Thanks Richard, but win7's disk management had no trouble formatting it.

And thanks for the thoughts Serville; I didn't know that an SSD controller may compress the data. I found that...

OK, so the SMART reports might be ~50% off? (given 64/115) That seems a tad inaccurate... I was guessing it had something to do with how data is "written" or stored in flash drives - the "blocks"...

Thank you, I'll look into them, as it sounds a bit better.

Where I'm at now is I am concerned about SandForce controllers (the likely reason why my drive is unresponsive), and while Intel...

Thanks,

but this makes me question my choice of an SSD. With an HDD you usually get a warning - obvious performance issues related to moving parts and/or their noises - but with no moving parts...

SSD disappeared from BIOS

Hi,

I built a (very nice) new system last April (2011), which uses a Corsair F115GB SSD for the OS and a HDD for data. Frankly the whole system's been virtually flawless for ALMOST a year -...

After further testing and researching I've come to the conclusion that the issue is AMD's Athlon XP 3200+. I don't think there is anything wrong with this specific processor, meaning it has not...

I have always heard good things about Corsair and thought folks held them in high regard, so it is strange that nVidia didn't get Corsair on their compatability list for the nForce2 400 chipset. I...

Not another system, but I do have another AN35N Ultra 400 mobo that I could swap in - I also have the old Corsair VS memory (2x512MB DIMMs) that I could swap in and try running at 200Mhz FSB (but I...

So I tested the DIMMs individually as requested, in both memory channels (1/2 and 3) and got mixed results. I began to think that they were both not going to work, which usually indicates a problem...

The processor's tag has AXDA3200DKV4E, which indicates it is a 3200+ Barton Core (2200MHz model). Could the tag be a fake? I guess someone could glue the tag on a 2500+, but then why would the BIOS...

Ah, so the CMX1024-3200 DIMMs are not matched eh? Shame, but maybe I should run them in slots 1&2 so they are on the same memory controller and not running "dual channel". I've read its a 5%...

Thanks for that, and I am guessing that my "CMX1024-3200" DIMMs are not the same thing as "TWINX2048-3200C2". Maybe my DIMMs are not a matched pair and I should only run them in slots 1&2? Strange...

AN35N Ultra FSB speed affects XMS3200?

I my mobo is running the latest BIOS and the latest hardware drivers (nVidia nForce2 400 chipset drivers, etc.). WinXP is fully updated, and the system worked adequately with the Corsair VS...
