    Samsung SSD appears to have kicked the bucket


    Get a load of this. I rebooted my computer this evening, got a message that one app was still running that was keeping it from rebooting. Reboot anyway? Indeed and only to get an exciting blue screen with three options. One was F8 which did nothing and the Escape which puts me into the BIOS.
    When I go into Advance, I see a SATA Mode Selection. Hitting the Enter button, I see AHC1 is presently highlighted. There are two other options, one being IDE and the other RAID. Should I select one of those or do you feel my SSD has totally gone to pieces?

    :)

  2. IE crashing on windows 10

    Generic IE response...and a poor attempt at kicking the bucket down the road. EMET turned out to be the culprit.

    External SSD drive is stopped by Windows 10 and randomly disconnects

    Hi,

    I am also facing the same issue after Windows 10 Anniversary Update recently.

    I am using Samsung SSD T1 250GB.

    Previously before the Windows 10 Anniversary update, when the SSD is attached, plug and play kicks in and the drives will be detected. I choose Windows Explorer as the default program when ever the SSD is attached. From the explorer, I could then run the
    Samsung SSD Application software.

    However, now after the Anniversary update, WIndows 10 can detect the SSD as I can find the drive in the Hardware list, but I could not see a drive number being associated with the SSD.

    The above behaviors occurs when I am using a user accounts without administration rights. If I am using the administrator accounts, the Samsung SSD T1 Application mentioned about will be automatically launched.

    The workaround I did for the non-Administrative account is to run the Samsung application that I have previously backed up. It will then assign the drive number and I can access the data in the SSD.

    I have tried the troubleshooting but it does not help.

    Appreciate your reply.

    The SATA mode selection should be set to AHCI, unless you have more then one SSD or HDD in a RAID Array then you would choose RAID. IDE is for the older IDE HDD's and running older OS's like XP.
    In the Bios, on the Main screen it should list your Drives by manufacturer on your computer. Is your SSD showing in the Bios? If not, the drive may have become unplugged. Check the SATA data cable is plugged in tightly to the SSD and to the motherboard SATA port 1. And the power plug from the PSU is still plugged in tight to the back of the SSD. Make sure the SATA port is Enabled in the Bios. Try a different Data cable, try a different Power Plug from the PSU, try a different SATA port on the motherboard.
    You also can remove the SSD and attach it to a USB Adapter, Dock or Enclosure with a power adapter. To see if it is recognized on another computer.

    I'm afraid it is presently set to AHCI and I only have one SSD but do have a HD installed. On the main screen, the SSD is not listed. Being a novice, I cannot go any further than this. I do not believe the SSD became unplugged since the computer is not moved. Would you not think there is a chance the SSD is cooked? And it isn't even thirty days old yet.

    There is only one way to find out. Shut down the computer, take the side off and look. Reseat both cables on both ends

    Thank you for the suggestion. Just perchance it is the Drive, have you ever heard of an SSD kicking out in so quick a time?

    Look deeper in BIOS menu, on some, if SATA is set to AHCI mode it shows in a place where you choose boot order.
    You can also try to set SATA in IDE mode and see if it shows up in main screen where it lists all drives.

    Here's the go! After removing the partition a bit back, I thought all was glorious! Apparently after a bit, Windows begins looking for some Boot file that was removed when I removed the partition. Although all seemed to work well for a bit, suddenly and definitely without warning, when I rebooted the system, it wouldn't.
    I thought the SSD must have burnt to a crisp but no. I was informed the removal of the partition was the problem, so after recloning the Drive again, here I am, a happy clam waiting for my computer to burst into a ball of flame.

    Do you know which partition(s) you removed ?

    No, actually I don't. The C: drive looked as though it was divided into two parts called C: & F: I removed the F: and all proceeded as though normal for a couple weeks. Then suddenly upon reboot, I noticed a message saying something to the effect a program was keeping the computer from rebooting. It said "Reboot anyway" and the rest is history. I seriously thought my SSD exploded because it was not showing on the man page of the BIOS. I did find it in the Advanced. It must have been a partition when removed, took some Boot files with it. Strange though, it worked flawlessly for a couple weeks. Any ideas?

    Only if you changed default drive/partition for some system files like page file, backup, system restore etc.

    Go to Start/Search and type diskmgmt.msc, Right click the diskmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Disk Management window, in the lower pane, you will see all of your Partitions (Volumes) When Windows installs, it creates a Hidden System Reserved Partition without a drive letter. This partition has all of the Boot info on it. If you delete this partition, the computer will not boot properly

    I wouldn't have called it "change" but a "removal of such partition" but then apparently, not intending to, I must have changed something that Windows 10 didn't like. Why it worked flawlessly for a couple weeks or so has got not only be baffled. Do you think something else could have caused that?

    Spunk, here's a screen shot. I had removed the Data F: previously then suddenly the machine would not boot. I cloned it again from my older hard drive and of course, the partition is there again. I dare not remove it again unless I have a real boring day and I want grief.
