Default bad ssd

i bought a corsair ssd drive back in feb from ncix..installed the drive and did a arcronis image of my other os drive and it worked fine..untill pc boots shows the drives in the bios but when it goes to load the vista it gives me missing bootmgr or a error screen..i tried to boot of the vista cd rom but i get a blue screen of deathe..i was told to unplugg the ssd and try booting off the vista cd rom to see if that would work and sure enough it did which can allow me to install the os on a sata drive..can a ssd drive go bad or get corrupted?i have taken the pc to a local friends pc shop to test and to see if i am right..if the ssd drive is defective can i get it rma'ed or any other suggestions i can try first

thank u

I would try and format the Drive and od a fresh install and see what happens.
If you still have problems we can get it or them replaced, please use the RMA request found in TSXpress or follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!
