I have had this home build system for 6months now and suddenly the comp starts having issues. It will freeze up and now its loosing SSD when I hard restart it. Windows 7 is installed to the SSD and everything else is stored on a 1T drive in the comp. The comp is not lagging or anything like that, runs fast then just freezes and wont do anything until you hard restart the comp, and even then it will forget the SSD and i have to go into the bios to reasign the SSD to boot. Comp is not overheating, and is clean (no dust). any ideas? this is drivng me crazy i cant even search the web without these crashes.

Windows 7

Chronos 120g SSD

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

It is possible that your SSD is failing, make a backup and try updating firmware.

SSD was update when i tried to run a firmware update. I have an old SATA drive now plugged into the comp and this morning i went to boot and it lost that drive but it wont loose my 1T drive, or CD, or external that are plugged in. for some reason it only looses which ever has windows installed. It still wont detect my SSD so its possible the SSD is dead now, and my old drive is dieing. could there be more to this issue then just SSD?
