V64 bsod (api-index-mismatch)


l2ob

Recommended Posts

im a SSD n00b so go easy on me here.

 

got my new Nova 64Gb in the mail today. got Vista 64bit installed with latest drivers and the whole 9 yards.

 

playing around with the new snappy system and BAMM... BSOD. it said "API-INDEX-MISMATCH".

 

so im like, ok? ive never seen that error before. rebooted and windows wouldn't load. it was like as if i had no boot drive installed. so i went into the bios and the V64 wasn't in there anymore. my storage drive and CD/DVD rom were picked up by the bios, but the V64 wasn't to be found. i tried rebooting a few times to no success.

 

finally i killed the power to my system via the kill switch on the back of my power supply waited about 10 sec, powered up the system and all was normal?

 

is this common of faulty drives? should i RMA?

 

is there any test i can run to check the stability of the drive?

 

 

thanks for any help.

 

edit.....

 

i did a AS SSD benchmark and this was the result:

is it just me? or are my read speeds about 30% lower than they should be? :mad:

 

i expected the advertised speed to be a tad higher than what i would see in the real world... but not by that much. is my drive messed up?

The advertised spec for the Nova 64 are 215 MB/s sequential read and 130 MB/s sequential write so you about right on par in ATTO. You will loose a little performance because of O.S. overhead so what you posted is about right. But when you set the drive up how did you partition and format the drive? And what O.S. are you using? When you installed the NVidia Driver did you install the IDE Driver? If so run the setup again and uninstall it. Just the IDE portion.

oh. well newegg has it listed at 275/130.

 

had i know that i would have bout a different drive...

 

anyway

 

the 15.50 driver im referring to is the mother board package driver that comes from Evga for the nvidia drivers for my mobo.

 

 

it doesn't have a Intel chipset.

 

i do have AHCI enabled in the bios.

 

i created a new partion in Vista when i installed the OS. it doesn't give you a choice at that point but i assume its is NTFS

 

 

i will try uninstalling the IDE driver. if its in there, idk for sure.

If you're using AHCI then it is not an IDE driver it is AHCI driver..I understand you don't have an intel chipset but what is your soutbridge? what is your sata controller?

 

You can most likely use the msahci (microsoft) driver which actually performs better than the AMD driver most of the time and possibly better than what you're using (nforce driver?).

 

I don't have much experience with nforce but you may have an intel southbridge like ICH07R then you'd be able to use the Intel RST driver.

 

To see what driver you're using on your sata controller go to device manager, then check under IDE/ATAPI controllers or Storage controllers.

well i guess ill RMA this drive and go with a different brand since the support here is... not so great. from browsing this forum it seems like this is one of those companies that is great untill you have a problem.

 

best of luck to you corsair.

On the nForce SATA controller you need to check the drivers that it's using..msahci or nforce.
