Corsair Neutron GTX died during the night?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey,

Seems like I am not the only one with problems.

I bought my brother an "old" computer last fall, which had been working great, super great! 3770K, 280X etc...


It has been working flawlessly for months, I did install Win 8.1 on the 120Gb SSD and the get to storage his games on a 2Tb HDD.


But somehow, yesterday when he turned off his computer and went to bed, as usual and done for the last months. He came home from school excited to play some games and the computer won't start...


It says "insert a bootable device". I got into Bios and the SSD was gone.


Took it out and tried via my 2.5" > usb adapter and it isn't recognizable.


So my last cent is: The SSD is dead.


How? How can it just die like that?


I did buy the computer used from another guy (don't know what to call it). I do have the drive - so I would be able to RMA it, right?

You can always try booting up a Linux live CD and seeing if it shows up there as a last ditch effort. I'd say it's likely toast though

You can definitely RMA it. How did it die? Controller probably fried somehow. Corsair SSDs are a little flaky.

How it died is still a mystery. My brother just turned off his computer in Windows 8.1 as he does every night. When trying to turn it back on today it said bootable drive was missing. Couldn't find the SSD in Bios either and not in my own computer.


Been working without issues for us since last fall, and for the last owner since he bought it. Just sent the last owner a message in hope to get my hands on a recipe. Otherwise it may be difficult to RMA it?


Yeah, Indeed! Personally, myself, I would never buy Corsair SSD, not their other products either except for the Kxx rgb keyboards which are great.

I do only buy Samsung SSD, no matter what. I have a brand new 250Gb 850 EVO laying around which he can borrow until something happens smile.gif

One thing you might want to try is leaving it powered up for an extended period of time like an hour or so and then hit the reset button. I had this work consistently for a out of warranty Corsair that would never work on the first few boot attempts after hitting the power switch. My random uneducated guess as to why it worked was that some capacitor charged up...or something. It's worth a shot if you really need the data.

After reading through their rather laissez-faire support attitude on the Corsair website agree with you, no more Corsairs for me.
