Solved I need help, my SSD harddrive is broken. Tags: Hard Drives Laptops SSD Storage Last response: July 17, 2010 6:50 PM in Storage Share _sluimers_ July 16, 2010 1:42:21 PM Hi there, I love having a quiet laptop and with quiet I mean silent. Not wanting a small screen I bought a Dell 12" (Still a bit too small in my humble opinion) and ordered a 1.8" SSD harddisk at memoryC. After a couple of months of use the harddisk started to give bad block errors or whatever and has become so bad now that it's no longer usable. I cannot even reinstall an OS on it anymore. So I have a couple of question. Did I overheat the harddisk? Should I return the harddisk to memoryC and ask for a new one?

Does the laptop get hot, especially where the drive is? And of-course you should try to exchange the drive. Share _sluimers_ July 16, 2010 1:58:10 PM Yes, it did feel warm where the drive was. Not excessively hot, but hot enough to assume that overheating must have been the cause. How do I prevent this from happening again? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
