Since updating my nvidia graphics drivers I've been getting this strange issue.
I was in hero loading screen on league of legends and alt tabbed to play some music. Computer just locked up, BSoD, restart. I am greeted with a "Disk read error - press ctrl+alt+del to restart" after successful POST. I restart, this time it shows me a different message, something along the lines of "No boot media, insert boot media and press any key to continue". I restart again and same thing shows.
I figured "**bleep**, ssd is dead". I turn off the PC and go on another PC to maybe see if somebody else has a similar issue and found a solution. After searching around for about 10 minutes and not finding anything useful I decide to try my PC again. Voila, it started up like nothing happened.
Just now, occurrence #2:
Playing borderlands 2 with a friend for about an hour. Entered a new area and somebody messaged me on steam, I alt tab, reply, and alt tab back into the game. Game started locking up, video would stop, audio would play.. Boom, BSoD, restart, "disk read error". I turn off the PC and wait 10 minutes. Everything back to normal.

@Starroil: have you checked your firmware version? The consistent frequency of your errors and the age fo your drive sounds like the old bugged firmware. You need 0309 or newer.

if you don't get help on here then it's best to ask Crucial (link to their customer services in my signature) because it likely means us forum users don't know the answer I'm afraid.
