Did my SSD just die?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
My rig worked perfectly fine last night - up until 7 a.m this morning actually and I shut it down proper as every time before it, however I turned it on just a few minutes ago and it is telling me to select a proper boot device. I go into BIOS and see that the boot order defaulted to the HDD instead of to the SSD where it should be (where the OS is stored). BIOS is not recognizing the SSD either, is it dead?

Is it plugged in correctly? Both power and SATA connections? That may be the culprit.

Have you tried a different sata port on the MB? Could be the problem.

Just checked both the power and SATA connections, and switched the SATA port on the MB to be sure, but still not recognizing the SSD in BIOS. Just shows my WD with no mention of an SSD anywhere.

1 more suggestion. Reset the bios ( I always pull the battery for 10-15 mins) and see if that helps. Also, do you have another rig you could plug it into to see if it comes up in that bios? If not it might just very well be dead. Is the warranty still good on the ssd

Can you take out the SSD and if you have an external enclosure, stick it in there and see if another PC/Laptop can recognize it. If it does, I would recommend backing up all important data as the SSD could be failing or dying.

I do have another rig that I could potentially use. And the warranty is still good, as I've just recently built this PC no less than 2 months ago.

What exactly will resetting the BIOS do?

I do not have an external closure, but I can see if I can pop it into an old rig to see what happens. Is there any software that I can use to be absolute that the SSD is failing or dying, so as not to completely give up on it without proof.

If it doesn't work with your other rig. I guess its a dead SSD.

Good thing you have a good warranty on it. thumb.gif

For the record, removing the power cord and removing the battery or moving the jumper for ~10 seconds is all it takes. 10-15 minutes is pretty unnecessary.
