Has this drive failed after only 15 months use. PC working fine one day the next it won't get past the first screen on boot up. Unplug the hard drive and it try's to boot but can't find the drive
AsuS saver tooth x79 board
Intel ssd 530 240gb
To say I an frustrated is an understatement having spent all day testing everything Else I just can't believe that this expensive drive has failed totally there must be a fix
Not tried to use the tool on the drive as only just found out we should be using the tool every week. PC won't boot so can't use the tool until get another pc to put this drive in. I don't even know if the ssd drive has power
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 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
If the drive is not detected as a secondary drive using a different PC and cables, please http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/contactsupport Contact Intel Support Center.
