    System crash/hang - NVME inode orphaned - troubleshooting tips?

    My Dell 9560 crashes/hangs on average once/day. Either a system message like the attached happens, or sometimes Gnome just becomes unresponsive. I've tried various things like ensuring OS is updated, Dell boot diagnostics, memory checks, temperature monitoring, etc. I'm convinced the problem is with the Samsung SSD drive. Looking for any advice and in particular any tips on how I can setup logging to run this problem down. The Samsung PM961 is not compatible with the standard disk diagnostics so looking for advice on this point also.
    Edit: a little more background. This is a 2year old Dell 9560. When purchased it came with Win10. First thing I did was blow away Windows, and install Ubuntu.

    OS Ubuntu 16.04 64bit
    Dell XPS-15 9560
    Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz × 8

    Graphics GeForce GTX 1050/PCIe/SSE2
    Mem 32Gb
    Drive Dell 400-APWJ, SSDR, 1TB, P34, 80S3, SAMSUNG, PM961
