Can an SSD go bad?

Starting to think many of my blue screen errors are from a failing ssd, although disk check and other diagnostics are coming back fine, nothing else seems to be making sense.

Could my SSd be starting act finicky? i'm perfectly fine with throwing it aside and using my backup HD until i get a new one.. just as long as the blue screens go away.

ran memtest, its not the ram.

All drivers have been updated, re updates, etc.

Its not the board.

Its not the vidoecard or the PSU.

that more or less leaves the hard drives, as my errors are drivers from:

ntoskrnl.exe

Have you done a clean reinstall of Windows yet?

I've re installed windows probably like 4 or 5 times in the past couple days trying to fix it.

New error ( just happened a few minutes ago ) :

KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

I don't see where you checked for a firmware update for the SSD itself.

I have the current firmware update.

What has me confused is, it typically will give me different errors ( although not always ) AND they happen randomly, usually when im not doing much.

Honestly, if you think it isn't anything else and your drivers are up to date, then use your backup as your main windows and get rid of the SSD for a while... maybe it IS the SSD, but who knows, if they are random blue screen errors it could be.

So how did you determine it's not the GPU or CPU?

Yes, SSDs can go bad, but it doesn't sound like you did a good job of making sure it's the SSD.

Ok, how would I determine if it's a failing CPU or gpu?
