Corsair GS 240GB Problem


Recommended Posts


Having problems with my new ssd. The problem is it will install windows 8 but it takes over an hour, when it is installed it sticks and freezes to a point that it is unusable. I notice when it freezes my HDD light is constantly on.


I have enabled AHCI (it was enabled by default) before I installed it.

Disconnected my other hdds also


Then after a few installs with windows 8 and windows 7 I get the same result

So I thought I will try it in IDE mode in the BIOS, when I did it installed windows 8 in 12 minutes and runs great but the speeds seem a bit low.

Can't understand why it will not work in AHCI.



Maybe i have missed something out

Thanks for any help

Make sure the drive is plugged into a AMD SATA III 6.0Gb/s port.

Secure erase the drive with Parted magic and try to install Windows again via the DVD.
