    Haven't had it again yet. Maybe if I keep from processing multiple transfers via SATA at the one time it may keep stable.
    Will keep you guys updated.

    Thanks again for the help.

    Back possibly worse than before...

    I bought BF3 Premium two days ago, have been downloading it through Origin.
    All was going okay until last night when Windows 8 decided to start "system maintenance" in the background.

    Froze everything on the PC pretty solid and I couldn't stop the maintenance so I had to force a restart.

    Turned off the PC and gave up.

    Then this morning I started the PC to resume my download and System Maintenance decides it wants to start up again and freeze my PC once again.

    I disabled maintenance as it doesn't seem to do anything other than freeze the system everytime it starts, and ran sfc scan which came up clean. CHKDSK also came up clean.

    Went to resume the download again and I got a bluescreen.

    Decided it might be a good time to create a backup image of the drive and clone it to a Platter HDD to test it the SSD is causing all this drama.

    Downloaded the clone tool fine. Went to install it and *BAM* BSOD again.

    System restarted, tried installing to another drive, another BSOD.

    Very p***ed off with the computer and still none the wiser to what the issue is but it only seems to raise it's head after this blasted windows 8 maintenance starts.

    New upload attached.

    Hi,

    The recent BSOD is caused by your ATI video card. Are you sure you have updated to the latest driver. Please double check by going to the ATI website and see if there's any updated driver available.

    http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx

    I'd also suggest you to do a clean install once again and see if that helps.

    Well, a clean install will most likely resolve the issue again for another week as with every other time.

    The annoying part is that is not fixing the problem, and I still am unaware of what it is.

    Wait, I will ask for help on this thread from our BSOD gurus.

    I did have the latest video card drivers installed (13.1).

    Also I really don't understand why or how my videocard could be causing a blue screen when running a simple utility installation?
    I don't think it's crashed once while gaming....

    I have currently got a clean install on a platter hdd and so far it's okay. As per every other install though it seems to take a week before these issues rear their head.

    For some reason, the NTFS initialization TopLevel IO is failing. It may be the Disc itself, backdated SSD firmware, or any program monitoring the disk.

    Try to find any possible firmware updates of your SanDisk SDSSDX240GG25 at Solid State Drive support information.

    Also let us see the programs you have installed.
    Download and install CCleaner. Then run it.
    Go to "Tools" .... by default it will open the "uninstall" tab.
    Click on save as text file. Save it on your desktop.
    Upload the text file for us.


    Which disc controller you use?
