P128 Corrupt Boot Config Data


Recommended Posts

Sorry for the long story but I figure it may help knowing:


I've had the Corsair P128 SSD for 2 or 3 months and have been loving it.


This morning I booted up the computer and before the OS selection screen came up (at my motherboard screen) the video monitor had artifacts all over the screen. I booted into Win 7 which is on the SSD and it came up fine but with the same artifacts.


The video card seems to be bad. I tried the card in another system and the same artifacts appeared. I put an older video card I had in the SSD system and it worked fine, no artifacts.


Problem is the SSD won't boot to Win 7 now. I tried the Win 7 install disk to repair it but it doesn't fix the problem. The drive shows up in the repair list but states 0MB. I tried using the Command prompt: BCDBOOT but it's not recognizing a partition drive letter assignment. I booted into Vista and the drive doesn't show in My Computer. I checked the hard drive list in the bios but it does show there. I'm not sure what to try next.


I've got critical work related data on that drive and I hope that someone may know a fix to get the drive up and running.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
