My current SSD for my OS is the Samsung 840 Pro 256GB version. As of late I've been having some odd issues that I am unsure are related to the SSD or Windows 7. The issues are as follows:
When I click an object in Windows, sometimes it takes 5 or more seconds to load. It will just sit there frozen, not letting me click anything else until it applies the action. An example would be in Foobar2000 when I click a song to play. It just sits there without playing it for 5 or seconds. The same can be said about clicking a folder in windows explorer. It will just sit there 'frozen' essentially until it decides to load it. Another strange issue I've had is the time it takes to restart my computer. Sometimes it takes over 30 seconds just to reboot and get to the BIOS screen from Windows 7. Other times it's 5 seconds. And in both cases, there are no programs running. So there shouldn't be such a huge delay in reboot speed.
Below is a benchmark I just ran:
Long ago, when I tried adding a RAMDisk to my system since I have 16GB of memory, I noticed my SSD reboot times drastically decreased. Well I put up with this for quite some time, then decided to reformat my comptuer due to some video card flickering issues I had (Which oddly enough seemed to happen at the same time I put the RAMDisk on my computer).
Has anyone had any 'freezing' moments or very slow to load moments with this SSD and resolved the issues?Edited by Vitaminx - 11/10/13 at 2:58pm
