Something triggered it - did you shut the PC down properly? Its probably nothing but still.

Well it is happening again I have over 1300 errors in event viewer in both the application log and security log. In the application log they are mostly:
Source: ESENT
Event ID: 455
Task Category: Login/Recovery
In the system log they are mostly
Source:Ntf
Event ID: 55
Task Category: 55 (2)
I tried to take a screen shot but when I tried to save it I was todl "disk structure corrupted and unreadable"
Any thoughts?

Manually run chkdsk, right click your drive, select properties, tools, choose check now, tick both boxes and reboot. Also, run the short dst test in seagate seatools.

So I decided to do another install and when chkdsk ran when the only thing I had done was update Windows it made me nervous.
you would be right. chkdsk is forced to run when windows is not happy with the file allocation table. if you are rerunning windows make sure you wipe the drive / partition at least 3 times.

I don't have a Seagate Hard drive. I ran the diagnostics for my hard drive and it reported no errors.
The last time I formatted the partition I only had it overwrite twice. So it needs at least three overwrites?

Seatools works for internal hard drivers - run the pass.

It may have been the TRIM Windows update for your SSD. You should go to intel site Here and run the firmware update tool to make sure your SSD is up to date. Some of the intel SSD's have errors with TRIM and other firmware issues, so making sure your firmware is up to date will eliminate some of those issues and give us a better idea of the problem.

Sounds like the diagnostic tools listed here are for conventional HDD's. You should run the Intel SSD Toolbox for your SSD after updating your firmware if you are still having issues.

Agreed, as this is a SSD.
