Hello everyone,

 

It's been four straight days and I haven't managed to cure my computer from this curse. Every 40-60 minutes, my computer will freeze and continue until I hard boot my computer. I've done everything I could.

 

My attempts to fix the problem are:

  • Clean registry
  • Scan for malware/viruses with MalwareBytes, HitmanPro, Norton Antivirus and SUPERAntiSpyware but everything came up clean
  • Checked my RAM with memtest86+
  • Did chkdsk /r and it came out clean
  • Did sfc /scannow and found corrupt files BUT I found out that it was just simply the Sample audio, video and pictures deleted from winsxs @ C:/Windows/winsxs

 

I even booted into safe mode and it crashed on me, which made me wonder if it's my SSD so I installed Windows 7 on another hard drive I had hooked up which I use for recording videos and Windows 7 worked fine for hours.

 

I've gotten BSoDs throughout these four days at least 12 times but it always fails to create a dump which means I cannot diagnose the problem with BlueScreenViewer.

 

During the crashes, I've had Resource Monitor running in the background and how I can tell when my computer is about to freeze is when all of my programs such as Firefox or Google Chrome stop responding and I see the CPU usage, Disk, Network and Memory all drop to nothing but 0%.

 

I'm wondering if it's my SSD or just simply one of the Windows Updates or Nvidia Drivers that are causing the problem.

 

I've made a decision that I won't be re-installing Windows 7 because it's a pain to do so but if it's 100% impossible to fix the issue, I guess I'll have no choice but to do so, but that's the very last thing I want to do to get this fixed.

 

Please help me out, I haven't gotten much sleep since my computer keeps crashing.

That's exactly the same SSD as I have and you are experiencing the same problems as I was. As it was explained to me in my thread, Crucial SSD's start to cause crashes after 5000 hours of use due to a bug and I managed to fix the issue with a firmware update. Anshad Edavana kindly posted the instructions to do this and are in the thread I posted above and should help you out as well.

I just went ahead and updated it. I will be posting back results if the crashing continues.

The issue appears to be fixed after 3 hours of use without any freezing or BSoDs.
