120 gb 320 series PLEASE HELP

hello,

i recently purchased an intel ssd

the product worked for two weeks

now i get a message asking me to insert bootable media

i can think of nothing ive done new or different

the bios shows the drive

but it will not boot

i am using windows seven, i had updates set to automatic

is this simply a total failure of the drive and i should return it to the store where i bought it or is this something common with ssds and you all have a simple solution

typed from my phone, obv the comp is not working

thanks

josh

Also, I cloned my previous HDD onto the SSD. The cloned drive booted fine for 2 weeks.

When plugged into a computer using the USB adapter, no drive pops up under my computer.

thanks

after putting a Live Desktop CD (Backtrack Linux) into my laptop, and executing a "fdisk -l" command, the drive is listed as 8mb...

then I found this:

is there a fix?

well, after reading some of that, I feel like it makes more sense.

I took my laptop on a road trip this weekend and the last time I tried to turn it on the battery was dead, which seemed weird to me because have hiberation/sleep turned off but I couldn't remember if I shut the machine down properly or it ran out of juice because the power socket in the hotel was connected to the light switch and I didn't realize it. At any rate that was last night and I just put the thing back in its cary case instead of plugging it in. Imagine my surprise today when I got home and wanted to play some portal 2.
