SSD Disappeared?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

Last night my computer turned off & when it restarted it couldn't see my SSD which I use as a boot device, checked the BIOS & it's not there, tried reseating all the cables & still nothing.
I wasn't doing anything strenuous on the computer, just watching a film, had firefox & utorrent running in the background.
I don't think it's a power issue as the pc turned straight back on & there were no other issues in the house with power, I'm pretty sure the SSD is dead. I'll try putting it in my SATA USB cradle when I get home & see if it works in my laptop, but just wanted to know if you guys had any ideas.
The SSD is around 4 years old & only used for my OS, but it is a Mushkin Chronos, so not exactly a premium brand.

Thanks.

Sounds like you are on the right path to figuring this out by using an external cradle or even your laptop. I might advise against booting to your OS with the drive in your laptop. It could start installing a bunch of devices you don't want cluttering up your registry when you put it back in your PC.

Another thing you can try is a new SATA cable, even a different port on your motherboard.

Wish it was the SATA cable, put the drive in a cradle & there was nothing there, picked up a Samsung EVO 850 250Gb, got home & remembered I have no optical drive so went back the next day & picked one up.
Everything back & working now, except for itunes, which I don't have the patience for right now after all the other messing about.
Thanks for your input guys........ thumb.gif
