Hey all. So I run two hard drives in my computer. SSD and a 1 tb HDD.

I just replaced my old 128 gb SSD with a new 240 GB SSD. I bought this SSD http://www.bestbuy.com/site/pny-cs1311-240gb-internal-sata-iii-solid-state-drive/4825701.p?skuId=4825701

 

Ever since I put this SSD in, my computer freezes constantly.  I do tons of multitasking and when I have more then 4 tabs open in google chrome, some times the computer just freezes for about 1-2 minutes then resumes again. I cant even do ctrl alt delete when its frozen.

 

I have Win 7 64 bit and one FPS game installed on my SSD, Everything else is on my HDD. I NEVER had this issue before and my computer always ran fast and like a champ.

 

My old SSD is this one .. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007R67FNA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

Is my NEW SSD just slower? Is this my problem?

 

I was looking at getting one of the samsung EVO SSD .. https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-2-5-Inch-Internal-MZ-75E250B-AM/dp/B00OAJ412U/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1483641840&sr=1-1&keywords=samsung+evo

 

or 

 

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LMXBOP4/ref=psdc_1292116011_t2_B00OAJ412U which is the Samsung Pro SSD

 

Which one of the two are better between those two? 

 

 

Thanks

Try with different SATA cable first.

Ya and maybe a different S-ATA port on the mobo too, mess with the power connector etc.

Ok, I used the same sata cable and the same power plug as my old SSD, I will make sure they have a good connection. As for speed test wise, is this a good and fast SSD? 

 

Thanks

That's quite fast SSD and differences on SATA SSD's are quite small anyway.

OK so I should just keep this SSD and not get the samsung? Maybe I should try reinstalling windows? Maybe it will fix the errors I am having?

It might be helpful if you followed instructions below.

 

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
 
post-33068-0-86653600-1480692866_thumb.j

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

Speedwise, current SSD is good enough. For problems, that sounds more like hardware problem. Try those tricks that were posted on previously.
