Dear fellow computer victims or masters,
I recently installed a Samsung EVO SSD harddisk into my ASUS K73SV computer, together with an extra 4 gig of internal memory. I then did a clean install of Windows 7, updated drivers etc. Since this laptop has two HHD slots I left my old drive in it but changed the slots for them. However I didn't reformat the old drive or anything; I just left it the way it was. Now my boot drive is the SSD (of course), set to C:
The problem is that my computer now hangs in a completely random way. No matter whether I surf the web, work in MS Office, play, or don't do anything with the computer at all, suddenly the whole screen starts to blink very rapidly, showing white vertical stripes (i.e. the typical sign that your motherboard/graphic board would have melted/overheated, or something like that). This all started when I installed the SSD and extra 4 gig memory.
Furthermore, every 5th time or so that I turn the computer on, it seems to do everything in slow motion/ultra rapide. The green HDD lamp is "flickering", sound is playing 10 times slower than normal, and ordinary webpages are following me very badly when I scroll down.
What could be the problem? I have heard a lot about people having problems with blue screens after installing an SSD drive, but this is clearly not the case here. Could it be the extra 4 gigs of memory? I did buy a different brand of memory (i.e. had Kingston but bought something else) but the clock frequency was the same and the salesman in the store assured me that there would be no problems. I even showed him the old memory module so that he could pick the correct (closest) one from the inventory list in his computer.
Diagnosis and treatment, please!
