    That's why I told him to look in Event Viewer and tell more about his pc locking up. The first few results on google about his SSD from user reviews also suggest that his SSD is more likely to fail compared to other brands.

    I should update this but all my effort went into writing this lousy excuse.

    It is a Crucial M500 aka the shit of the brand name SSD world. (Note: Shitty brand name SSD still trumps chinese SSD & HDD.) So I wouldn't actually be surprised if it failed on him. I actually had to replace two M500's in a couple of friend's computers because of bad sectors.

    When mine was locking up without BSODs it ended up being the GPU. Installing different drivers fixed that. Just my 2 cents.

    I'm going to laugh if it's a psu error. He wanted to be cheap on as many parts as needed, especially the ones that only was for powering up the needed "gaming" stuff.
