SSD problem

I have figured out whats wrong. For some apparent reason, my master boot record keeps getting corrupted and when i boot after hilbernating, its as if theres no operating system whatsoever. So my question is, why does my mbr keep getting erased/corrupted after every few days? (fixed the problem by using startup repair through windows 7 usb)

download from bleeping computer delete any rubbish these find.
If not try them and I see you are running a dual boot too it might be having conflicts within the system - I know when I tried dual booting Linux Mint and 7 I had no choice in the end but to wipe and reinstall just the 7 because booting the thing to 7 first ended up with it more often than not booting Mint.
Some system specs would be good too mate.

Updated my system specs Also, it is no longer dual boot as i deleted the ubuntu partition and formatted both drives and re installed windows 7 to check if ubuntu was the problem , and its not apparently. Will run the programs you suggested and post back.

Ok now I am assuming you have run those scans too?? if not run them it just goes to eleiminate possibilities.
Now how did you reinstall - factory restore?? or some rescue media?

running the scan this very moment, i reinstalled by scratch, booted from a windows 7 usb, formatted everything making it unallocated space, installed and put in a windows 7 key i grabbed from my computer long time back (in case something happened) .

Update:
No errors from first scan, restarting computer for disk check.

Ok now if you still get problems the best way of getting the freshest ISO of Windows 7 is using this tutorial
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
Just make sure you pick the ISO for the original version and the best thing about this way is you can dump the bloatware. See my pic for the ISO.

check disk produced no errors, and i dont see what a fresh install would do. I've freshly installed my windows with the right windows 7 dvd (downloaded from windows website) many times and would not like to go through the process again. Do you have any other suggestions?

Well go with Rangers suggestion as I was going to suggest a drive test but as you are booting from a SSD the only test stuff for those is the manufacturers one and they are usually for performance rather than faults. The Seatools one is for Seagate SSD's and when I saw it earlier on today in another thread it didn't do much apart form what I said and testing the SMART feature.
As a matter of fact there was someone else I was posting to with a Transcend SSD and I could find very little in the way of support so I guess I am really going to have to rethink a few things.
