Trying to diagnose SSD vs motherboard (sorry it is so long a post...tried to include everything) - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
UPDATE:

Apparently what I ran into was the 5184 hours issue with earlier versions of the firmware (0009) compounded with an apparently buggy new firmware 010G. I was not aware of an issue that would cause the drives to start BSOD'ing every hour once you hit 5184 hours in service. Since I built the PC last fall, and hadn't messed with firmware updates until now, I wasn't aware of this issue. Since everything had been working fine so I never bothered updating firmware.

Now, maybe I was having a cable issue too, but the 5184 hours issue is at least a concurrent factor. (SSDLife indicates my current hours is 5273.)

However, while I was troubleshooting, I did update firmware to 010G...and continued to have a couple crashes and the SSD not recognized. After making my way to the Crucial forums, 010G does not have the best reputation over there.

I have now downflashed to 0309 and my system has been up for 17 hours straight. No crashes, reboots, or errors so far. We'll see what happens over the next couple days.

I may flash to 000F...but I will not be going back to 010G.

And so much for that...it just spontaneously rebooted.

Have you reinstalled yet?

I have not...but I'm fairly certainly that while I did have an SSD problem (firmware with the 5184 hours SMART problem) the problem is now with the memory or board and not the SSD or software.

Reason I say this is that I really stepped back and threw out all the other symptoms that *were* occurring and am focusing on only the problem currently occurring...the out of nowhere reboots. That path led me down the power or RAM possibilities. So a bit earlier, I ran HCImemtest...twice...and both times the PC spontaneously rebooted right after the 4th instance (one per core) was started.

So I'm fairly certain I need to go down the ram/bios/motherboard path now. Though I will be testing the reboot under HCImemtest again.

Your clocks stock? You should be since you've tried a bunch of other troubleshooting things.

I'd still do a fresh install, on a different drive if possible to rule out the drive. You can just unplug the SSD and create a partition on the HDD to install to temporarily.
