Hi, I just installed a 256g 840 Pro on an Asus P5Q Pro and am getting really weird freezes periodically. The system was stable in XP with a velociraptor for years, but I decided to upgrade to an SSD and Windows 7, and now it's completely unstable.
I've updated every driver I could find, disconnected all other drives and run the magician tool thing. It's in AHCI, if that matters.
I'm completely new to SSDs and Windows 7, so I don't know how to determine if the drive is bad or if there's a conflict or bad driver or something somewhere. The drive itself has the latest firmware. Any ideas?
It typically either has a mouse stutter that it recovers from or it will hard freeze and restart. There was only a BSOD once so far with a "stop: 0x00000124" message. All other times it just goes to black then restarts.
