    SSD 320 Issues

    vwillyagent

      Last month my SSD 80G2GC kept hanging windows 7 x64.  100% que length and nothing in the logs etc. Computer would run fine for a few minutes then 100% hard drive cue stalled the machine to inoperable. Rebuilt the machine on several occassions and same issue.  I assumed that after 1.5 years of flawless performance that the drive finally went to hell.  So, I bought an SSD 320 120gb.  A few weeks go by and the same issue creeps up again.  The machine literally grinds to a halt etc..  Went through the ringer of trying to figure out what the potential issue could be.  Tried every step known to man.

       

      My Specs,

       

      EVGA 780i SLI Mobo

      Q9450 Intel

      8 gigs of Ram

      EVGA 480 GTX

      SSD 320

      SSD 80G2

       

      I was about to hit the NEXT button on Newegg for my new rig when I saw this on Microsoft Update:

       

      An update that improves the compatibility of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 with Advanced Format Disks is available

      This is very strange.  I think something is afoot...
