I just moved to a SSD this weekend as an upgrade figuring that the performance was worth the price. At first I thought that it was working fine, then it started freezing when opening and closing applications. Some forums mentioned RAM problems, but I built this computer only a year ago and have 8GB of RAM, which leads me to believe that there is another culprit.
It is a samsung 830 256GB ssd. I also have two hard drives in RAID0 for more storage. I am led to t
I am at the latest update for both now. It holds up a little better, but now freezes with the spinning loading icon up, and is stuck there. I have reinstalled windows multiple times, not sure what to do now.
Your motherboard has 4 SATA 3 (6Gb/s) ports. Is your SSD connected to one of the 2 Intel 6Gb/s ports (SATA3_0 or SATA3_1)?
Yes, the SSD is currently in Port 0, Bluray Drive in Port 1. I am not currently using the Marvell ports, but I have continued to have freezing issues despite doing this and deactivating it altogether. Everything is AHCI, currently testing the drive in a laptop to see if the drive is really the problem.
