Please advise. I would like to know how others have dealt w/ this situation. Do we call Microsoft or SSD company for support?

Same applies to HDD if it stops working. Get a new drive and install OS on that one. Send in failed drive to manufacturer. The OS has nothing to do with hardware failing to operate.

You just buy a new drive and reinstall the OS.

I have a friend that puts them in RAID 1 (somewhat expensive and inefficient solution), this way he can just trade a fried SSD for a good one if needed. But if you don't have that, you'd probably need to find you OS key and reinstall after getting the SSD replaced. Honestly, though, I'd sooner just use a Sandisk ReadyCache drive.
