  1. Samsung SSD 860 EVO randomly freezing on Win 10


    hello fellas,

    I'm in desperate need of some advice from experts Samsung SSD 860 EVO randomly freezing on Win 10 :p
    Google and some other forums can't help me with my problem, i've looked everywhere and its the 2nd time this problem exists.

    my problem:

    I have a SSD built into my computer, where win10 and some programms are saved on. this one is a samsung 840 evo. THIS is working perfectly fine.

    Then i bought another, bigger one (500gb), Samsung 860 Evo, which i use as an "external" drive, so i can use it for games and bigger programs.

    The first 860 evo i bought last year end of Summer, and it started having problems around christmas.
    It started randomly freezing the programs/games saved on there so as to get 2-3 seconds complete freezing action.
    At first i thought, the SSD is broken somehow. and before i'm trying to fix anything with software as to "make it worse", i just get the 2-year-warranty from amazon and get a new one.

    This one, also a 860 evo 500gb same build, was the first month perfectly running smooth and stable.
    til last week. Same problems arise again and it just randomly freezes.

    Attached are 2 Screenshots, the first (1) where i try to write something on the SSD, and the 2nd (2)while trying to installing a game (5gb size) and it just stops during the installing process due to this freeze.


    what i tried so far with this freeze:

    - stop superfetch / windows search
    -achi link power management - hipm/dipm : always active
    -i have no antivirus installed, so no need to change something there Samsung SSD 860 EVO randomly freezing on Win 10 :p

  2. does windows 10 recognize samsung 860 evo

    I've been reading that a number of people are having trouble with windows 10 working with a Samsung 860 EVO 500 GB SSD. I've tried looking on the Samsung website for the driver for this drive and they have all other models except the 860 EVO. Do they work
    together?

    Samsung 860 ssd 1tb firmware


    There were a lot of issues a year ago or so with Samsung SSD Firmwares when they updated them for E-Drive ((bitlocker compatibility) , so just be wary and do some research 1st as they can't be downgraded and the only fix was to RMA the Drives....

    Samsung SSD 860 EVO randomly freezing on Win 10

    Win10 clean install on Samsung SSD 850 EVO

    BLUF: SSD is not listed ubder "Where do you want to install Windows?"

    Steps Complete:

    1. I've create a Win10 bootable install usb.

    2. I connect the new Samsung SSD 850 EVO via SATA.

    3. I reboot PC and verify SSD is seen by the motherboard/BIOS

    4. Begin Win10 install via usb.

    5. Get to "Where do you want to install Windows?" and the SSD is not listed

    Problems:

    1. Samsung does not offer a driver for the 850 on their website

    2. Cannot locate driver elsewhere

    Unsuccessful Mitigations Steps Attempt:

    A. Format & partition SSD via Windows Disk Management, then retried steps 1-5 above....same result

    B. Clone existing HHD onto SSD via "Image for Windows" by TeraByte, then verified SSD contents via Windows Explorer....similar result

    Can you please offer some advice on locating a driver for a Samsung SSD 850 EVO 1TB drive? Or an alternative method?

    Thank you
