Hello addy1321,

We are sorry about this situation, and would like to let you know that there are some actions you can do to confirm or discard a drive failure:

- Check in the PC BIOS if the SSD is detected properly.

- Try using the drive in a different port.

- Use the drive with different cables (Data and Power).

- Connect the drive to another computer, as secondary drive, then check if it is detected in the BIOS, or Windows* Computer Management - Disk Management.

If the drive is not able to be detected and you consider it might have failed, please http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/contactsupport Contact Intel Support for further assistance.

The next step is to acquire a pc to test the drive

What are the chances of the drive being dead as a pic

Is going to cost me £75

The drive is not dead it works perfectly in another machine I managed to buy at 11pm at night

Just about to run the great Intel tool which should fix the problem

But first I am backing up the important data

The Intel tool says it won't make any data get lost but I am being careful here
