Is my SSD dead?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi I have a Corsair F40 SSD used only as a boot drive and for some reason it doesn't load the OS no more. It gets stuck at the blue loading windows screen, the blue ring just keeps spinning and doesn't bring up the desktop. I tried rebooting it 4 times, tried safe mode and its the same problem. The last thing I did was uninstall the Nvidia 3D Vision driver as I don't even use it.

So is my SSD finally dead? I've perfectly used it for 13 months and bought it brand new.

Is there anything else i can do before starting over again? Its such a pain to reconfigure an SSD unlike the regular drives.

Pop in the disk and try a repair, see what happens.

Startup Repair could not find a problem... Ok I'm starting to regret uninstalling the driver.

Should I bother sending this back for warranty work or just bin it and get a new SSD?

Im pretty sure thats not dead but your windows install may be corrupt or something.
If SSD was dead id expect BSOD or nothing loading at all.

Try a fresh windows install before you deem it dead.

It looks like this is my last option before doing anything that cost $.

I manage to reinstall Windows, install every programs/games and the typical ssd optimization in 6 hours. The only upside to this was I manage to do a proper OS installation by installing the ahci/chipset driver first so my ssd speed went up. Everything works well now and I hope my ssd doesn't go rogue on me again.
