Dear TomsHardware Professionals,

I have recently bought a Corsair Force GS 128 GB and installed it on my system alongside my old HDD (Seagate 1TB)

and everything was working fine for 2 weeks, then oneday the computer got frozen and rebooted and couldn't boot from the SSD anymore.. so i tried the SSD on another computer and it failed to read.. i went to the shop and they replaced it with a new one after checking.

after 3 weeks of usage.. same story happened again! and they refused to replace it until they check with manufacture!

i consider myself an average computer user.. and i can't find any answer to my problem and i am afraid that this might happens again! so please could anyone help me finds out my problem

Thanks in advance :)

Hey there, I'm assuming your using an HDD or some other device to post this forum. If its your computer...plug in the SSD's and try going to my computer or just computer and see if they appear in there.

If they do appear in there, select one of them, right click it and go to properties. After you're in properties go to Tools, then go click on "Check now" under Error-Checking. When the little window comes up, make sure the two options are selected, then just hit start. I might make you schedule it for the next computer reboot which is fine...just reboot the computer and it should automatically check the disk.

I did some further research on this SSD and it appears that your not the only one who has had this issue. Its a manufacturing defect. I have found a few sites that have had very similar complaints...some folks their SSD lasted a year...some it only lasted 3 days.

Considering that your computer won't even detect it even in BIOS then there really isn't a whole lot I can do for you. Contact Corsair and ask them for a refund on your purchase. If they tell you "No" and that it was something you did, then provide proof that your not the only one who's had this issue in the past 4 years.
