    Crap, well, I guess I'm finally out of options then.
    I'll see about getting a professional look at it.

    Hm... It beeps once. Have you accidentally touched your ram? When windows boots up, can it see the right amount of ram (meaning the amount your computer is supposed to have?

    I had to unscrew the fan on the motherboard and take out the RAM to get to a screw so I could take out the HDD previously. So not so much accidentally as much as I purpously had to remove it to even get to the last screw for the HDD. As to the latter about windows booting up and seeing the right amount of RAM, I... Have no idea what you mean by that. Elaborate?

    How much ram does your system have? You know, when you look into the "computer properties" tab, it shows what kind of cpu you have and how much ram:

    Since buying the desktop I have never changed RAM or upgraded it or anything like that either.

    Well, i will take a guess that your system came with 8,00 GB of ram, so it recognizes the right amount. Could be a different beeping code for this particular bios, so to be on the safe side you probably might want to follow buxbaum666 advice.

    What would I tell them though?
    "Yo, so like uh... *smacks lips* It's a... Hah! Like uhm, some kind of a... Shiiiieeet! Computer problem or sum shit?"

    All I can think of is "yo, my previous ssd? Stopped working. Got new SSD, installed W8 on it, ran smoothly at first, a day later after installing some shit it takes 40 minutes to start up, what do?"

    I'm starting to think that you do not communicate with people all that often :lol:. Just tell them what you wrote here (that big paragraph).

    Sounds like a hardware issue. No matter what you've installed, that shouldn't mess with the BIOS booting. Unless it's a BIOS rootkit or something. Or you fiddled with some settings in there you shouldn't have touched.

    It's a good start.

    It's possible your computer was infected with either spyware or a virus. Don't buy the program by any means as it could be there just to steal your credit card information.
