Default 120gb Force - dead?

Hi, have 120gb Force 3 ssd and it seems to have died.

Has been running hapily in my hackintosh till the other day then could get OS to boot, so removed it attached to Mac boor air and ran diskwarrior to see if it could fix things, which it normally does very well.

After doing so i put it back in workstation, but drive could not be found, put back in usb caddy on MBA and it could be found again?

On the usb the drive caddy light keeps flashing, like it is being accessed?

Nothing on workstation.

Was purchased Aug 2011 so still in warranty, who do RTMA it too?

Was purchased in the UK at ebuyer.com


How safe will my data be if the drive can be fixed and is sold as refurbished?

thanks

Does the BIOS detect the SSD drive?

If no, request an RMA to replace the drive.

If the drive is fixed, Corsair will secure erase the drive.

I copied and pasted this and it still tells me to put in a part number?
