Probably sold with a HDD and was third party upgraded (or home upgraded) to a SSD.

It was vibration related for sure.

I had a live band I was hoping to record one night, but had to place the FOH near a sub. Needless to say all was fine until the band started playing and the computer essentially went into lock down. The vibration causes the HDD and even SSD drives to stop. This is the fail safe that many computers have now. It senses free fall or excessive vibration and shuts the drives down to protect the disk and the data.

As soon as the band stopped playing the computer I had would act like normal and as soon as they would start again it would go bonkers.

That's an interesting sub deployment. How high was the ceiling? May I ask, what subs are they?

Look like EAW SB1000.

This is why I prefer dedicated, purpose-designed gear in mission-critical positions. Open, flexible, multi-purpose platforms by nature offer unforeseen misfire possibilities.

Regardless of the gear, you have to check it and test it.  Rehearse the show/setup.  Once your system can be trusted to be infalible, still "Have a Plan B."

A general purpose platform like a PC/Mac can be great.  If you need it to work you need to dedicate it to the role.  It can't be your random-web-downloads box; don't upgrade anything on it until you are sure of continued compatability.  The next OS upgrade might be a cool thing to have, but if your software stops working or behaves differently, you're screwed.
