Nico_P Posted November 29, 2010 Share Posted November 29, 2010 Hi Last week I bought a Corsair CMFSSD-256D1 but whenever I installed Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit the installation corrupts after some hours of usage. My Win7 installation worked flawlessly wednesday evening with everything going alot faster then my old 7200 rpm disk but then thursday morning my computer was not able to find the SSD any longer and giving me an error could not read from hdd0 error. I powered down the computer after the error and were off to work. In the evening I powered on the computer again and now it could atleast locate my disk, but the win 7 installation had corrupted and the system restore could not get it up running, so reinstalled win7 again. Again the installation worked fine for some hours, but after a reboot some hours later the installation had corrupted again, and had to reinstall win7 again. Saturday I managed to secure erase the disk in Parted Magic. I also checked the SMART state from my other computer with Crystaldisk Info and the disk seemed to be in a good state. The firmware is version 2.1 so updating the firmware was not an option either. Late saturday I reinstalled win 7 again but with same results this morning. I ran a memtest during the night and after 4 passes throu the night there was no errors found. The computer is a Lenovo W500 with a Intel Core2 CPU and 4 GB DDR3 memory. During all of my win 7 installations I checked the command "fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify" to see if TRIM was enabled and everytime the result was 0 (Enabled) Also tried with and without the win 7 tweaks from http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=82516 with the same results - a corrupt windows 7 installation. Before I installed the SSD there was no errors with my SATA 7200 RPM disk and the windows installations have all been fully updated with latest drivers from lenovo and all windows updates. To me it seems the SSD needs to be RMAed, but is there any possibilities I have not tried during my error searching?
