Hi all, this is my first post of a problem here and i'm not sure of the proper channels or etiquette so bear with me! I built my own PC about a year and a half ago, putting it toghter as best I could. The past couple of days it has been crashing and then I get a message telling me to Reebot from proper boot device. After this happens I go into Bios and I can't find C drive which is a Crucial M4 64G SSD, It will show my HDD whish is a Seagate 500G HDD which I can boot from. Once Win7 is up I checked my device manager and the SSD and HDD is there, I checked for errors on both drives using chkdsk and told it to fix all. I dont think it found any though. I got windows to check for new drivers and it all seems to be up to date. It only seems to be happening after about an hour of use. I did get an error message once that said "The instruction at 0xf633df75 referenced memory at 0x00000000. The memory could not be read. Click OK to terminate the program."

I have read posts that say, have you forcemap the temp files, but i dont know how and i never did. Could this be the problem and have i killed my SSD?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Have you tried running a disk diagnostic from Seagate to test the Seagate Drive, and have you done the same for Crucial?

No, I have not done that yet, I will do that next.

I did find a post on the Cruical site that refers to my problem, apparently after about 5000 hours its a common problem. Their solution is to update the firmware. If you are running 001, 002 or 009 you need to update to the newest version which i have, its 070H i think.

I will keep you informed on my progress, thanks for the reply Cryptodan!

After updating the firmware, my PC has run smooth as silk for the last 5 hours straight.

Problem solved!
