How to tell if ssd is bad ??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So how do you tell if an ssd is bad? or should i say Has gone bad.

Recently one of the machines has started BSODing on startup and doing check disk almost every time.

When it works, it fine, but while loading it will throw errors, such as xxxxx system file is corrupted, and cannot launch program xxxx.

When working, I can shut it down, and it will shutdown properly, but during boot it complains, windows is bad.

anyhow fresh format does the same thing.

ideas...?

It could also mean the OS has a virus or that it is corrupted, or that RAM has gone bad... there are other options besides the SSD going bad.

For the SSD you could use CrystalDiskInfo to get a health status.

Yeah i thought it might of been the ram: so i did a memtest86+ and it worked out fine. Just in case, i swapped ram with another pc.

I did a virus scan before reformatting after secure wiping the disc, still same error.

I believe i have at this point ruled out- > bad ram, and virus.

Also the clocks have been returned to stock.
