Need help, 1 SSD dead and another one with OS problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure whether I should throw this into the Mobo forum since I suspect it might be the problem, but since I'm here what the heck.

Last Sunday, I had a Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB crap out on me completely, wouldn't respond to any SATA port, other Mobos or in a HDD enclosure/dock. At first, Windows would be stuck at the startup screen, then later on when I tried a reformat, it gave me an error and then the drive disappeared completely. I've completed an RMA for it already... buuuuut.

Now, I'm using my Kingston SSDnow V100 64GB as an OS drive but it's crapped out three times for various reasons and it's giving me "No Operating System Detected" for the fourth time... assuming it doesn't show up in BIOS again since I'm currently at work and not near the computer to double check.

Now, is it just my luck that ALL of the SSDs are crapping out on me? Or could it possibly be my mobo and its SATA controller? I don't think it's my power supply but I don't want to leave it out of the equation.

In this particular setup, I've got:

i7-3700k, no OC
2x4GB Crucial Ballistix at 1600Mhz regular timings
ASROCK Z77 Extreme4
Rosewill HIVE 650W PSU

And I don't think these are relevant but:
Fractal R4 Define case,
MSI R6950HD Twin FrozrII GPU
Some 1.5TB Seagate HDD
Enermax T-40 CPU Cooler
ASUS Xonar DG Sound Card


Any input would be most appreciated and helpful, I'm not sure where to go on this and since I'm transferring to a 4 year university, budget has suddenly limited itself greatly so I'm kinda at wits end right now.

The SSDs should be plugged into only the intel ports on your board. Using the third party chipset for the OS can cause instability and issues with the system.

Have you updated the BIOS on your mobo? Or the SSDs? Sometimes power cycling the SSDs will get them to work again. Also, a secure erase may be something else to try.

Try switching cables and ports. If the problem persists, try the Kingston on another PC and report back.
