Default Corsair LE 120 GB update firmware fail

I particularly have a problem with the firmware update my Corsair LE 120 GB. Currently I have got the firmware and application SAFC12.1 Corsair SSD ToolBox detects that an update: SAFC12.2, but when you try to update I get the message "The firmware update failed".

Does anyone know why or how I can fix it?







AHCI mode is enabled on the motherboard, which is a M4N68T-M LE ASUS V2. I want to upgrade because on some occasions, the computer hangs during startup, and then the error message: DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION

This error can be caused by drivers from the SSD, it is quite normal, and they said they can be solved by updating the firmware, but I described throws the error before trying.

I need a solution.

When did the BSOD start?

If it was fairly recent, then it may be a software update, Windows update, Driver update, etc.

If you are using AMD AHCI drivers, try the Microsoft drivers and see if that helps (MSAHCI)

Since I installed it. BSOD does not always, just sometimes, but annoying. In the device manager tells me that I am using Microsoft drivers. My motherboard is an ASUS M4N68T-M LE ASUS V2 and have Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. I think the chipset is NVIDIA.

Do you have another computer that you can use to update the firmware?

The Nvidia chipset is most likely unsupported.

I'll see if I can upgrade from another computer. The BSOD problem solved what was a problem with the nvstor driver, or something. The BSOD happens when I have connected the DVD recorder SATA, in fact, to connect the SSD's not detect my recorder. Now I have working with four discs plus SSD (without recorder) and goes well. I also want to update the firmware and I can not, I get the same error.

I want to know: in principle, the firmware update should not cause any problems to my files not? that is, if it goes well the system should have and everything I have (like I will backup).

No, A firmware update will not format the drive. If it does, it should be mentioned beforehand.

That said, it's always best to keep a backup of your data regularly. So i would recommend you backup your data.
