Hmm, that is very strange. I have never seen that in 4 years of SSD operation with 6 different SSDs. What make/model is your SSD ??

It's the Samsung MZ-7TD250BW.

Hmm, husband said he didn't run updates for the new SSD. We'll give that a go and see if it clears up the problem.

The SSD is already updated with the latest firmware so I guess that's not a solution....

That's an 840 series. Some other people had reported problems with it. The 830 series seems to be more stable.

Do you have a flash stick plugged in at time you reboot, or any other drive?

Try setting SSD first to boot in BIOS setup to be sure.

Obviously it seems like I need to get a different SSD now; do you think we should switch to the 830 or are there brands that you think will outperform the Samsungs?

This whole thing is becoming very maddening. Photoshop is also giving me issues with using the key code, but I guess I need to hold off on that anyway if I have to get a new SSD. I own a small photography business and my computer crashed right when I had a huge order to place so this is just icing on the cake. I'm very jealous of all you computer savvy people!

The Samsung 830 is good or the Crucial M4. And 128GB would probably suffice. Performance is all the same. Don't get impressed by those high transfer nums.. They do nothing for the OS. It is the fast access time that gives the performance.
