Windows 7: New SSD causing issues

Windows 7 Ult x64 - SP1/ Windows 8 Pro x64

Good to hear the crashes have stopped.

RAM info looks OK, only other thing I can see is the CPU max temps are a bit high. It could be throttling down at those temps.
I'll assume you have a stock Intel cooler, you should remove it, clean the old thermal paste off, then re-apply new thermal paste.
Artic Silver 5 is recommended but most other brands are good.

Here is a pretty good review:

I'm not sure about accessing the CPU to perform that task. I can access the HDD and RAM easy enough. But remember it's a laptop. So accessing the CPU to do that will be harder.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

Dave may have forgotten it was a laptop. To help him and others not forget, please fill in your system specs in your profile and not in a post in this thread: System Info - See Your System Specs.

Also, have you gone through the steps listed by usasma in ? The SSD steps there are important for getting an SSD to run stable.

Windows 7 Home x64

Yea that's a possibility. I would enter system details in my profile but everytime I create a thread here it seems to be for a different system. What I'll do next time I need help, is update then based on the system I'm having issues with.

I had read that thread previously. I think possibly installing the Intel Matrix storage driver from HP was what stopped the BSOD eventually although I'm not 100%. More like 70%. Because I was trying so many things at once.

I will mark this as solved. Because the main issue (the crashing/BSOD) has stopped now. And whatevers left can probably be fixed and tweaked over time.

Big thanks to all that posted suggestions. I always get great response on this site and I really appreciate it.
