Built a studio PC with a PC builder friend about 6 years ago, all worked extremely well until tonight. Started getting some strange problems with my USB audio interface (Scarlett 18i8). Using my DAW and Lightroom, PC froze (except for mouse) and was unresponsive. Tried restarting, got stuck at the splash screen.

Tried, to no avail:

System Restore to restore point made the morning of

Starting in Safe Mode (won't go into safe mode, just gets stuck)

Unplugging each RAM unit and restarting

Unplugging all USB devices and restarting

Any suggestions? Did my SSD go belly up?

No BIOS or major driver updates as far as I know. I've disabled all auto updating aside from security updates and don't do much of anything but Spotify/YouTube, some document editing and DAW stuff. No random downloads of sketchy programs or the like.

I have everything backed up to BackBlaze so I can re-download what data is on there but I'm not sure if it's a proper clone of the drive.

Specs:
Win 8.1

i7 4790k
ASRock MOBO
32GB RAM (HyperX Fury)
Samsung 850 EVO 250GB C:\\ Drive
1x M2 Samsung SSD 1TB
2x Seagate Barracuda storage drives
