    system hangs and several "disk read error"s w/ X25M160G2GC


      Hello there,


      I've serious problems with my X25-M ssd.


      several times a day my system freezes, hangs or shows me a bluescreen. After the reset I get the "disk read error, please press ctrl+alt+del"...

      I have to wait like for 5minutes to get system booted. It's pretty annoying because I can't figure out what the problem is.


      The freezes are happening during playing online games, watching youtube or doing things with my VMs.


      And ... it's my second ssd-drive with this error. SMART looks good within the ssd-toolbox.


      Does anyone have any suggestions please?! I could still exchange the disk at my deal ... but as it is the second one, I don't know how low my dealer will play that game with me


      my system:


      model: INTEL SSDSA2M160G2GC

      firmware: 2CV102HD

      board: msi neo3-f (p35 chipset)

      os: win 7 64bit


      latest drivers, bios etc are installed


      thanks for your help

          I have the same problem. I thought it was solved by switching off SMART monitoring in the bios, but after a week the problems have returned. It seems to be a conflict on the mobo. When the drive freezes the ide light on the mobo stays on.


          It is quite typical for the drive to disappear in the BIOS after a crash. Unplugging the power supply to the ssd normally fixes this.

          I find that typically I can go days without a problem and then I get numerous crashes.

          I know other people using the same mobo with no problems, but it does seem to be related directly to the mobo in my case.

          I run MS AHCI drivers. I have tried RST drivers and it made no difference.

          Next I change the mobo to an Intel board and change the ram to see what that does.

          I don't normally get system event errors after a crash, but when I do this is what appears.
