Windows 7: Sudden Reset, SSD not recognized after, no seeming bsod

Sudden Reset, SSD not recognized after, no seeming bsod

Hi all,

I'm working with a relatively used computer from 2009, no real problems generally. Windows 7 working great, CPU cores at decent temperatures (~MAX 55cel), SSD seems to have no problems according to HD Tune Pro. UPDATE: GOT A BSOD (see reply)

In the past two days, computer just resets randomly, maybe an hour after boot. After restart, the motherboard takes an enormously long time (a bunch of minutes) while looking for SATA devices, eventually sees my dvd drive but NOT the SSD (and hence can’t boot). If it turn it off, wait a little, and turn it back on, it detects the SSD and boots fine.

I’m guessing it’s the SSD or the PSU, but I can’t find a way to test either (I’ve run HD Tune Pro on the SSD and there are no warnings or errors). I’ve searched for this error, and while a couple of people have asked similar questions, it either always presented with an BSOD, or there was no solution.

Any Ideas? Thanks!

CPU - Intel i7 920
mobo - EVGA X58
RAM - 12 gigs, (GSKILL I think)
PSU - Corsair TX750
Main Drive - CRUCIAL CT256M4SSD2 SSD

New crash, this time with a clear BSOD 0x000000F4. Information included below. I am now fully suspecting it is the SSD, so I updated the SSD firmware. Crucial doesn't seem to have any drive test utility, however.

For anyone who may have the same issue, my SSD had hit 5200+ hours of on time, and I found this. The new firmware fixed my issue.
