Computer freeze every hour ! No real BSOD but cold reboot is necessary

Hi people and thanks for helping
I have an issue for 2 days now... my computer freeze almost every hour. I have to cold reboot it, reset reboot does'nt work.
After a moment, it says "insert a bootable drive....."
So : my system drive is a Crucial M4 SSD 256 Go on a SATA 6G intel controller (i had to change the controller from a MARVELL one that causes real BSOD's)
My date drive is a Seagate Barracuda 2T0 on the same 6G intel controller

Surprisingly, the event monitor tells me that the marvell mv91xx.sys could not be loaded !! (i have to say that i disabled the MARVELL SATA controller in the bios)

Can anybody help me ?
Oups ! Almost one hour ! i 'm gonna freezz !!
Cheers

Problem solved

That was it ! The crucial m4 had a bug in his older firmware versions that causes freezing of the SSD one hour after the boot. This problem appears only after 5000 hours of functionning !

The issue is solved by upgrading the firmware to the latest version on the crucial website

Thanks for your help ;-)
