At work we build alot of systems all configured the same as they are sold as part of a product. Over the last few months we had several hardrives die on us and we cant seem to come to a conclusion what the cause may be. We did some temperture tests and saw that our drives ussually dont exceed 50 degrees cel. The drives just die and can no longer be recognized in the bios. The drives are from maxtor and western digital. Any suggestions as to what can kill a drive this way?
Normal failures that you can get in any product. Contact the manufacture and get replacements. The drive could be fine when it leaves the plant and when you install it, but have a defect that wont show up for months or years. Not much you can do really other than return them.
