Info

I have a Thinkpad with a SAMSUNG MZ7TD128HAFV-000L1 SSD, running Windows 7 SP1.

 

Symptoms

For the past week or so I've experienced frequent hangs at log on and log off. The screen is blank and I have the loading cursor spinning but nothing else. Ctrl+Shift+Esc does nothing. Only thing possible is to force shutdown with long pressing the power button, and start up again. Then I am presented with that Recovered from unexpected shutdown screen (boot into safe mode or normal etc.).

 

I've run chkdsk a few times and it turned up nothing... for a few days the problem even seemed cured. But after the latest incident a chkdsk started by itself at boot. This time it found something to do, recover some orphaned files:

Thinking this is a sign of imminent SSD failure, I checked SMART readings with CrystalDiskInfo. It still shows Good 100%

 

Is it a sign of SSD failure? Is there a way to test this to confirm?

 

Repaving is NOT desired, I've tweaked the OS in too many ways, do not suggest blowing away the system to put on a fresh OS and "just reinstall programs" like it's all in a lazy afternoon's work. I've ordered a SATA-USB3 adapter to help mirror the drive onto a spare SSD. Didn't want to mirror everything (caches, crud, maybe this bug itself?) but selective backup of system configuration and user state is not within my grasp now. I hoped to make a boxstarter script but sooo many tweaks. Any advice here is appreciated.

 

Thank you!

No, not at all:

  1. Bluetooth Software
  2. ClipX [clipboard manager]
  3. Comodo Internet Security
  4. Comodo Internet Security Essentials
  5. Dropbox Update
  6. f.lux
  7. HD Audio Background process
  8. Intel USB 3.0 Monitor
  9. Realtek HD Audio Manager
  10. Ricoh Camera Driver
  11. Synaptics Pointing Device Driver
  12. Thinkpad Power Manager

 Maybe it's the antivirus?

Booted up today, I got past the logon screen but then the whole system became unresponsive, hanging with the system tray WiFi icon forever loading. After restart I was able to switch the Network Location Awareness service to Disabled. So I think it's about the WiFi maybe?
