    I know you mentioned you did diagnostics, did you run a chkdsk? I had a drive a few years ago that did the same thing (clicking, long boot up times, random freeze/bsod), S.M.A.R.T said it was failing and that it needed to be replaced. I ran a full chkdsk, took like 30 hours but the drive was fine for a while after that.

    I did, returned with no issues to be repaired. Since then it has still crashed on me though.


    I honestly really appreciate all the help guys. Also anyone with an ssd, do you think it is worth the extra dough? Please keep in mind money is really tight for me right now for me but I do appreciate good performance since I do a lot of graphics and comp sci.
