First things first - BACKUP your stuff!!! Don't second guess this message unless you're willing to lose your stuff.
It may be likely that the SSD is dying, but it's going to take a while to diagnose it. Meanwhile the chances of losing your data are great!
How many hard drives does this computer have?
Are they all SSD's?
System restore restores the system state, but doesn't reset the system (or did you do a reinstall of Vista?)
CHKDSK checks the file system on the hard drive
The hard drive controller controls both the hard drive/RAID and the DVD drive
The RAID controls how the hard drives work together to store data
And the hard drives store the data
So there's lot's of stuff to check here.
Next, there's not much in the way of tests available for SSD's
I suggest this test: http://crystalmark.info/software/index-e.html
But it's not a full diagnostics - but it will give you the SMART attributes of the drive
SMART is a predictive technology - in other words, the SMART attributes can say that the drive may be failing, but they can't say that it has failed (or that it definitely will fail).
And, if you're getting BSOD's, Please run this report collecting tool so that we can provide a complete analysis: http://omgdebugging.com/bsod-inspector/
When done a Notepad document will open with the name of the file and it's location. (By default it'll be a .zip file located on your Desktop)
Simply upload the .zip file with your next post and we'll move on from there.
