Comp randomly freezing, not recognizing ssd.

Hello everyone, i have a issue i cant seem to figure out. Currently what is going on is my computer will randomly freeze and i would need to power off and on. If i try and reboot it wont rexognize my hard drive. It occurs randomly sometimes quickly other times after a few hours of use.

Ive gone thru 2 different type of ram testing software. Ive tried reinstalling windows on both drives seperarely, new cables for connections. Installed a new gpu. Downloaded firmware for ssd drive as i found out my model would cause a similar problem once it reach a certain amount of hrs.

Both ram test came back fine. And all restarts and reinstalled windows did not solve the issue.

I have run out od ideas and I'm hoping someone here can shed some light.

My specs

4770k i7
16g g-skill ripjaw 1600
Asrock z84 extreme 4
M4 crucial 120g ssd
WD 640g hdd
G-force 770 PNY 2gb
Windows 8.1 64bit

  1. Did you try testing the hard disk by disk check.

    Sometimes corrupt sectors of hard drive randomly freezes your computer even it is high in specs.
  2. ^ That and try reseat RAM, and reset CMOS.
  3. well thats a problem D:
  4. I did try a check disk, but ive seen mentions of a program called hdtune. Would that give me a better summary of the hard drives assuming their in lies the issue?

    It could, but I would also try reseating RAM, and run Memtest86+ for a few hours. http://memtest.org/
