In general, I would say that if your RAM, CPU, and other components are working well that you may have an issue with your PSU or your hard drive. I would run diagnostics on both of them to see if that helps. I know there are tools online for hard drive tests, but I'm not sure about the PSU; for that reason I would test the hard drives first. Here's a link to an article that has a couple programs: http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-disk-health-m...
Update us if you get any more info from those sites. Good luck!
I'm not a new guy when it comes to computer trouble shooting but this one is really a hard one to pin point.
I wouldn't say it is a virus as this i'm on my second windows installation(clean installation formatted ssds and all of that.) Avg does not come up with anything either.
I did google the bbc code at the start of the windows diagnostic screen(the little window that pops up after a bluescreen and gives you a summary of the bsod)
and it seems to be a hard one to pinpoint.
the f4 can either be the hard drive(ssd in this case. f4 deals with i/o or drivers ). at least according to windows seven forums.
i feel pretty confident that my psu is fine. i'll have to see if i have any others lying around to test with just to be sure.
I really feel its the ssd. i never really liked the ocz name but for 40 dollars(on newegg must have been a mess up on their part because as soon as i purchased it it was changed to its original price) it was hard to pass up.
i already use crystal disk info and ssd life both say my ssd is in 100% fine condition.
Do you have a data drive as well? (I'm gonna say yes since you paid $40 for the SSD, so it's probably small) Try installing Windows on your HDD and see if you get improved performance. Or try speaking with OCZ's customer service to see if others have experienced this problem.
