System Failure!

Computer crashes for no reason then fails to start. I get half of the post screen which says 1 Keyboard 2 Mice 1Hub then nothing?
It should show all the HDD installed next but nothing shows. The only way of getting the computer to boot after this is to disconnect SSD from the motherboard? Any Ideas guys and gals...

No info. No BSOD just crash and burn.
All I got is an Asus mobo. Corsair SSD and Pioneer DVD rom.

Download Speccy and post more details on your hardware, it will help us to try and figure this out.

Model and size of your Corsair SSD?
Could be some issues with this, they have been having some firmware problems with the SandForce controller.
Do you have a HDD in your system?

If you can boot to a HDD and an OS.

Check that the dump settings are correct - Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Run the manufacturers harddrive diagnostics.

Have you been checking your temperatures?
Use Core Temp, to check the CPU temps when at idle, under load and/or testing.
Let us know the minimum and maximum temps you get.

Then run memtest86+ with all your RAM installed, for a full 7 passes, best to run overnight.
If you get any errors you can stop the test.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Event 59
I don't know what caused that error.
Event 1
That is the last version of Nero 8
Event 2
I don't use windows to backup my system anyway as the SSD is too small.

Memtest
Try tonite.

Core temps are fine no overheating at all.

Did you check your crash dump settings?
A crash dump file will help a lot.

Event 59 is a HDD or SSD error.
Do you have a hard drive in your system?
If I remember correctly, your info listed a 200 (?) GB drive but, no further info.

If you have a HDD run the manufacturers diagnostic tool.

If your still having crashes, the easiest way to check if it's the SSD is to clone the OS onto a HDD and disconnect the SSD.
Corsair SSDs have been having BSoD issues, especially with SandForce controllers.
Check for a SSD firmware update.

Core temps are 'fine', which is good, But Can you give me a number for idle and under load?

To be honest Dave I have no Idea what I'm looking for. I have a limited knowledge of diagnostics. Everything I know I had to learn myself.
I updated the SSD as a precaution.
BIOS I have the latest updates.
I have uploaded the Core temp values.
Why are they so erratic?
Where have they gone.?
I don't have a HDD.
Where are the crash dump files located? I remember seeing them run when other PC's crash but there was no run of the crash dump files on this computer.
Is capture 2 what I'm looking for?

First time I've seen CoreTemp show 0C.
Just D/L'ed that version and it's working for me.

Is it the installed or standalone version?
I use the standalone (Zip version, no installer), try it.
Delete the one you have now and D/L a new one.
Your CPU is listed on their site so should work.

Or just D/L HWINFO in 32 or 64bit version:
HWiNFO64
HWiNFO32

I use the standalone version (Portable Zip v3.92-1500) of this also, no installer.
Click the 'Sensors' tab on the main page, CPU temps.

Your Crash dump files are in C:\Windows\Minidump

Check the crash dump settings.
Have a look at this tutorial:
