I'm trying to install a new MX500 250GB into a Lenovo B570 laptop.
A I set out to clone the new SSD using my already installed Acronis (2010). The process looked exactly like the online instructions showed. The process started and I watched it run. At about 42% progress the screen went black and the disk light glowed very dimly (maybe flickered). Nothing I could try would bring the screen back to life. Assuming it was still working, I left it overnight. The next AM the system was shutdown. I hit the power button and early in the startup a msg went by saying that Acronis had completed. I installed the SSd and at power ON got an error. I didn't write it down but it sounded like it couldn't find some critical info.
B I have a fresh Acronis system backup so I booted from the Acronins restart disk and ran a full system restore. That ran to completion. I restarted the PC and Windows 10 came up and looked just like my original system.
The problem is that it will only run for about 2 minutes and then freezes. The mouse pointer will move around and turns into the blue spinning wheel at various points. Nothing will respond to a mouse click tho. Nove even the Task Manager.
C Is there something I should try next?
Could the new SSD be bad"
Can we check for a bad SSD some way/
D Help help help. :-) I'm back running just fine with the original HD in place.

Most of the cases in which I saw this kind of behavior were caused by a bad/improper storage driver or some issues with link power management.
Could you please check it with Device manager -> IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers (or Storage Controllers) -> right click on the selected controller -> Properties -> Driver tab
