120GB Force 3 (Sudden Power State Change)


Recommended Posts

Hey All,


I'm wondering if this is a SSD problem. I did a quick scan via search and either overlooked or didn't find any information regarding this crash.


I was surfing the web a few minutes ago and my screen went completely blank and my monitor reported that it had lost a signal. My speakers also made the "power down popping sound". It seemed like the computer just suddenly went to sleep (fans still running and lights ons) and the only way to wake it up was to reboot the computer.


The only error in the logs that I could find was ...


The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.


Proc: AMD 3.4GHz (OC to 4.0GHz)

RAM: 8GB DDR2 1066

VID: eVGA 560ti (OC'd)

MB: Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H

SSD: Corsair 120GB Force 3 w/ the latest Firmware.

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate


Anyone else have a problem like this? I don't want to immediately indict the SSD when this could be a video / PSU / OS issue.

Nope, the computer booted just fine after I power cycled it and the SSD was listed and available. Good point. I'll start to investigate the other components that I listed and maybe tweak my OC.


Thanks again!
