my laptop freezes a lot ,and barely can use it .
If any one know how to fix it , please help me out .
thank a lot
Did you try my post from the previous comment page:
1. Device Manager, expand out IDE ATA/ATAPI settings.
2. Identify the "nForce Serial ATA Controller" that is relevant to your SSD (I'm running on a Gen 1 32gb Intel - X25-e), flip through the Port tabs until you find your drive on each controller.
3. Uncheck "Enable command queuing"
4. Be prepared to reboot, mine as well do it now since your computer could randomly freeze if you're on this thread.
Maybe supply a bit more information about your system, what is the motherboard chipset?

My laptop is Sony Vaio VPCEB1S1E/BJ
Chipset is Intel® HM55 Express
Intel(R) 5 Series 4 Port SATA AHCI controller does not have these tab/settings "Port tabs" "Enable command queuing".
Hopefully the problem is not related to this, because I can not change this setting!
Not sure if it is the same issue or if this applies... but if you have this driver you could try making a safe config and then uninstalling the driver, see if the situation improves, or vice versa, if you don't have this driver (or latest version) try installing it.
It does mention it enables "Native Command Queuing" so its worth a shot...
I searched and found a Sony one as well, so may want to get that...
You could also try the Intel version of the driver, not sure if it will work for your hardware but it was released last month, so worth a shot:
Pie in the Sky reaching, have a backup, but if it works, its well worth the effort.
Thanks for the link Alec. Intel's driver is now installed (ver 10.0.0.1046) and it works
I can see with "Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technologyenabled"-program that "Native Command Queuing" is enabled, but value cannot be changed.
Let's see if there were any differences between the new driver in relation to freeze.
Seeing that this post is already 2 years old and people are still having problems with the ssd drives I wanted to add my version of the problem.
I recently bought an intel 160 Gig 320 Series 25NM sata II 2.5 ssd drive.
They told me this was the next step in making my pc even faster but instead, I got more migraines then ever before.
Here is what happened to me:
My computer is about 2 years old, I have a p5q-e motherboard and nvida Geforce gtx 285 video card, I also had a raptor hard drive that worked perfectly, very stable system, no crashes, no problems at all.
After I installed a fresh copy of Win7 on the ssd drive I began to have weird problems and crashes. Most of the time I had issues with flash player (with wich I have never had problems before) that caused all my browsers to crash. My windows explorer would crash from time to time and I have had BSOD's (blue screens of death) and random crashes that made my system reboot without a reason.
I reinstalled several times on AHCI mode and IDE but to no avail.
Crashes are still happening, luckelly not too often...
I've been searching for more than a week to resolve this problem and this is the the first forum I found with people having kind off the same problem.
I am going to try the secure erase and will see if that helpes.
If anyone else can offer other solutions, it would be much appreciated.
I will post my findings after the secure erase.
Kind regards from Belgium.
I have had actually got my SSD working fine now as I put it in a different computer with an Intel chipset.
Your problem is not actually the SSD, it your motherboard. The Nvidia chipset on your motherboard is really the issue as it does not correctly support "Tagged Command Queueing" or something. What I can say is that if you buy a new motherboard which does not have the nforce chipset your SSD will work fine. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I was in the same boat.
It seems we should all be moaning at Nvidia about the nForce being crap rather than Intel.
Some motherboards have an option to turn off tagged command queueing but mine didnt, if yours does then this might help.
Thnx for the quick reply.
In the meanwhile, I have (again) reinstalled windows 7 and for the last day and a half everything is running smoothly without crashes or hangs (fingers crossed that it stays this way...)
Here is what I did exactely to get it to work:
First off all, I got to say that I think it was a defective memory slot wich caused my problems, I have installed all but the one that seems to be faulty so it could have just been that.
Having said this, I will still explain how I installed, maybe it can help other people, you never know.
First of all, I used the intel toolbox and performed a secure erase on the ssd.
Then I partitioned it with an xp setup cd because I read somewhere that the 100Mb system partition that is created by windows 7 could cause problems. I just read this, I don't know if it's true.
I removed the ram from the slots that I thought were faulty and also removed my creative soundblaster audio pci card because I have had problems with that one in the past too. Damn creative, has given me nothing but headaches but that's a complete other story
Then I reinstalled windows 7 with IDE settings in the bios, I know, ahci or raid are apparently faster but since I have had problems with ahci too, I didn't want to risk it.
After the install, all worked fine, I installed nvidia drivers with windows update and started installing progs and tools.
I hope this can be of some help too someone. I know it drove me crazy having to work on a system that crashed all the time.
