Check you have the latest firmware for your ssd - There are known ML compatibility issues with some OCZ ssd's with older firmware that result in the behaviour you are seeing.

You didn't post at all on what hardware you have. Put it in your sig.
Just putting i3, 8 GB RAM, WiFI, SSD is too generic. What WiFI card? What i3? What graphics card?
