I put a 120GB Sandisk Plus SSD into my old laptop, and it now has a problem where it spontaneously freezes for about a minute and then operates normally again. No errors appear in the Event Log when this happens. I upgraded (from Windows 7) to Windows 10 and it is still happening. In fact, it is happening much more frequently with Windows 10 than it did with Windows 7. I never had this problem with the original HDD, or with a Samsung Evo SSD, so I’m pretty sure that the Sandisk is the culprit.
I have installed Sandisk Dashboard, and it shows no problems with the SSD. Firmware is up to date.
Hardware is a Compaq C502US computer with Core 2 Duo CPU and Intel 945 Express chipset.
Thank you for solutions and/or troubleshooting help.
