Hi Chris, sorry for my english, it is not my native language. In my case i had a problem with a flash memory that storied all information about computer and that also storied information about serial number and etc. When I mention flash memory it is not SSD hard disk. It is something like BIOS in the windows computers. So I needed to restore flash memory. I got it from the same computer and restore information. that is all. But it is not possible if you dont have special programmer. I am absolutely sure your problem dont have any to SSD. you need to check flash bios where stored Serial number. it is on a logic board. I think it is because from time to time power had jump, i think it is electrical problem. Though I can be wrong. Hope it is helpful to you, I am ready to answer any question. Eugene.
