sandforce ssds pissing me off.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
man... im raging so hard.

have 3 ssds... a corsair V32 (non-sandforce), corsair F60, and adata s599 120gb

started out with the corsair F60... everything was going ok, then randomly died?

now the F60 randomly will detect, but not show up in My Computer (can't access files that i want to recover)

i was desperate, so bought the adata. i like to put my comp to sleep cuz i run a million programs.... but when i come back from sleep mode, and play sc2, it crashes mid game. i would have to restart so i could get through a game.

recently, it crashes no matter what.... so i have like, 10+ losses just cuz of that.

tried to update firmware... says it failed.

***!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111111111111 im raging so hard.

what do i do?!?!

and how do i get my data back from my "dead" F60?

and could it be my motherboard's fault? i've hated this 870a-ud3 ever since i got it.

SIGH. can't wait for bulldozer.

edit: installed sc2 on my v32, and it still crashes.. ***

You didn't raise the PCI-e frequency did you? That can lead to all kinds of bad things happening to your HDD's/SSD's. Just checkin.

Well the only thing I can think of is to try and connect the dead one up to another desktop or laptop and see if you can access anything that way.

Have you tried returning everything back to default settings including you overclock?
I'd also recommend checking your PSU kinda sounds like a kernel power bug to me if it's quiting mid-game.
I'd look in your windows event logs and see what kinda critical errors you have. If you don't know how to do that then ask.
Re-seating your RAM shouldn't hurt either.

You are doing something wrong and it's not the SSD's fault. Have you done things like disable indexing, superfetch, defrag, etc?

nope, didnt up the pci-e freq... still at 100.

yea im gonna use an old hard drive, install windows, and try to update firmware and also retrieve info from F60... dunno if that'd help. i dont have access to another comp with sata ports.

4/4 slots are full of ram... did a memtest with all 4 in at the same time, no errors overnight.

i've opened event viewer... what should i do next? under critical, it says kernel-power.

i've disabled indexing, superfetch, defrag, and ran ssd tweaker 1.9.1

thanks for all the great pointers guys, keep them coming! <3

How can you say that? I have seen so many SSDs die over the past couple of months I cannot even recommend them yet to my customers. The majority of the time, they just stop working and even showing up in BIOS.

You can get a cheap usb to sata adapter from compusa or a local computer store if you have one nearby I think mine was like 5 bucks.
It says you had a kernel power issue?
Well I just had the same problem and I fixed mine by uninstalling and re-installing my GFX card drivers and OCing software. One of the other possibilities is that your PSU is going bad. Do you have another PSU around that you can try?

Before you buy a new PSU try uninstalling and reinstalling your GFX card drivers and software it fixed my kernel power issues when I was having them about a month and a half ago.
