Trying to figure out SSD problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So Im pretty sure my SSD went bad/kaput. Im trying to figure out what caused it to go bad, and of course to make sure it really is bad.

Was running fine. Turned my PC off, went played on the PS3 for an hour, came back and my PC wouldn't start Windows. Lots of testing and failed trouble shooting later, and I ended up simply installing Windows onto my second HDD.

From the new installation of windows, I can browse to my SSD partition and it looks fine. I copied a few files from it - all seems well. Downloaded and ran CrystalDiskInfo 4.0.2 and for the SSD says "Unknown" across the board

Then I opened up command prompt, and ran chkdsk with /f /b /x flags. After two days, it failed with an error (726166696c652e63 1ed).

Attached are screenshots of CrystalDiskInfo & the last bits from chkdsk.

It would be nice if you filled out your system info so we'd know what SSD you are using with what motherboard.

I'd make sure you have the latest intel drivers, and latest firmware for the SSD, as well as your bios up to date on your motherboard.

From the looks of it yes you may have a bad SSD, as weird as it sounds i got the issue before when it was on a bad Sata cable too.

Just a few ideas.
