Windows 7 freezing

Two days ago while playing an online game I received a blue screen. They happend in the past but very rarely so I didnt think much of it. And so I turn it off and back on and go back to doing what I was doing. After 5 minutes, same situation occurs and so I turn it off and on again just to realize that there is a deeper problem.

Also, what I forgot to mention is that each time I power it on "bootmgr is missing" pops up. I restart and hit f11 and pick the ssd that windows is on and it boots, just to freeze later on and get blue screen of death after a few minutes.

I've attempted to fix it using the help on windows installation disk: fix my computer -> use recovery tools, and after doing that bootmgr is missing has went away but the freezes are still present. I also reinstalled windows onto an old harddrive and it seems to be working fine. Therefore, either Windows must have somehow become corrupted or it's the ssd itself (ssd is just a few months old and I haven't experienced any problems with it before.)

TLDR

Problem
> pc started freezing out of no where
> freeze, followed by blue screen, forced restart
> on startup bootmgr is missing

Fix attempts

> used recovery tools options from installation
> bootmgr is missing is fixed, freezes about 2 mins after startup followed by blue screen still present
> installed fresh windows on another harddrive, works perfectly therefore it's either ssd or corrupted windows


I'm trying to get around the idea of formatting and performing a fresh install since I have a lot of programs installed and some data I need which I cant really back up now since the freezes happens too quickly. Windows started in safemode freezes also.

And so, any ideas what can be the cause and how it can be fixed?

By "Using recovery tools" does that mean you have tried a system restore and it have no effect. If not that should fix it if you have tried that boot windows in safe mode (f8) while booting and see if it BSods.

I've used start up repair and bootmgr missing went away, but system restore option is not possible since some window pops up after I try to initiate it. I wish I could tell you what the window says, but I'm currently away from home.
