My wife's Dell Latitude D531 with a IDE\DiskM4-CT128M4SSD2____070H, was getting random BSODs and Windows Logs showed Event ID 508 ESENT error something like this:
"ESENT Event 508 A Request to write to the file .... bytes succeeded, but took an abnormaly long time."
I reseated the memory and things seemed to improve but the the error still appeared occasionally...no BSODs for several days. BlueScreenView log indicated hard disk errors.
Finally, I left the computer on all night last night on the BIOS setup for the SSD to "drain" as I was told to do some years ago when the computer processes slowed to a crawl.
Anyway, this morning there are no system errors in the event logs. I have my fingers crossed.
The OS is Windows Vista Business.
Well, there are two Windows event log Applications warnings this afternoon. Event ID 508 ESENT. I obviously haven't fixed anything. Every week I use EZ Gig IV and the Apricorn USB adapter that I bought from Crucial with this SSD to clone the drive as a backup using the 80 GB drive that came with the computer. I put this old drive back in the computer tonight and will post more information after my wife uses the computer for a few days.
Only one Event ID 508 ESENT Application Warning yesterday with the old drive. I will put the SSD back in today and see what happens.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I had this same problem and it was nor hardware. The Poweliks trojan was found by a rootkit detector and removed. It does not download any files so it gets past most antivirus and malware detectors...it changes some code to fetch ads to your computer in the background and appear to click on them...guess it has to write this stuff to some database files and thats where the ESENT error gets generated. Anyone with this 508 533 error should check for trojans with a really good rootkit detector such as Hitman Pro, Combofix, etc.
