There is your problem, the first line.
As to what is causing that... maybe bad SATA cable?

From HDS forum -
Such data communication problems are caused by incorrect, loose SATA cable connections.
Hard disks log all of these problems in its lifetime and this is what Hard Disk Sentinel reads and displays.

So what should i do try an other cable? Like remove the ssd and plug it into an other cable, but i assume i need to change also something in bios after right?
 
I don't know what your system specs are, you didn't say.
Just remove the cable and put in a new one, or as you said, move the cable to another SATA slot (you do need to try both though to know if its cable or slot)
BIOS maybe affected, but shouldn't have to do anything.
