Hi Guys

I wondered if anyone might be able to help me with a PC problem that I suspect might be my SSD dying.

Completely out of the blue about a week ago my PC started to freeze a few minutes after entering windows. Every time I try to run CHKDSK it freezes at 15% of stage 4 of 5 for a few minutes before resetting. I wondered if it was windows and have formatted the drive and attempted to reinstall, though it fails every time saying that Windows cannot find a file.

I did wonder if it was the motherboard and have updated the drivers, without any improvement.

How can I find out if it really is the SSD that is playing up and what can I do about it if it is?

I built the computer just over a year ago with the following components:
Samsung SH-S223 22x DVD±RW DL & RAM SATA Optical Drive - OEM Black
Intel Core i7 870 2.93GHz Socket LGA 1156 8MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor
Asus P7P55D-E LX P55 Socket 1156 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2 Socket 775, 1156, 1155, 1366, AM2, AM3 Heatpipe CPU Cooler
******** WD20EARS 2TB Hard Drive SATAII 64MB Cache - OEM Caviar Green
Corsair 850W TX Series PSU - 140mm Fan - 5 Year Warranty
Samsung SyncMaster 2333T LCD TFT 23" DVI-D Monitor
Corsair CSSD-F120GB2-BRKT Force 120GB Solid State Drive
ATI Radeon 6870 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
Corsair 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz Dominator Memory Kit CL8 (8-8-8-24) 1.65V

It was running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit before it all went wrong!

Any help or advice would be absolutely great.

Can you slap it in another PC and see if you can detect anything wrong with it?
