I have a strange problem. Since I've got the Crucial SSD (model: Crucial_CT256MX100SSD1) i ocassionly get random shut downs.
It happened with Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 - the computer shut downs with blue screen that indicates a problem with the hard drive (or connection).
After I try to reboot the PC no boot device is found and the SSD isnt recognized either. Then I shut down the computer and when I turn it back on - it works like a charm.
This problem has occured about 4-5 times for 2 years but its really annoying and mostly - unexpected. I have tried differend SATA3 ports but still with no success.
Any ideas or suggestions? Maybe changing firmware? Below is the info for the drive from Aida:

Enable hot swap for the sata port your drive is connected to in your BIOS. It will prevent your system using power saving measures on the sata port which may be resposible for this happening.

Done that and I am updating the firmware.
Will check the similar thread for MX100 for solutions and reply here if the problem persists.
