I recently bought a Samsung SSD 830 Series (128gb) and I installed windows on it.
After about two days, I noticed my download speeds in my file transfer programs went to a creeping halt (4.1kb/s from 1.6mbps).
I figured it had been a glitch so I closed out the program and went to reopen it to find I could not do so.
My IRC client had still been responsive with no issues, my media player (winamp) had no issues (music is on another hard drive), but trying to open any new programs would result in fail.
Even trying to shutdown the computer safely resulted in no response.
It seems to happen when I am streaming music from Pandora (both in Chrome and FireFox) but I have not tried any other streaming services.
Anytime this happens, I have to force a hard reset in which everything is fine, until the issue occurs again.
Motherboard: MSI x58 SLI LE
Ram: 18GB DDR3
CPU: Intel i7 2.87 GHz
Hard Drives: Samsung 830 Series, 3x Seagate HDDs (1TB+)
Video Cards: nVidida GTX 450, nVidia 9500 GT
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Could this be a sleep issue on the SDD with it not wanting to wake back up? Anyway to stop this?
