    Random BSODs after upgrading to SSD


    Hi all, three weeks ago I bought a Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB SSD and a Seagate Barracuda 3TB. Installed Windows and all drivers again, and everything seemed too be working fine. However after a couple of hours I got multiple bluescreens in a short time(an hour or so). After that it worked fine for almost two weeks before I started getting them again.

    I downloaded BlueScreenView and saw through the dumps, but I couldn't find any specific software or driver that caused the problem. Most of the time the cause was something different. I hope anyone can make some sense of all this.

    Thanks in advance.

    I used Windows 7 Loader eXtreme Edition. And I did think of using it being the problem, but I've used it for around a year before upgrading, so I don't think that's the cause.

    I'm sorry but we do not provide support for pirate copies of Windows, you will need to install a genuine copy of Windows before getting any help at this site.

    ANY 'Loader' is basically designed for illegal purposes - to circumvent licensing requirements to which you legally agree when installing the OS.

    All run the risk of having other software included, which may include backdoors, Trojans and rootkits - and some can get though the most rigorous of AV scans without detection.
    It's for this reason that we always recommend a reformat and reinstall using genuine media an Key under these circumstances. There is no point in attempting to fix a system which may be hosing the internet with spam in its spare time!
