Original config had Windows 7 HP. The HDD was confirmed bad, replaced it with a Patriot Burst SSD. BIOS is updated, and recognizes the SSD. Did a fresh install of Windows 8.1, now it will restart continuously. Some people thought it was GPU related, but no way in BIOS to disable AMD Radeon GPU. I'm not sure what to try next. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Is this a good question?
