Windows 7: Corrupt SSD? Can Boot

Corrupt SSD? Can Boot

I will preface by saying that I believe that my issue is caused by my Kingston 240GB SSD, but if I am mistaken feel free to educate me.

Yesterday my computer hung up on me during use, and I left it alone to see if it would resolve itself. Presumably after a BSOD it rebooted to the following:

error: unknown filesystem.
Entering rescue mode...
grub rescue>
I thought that my boot drive had simply quit on me, but I gave windows recovery a try for installation media. I first opened cmd and ran a "diskpart -> list disk" and saw that diskpart saw my primary drive but it was listed with 0B available space. I went ahead with recovery and after a few restarts my computer booted normally to the login screen, nothing seemed off. Delighted, I logged in and was greeted with the longest "Welcome" message I've ever seen followed by "Preparing Desktop...". After this finished I was given a black desktop with no icons and a notification that I had been logged in with a default profile. After a few seconds it hung again and I gave it a hard reboot. This time I brought it up in safe mode and after logging in I was given this message:

C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the internet of your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location.
I tried running a Malewarebytes scan just to see if it came up with anything and after a little while I received the BSOD, which I was too slow to capture. I brought my machine back to safe mode, was greeted with the same error as above and the BSOD problem details:

BCCode: f4
BCP1: 0000000000000003
BCP4: FFFFF80002BC37B0
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 768_1
Just for fun I also ran a memory diagnostic that came up with no problems detected. It seems to me that part of my SSD is corrupt. Is there any way of fixing this?

Do you have Linux on that too?

Download bootable CD of Partition Wizard free (Bootable Partition Manager | MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable Edition) and boot with it, post a photograph of it with SSD details seen please.

Do you need to rescue files from it? Do you have backups?

As an update, I ran chkdsk on it (should have been my first approach) and it fixed some corrupt files and booted up without a problem. I guess my question now is should I get a new drive? Is something wrong with this one or does this happen form time to time?
