Thx doc. My Nero12 is a fully licensed one but Nero Express isn't working and im unable to find the problem. Alcohol problem is solved by upgrading a driver.

Will wait and see what happens when I transfer things to my new laptop.

well, I'm still having problems... just not sure with what : windows 8 or my new intel ssd drive


OS seems to lockup from time to time for no reason
Guess I'm gonna have to go full on & update the bios, chipset & everything - what a downer :-(

My ssd gives me the dreaded "BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH" And from talking to other ssd users its down to heat. ssd's do not like any heat at all. Yes I know all the crap they say about them "No moving parts etc etc" But heat and low levels makes then act weird.

I'm thinking it's more down to the sleep/hibernation (dipm mode)

So I've updated my bios, turned off c3/c6 states (thanks for the tip kael), updated my ahci controller drivers... if it's still crashes, I'll be stumped :laugh:

So are you using SSD life app and setting up a temp limit warning?

Athe do you have your PC next to a furnace or something? I don't think I've ever heard of someone's SSD overheating. :dunno:

There are cases with certain SSD drives.
Solid State Drives (SSDs) are susceptible to becoming overheated and potentially shutting down if the drive enclosure in which they are situated is not fully populated with drives.
Content

In a partially populated drive enclosure, the enclosure sensor that monitors the temperature of the drives may return a false impression of the temperature of any SSDs located in that enclosure, thus failing to take preventative cooling measures in the case of overheating SSDs.
Not saying that this is his problem, just stating a fact.

Dukie another fix for your PC, delete system32.

You're on a 64 OS, what happens is sometimes the 64 bit OS conflicts with the 32 bit side and this can cause crashing among other things.

Don't really know much about ssd's harddrives, but I can tell you that ssd's in general don't like heat very much..
