In September 2009 I bought a Crucial M225 128GB 2.5" SATA-II SSD. I have been running Windows 7 64 bits in the SSD disk for two years.

Last week I began to get some errors. chkdsk was delivering some errors at boot time but it seemed able to recover. But after a couple of days with these weird errors I got a blue screen in Windows during startup just after the Windows Logo is loaded. Windows blue screen show a STOP error 0x00000050 (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA).

It seems I was suffering the same problem as described in the Super Site question Getting a Stop error on vista boot page fault in nonpaged area question

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA Blue Screen error

I checked if it was a RAM Issue.

  • Run a memory test using the diagnostic tool - passed
  • Run a memtest86+ and I did not get any memory errors.

So, I thought my only chance was to reinstall Windows 7. I backed up important files and reinstalled the OS. Everything run fine for the first 24 hours but after a couple of boots I began getting errors. I run chkdsk in my SSD disk with the repair option and I got several errors:

chkdsk errors

It is safe to assume that there is no other solution than replacing the SSD disk because it is going to keep failing?

FYI, "SSD" is an abbreviation of "Solid State Disk", so "SSD disk" or even "SSD hard disk" do not make sense. – Lekensteyn Dec 5 '11 at 20:22

(This is only an answer to the first part of the question)

This is apparently an error generated by a USB device
