SSD lost its performance...???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi again,

I want to post about the issue i have with my SSD, it is a Samsung 840 Pro 512GB, installed in my latest laptop, i the beginning it performed excellent or great, but within the time and almost more than 70% filled, it is not slow and boot to windows 7 in about 50 seconds or 1 minutes, so even my Seagate hybrid doing better then, i posted a result from AS SSD and it showed 1K bad and also in Samsung Magician it said that AHCI is not available and can't recognize the connected SATA and it is connected to SATAIII, i remember first time i did installed it was fine and recognized the SATA and AHCI enabled, what happened that it changed everything?

Now how can i fix this SSD issue even if i free a lot of space? Should i try to reformat it after i move all data or can i fix it without format and will this return back its high performance?

It sounds like the laptop's BIOS was reset to defaults, or was somehow changed to IDE mode. How was Windows 7 installed on the SSD? You should post the AS SSD screen shot, it would help us figure it out.

Other possibilities, an automatic Windows update installed a different driver, an old restore point was used, or that SSD has been in IDE mode, with incorrect alignment from the beginning. Alignment does not become bad on it's own. If the original alignment was bad, over time all the extra writes that would cause will degrade any SSD.

Also, not enough information about the PC, such as SATA drivers, versions, make and model of laptop, etc.

Hmmmmmmm, i will take time to check out everything you mentioned then i will post here, even i don't know where is the problem, the SSD is connected to SATA III but somehow it is like it can't recognize it as a SATA III, could be the drivers changed as you said, will see what was BIOS or what changes happened to the BIOS so far.
