SSD Running like garbage plz help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just bought a ocz vertex 2 ssd for my asus g72gx laptop. It has a second hard drive slot so i installed it there. After installing a fresh copy of windows ultimate 64 bit and some other various programs, i began to notice the computer randomly freezing for up to 30 seconds. It happened in any program i was in. I loaded Guild Wars up and my fps dropped to 1 at times and ping was in the thousands. I ran a ssd benchmark and my sequential write was 1-3mb/s which is outrageously slow my hdd is have runs at around 60-70mb/s. I tried swapping the hdd and ssd physical positions in my laptop. I also tried some tweaks i read about but they barely did anything. I tried updating the firmware but it says firmware update not supported on primary drive. Keep in mind that my g72gx ran flawlessly and i only wanted a performance boost from the ssd. Any help is appreciated.

PS if i left any necessary information out let me know

RMA the SSD... Problem most likely solved. BIOS update on the laptop wouldn't hurt either
