I am a student at Fontys University of Applied Sciences located in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. My field of study is Software Engineering, and I'm currently in my third year. In the first year we worked primarily with C# and the .NET framework. In the second we use a lot of Java and C#. I like to make good looking applications, and I have therefore learned myself WPF, though it is not yet a subject for my study.

I like most science fiction series and books. I am also a huge fan of J.R.R. Tolkien's work, especially The Lord of the Rings.

comment Hard drive has this tendency to just shut off
With crashing you mean that the systems shuts-down on it's own without me holding the power button on a completely (mouse goes too after some time) unresponsive system? Ah well, it it happens again then IT support may deal with it, I just hate to call India for a BitLocker unlock key...

I don't know how else to describe it other that it shut down / became unresponsive (no blinking indicator light, can use apps for limited time until I open stuff the freezes in about a minute). Also I was using the drive before this happened.

Nothing relevant is listed there, just a bunch of crashes of Office due to an update from earlier and a reboot was done afterwards. Also nothing from the previous occurrence. ... After looking a bit closer at the information events there have a few updates of Modern Apps just before the event, but I didn't note the time so I don't know had far off these are. I doubt updates of Modern Apps would cause this.

SMART came back clear and looking at tear-down pictures it doesn't seem to have any cabling for the hard drive, just the regular slot system.

Is this after 5,000 hours of non-continues running time I suppose? Unfortunately it's a Lite On SSD (I've never heard of them before now), and they seems to have an firmware file available for download but I don't know whether it's an update or not. How safe is updating the firmware on an SSD anyway?

The problem with the safe mode solution is that it happens a bit too rarely for it. It was a week and half since the last occurrence. I will try the SMART test.
