Hey guys, just got this problem recently, my computer just freezes randomly but not in a constant basis and there was also maybe twice my PC gave me an error regarding C:\Windows\System32\winload.exe 0xc00000e9. I did some research on these, but there where different types of causes on the error, so I want to know mine.

Further info:
I did no changes in my BIOS
No Overclocking done
Encountered this error a long long time ago, what fixes that was I transferred my SATA connector to a different slot.
I'm also suspecting it has something to do with my ipod and cellphone being connected to my PC

Tnx in advance guys!

Specs? (If you have a second generation Core i with a 6 series motherboard, is it marked revision 3.0?) The chipset on these motherboards, before Rev 3.0, may have a SATA error.

TO test your HDD, burn this .iso to disk and run:

i3 530
Foxconn H55MXV
4 GB Mem
GTX 550ti
Seasonic 620w
HD Hitachi HDS721050CL

Not sure what you meant by the rev. part, but on CpU Z there are two, Chipset Rev. 12 Southbridge Rev 06. Tried Checkdisk and passmark(short test) and shows no error. I'm gonna try the link you gave also

Don't worry, that system isn't affected by the SATA chipset bug. Report back with the results of the hdd test.
