Ensure the Crucial SSD firmware is up to date.

SSD and Seatools?

In your instructions it says to run SeaTools, but then it says:

Do not run SeaTools on an SSD as the results will be invalid.

My hard drive is SSD.


Should I skip running Seatools and run the others chkdsk and HD Tune?

My reply is a standard reply when testing the hard drives, skip SeaTools for SSD as it says..

Screenshots

Thanks,

I ran the tests. Here are the screenshots. Also the crucial SSD is not upgraded to the highest firmware. It looks like it is behind an iteration. I need to backup the hard drive in order to upgrade. Should I go ahead and back up the hard drive and upgrade the firmware? It will probably take me a while to make sure everything is backed up correctly. Let me know if I missed something with the tests.

Please run the chkdsk command again to see if there still are corrections that need to be made.

That looks better

See if you get problems again.

IMHO it shouldn't be a question necessary to ask, because I asked to do it

Upgrade for firmware

Ok, I will go ahead and try and upgrade the firmware today.

It seems like the Blue screens have either stopped or slowed down tremendously.

The last confirmed blue screen I saw was on the 24th. There was an indication of one on the 26th, but I think I might have manually caused that shut down.

Anyway, after I upgrade the firmware and monitor a bit longer, I will mark this a solved.

Thank You!
