Finally my X240 and Samsung 840 pro are working fine. With the 06 firwmare no freezes, reboots or blue screens. Halelujah that it takes only 5 months to get this fixed.... )) Maybe i will read forums next time before buying of best portable nb and then best SSD.

This issue is solved by firmware update from Samsung, which can be downloaded and installed by running the Samsung Magician Software.
Please contact Samsung with any questions about how to update drive firmware.

I have the exact same problem (TPY, Samsung 840 Pro), everything went fine, then black screen with blue box and boot menu, no booting windows 8.1.
Did you solve your problem? And if yes, what was the solution?
Thanks very much in advance!!!

> I haven't been able to get any firmware updates to work yet because magician tells me it is unable to detect any SSD drive in the system. Anyone had this problem?
Yes, I had. The SSD was not able in Acronis Disk Director and HDD Raw Copy Tool.
I formatted it through HDD Raw Copy Tool for Lynux (100% works) or through DOS version of Acronis Disk Director (1 ssd of 2 was not able)

I am buying a Lenovo tested and complete solution. The Samsung SSD that I have comes with the machine and is a factory part. I've not fitted this myself.
The SSD drive that ships is:
Lenovo PN: 0C41122
I cannot for the life of me perform a firmware upgrade. This drive has firmware DXT02L5Q
I have tried updating via magician and also via the drive firmware package on the Lenovo downloads section.
Neither are able to update the firmware.
On an aside. I called Lenovo tech support again yesterday and now they are telling me there is finally a "known issue" with these drives and data corruption.. The solution was to complete a BIOS update and the engineer told me the drive firmware has nothing to do with fixing this problem! I don't know whether or not to believe him.
