Dead SSD


Lump

Recommended Posts

So i have had my F60 drive for just over a week now. It had been working totaly fine untill yesterday. I woke the pc up from sleep after about 5-6 sec the mouse froze then i got BSOD (as alot of other ppl have been getting from reading the forum) but now the drive is not being seen in the BIOS. I have also tried it on 2 other PC's i have here and none are seeing the drive. What can i do next from here.

I'm sure a good 10-15%, if not more, of the "failures" that are returned were just fine but needed enhanced installation steps to have them work for the intended purpose. I know I was at least stumped, until I sought help on these forums, for a particular RAID configuration that was very tricky to implement. I could have easily tried that setup first and thought oh great, the drives are DOA.

But anyway, I'm looking at a dead drive now(I think, lol) but it was just a couple months ago I saw a faster and more catastrophic failure from an external HDD so.....Having bought 264-260-128-128-60-32 gig drives so far with only 1 failure, that I think I may have caused anyway, I am not really concerned about the quality of ssds vs hdds....I think ssds will be much more reliable in the long run once the tech is a bit more mature.

Actually the rate is much higher about 40-50 of drives returned test with NTF so we have to assume it was just a glitch or possibly the way the drives were setup; however, I think most of these are related to the system it was being used in, maybe not fully supporting SSD technology, or some other cause. But for the most part I think you have the right idea and a good out look moving forward.
