1 week ago i got a blue screen and had to reinstall windows, but after i did that my ssd has been really slow it takes around 2 min to boot it took 20 secs. and simple programs like firefox crash all the time, its really annoying.
so i downloaded atto and ran a test and i got horrible results link to download benchmark: http://i.imgur.com/lo6lm.png It's really unstable :S
And i have downloaded windows 7 service pack 1 and all the other updates/ drives.
So what should i do?

Is your SATA mode set to AHCI (in the BIOS)?

Are all of your drivers up to date (especially your video)?

That should still be plenty of space. Is your virtual memory on your SSD or on your HDD?

Yes, your drive is definitely unstable. Secure Erase the drive and perform a fresh install.
Benchmark again with ATTO and if you get the same results you should rma the drive.

i did secure erase my ssd 4 days ago, and it didn't fix the problem.

Connect the drive to the other ports on your motherboard. If you are getting the same results then return the drive and get a replacement.

Also try a different SATA cable (maybe the one you're using on your HDD) and see if that is the cause of your problems.
