I just got a new Intel 510 SSD 250gb and am experiencing the exact same issues. Random pc freezes, screen turning white and then am unable to restart Windows after hitting reset, instead getting a message asking me to insert bootable media and hitting any key.
Did you ever get this resolved? Did you have to RMA?
I have the exact same problem. Now i cant access my boot drive and cant get computer started. Panic! Will I loose all of the stuff on that drive?
Sorry for the late reply TK, but yes I did end up having to RMA. I contacted Intel and described the issue and the troubleshooting steps I took and the rep initiated the RMA process.
iddilassen, you should be able to access the boot drive if you just turn off your computer for a little bit and turn it back on. If not, your issue is not quite the same, if your drive is completely inaccessible you may lose your data. I was able to back up my drive and restore it to a new drive.
Run a very good test of your RAM right off...
Yes!!! It REALLY is 25 years old++ now!!!!
If you have a dead RAM stick... The whole show just dies...
Not a hard drive issue at all in the 99.9% most cases...
I replace RAM sticks most of the time now in the cases of real hardware failure...
