I am simply trying to replace an HDD with a Crucial Mx300 525gb SSD in a HP Pavilion Dv4 laptop. The entire HDD had <150GB on it, so size should not be an issue.
I cloned everything over to the SSD using EaseUs cloing software. The cloning took about 20 minutes, I pull the old HDD out and replace with the SSD.
Windows 10 x64 OS. It boots up fast and everything seems normal. However, somewhere between 5-20 minutes after booting the computer, windows hangs and becomes mostly non-responsive. The computer isn't frozen, I can move the mouse and click on this, but most of the clicks don't do anything. The computer doesn't crash, but there isn't anything I can do but manually restart using the power button.
I have wiped the SSD and re-cloned it 3 times now and gotten the same issues with the computer hanging. Since it is not crashing, I'm not sure where to begin? Any suggestions for things that I need to check are greatly appreciated.
