    I have begun experiencing random shutdown with my system. I recently re-built my first build adding an SSD, new motherboard, graphics card and memory. here is the system configuration:
    ASUS P8Z68-V PRO
    Intel Core i7 2600K
    Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
    16.0 GB Dual-Channel DDR3
    GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1gb
    Samsung SH-S223F DVD Writer
    120 GB Patriot Wildfire SSD (boot drive)
    1T Samg 7K 32M SATA2 and
    300 GB Western Digital WDC WD3000HLFS-01G6U0
    PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 Quad 750W PSU
    Cosmos Cooler Master Case
    Samsung Syncmaster 2333
    Windows 7 Pro 64-bit SP1
    I ran the SF Dx tool and included screen shots of CPU-Z tabs and CBS.log filtered for just the SR (system restore) points from the sfc /scannow. Included all files in the zipped Seven Forum folder attached.
    Here are the issues:
    random shutdowns-periodically I will return to my computer and find a screen asking for a boot drive. hitting space will not work. i have to shut down using the power on button.
    Usually it boot into windows after the first time. Occasionally I have to power on and off a couple of times.
    screen bland for 10 to 20 seconds. Occasionally while switching between applications using Alt-Tab the screen will go blank for up to 20 seconds. It recovers on its own with a message saying my GPU shut down and was restarted.
    I have never actually seen a BSOD (am I in the wrong forum?) but would like to fix these problems.
    For a time I thought these were problems with my SSD and GPU but when I ran sfc and saw the number of files that weren't repaired I started having concerns. Oh and by the way I have run a variety of diagnostics on the SSD and GPU and nothing was revealed.
    Any thoughts?
    Next steps?

    We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's recently. Here's the information that I've compiled:
    A lot of STOP 0x117 BSOD's listed in MSINFO32. Please follow this troubleshooting guide (STOP 0x116 and 0x117 use the same instructions): STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting - Windows 7 Forums

    This error in sfc.exe concerns me:
    It's a core Windows file and may be causing problems. So, let's fix the SSD issues as much as we can, then fix the video issues as much as we can - then we'll work on the above error (I suspect issues with the SSD may be preventing the repair - but am unsure).
