SSD Troubles

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, long time lurker, first time poster

I came back to my computer a couple hours ago, and when I returned I had a screen saying "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISC" there was an incident before when the sata cable actually popped out of my SSD and all I had to do was plug it back in. I figured it would be the same thing again, but apparently not.

I plugged it back in and it booted into windows fine, all my stuff came up and everything but when i tried to do something, like open firefox it was SLOW AS HELL. Eventually after opening firefox I just let it sit, as it was sort of frozen, it eventually gave me a blue screen saying something like, windows has had an error and must close, there was a bunch of other stuff but it only appeared for like 2 seconds, then tried to reboot itself.

I've taken the sata cable out and replugged it, and when it boots it'll show my SSD being recognized, but then sometimes it wont (it always shows my other HD). Is my SSD like on it's death bed about ready to die? Comptuer is barely like 6-7 months old, halp!


Also, I'd also like to point out it ran disk check when I booted it up earlier in the day, didn't have any problems then, and I dont remember if it found any errors but it ran the check and booted up normally without any problems. Now i've been trying to get it to disk check but since it wont detect my ssd every other boot I can't get it to even doing the scheduling thing.

Edit: Just installed that SSD life program from the "SSD Dying" thread a couple scrolls down, according to it my SSD's health is 100% and should last till 2020.

Guess I should just format and reinstall windows? Just my luck my oem windows disc is a 12 hour drive away at my dads Any second thoughts?

Howdy and welcome to OCN! Have you tried plugging the SATA cable into another port on your motherboard and/or using another SATA cable with your SSD? That's where I would check first. If you have another computer handy, you can plug the SSD in to it (via the SATA port) but don't boot off of it. That way you can run all your diagnostics on it (and see if the other computer recognizes it every time), OR you could try booting off a LIVE CD and using tools from that to check your SSD.

Also, if you have the time, it would really help us out if you could click on "User CP" at the top of the page, and then on the left click "Add System" and fill out your computer's specs.

If what I mentioned above does not help, or you find a crapload of errors, then yes a format and reinstall windows would be recommended.

Hey, thanks

I swapped SATA cables, but the same thing happened, comp boots up fine but after 1-2 min of going perfectly normal it slows to a crawl, freezes up, blue screen, reboots and the SSD is no longer being shown.

And no, I don't have any other computers, just 2 other laptops with no sata connections.

What is a LIVE cd? Is that the windows CD? If so, I moved recently and had to leave some stuff behind for now, which includes my windows cd.

I filled out my system information, I did it really quickly as I was switching out SATA cables, if I missed anything let me know.

dunno what else to do besides having my dad mail me my windows box :/

The thing that confuses me is, when the mobo is checking devices and my opt drive, and storage drive are being shown, but my SSD isnt, I dont understand how a reformat or windows would help? since technically windows hasen't even come into play? (I'm probably horribly wrong about this or something, but it's just what's in my mind)

Ok, did you try using a different SATA port on the motherboard? It's possible that when the cable "fell out" and was plugged back in, that it damaged either the SSD, or the SATA port (or possibly both!)

If you had some extra $$ to spend, you could always get a HDD adapter like this one -

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-017-_-Product

That way you could plug your SSD into your USB port on one of the laptops.

A LIVE CD is NOT the Windows CD. Google can really help you with this one. LIVE CD is basically a version of Linux that boots off the CD (you download it and burn it to a CD or DVD, depending on which one you get - there are TONS of them out there!)

When you get a Blue Screen, what error code pops up? That will really tell us what is going on here.

I gotta run for now, but I'll check back in either tomarrow night, or some time Monday and see where you're at. Hopefully this problem is solved by the time I come back.

Yea, I tried both a different SATA cable, and a different SATA port, still same problem.

I'll look more into the live CD tomorrow.

I have no idea what error code I get at the blue screen, the thing pops up for literally 2 seconds at most then goes away, anything I can do to prolong it, so that i can read more then one line, hehe

With automatic restarts off, it should stay up for longer. I know there are programs out there that can read your dump files and tell you what the error code was and what that program thinks is causing it, but I can't name any off the top of my head.

Ok, So I turned off auto-restart and go the BSOD error codes:

STOP: 0X000000F4 (0X0000000000000003, 0XFFFFFA8006FB7370, 0XFFFFFA8006FB7650, 0XFFFFF800003389F40)

Also, it was previously letting me boot into windows for a couple minutes, then eventually freeze and BSOD, now it seems to be getting stuck at Verifying DMI pool data..

Seems to no longer be doing the above, just doing what it always has been.

I've been sittin here for about an hour googeling those BSOD codes, but all i'm really getting is threads that are years old that i'm not sure would be my problem, or they have the first error code (the F4 one) but the ones after after not all the same.

Any help would be appreciated
