i put my machine to sleep like i always do before i went to bed and i have had no issues since getting this bad boy up a running. i come home from next day to play some d3 and right when i go to move the mouse i get blue screen. i was like ok restart this beast, well i was wrong. now i get nothing when it boots up. i used the SSD for d3 and my os. the seagate was from my old compaq machine that has factory installed vista home basic on it but i never used it for the os just for extra storage. i take my hd's to check on my bro's comp and i get nothing at all. on my comp the bios recognizes every component but not my SDD. the only thing i get every startup it says windows failed to start and to either do start up repair (which doesnt fix anything at all) or start normal. it brings up windows logo and then freezes and restarts. i get the 0xc000000f and it says bootmgr failed. which i dont see how that could have happened. so i get windows 7 installed on my seagate hd using my bros comp and try it in mine and i get the same error and everything...i bought a new hdd cause i thought that was the issue but im beginning to the its not that at all. i have a windows 7 disk and it just doesnt seem to work everytime i do a fresh format.
im totally stumped and running to out of ideas!

You need to install the OS on the computer that you want to use it on. I would be thinking of returning that SSD.

make sure you have all your mb bios updates and that the mb has set your ram right. i would also download hardware monitor and look at your temps and power supply voltage.
