Do a fresh install. I wouldn't copy everything over LOL.

LOL I did the freshest install you've ever seen.


I always do! I'm not that noob!

I've done everything correctly and if it is giving me problems it's probably better to return it because there is nothing I can do (or anyone) to make it better.thumb.gif

If you are not a noob then you should try another install to troubleshoot to verify it is a bad drive rather than a bad windows install. I've had windows fail on me on fresh installs multiple times. Also it can't hurt to make sure you have a proper install media.

At any rate what do the BSOD's report ?
post #1498 of 5733
Depending on the motherboard you use, try with and without the proprietary SATA driver. Also, don'T forget AHCI.

So I got a 840 128gb pro for Christmas, was just kinda wondering if I'd be better off returning it for the non pro 250gb version(don't really want to add in an extra $100 for the 256gb pro, even if I'd be able to basically install all my programs on that size) From reading the guide just now and some reviews and benchmarks, it seems to me that for practical purposes, there's really no difference in noticeable speed from one ssd to the next, right?

My concerns are reliability(I keep hearing all kinds of weird practices people do to try to make their drives last longer) and I guess somewhat the speed, though I'm really guessing that won't be any different between the two. Also whether it'll be a pain in the ass to return to newegg to switch to a different product. I mean the 128gb as is I should be able to install about half of my games on that don't use steam(is there a way to change install directories to split games onto other drives if they don't need the extra speed?)

Weird concern, on games like paradox games, would the constant autosaves be a problem for the drive? I tend to save a ton in my games and files, and from what I understand writes are the problem with these drives. I don't know I held no interest in these drives because they just seemed like too much trouble, I'd like to just not care and know 7-8 years down the line my drive will still be running fine with no worries or issues, maybe I'll just keep it as a backup drive for a few games instead of a boot drive.
Yay

Seems the 250 840 non pro uses TLC and can wear out faster, plus the write speeds are slower. The read speeds are second only to the 840 pro 256
