Windows 7: BSOD random reboots won't locate SSD

BSOD random reboots won't locate SSD

Hi guys,

Hopefully I've included all the necesasry information.

I'm experiencingBSOD and/or random system reboots. As the system reboots, it doesn't seem to be able to locate the my 128GB SSD with the OS (64bit Win7). As I hear the single boot-beep from my motherboard I have to go over to my computer and hit the power button to boot up again and it locates the SSD with the OS again.

General information:

- Win7 sp1
- x64
- Intel i5-2500K CPU@3.30GHz
- 8GB ram

I've experienced these random reboots now for probably a few months +. No explainable pattern whatsoever. Less than a year old system with only new-market components.

Please see the attached zip with html from performance monitor and the BSOD Dump & system file folder.

Any help in this matter is grealy appreciated :)

Edit; BSOD info from a while back:

It would help to know what SSD you have... Does apply, for instance?

I had the same issue, but with a OCZ 60gb SSD. I was running my OS on the SSD using my 2 HD's for everything else. on 3-1-12 I began having BSOD's and Hard Hangs. found that the Motherboard was not recognizing my SSD and loaded windows onto one of the HD's. Still had BSOD's and noticed "after several days" that every 10mins or so my SSD would get "found" but then "get lost" a few minutes later. Everything would freeze when this happened and then BSOD. I have just started RMA for my drive. But once removed from my system I am running fine. I would suggest removing your SSD. If that works than RMA your drive.
