Ever since I got my solid state hard drive (OCZ Agility 3 60GB), I have experienced a crash 1-2 times daily.
The computer freezes (normally all applications stop working and explorer.exe stops responding), then goes to a scrambled screen of a bunch of colors (shown in photo below), and sometimes goes to the BSOD.
Sapphire Radeon HD 6850
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Motherboard
4GB Ripjaws RAM (2x2GB)
500GB External HDD
OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD
OCZ 550W PSU
PIC of a crash:
Description: I was backing up a steam game from my External to the solid state, everything froze, switched to this screen, and finally went to the BSOD.
Update the Agility 3's firmware to version 2.22.
Also wouldn't hurt to update your motherboard's BIOS to version 2.3.
"-Toolbox will not update a primary system drive (e.g. drive letter "C:"). You must run Windows from another drive and then update your SSD using Toolbox."
So, how difficult would it be to update it from a Linux LiveCD?
I will also be updating the MoBo bios soon, when i have a chance to upgrade to Ivy.
