To be clear, right now my pc has ONE hard drive, and that is a 120gb OCZ Vertex II SSD.
A while ago had my system completely crash (happens), and while restoring it from within ubuntu, i looked at the SSD drive checker - and it showed me that with a read error threshold of 30 i had a read error rate of 128294 or something among those lines (yes, 6 digit number).
After a full secure erase and restore of the system, everything worked fine until earlier today when i got a BLACK screen (as in, monitor cant find any signal) - sound continued. Nothing responded, and PC auto rebooted after a while.
Random glitch? happens i guess
Pc back online... and ~2-3 minutes in i get exactly the same thing. First everything freezes, then screen goes black and nothing responds.
I thought at first that it was a graphic card issue (sound was active?) - however it seems like if i do something with black screen, sound doesnt update (crude example: you can hear background music that was playing before crash, but you cant produce any new sounds). Also updating GPU drivers did not solve anything.
A few resets later, it stopped even giving a black screen - just a full screen freeze. Which leads me to believe its something to do with perhaps corrupt data?
Remembering the "fun" values of my SSD, i ran another test, with this result:
I can get myself a new SSD, however im not sure it will fix it, and i dont want to just throw the money away.
What is your opinion? Is this an SSD issue, or should i look into something else?
