Force 3 120 GB drive dead in 5 months

Recommended Posts

I woke up my gaming rig this morning and got a blue screen:




Upon resume, my computer is no more. I put it to sleep last night and I guess now it'll never wake up. Windows install/repair detects no hard drives, and my BIOS detects nothing.


Restart of my computer says no drive detected.


I purchased this drive on 10/27/2011 from Newegg. Needless to say, I'm not pleased.


I had updated it to the latest firmware which I believe was 1.3.3, and did occasionally still get the "freeze" problem (everything would pause for about a minute, then all actions in Windows would act out in the sequence they were clicked during the freeze), but I learned to live with it.


I tried putting in my USB key with Corsair utilities on it, hoping to at least see the drive and try to do something with it, but that didn't work either.


So...disappointed customer here.


System specs:

Asus M4A88T-M LE mobo

AMD Phenom II X4 955 black edition 3.2Ghz cpu

EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti
