Default two reinstalls in a week - no partition table - 01-16-2011, 06:50 AM

Hello, in a period of one week I had to reinstall my mini 9 twice.
The mini was working fine and on the next day it couldn`t boot. No operating system found. When I put the install USB it finds no formatted disk, the disk utility sees the disk unformated. Linux live distros don`t see any partitions on disk.
The first time this happened when I upgraded to 10.6.6 and went to app store. I installed SketchBook Express. On the next day I didn't succeed to boot.
The second time I again upgraded to 10.6.6. Installed SketchBook Express from the store, restarted few times and it seemed to work. Yesterday I installed some other thinks which seems to be not so safety - SoundFlower for recording streaming audio. I tested it with Audacity and on the next day could`t boot again
The disk utility doesn't find any problems on the SSD and shows it as verified.
The battery is not OK - lasts 1 hr and shows Service Battery.
Please advice.

2 Dell Mini 9, 16 GB SSD, 1 GB RAM, Mac OS X 10.6.6
