Force F120 dead - RMA question

Hi

I own a Corsair Force F120 SSD.

I bought it about one year ago and I am using it in my notebook.

 

About one week ago I tried to boot my notebook (Linux Mint 12 x64) but the BIOS could not find any OS. After some investigation I found out that the SSD was OK, only the partition table was gone - so all partitions were lost.

There was no valueable data on it. I created a new partition and reinstalled my OS. Everything worked fine again.

 

When I wanted to start the notebook today, the BIOS tried to access the SSD for about 5 minutes and the I recieved the message "Operating system not found".

I connected the SSD to my PC. The only reaction were some SATA-errors in the Linux "dmesg" output.

(I am sure that this error is not caused by the SATA cable)

 

So, is the SSD dead and is this an RMA case?

 

If this is an RMA case:

I bought the SSD from amazon.de (I am in Europe) - should i return the SSD to Amazon or schould I use the Corsair RMA?

If I use the Corsair RMA, do I have to send the SSD to USA or is there an RMA center in Europe?

 

Thank you for your help.
