Windows says my intel ssd x25 disk is about to fail

Hello

I think i have a problem with my ssd disk. I tryed to turn my computer on and it was like extreamly slow 10min loading windows and like 5min to respond to any thing in windows. after a reset my bios gave me a warning that the disk was bad and press f1 to ressume. after the f1 windows loaded normaly and speed was normal. than after a while i got a warning to backup my intel ssd disk from windows. I have runned toolbox/crystal info, and the drive toolbox says lifetime remaining about 100% ? but crystal disk info says 99% BAD. the disk is not that old any one know what i should do ?

thx to any one who will help!

Hi

The problem appears to be transmission over the SATA bus. Basically the data leaving the drive is being received with lots of errors, so your computer is having to re-request the data many times and this is causing your slow downs. This could be caused by various things:

1) Bad SATA cable or bad connection. Try a different SATA cable and SATA port.

2) Cable is running past a component or other wires that are causing interference, so try making sure the SATA cable is routed away from other cables.

3) A fault in the SATA drive or the motherboard.

You can sort out 1 and 2, but if that doesn't help looks like something is faulty.

Hi

If things are running better now it might have been the cable. If it is fixed then the End to End error count will not be incrementing anymore. Eventually the drive will hopefully decide the problems are gone and it will start reported "Good" again and you will stop getting the warnings.
