Memory Diagnostics Tool
I ended up I believe doing 12 passes over the course of 15 hours Friday of last week

By the way I was using memtest86+ to test the ram

I've decided I am going to backup whatever files I need, keep a log of the programs that I use and buy myself a SSD hard drive in the coming days. Will install it and keep you all posted as to what happens next

May I suggest that you look at this: SSD - Install and Transfer the Operating System

Thanks, I just got the Samsung 840 Pro 128 GB SSD and I am most likely going to do the migration

So I installed the SSD a few days ago, tried to do a data migration but the Samsung migration software failed trying to recognize the SATA HDD. I ended up having to do chkdsk which ran for a good four hours, found some errors, fixed them. Was able to boot into the OS and proceeded to try again with migration and to my surprise the software recognized the volume of SATA HDD and proceeded to copy the information over to the new Samsung 840 Pro SSD.

I shut down the PC, unplugged the SATA HDD, booted into the bios, changed the boot order so the SSD booted first. Restarted the PC and it booted right into the SSD within a good 5-10 seconds. Everything loaded perfectly fine and all my original data was intact.

The PC is working like a charm right now and everything loads really fast and I'm glad. Also the last time the PC froze, an then did the hard shutdown and restart was last Sunday when I had my old Western Digital SATA HDD in here. Since then I haven't had a single freeze and hopefully it was the old HDD that was causing issues.

I have a bunch of programs that are pretty big file size wise that I use. For photo editing I got Adobe Photoshop and Corel Paint Shop Pro X5. Video editing Adobe Premiere. Lastly for my musical creation, I'm a solo musician I have Pro-Tools, Cubase and a few other odds and ends. Tested all of them when right after everything was finished and I did the firmware updates and they load as quick I've ever seen anything load. Usually within a few seconds. Photoshop takes a max of three seconds to load completely compared to a good 9-12 seconds when I had my old drive in there.

What I really notice is the major speed increase in boot up time. It used to take a good 2 solid minutes just for the machine to fully boot into windows and that includes me putting my password in. Now it takes around 20 seconds tops and that includes typing in my password.

If they aren't then its time for a new motherboard which I actually don't mind changing out for a new one.
