1 year old SSD 64g Crucial M4 Fails to boot.... Freezing

So the other day I come home from work and my comp is sitting on a fail to boot screen, turn off the comp check connections turns on great. Nothing new, seen this before. About an hr later it freezes and fails to boot again only this time it wont reboot.

So i go to bed come home from work the next day turn on the comp and it boots just fine. An hr or so later it freezes and wont boot again, so I run the scenario through my head.

It wont auto reboot with the reset button you have to turn it completely off and reboot it after a few minutes.

With that being said, the SSD is windows only on it. I have 2 other drives with my junk on it.

Any help is greatly appreciated, there is a limited 3 year warranty from cucial but if we can get this thing fixed i'd much rather that than send it in .

Run crystaldiskinfo and see what the SMART status is on your drive, could just be a driver or bootloader problem that doesn't involve your SSD.

Bootloader wouldnt cause freezing though.

Now the driver.... Guess I have wanted to try windows 8. Of course idk looks pretty dumb ill try reformatting if this pic doesnt tell you anything. Seems good.

Not sure what a SMART status is.
The info at the bottom looks great to me, I believe that is what you mean?

Most likely the SSD firmware, it causes BSOD or freezes. Go to the company website to download the 010G

*your old firmware is 009.

Not sure how to "Solve" the thread. But the firmware update did the trick, thanks.
