Well - dump files if you can retrieve them are located C:\Windows\Minidumps\ but can find them elsewhere as well depending on what dumped/how large.

With the info you've provided in this thread, one, or both, of your HDDs in your RAID config is dying or dead. Back up your data ASAP and replace the drive(s).

What firmware are you on. If it is 0309 or older you need to update them on a different computer. There is a bug in the older firmwares on the M4s that after some weird amount of time SMART throws invalid errors and it seems that your hard drives are failing. I just got the same thing with my RAID0 M4s and I was freaking out. here is the link to crucial for the firmware update.

Good advice, it's a possibility. Always forgetting that SSDs nowadays are still really new architecture, and therefore buggy. I always recommend updating the firmware is the first thing you should do after getting an SSD set up.

It is a very peculiar thing that wasn't exactly advertised but if you do some googling it shows up quite prominent in M4s with more than 2000 hours and on firmware 0309 or older. However my issue showed up way earlier than 2000 hours. The most current firmware is said to fix it and is firmware update 000f.

Just a side note: It says backup your data and I hope you already have because mine kept up the BSOD every 60 mins or so and I hadn't had enough time between intervals to do a complete backup. That being said I didn't lose anything with the update but it is alwasy better to be safe with that sort of thing.

I'll try updating the firmware of the SSDs. Memtest didn't find anything wrong with my RAM though. As for the preparing security options screen, it's only shown up once, but google says it's not a real error for windows 7 and that's its a virus, but malwarebytes, etc don't find anything at all o.o.

And all my data is on another hard drive, only thing that was on the SSD was Windows, Office and one game I play, everything else is on a 2tb drive. I'll try updating firmware and see if that fixes it.

The crucial m4 updater program says I have no SSDs that need to be updated o.o. I have firmware 0009 on mine. I did the boot image install and it updated to 000F on both drives.

Cool, Did that work so far or is it doing the same things?

It's been an hour so far and no lockups or anything. So I'm just going to keep using it like I have been to cause it to crash and see if it happens again.

I still have no idea what caused that "preparing security options" screen to appear though.

Could be firmware, as has been suggested.

Another possibility is a transient hardware error, like a bad or loose cable.

I though all sorts of things when it happened to me about a ten days ago. My RAID just started dropping out, started getting BSOD, I had to cold boot for it to find my RAID again just before I found the updated firmware.

Funny thing was I had been testing OCs on my RAM when it started happening and I thought I had damaged the memory controller in the cpu because it just started the BSOD at first. Then I thought maybe I had damaged SATA controller or something like that because it started dropping my RAID constantly. The longer it went from first instance the worse it got. I finally had to take my extra SSD out of my Laptop do a fresh install of Windows and update them because I could no longer get to the desktop.
