Try a different SATA port.

Reset the BIOS to defaults by shorting the pins or by removing the CMOS battery. (If you have enabled AHCI, Check the BIOS if you need to change it back from IDE to AHCI).

Run a ATTO benchmark and post a screenshot.

I presume you cold booted since you un-installed Avast.


In that case, re-install it.


I think it is a problem that only strikes with certain processors with the right version of Windows.


And, it may have only been something corrupted about that virus update.


But others had the problem too and removal cured it -- so it was worth a shot.


I just unistalled avast from my computer but nothing have change.


any others solutions ?

yep, I did what you said !


-I changed the SATA port,

-reset the BIOS by removing the CMOS battery

-Go to AHCI mode


and now a screenshot of my SSD thanks to ATTO benchmark :




for the moment nothing have change.


(may be that strikes some certain processors, but it's boring, I just hope this problem will be solved !)

I re-installed Avast Internet Security this morning and the latest download seems to be working fine.


Good luck with your SSD. When it works it's great.




Update ... I thought it was ok but after several hours it suddenly began freezing again.

So I un-installed it again and this morning I put the AVG Free version to see if it freezes too.

So far so good but only a couple of hours.

after few days,


I tried a lot of things but nothing have worked.


Now I think, I'm going to do a secure erase on my SSD and go back to a HDD classic.


I read on the web that other SSD have the same problem, after few months they begin to freeze.


the profitability of a SSD is bad, if I knew that, I didn't buy it !


I appreciated your help ! good luck for everybody !
