SSD Intel postville 80 GO dead?

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

I come here becaus I have some troubles with my new SSD in.

I bought it saturday, and I installed Win 7 without any problem.

Today, I unplugged it to install a new fan. Since this moment, I can't boot. If I try to reinstall Windows, only 8Mo are detected.

In the bios of my Gigabyte P35 DS4, I see this in details of SSD :

Do you think the SSD is dead?

Can the Sata port change be a cause of the problem?

Can I do anything ???

Thanks for all

Sorry for my mistakes, english is not my native language...

Short answer : yes your drive is probably dead but it still a "little" chance to restore it.

Yes, the shop gave me my money back, and for some euros more, I bought a Kingston 160 Go (identical to Intel), which was on special offer since yesterday

Win 7 in installed and running perfectly.

Thanks to all!
