How to get your Kingston 40GB SSD to support TRIM - Page 26

This guide is only for the 40GB, I think the 30GB uses a different controller and as such this guide would not work for you.

Ok cool thanks enterprise.

I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this, but it looks like a lot of people in here have been running this drive for a long time so..

I've been running a Kingston 40 with TRIM enabled on the stock firmware for almost a year now, and just recently it's developed a strange issue where the speeds (writes especially, and 4k random the most of all) are a lot less stable then they used to be. When benchmarking the drive usually hits its rated speeds, but at seemingly random points the speeds drop, sometimes into the single digits. I zeroed the drive and reinstalled Windows but it started doing the same thing again after about a day.

Anyone else see any issues like this?



Nevermind; drive just blew up. RMA time.

A couple questions if it's OK.

First, what does the Op mean by this comment:
Quote:
Once you have cleared the configuration from your drive. ( I did it twice just to be sure ).

...on the last part of the Hdat2 portion?

Secondly, I was able to flash my drive, but Hdat2 is telling me that I need to do something with what cjph said here:
Quote:
HDAT2 did finally see the drive, but would not let me restore the settings (I did'nt note the warning but it mentioned HPA) until I selected the next menu option (Hidden Areas Test) and temporarily disabled HPA (from memory - I think that is what it is called). Tried the restore in the DCO menu again and it worked !

I understand I need to go into the Hidden Areas Test to temp disable HPA, but what is the exact option?

Thanks for any answers. smile.gif

Well I am not sure how clear I can be on that one. I made steps on how to clear the configuration on the drive
post #256 of 285
So your reference to "clearing the configuration on the drive" was not a new step after DCO restore, but rather a redundancy in the article referencing the whole process with Hdat2?

Thanks.

A big thanks to everyone responsible for putting this guide up. I was able to flash my Kingston SSD and then enable trim via Hdat2. I had to temporarily remove HPA in the Hidden Areas Test portion of Hdat2, and then proceed with the DOC restore.

This was done on a Gigabye G33M-S2 and an SSD with Win 7 installed and a ton of work programs. I also ran the Intel SSD toolkit and did an "optimize", and now I'm seeing results similar to Hotdogstorm in Crystal Mark, even though I have 1.7 TB of host writes. Before I did anything though I backed up my SSD using Clonezilla. Great app that took only a few minutes.

Glad you got it all sorted !

Any chance of getting the newer Intel 02M3 firmware to work with the 40GB Kingston V series? I have the 02M3 firmware on my 80GB X-25M, but my Kingston is running the older 02HD Intel firmware.

Thanks!
