Corsair F120 With Toshiba R630-105 error

Recommended Posts

Hi, i just buy F120 Corsair SSD drives to my toshiba notebook. But it doen't work with my notebook at most times. i can't see drive in bios page most times. But some times it shown in bios and system normal boots everthing fine working perfectly. I use windows 7 enterprise edition. so i think that my ssd drive is fault and test the ssd drive in my friend's hp notebook. In hp everything normal and ssd performs perfectly. I also contact with Toshiba but they said i have to upgrade my ssd firmware.

 

Is there anyone has same issue or advice to solve problem?

Sounds like the regular BSOD problem everyone else is having. When it doesn't detect in BIOS, did it blue screen before that?

 

You should disable TRIM, disable sleep and shutdown your computer when its not in use and wait for the new firmware release.

Hello Machka,

 

I am happy to hear there is anyone out there having EXACTLY the same problem like me. The notebook (Also a Toshiba R630) is running fine with ervery other hard drive except of the Corsair F120.

 

In approximately 19 of 20 boots the SSD is not detected by the bios. It is like not existent. If this is the case I can not access the drive from any OS (for example from Ubuntu booted from a USB-Stick). Setting SATA mode from AHCI to IDE, changing boot order or any other options within the bios is making no difference.

 

If the F120 is detected by the bios everything is working as it should, over hours (Tested with Windows 7 Ultimate and Ubuntu 10.04). No BSODs or other errors.

 

You can imagine what torture this is? Only the installation of Windwos 7 needs 2 restarts..this means in worst case around 40 reboots.. :-)

 

@Corsair

Is it possible to do anything for us? A firmware update will be the only chance I think.. :-( And that with such an expensive drive!

 

Best regards,

There is No update for the Reactor series drives at this time, But the Force series has a firmware that was just released at the top of this section under firmware update. I would check with the MB maker of your system for the latest BIOS and see if that helps if not then please test the drive on another system.

Hello RAM GUY,

 

thanks for your quick answer. The Firmware is already the newest (Version 1.1) and same with the bios (also tried older versions, same issue). I have tested the drive in other systems, here the drive was detected most of the time.

 

But it could not be a problem of the system because I have tested 9 (!) other drives of other manufacturers and types (also other SSD), all working properly. So it must be a problem with the F120.

We are working on the next release, and it could be an issue with the BIOS OEM systems are NOT quick to do BIOS updates. But we can hope the next firmware may help that issue.

I would only suggest using our Performance Series SSD's with any OEM system by the way.

Is there any Release Date you can give to us? It is really necessary because the SSD is not usable for the moment...so Corsair should release it really quick.

Unfortunately no, we have no release date. We will release it as soon as we get it from SandForce.

i just test my drive in some other notebooks and desktops but there are no any fails in hp, dell or my desktop computer i think that the problem caused by toshiba bios. so i write a topic on toshiba support forum to get help because portege 700 series has same motherboard with my notebook. and portege series comes with ssd drives without any problem. so i get confused about is the problem related to my ssd or my notebook. so i will but a ocs vertex ssd to test my notebook. because the toshiba notebook really fine so i no need to change it. i am looking for a bios or firmware updates to solve problem. i think that problem is not related to trim support because some times it works great, without any problem.

The BSOD issue occurs for some configurations and not in others. The drive itself is not completely faulty so of course there is going to be system-to-system variance with regards to stability.

 

In most likelihood, it is still the drive that is causing the problem, we are waiting for the next firmware release.

 

PS: you never answered my question, when the drive disappears from the BIOS, what was happening before that occured? Did you get a BSOD/Crash, was the computer sleeping, hibernating, or turned off?, etc give us details and we can help figure out if you are truly seeing the sandforce issue that the rest of us are having.

Its working randomly there no any reasson to happen. for example when i start working at morning i just push power button to open my notebook but it fails to boot from ssd drive. so i restart to chek bios and in bios screen my ssd drive isn't listed. then i press power button to close system and start it again. it ramdomly working normaly but some times i have to try this procedure 4-5 times may be more... Also when computer sleeps, i just push any key to wake up it, but while waking up a blue screen appears and "boot drive isn't accessible" message comes and reboots computer. then i start to opening procedure again.
