Windows 7: Recurring BSODs at specific time, then SSD no more detected

Recurring BSODs at specific time, then SSD no more detected

As I was just using Google Chrome a few days ago, Windows started freezing - applications stopped working and a few seconds later I got a BSOD.
After that BSOD, it tried to reboot itself but then I got a black screen saying "Reboot and select proper boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device". That means the SSD on which my W7 is installed wasn't detected anymore.

I then did a manual reboot, and the SSD was back, normally detected. Windows started up normally, and I thought this was over. But then exactly 5-6min after startup, Windows froze out again, apps closing etc the same way before. BSOD, and SSD not detected anymore.
Manual reboot, SSD detected but again, 5-6min after startup Windows freezing, BSOD and SSD not detected anymore. It doesnt matter if I do something specific (chrome, spotify etc) or if I just stay on the desktop without opening anything - it freezes the same way. I also didnt notice any .exe launching at t+5min.

So always ~5 minutes after startup, apps start freezing and I get that BSOD, and then my SSD isnt detected anymore until I manually reboot the system.

I tried updating the firmware of my SSD (Corsair Force 40GB SATA II) but it didnt change anything.

Please help!

(Im new here, I hope I did everything right)

Hello and welcome to SF assssn .

The single dump file included in the file uploaded is 0xF4, which is more often than not attributed
to storage related issues. I would like more information if I may.

Please manually check the minidump folder for more dump file:
If dump files are present in that folder copy them to the Desktop, zip and upload in your next post.

Please upload a new MSINFO32 file:

Start → Run → type MSINFO32 then hit Enter.
In MSINFO32 go to, File → Save → name it your user-name.
Once the file is saved right click it and choose Send toCompressed (zipped) folder.

Attach the file in your next post.

Please export and upload your system event log:
  1. Start → type eventvwr → hit Enter.
  2. Toggle open the triangle to the left of Windows Logs, right-click on System and choose Save All Events As...
  3. A dialogue box will pop up asking you to name the file and select the save directory, name the file the same as your Seven Forums user-name and save it to the desktop.
  4. A second dialogue box will appear asking you to select the Display Information, select Display information for these languages and check the box next to English (if you don't have English automatically offered check the box at the bottom to display additional languages - Show all available languages and check English).
  5. Wait a few moments until the cursor returns to normal. The file will now be on your desktop (given it's the directory it was saved to) UserName.evtx, next to it there will be a folder called LocaleMetaData select both the .evtx file as well as the folder and compress them using Winrar / 7zip and attach it in your next post.

How old is the SSD?
Did you try a different set of SATA / Data & Power?
Did you try a different SATA port on the motherboard?

What is the make, model and age of your PSU?
Fill out this form and post back the result:

Hello :) .

The new dumps are all about failing hardware either the SATA port on the motherboard
/ the cables being used / the SSD itself.

I also see a variety of Disk / Registry errors were logged in the event log, unfortunately the MSINFO32
file is corrupt once more, please try again.

Please look for the latest firmware for the SSD and for a new configuration of the SATA.
Did you try a different set of SATA / Data & Power?
Did you try a different SATA port on the motherboard?
