Hi there,
i am encountering a problem recently that my computer somewhat freezes.I will be playing a game like LoL and then the sound will stop,after a few seconds the game will freeze,i wil alt-tab and everything click will freeze like a window or right clicking on the desktop.It forces me to restart and if i don't unplug my ssd and plug it again it will say no bootable device found.I find that it is more often when i have my second hard drive also installed.Is there a way to identify what component is causing the issue?Maybe a program that logs errors ?
Specs:
Intel Core i5 2400S
GA-Z77-DS3H rev1.1
Kingston FuryX 1866Mhz 2x4Gb
Kingston SSDNow v300 120Gb


 
Bad SSD likely.

The fact you have to plug the SSD back in confirms that to me.

I looked this up before for a different SSD and that was the case. Many people at Newegg etc saying the same thing (freezing, boot issues).

It's the reason I tell people to go with Samsung 850 EVO which is probably much more reliable though I don't have actual proof of that.

Having my second HDD also plugged in increases the rate at which the freezes happens.When the two are plugged in it happens like once a day and when it's only the SSD it takes a few days before it freezes.It could also be coincidence but we must factor all the components in the equation.
