Did I brick my SSD?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Swapped in my new mobo and did a secure erase on my SSD with Parted Magic. Attempted to install Windows 7 and after the reboot I get the "A read disk error occurred" message. I tried reinstalling Windows 7 three times and same error. Decided to install on a spare HDD to see if it was my SSD and Windows installed perfectly fine. Seems like a dead SSD. Worth RMAing this or get something else?

SSD work perfectly fine before I swapped in a new mobo and did a re-installed. I've gone through about 5 OS installs and 4 secure erases and never had any issues until now.

The SSD is a Corsair Force GT 120GB is currently on the 5.03 firmware. BIOS detects the drive as expected and so does Windows whenever I tried to install.

What SATA mode is the SSD set to in the BIOS? That could play a factor if it isn't set to AHCI or RAID mode.

It's set to AHCI.

Swapped some new SATA cables that I had laying around and that fixed the issue.
