  1. hi all
    Recently i have been getting system lock ups and blue screen error.First i was getting this one
    A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated.
    Now im getting this.
    The system encountered an uncorrectable hardware error.
    Each time this happens it fails to make a dump file so i cant post any.
    In event viewer im getting alot of these errors.
    The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort0
    So after having to restart i get problems with.
    Windows loading screan hangs.
    Disk read error hit ctrl,alt del
    Unable to boot from disk(says it was unable to connect to a device)
    Drives will randomly disapear and reapear
    What i have to do to boot to windows or from disk is to shut down for a min or 2 then it will boot.
    I have tested ram with memtest with was fine and tried to test hd with seagate tools but it would'nt see any drive

    Any help with this would be much appreciated

    No; I take it this is an SSD, correct? If it is, try running your system without the SSD connected. What happens?

    Hmmm, I should have realized that Windows is on your SSD. :blush:

    Anyway, do a search and see if there are known issues with this Crucial SSD.
