Windows 7: BSOD on start-up before desktop

So before even turning the computer on today...

-I removed and re-seated all cables (power cables, sata cables, etc) and the RAM in their slots.
-Start-up gives BSOD.
-Go to safe mode w/ networking.
-Start backing up my data (cause I'm considering a format pretty soon here).
-Reboot system... normal mode works just fine once again.
-Virus scans with Hitman Pro, TDSS Killer & Windows Defender Offline all come back 100% clean (I do not run a "full" real-time virus software)
-I've confirmed my SSD has the latest firmware and my MOBO is also running the latest BIOS.
-A chkdsk /f/r comes back with no errors detected.

Can I run SeaTools, even though I don't have a Seagate drive?

Any other suggestions before I format? Should I rollback to a prior BIOS firmware? Any thing I can do to test my SSD? I've ran MemTest86 for RAM, no errors thru multiple passes.

And why, once I get back into my desktop, can I run for hours (Battlefield 3, other high end games, surfing websites etc) with no crashes... but if it starts up after a length (few hours, etc) of time being turned off, that's when this occurs? It's so frustrating and confusing.

Thanks.

It's just now started to crash when it was running other standard processes (like opening a webpage, or running an update for Steam). I think it is the SSD is failing. I'm going to work with OCZ and see what they can do to help.

Glad I got some of my items backed up before this started to occur... hopefully I didn't forget anything. Mostly a gaming computer, my MacBook Air is for work and other important things.

Free up the startup.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept the restart.
Does it make any changes there?

Safe mode won't even boot any more. Format and reinstall it is. Going to use a bootable linux disc to see if I can recover any files I may had missed when I had my small chance to get a few files off the first time.

Thanks.

If you haven't formatted the drive till now, you can recover all your files using the installer disc.

Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

That's cool feature to know about. I'm just using a bootable Ubuntu environment. Thanks again.

Now working with support from the OCZ forums.

Support Question BSOD on start-up before desktop

Formated and Reinstalled... same issue. Just now testing (new format/install) using a brand new WD Caviar Blue 500GB HDD.

Thanks again for the assistance up to this point. Pretty sure the SSD is the culprit. Guess I'll find out soon.
