The only version I can find to download is 2.1.1.561 or 2.2.0.651 Beta.  I went ahead and ordered a new drive for the OS.. gonna try that.

Ah!  Thanks!

I'll install that latest and see if it fixes anything.  I really still think its the drive and not the software.  If I set the computer to just always be on, I never have any issues.  And rebooting from a complete power off always seems to make it work.  It's only if I try to resume from standby, or if the power was cut (we have a LOT of momentary split second power outages around here (that's why I still need to buy a UPS)) that I have this problem of the drive not working.

Very odd.  

Probably a driver related issue, then.

 

As for the power, yeah, definitely get a UPS, it will help with those "brown outs" that you're experience (which can, over time wreck your hardware).

I was all set and ready to buy a UPS when I posted about it a month or so ago but never did.  I've been in a massive depression with my home life as of late and have dedicated a lot of time to working and saving money for a car so I can move out.  Then all of a sudden my Essentials Dashboard has been throwing up glaring CRITICAL warnings about services (like Active Directory Certification Service) not running or being able to start.  Databases are corrupted, and the computer just can't boot off the OS drive in a warm reset but rather only from a cold start.  It's almost like my build is against me.  Bad backplanes, a SAS Expander dies (probably related to the poor power conditions), various drive failures.  LOL maybe I should just give up.  But naw, this is too much fun, albeit expensive.

ROFLMAO!

 

I laugh, because I don't want to cry. :P

 

Seriously, totally been there. Not the same issues.... but ...still.   

 

 

Unforutnately, I suspect that a LOT of your issues would be solved with a UPS. But that's a good chunk of money (new or used), 

 

 

 

And I totally understand about the depression stuff.

 

Though... I've become a recluse/hermit/whatever.

I totally get that.  Depression is my angst.  It's all good though.  Projects like this keep me on the level.  I got the drive cloned to a new SSD, so far no issues.  A UPS will be next on my list before another drive.  Maybe I can find a good deal on Amazon with free Prime shipping.

I'd recommend something like the CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD.  I have one of these, and it's been fantastic. And it's Active PFC (True Sinewave).  matters if your power supply is as well. 

 

Otherwise, UPS's are expensive across the board. Even on EBay and the like.
