And for the SSD, you do not want to tick both boxes in the Disk Check, just the automatically fix file system errors box.
Crap, I just did the disk check with both boxes ticked...did I damage it in any way doing that? The PC started up windows so fast after the check so I didnt see if it had repaired anything. No pop up or anything after

It won't damage it, it just isn't necessary for SSDs since they do not have the same hardware as HDDs. You can check the log following the steps in Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

Have bad news. Your motherboard does not have an update for SSD technology. The latest update is two months after your current one and is May, 2009. That was before SSDs really started getting support on motherboards. You can contact ASUS and ask what they recommend for you, but I am guessing this is part of why you are having problems with the disk.

Ahhh, no wonder I got all these problems. But its no problem sir, atleast now I know Soooo, I have a regular harddrive as well. Should I just install win 7 on that one and just remove the ssd?

I must say the support here is excellent! I have tried so many things to solve this for weeks. Thank you again!

I would switch to the HDD until you can get a system that supports the SSD or until you can talk to ASUS about your current motherboard and whether you can get support for the SSD with that board.

Ok...

Removed my SSD disk and did a fresh install of win7 Home Premium 64b on my old HDD.
Did all the windows updates
Tried to load a game....SAME CRASH to desktop
When I tried to refresh my windows experience index I got a BSOD
Created the dump file and health report and have attached it to this post
Tried sfc /scannow - found several files that where corrupted, but when I added the line to create a text file on my desktop for the report, nothing happened. So I dont have that report, sorry.

Also followed your steps to create the Error report in english - now it pops up first it cant find the file..then it appears and when I try to save it (in english) another error telling me it cant be found. I have attached those two errors as a print screen image.
Its in norwegian, but they say:
1. One or more logs has errors
2. System cant find the file

Now I tried the repair from dvd. It starts up and start unpacking...then it stops with an error telling me it cant upgrade...

Is this a buggy OS dvd I`ve got here? Was bought legit at the store (online) and I got the physical dvd right here.

I also checked with Microsoft upgrade advisor that my system was ready for win7 64b. Would it help to go to microsoft and upgrade to win7 64 pro? As a downloaded version?

My computer is soon going out the window...lol

Edit: managed to get a sfc text file with the info on corrupted files. Have attached it here

Edit2: Updated computer spec for my HDD as I removed my SSD

Alright, here is what you should do. Download and install a fresh version of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 from Windows 7 Home Premium x64 with SP1 ISO and burn it to disc. See if you have the same problems with that disc.

Download it to pc - burn it to a disc and then reboot with the disk and install, right?
Do I need a burn program for this or just drag the file over to the disc?

Cheers

You will need a burn program. Do you need help finding one?

Many on here recommend The Official ImgBurn Website
