and reset the boot order once it sees it again.

But, could that account for the video/display glitches and crashes?

If it's having problems reading OS/driver stuff, it might. Years ago I used to get a stop code that was related to nVidia video drivers that turned out to be a sata cable that was shorting a bit.

Well that gives me some hope and a place to start, at least.

Do the rest of the codes tell us anything else?

Most of the codes aren't generally useful, hell, most of the time only the base code is useful at all(in my experience, anyway). In thise case all instances of the x9D the rest of the portions were identical, and generally suggested replacing SATA cables, or possibly changing the port to which said drive is connected, and of course some suggested a faulty drive itself.

So they all relate to the SSD, and not the video card? Well, I hadn't experienced any of these problems before I got the SSD, so that could make sense...

Well...I switched out the SATA cable altogether, booted back up with no problems, started to feel optimistic so I tried running the "Windows Experience Index" test again...and, it still fails at the video playback test. :cry:

Well, at least it fixed the one problem. I really wish I could think of something short of a bad video card for your other issue. :/

Well great. Now I'm still getting the boot manager error and increasing video glitches.

Hmm. Well if it's not the cable...next thing I'd consider is where the cable connects. Do you have another port to try plugging the drive into, by any chance?

I tried a different port when I tried the different cable. :( But thanks for the suggestion.

It's...probably the drive itself, then. :? That being the case, though, your video card might be fine; your video issues could be due to the drive.

Well. I put my old video card in, and guess what...same problem.

Looks like I got fucked with this SSD. In a way, I'm almost glad, even though I shouldn't be since it isn't under warranty..........

Well...shit.

So I ordered new Samsung SSD 850 EVO which is much nicer than the Mushkin one, used the very impressive software it came with to transfer everything from the old drive to the new one, and...the graphical glitches persist. :cry: Also, the Windows Performance Index thing still fails during the video test.

The only thing I can think of to do now is reformat and hope the errors were due to some corrupted Windows files or something. Unless anyone else has any other suggestions...

That is most unfortunate. You did try an sfc /scannow from an admin command prompt, yes?

Did you get an error? It's supposed to run a scan of your windows system files and all that.

Well, when I enter "sfc /scannow" (I assume from "Run" through the start menu), a window pops up on the screen for literally a fraction of a second and then disappears just as quickly. Much too fast for me to be able to see what it is, or isn't, doing... :oops:
