PC Tech Question: SSD failed? - August 7, 2013, 02:08 PM

Got a Dell Lat D620 w/ Intel 1.66 MHz Core 2 Duo processor running Win 7 32-bit on a 120-gb ssd, 1024 MB RAM installed. It decided to restart on its own and has gone immediately to black screen ever since. The built-in diagnostics throws an IDE 0 error, and I'm guessing that is the SSD failing to initiate at boot.

I am running memtest86 via Ubuntu Live CD and things look good at 78% pass on test #4 at the moment. I let Ubuntu start up before, and the SSD is not recognized. Again, seems like the SSD failed.

So now my question is this. What are my options for this SSD? There is some data I'd like to recover from it, if possible. Of course, I'd like to get the thing running again too. I have a feeling it is a bad write from Chrome because Chrome got left running for a long time, like several days with multiple tabs open. That has me thinking that virtual memory was writing like a hog and shat the bed, so to speak.

Any insight or suggestions are much appreciated.

Get a 2.5" enclosure and see if you can access the drive on another machine...or if you have a desktop then plug it in as an additional drive.

I'm curious about the IDE error since SSD drives are primarily SATA.

Out of curiosity, what model SSD is it?

Go into bios, check if the controller is set to IDE or AHCI.

I had a cheap SSD(G.skill sniper) do that from the get-go in my Mac.. It would recognize the first time I booted it up off a fresh cloned image, but then it would freeze if I shut the laptop lid without shutting down completely. Then when I would reboot, it wouldn't recognize the drive. Weird that yours started happening after a while.. I switched to a Samsung 840 and I haven't had any issues in the past year or so that I've had it in there.

Hopefully you're able to recover your data with just a USB enclosure.. If you have a Microcenter near by, I got one for like $5 there.

Spent a lot of time in BIOS Setup and online, and I can't for the life of me find where I can change this.

I'm going to give up on this and try the external enclosure idea.

The drive is good then this will almost certainly be the issue.
