Everything was working fine as far as I know. I didn't do any updates or anything. Came home from work today to play some FFXIV and it wont boot up. First try it just got stuck on the flag screen and I waited like 30 min for it to start. Nothing It just kept spinning. Restarted a few more times no luck. I tried inserting my recovery disk and it booted to it. Had no luck with that. It said it did everything and when I restarted the problem stayed.
Computer Specs as best as I can remember:
Windows 8 64 Bit idk ver number
Gigabyte z77-ds3h Motherboard
i7 3770k
Nvidia GTX 660 Ti
16gb ram idr what brand
No idea on harddrive other than 2TB
60GB SSD san disk

What happens when you try to boot the machine? How far does it get?

Can you boot into BIOS? Are all your drives present?

Normally you hit DEL (ete) key to get to BIOS.

You are looking if both your HDD and SSD show up, my suspicion is that possibly your SSD (presuming boot drive) failed and will not be listed.

F9 should get you into Setup. The fact that it doesn't might suggest that you need to reset CMOS
From your Manual
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
Page 29, I see you have a reset jumper . Either that or temporarily remove your CMOS Battery.
See if you can boot into Setup, check what drives available Page 45.
The fact that you managed to boot from your Recovery disk would also suggest that your RAM is functional, but it would be a good idea to try running on one stick at a time and in different slots...
