So I recently upgraded my PC completely, the only two things which remained the same were my Nvme ssd and my old HDD. I did put in a new 1tb SSD also for newer games.
Currently however every game which i have on my HDD either loads extremely slowly about 20x slower than it used to or it just straight up blue screens upon opening a game.
Any game running off the nvme ssd or new ssd runs absolutely perfectly.
If anyone can give me suggestions on why my hdd is dying when running a game id be very appreciative.

Did you do a clean install of windows or move the nvme to the new machine and allow windows to detect the new hardware?

I just moved the nvme over with the same windows ive always had installed. Windows seems to have detected everything correctly
Could it be that some drivers left over from the previous hardware are causing problems? Personally I always install Windows from scratch if using new hardware. I am surprised that doing what you did didn't cause Windows to deactivate itself, as normally a license is meant to be used on one computer

Maybe I should do a fresh install of windows, last night it did come up prompting me to activate windows but that disappeared when i restarted the PC
