Windows 7: ntoskrnl BSOD - Old system with new ssd

ntoskrnl BSOD - Old system with new ssd

Normally I can get to the bottom of most BSOD, this one is beating me somewhat though. Its on my older Q6600 build, which is used mostly as media center/for my gf to play the sims 3. It had a ssd in it which decided to die completely, which got replaced under warrenty. Finally get new ssd, reinstall everything, but now I get random BSOD, aprox 2 - 3 times a day.

Tried - Killed my oc (its was only to 2.7ghz and has a massive aftermarket cooler)
- Reseat componets
- Lots of driver reinstalls
- Memtest
- Reflashed the BIOS

Suspecting that it might be a dodge sata cable or failing chipset, but I can't read more than basic BSOD codes (tried to get mini dump data but I dont have the tools or knowledge)

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Regards,

I didn't fill it out initially as this is not my main machine thats having issues. They are all filled out now. Most of the bluescreens seem to happen on wakeup from sleep (which as its a HTPC it does a lot).

Last bluescreen it didn't find bootmngr or reboot, but was fine after another reboot.

The AHCI bios seems to be a little slow in recgonising drives after a bluescreen also, which I have had happen to me with older SSD's just before they failed.

Hi Jynkman, most of your BSOD point to hard drive fault, Can you disconnect all the drives except the SSD which is your OS Drive.

After that can you follow this guide:

msconfig - boot faster and crash less.

1. Click on the Windows 7 start icon in the bottom left corner of your screen.

2. Type msconfig in the search box and then either press enter on your keyboard or double-click on the msconfig program that appears in the search results.

3. Windows 7 will launch Microsoft's System Configuration Utility. Click on the Startup tab.

4. This takes you to a page with a list of "startup items." Startup items are programs that are automatically loaded every time you turn on your computer. Some startup programs are absolutely necessary e.g Anti Virus, others are simply a waste of RAM.

5. Click on the OK button.

6. A message will pop up telling you that you must restart your computer before these changes will take effect. Click on "Restart" and your computer will automatically reboot.

7. That's it! Your computer should now boot faster and crash less.

If you ever want to turn on any of the startup items you disabled with msconfig , just run msconfig again.

Once all the above have been done, can you use your PC and post any dump files if / when you get a BSOD.

Thanks

Unfortunately my suspicion was correct, and the SSD has flatout died. Time for another RMA. Thanks for the help.
