did you open the case to connect up the SSD..
I just recently got a SSD that I was going to install instead of my 7200 rpm WD HDD. I have ran into so many problems. I tried to format my WD HDD and it got to 2% and the screen went blank.
tell us everything you did...if you leave out anything it may keep us from figuring out what went wrong

The problem was that one of my video cards (I have 2) was bad. I took the top one out and put the bottom one in the main slot and it stopped going blank.
I think my graphix card is still under warranty so it should be a free fix.
Thanks for your time.

move your documents folder to the hard drive
create a new downloads folder on the hard drive and set all your browsers to download to it
Disabling the page file or Moving the page file from your SSD to a storage hard drive
turn off Hibernation SuperFetch and Defrag
You can disable hibernate by running the command from the Command Prompt:
powercfg /hibernate off
Make sure that TRIM is enabled
if you've already migrated to an SSD, you might not have realized that you're sacrificing performance with misaligned partitions. A regular hard drive usually starts its first partition after 63 empty blocks, while SSDs require 64 blocks of data for optimal performance. This means that sometimes, if your SSD was formatted by something other than Windows' installer, it can be aligned incorrectly and will transfer data much slower than intended
To see if your partitions are aligned correctly, hit the Start menu and type in msinfo32. Enter Msinfo32 and go to Components ... Storage ... Disks. Look for your SSD on the list and find the "Partition Starting Offset" item. If this number is divisible by 4096 (that is, if dividing it by 4096 equals a whole number and not a decimal), your partition is correctly aligned. If not, you need to realign it.
you can't assume windows did it right...it only did 3 out of 4 SSD's on my system
