    Intel SSD problems


      I have an Intel 40GB SSD (DSA2CT040G3) as my OS drive. Here are my system specs -  Intel Q2.4GHZ CPU, Asus P5N32E-SLI motherboard, Asus PCI soundcard, ATI Radeon4850 GPU, 4GB DDR2 ram, Intel 40GB SSD, Windows 7 64bit OS, 650WCorsairPSU, 2 x 1TB 7200rpm Sata drives, Asus DRW2014 DVDRW, 5 in 1 Card Reader, 24" LG LCD Monitor, Logitech MX revolution mouse, LogitechG15USB K/B.


      My OS has roughly 4GB of free space to play with. Until recently I kept getting BSOD's AND unexplained slowdowns/freezes where my GUI would lock-up.

      I eliminated the BSOD's after discovering you should disable all defrags on an SSD.

      I still have the lockups/slowdowns though.


      I downloaded and installed the latest Intel SSD toolbox. It doesn't work. I've reinstalled it a couple of time but all the options remain greyed-out (see screenshot) [i][b]Attached file:[/b] [url=http://www.imagef1.net.nz/upload/SSD.jpg]SSD.jpg[/url] (67 KB)[/i]


      How can I fix this?
