My SSD broke, literally. Help!


Recommended Posts

I was just surfing the internet when suddenly my Firefox froze, and I couldn't open up task manager to end it. So I thought my computer just froze. I was still able to use the mouse so I just went ahead and reset it by pressing the reset on my case. Upon resetting, it wouldn't boot into Windows 7, said I needed to put in BOOT DISC. I thought maybe some Windows file went corrupt so I'll either repair it or just reformat it. I put in the disc, and it didn't read any hard drive. I only have my 120GB Corsair Force GT, no mechanical drive so this is all I got. I opened up the case and noticed this....




At first, the far left pin was only bent, but it was bent pretty badly. I tried to bend it back but upon trying to plug it back into the SATA cable, it just broke. What the hell happened here so I can prevent it from happening again. It looks like it literally exploded because the whole plastic is destroyed too. Did my PSU or something or motherboard do something to pop it? I didn't hear anything, windows just suddenly stopped working. That's all I know.
