Do a Hard Drive Test (using SeaTools) and see what happens.

Can that be run on the SSD? I have never had a problem with the SSD and I can't exactly use the original HDD because it is now being used as external storage.

If not, do you know of any other tools that I can use for my solid state drive?

Do you think that that tool can be used with any SSD or just Intel's? If it makes a difference mine is OCZ.

Hold a sec - didn't notice the compatibility in the Intel SSD Tool.
DO NOT RUN IT YET!

Haha don't worry I haven't yet for that exact reason. Let me know if you come up with anything else. By the way, besides the SSD do you have any other ideas on my freezing problem, do you think it's a hardware problem? I'm also thinking I might reinstall windows 7 again, for some reason I think it might be an update or win 7 service pack 1. Let me know thanks.

So this should work on other SSD's? Also what do you think of a windows re-installation because of updates or the service pack?

If you want to do clean install - that's fine for me. If it's fine for you - do it.
