So i got this problem that happened a couple weeks back. After nearly a year of use, it started to get the blue screen which caused my laptop to reset. Then it happens more and more frequently until last week it crashed and failed to reboot. All it showed was No Bootable Device. I created a USB recovery when i first got the laptop, i boot using USB and did all the usual automatic repairs and restore points. They all failed.
I left my laptop alone for a couple days before i have time to take it to Acer service center. Before going i turned on the laptop and everything booted up fine! I was very very confused as to why that happened.
I read all about the possible fixes and immediately went about doing it. I downloaded the Intel SSD toolbox and ran the diagnostics tools, the SSD is perfectly fine showing 100% health. I did the Windows internal scannow and it did find a few corrupt file but thankfully it was repaired without issues. I updated Intel 760p SSD firmware, Windows and the Nvidia drivers to latest one. Also made a new recovery point.
Fast forward a couple days and it crashed again. This time i had no trouble booting up with Windows but it would crash after two minutes logging in. I have no idea whats going on because i did update everything and didnt install anything new since then. Went into safe mode and the problem persists which many solutions out there says it is most likely Windows problem or i got infected by virus.
I gave in and decided to reinstall Windows with the recovery USB. Everything went great and i got the computer to boot back into Windows. First thing i did was update Windows and the Nvidia drivers. The next thing is i installed a new Antivirus program. Everything is smooth as butter, and thats five days ago.
Just now i came back home to my laptop with black screen, but lit keyboard. It was perfectly fine when i left my home a couple hours ago. Screen isnt responsive and after a min it rebooted itself and the dreaded No Bootable Device appeared again!
I am at a lost to what is wrong with the laptop. I had a brand new install of Windows and the only program i installed during that time was an antivirus program. My faith in Acer has certainly been lost. If it is indeed the SSD failure, i will not be buying Acer ever again. How can something like an SSD fail after less than a year of useage? I dont even install or save anything to the Intel SSD drive as i have a 1TB Samsung SSD in the HDD bay, its just a boot drive for Windows! My previous MSI laptop has been running fine for the past seven years and its still running.
