Samsung SSD appears to have kicked the bucket

Q: 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?

Preferred Solution: Samsung SSD appears to have kicked the bucket

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Samsung SSD appears to have kicked the bucket

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.

A:Laptop Problems; Samsung Ultrabook Series 5

This sort of problem is tough to troubleshoot over the internet. It could be quite a few things that could cause the symptoms that you're experiencing. With that said, I'd probably start with updating the discrete GPU drivers. Since you did switch from integrated to discrete, this could be the main cause for the graphic glitches which is probably crashing the system.

Moving forward, I think you should download something like CPU-Z to monitor the CPU load and temperatures during the crashes. It could be that your CPU is overheating and could use some attention.

A:Samsung addresses slow 840 EVO SSD performance with another patch

I have bought several 840 drives myself, and our newest machines at work have 120GB 840 Evos. After installing Magician 4.6, I was presented with the option to upgrade to the EXT0DB6Q firmware. I then disabled rapid mode, and ran the benchmark testing(with rapid mode enabled, you're basically measuring your RAM). I saw about a 200 MB/s increase compared to my lowest score for Sequential Write, and more modest gains elsewhere. Note that with Magician 4.6, Standard performance optimization is not supported on Windows 8 or higher. However, a new "advanced" option is available, that performs a complete rewrite, refreshing data and alleviating access delays. It took about 10 minutes to complete on my system with about 60 GB used. I'll be doing more testing, and anxiously awaiting a Mac compatible ISO, as Magician is not available for OS X.

In August I purchased one of the new Samsung Series laptops with Windows -bit I love the laptop However due to eyesight problems I need to connect it to an external monitor I talked to Samsung BEFORE I bought the laptop and asked if they had a docking station for it They said they did not but that I would be able to connect it to a VGA monitor When I received the laptop I noticed that it did not have a VGA connection only a micro-HDMI connection I again called Samsung debacle external monitor Samsung They told me no problem just buy a VGA to micro-HDMI adapter They told me I could find one at any electronics store I was in Phoenix at the time and could not find it at any electronics store But I found a VGA-USB adapter I tried it and found that it worked except for when I was trying my email or browsers Then it just did not work I decided to buy Samsung external monitor debacle a new monitor and figured I would buy a Samsung monitor because it obviously Would have no problems connecting to a Samsung laptop I found a good monitor the Series S A H Before buying it I called Samsung and asked them if it would work They assured me it would connect to my laptop So I bought the monitor and had it shipped to me overseas When it arrived it only had VGA and HDMI connections I called Samsung again and they told me they had a VGA to micro-HDMI adapter They would not ship it to me overseas but would ship it to a friend in Hawaii who would then re-ship it to me After weeks it arrived However it was not a VGA to micro-HDMI adapter but the charger for my laptop I called back to Samsung and then told me to order it from Samsung parts I contacted Samsung parts and they said they did not have such an adapter and just to get it at any electronics store same story I still could not find such an adapter so I ordered an HDMI to micro-HDMI adapter When that finally arrived I was able to connect Nothing but problems I got no picture on my external monitor unless I unplugged the monitor each time and plugged it back in When I finally got a picture I noticed that it had about a inch border all the way around it thereby making it only a little larger than my laptop picture I called Samsung again and they said something like because of the HDMI to micro-HDMI adapter I could not get the proper resolution on my external monitor This is driving me CRAZY I have spent over on long-distance international calls to Samsung they won t call me because I am out of the US but I must call them and get a call center which is usually out of the US Why would Samsung make a laptop that is impossible to connect to an external monitor Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can properly connect my laptop to this monitor Thank you nbsp

A:Samsung external monitor debacle

edit: okay, now I read it properly.

Your Monitor may not be scaling the resolution to match it's maximum output. Try setting the monitor to be the only active display (as in output to external monitor only) and adjusting the resolution in windows to match the maximum resolution your monitor will allow. If that works, you at least have a starting point.

Also, are they referring to the Samsung AA-AH1NAMB/US Micro HDMI to VGA Adapter??? I'd suggest trying to find an e-tailer that will ship to your location, rather than dealing with Samsung directly anymore, since it REALLY seems to be costing you unnecessary time and money.

I am a beginner of hardware. I find two series of SSD to compare, 840 EVO and M500, because the specifications and the prices of them are approximate.

Both of them use SATA 3, so you need to compare with the read speed and the write speed, if you prefer faster one. The sequential read speed of 840 is 540MB/s, and the sequential write speed is 410MB/s. M500 is slower, but the performance of M500 is great as well, its Shock-resistant design makes it more durable than 840. The most important thing of SSD is the controller, 840 uses 3-core Samsung MDX controller, M500 uses Marvell?s latest controller, maybe the second one is better.

This is my poor review, how to compare them with more details, give me your advice.

No, it would not be, in the past I had to repair a tv for a friend that had his board shorted that was an LCD Sony Bravia 52 Inch and its board was very specific as with all Sony Products. The Boards on the TV's are the hearts and the companies that built them don't allow for parts to be interchanged easily.

What Manufacturer and Model is the HDD? Also, on Windows 7, I believe the max partition size a computer can recognize is 1TB, so a suggestions is using Disk Management, seperate it into separate partitions of 750 gb or so, then just link them in a RAID configuration. This will allow Windows 7 to recognize it as a single drive, but will also allowed you to use the full 3TB of space.

Since it is unlikely that your notebook/laptop has a floppy drive you will have difficulty installing XP on a SATA drive because of the lack of native SATA drivers supplied with the XP installation disk. No supplied drivers, no recognition of the SATA hard drive. During early Setup you are given the opportunity to hit the F6 key to install third party drivers (I.e. SATA/RAID drivers) but XP only recognizes a floppy drive for this process. These SATA drivers would have to come from the laptop's driver support page at their website.

An alternative is to make a slipstream disk which combines your regular XP CD with the appropriate SATA/RAID drivers to allow recognition of your SATA hard drive by Windows Setup. Perform an internet search for the procedure to make such a disk.

Another alternative is to enter the BIOS and set the controller mode to IDE instead of SATA, that is if your laptop BIOS has that option. Many or most modern desktops do but I don't know about laptops. When set to IDE mode, XP doesn't need SATA drivers to continue the installation.

Alright, so I'm currently tied between the Samsung 830 512 GB and the Crucial M4 512 GB SSD's, and after lots of review reading and internet research I came to the conclusion that the 830 is overall the better drive. The Crucial M4 however is available for me for ~520$ while the 830 goes for ~650$

Now if it was only for the speed difference I'd certainly go with the M4 but seeing as it is a rather old model and the 830 is considered to be the more reliable of the two I just can't make up my mind if it's really worth the price difference. Any help?

A:Samsung 830 vs Crucial M4 at this price difference?

I should also tell you specifically that I also want to look at how the drive would stand in say 4 years because that's about the minimum I want to get out of it. That's the main reason that puts me off the older and supposedly a little less reliable Crucial M4, but I just can't decide if 130$ is really what the difference is worth...

If you've already got the mounting kit, SATA cables etc. from your current SSD then the basic version of the 830 will be fine.

Yeah the 830 is better than the Force GT. Not as good as the Corsair Performance Pro but that costs quite a bit more.

Do you happen to have a bootable DVD? If so, try and boot off of that. This will tell us whether or not it quit working after the updates was a coincidence or not.

Bootable dvds would include several linux disks, Vista, 7, and the DevPreview or Consumer Preview of Win 8.

If it is within your budget, buy an external hard drive enclosure which operates with a USB or Firewire cable (depending on what you can use). They are available at many online stores such as Directron, NewEgg, Frys, and on eBay...
Do NOTHING more with your computer. Remove the hard drive now. When you get the external enclosure, insert your failing hard drive, then plug the "enclosed" hard drive into your new or restored computer, where you often locate the needed files and folders and drag them across,. This does not work everytime, but most of the time, the hard drive will not boot because of damage to the outer edge of the disks, but you can still see the data on the drive when it is on a USB connection.
Once you find you can access the old hard drive via a USB connection, do NOT turn it off or disconnect until you have rescued and verified all the data and images.
You may find that it works slowly and takes a lot of time, but it is surprising how often this will work to rescue stuff that is important to you.
If an external enlosure is not available to you, you may be able to insert the drive into another coputer as a slave, with changes to the jumper, and find them that way.
This works because the old drive no longer has to boot. It is not fool proof, but the only other method is to have a rescue company recover the data... it usually costs a lot of money... starting at $55 to test, and as much as $500 to retrieve the files.

Hey all, I have recently bought this monitor locally. However, after turning off the eco-saving and other features, the monitor still changes it brightness for some reason. I'm using an Analog cable with a DVI-convertor on the other end. I'm using Windows 7 64-bit and my computer specs are as follow:

Intel i7-950
Sapphire ATI 6870
2x 1TB WD Caviar Black

Thanks for any help!

A:Samsung S24A350H problem

My guess is that your monitor has some kind of "Store Demo" setting. Both my LG monitor and my Samsung TV has this, it took me some time to find out. It changes your settings automatically to predefined settings that look good when showing the monitor in a store.
Look for settings like "Mode setting", "Quick start" or "Plug and play", and change to home use.

Edit: Find these settings on your monitors menu, not in Windows

I've just been browsing on the internet through my wireless router.
Now its not working, its saying i'm connected to the router but not letting me go online.

I did the cmd winsock thing and that made no difference. I then connected through the cable and it was working fine, now i've unplugged from the router and its loading reallllllly slow/un usable.

Whats happened? it was saying it couldnt connect to dns server, but then it started working... but now its not :/

A:Samsung Vista laptop wireless now playing up

This sounds like either a fault with the routers wireless transmission or your wireless card in the PC.

Start by resetting the router, there should be a reset button somewhere on it, usually you will need a thin wire to push into the whole and hold it until the router responds. This will reset it to default so any security settings will need to be reset.

If there is no change take a look in Device Manager for your wireless card under Network Adapters, right click on the device and select properties, check to see if it reports any problems. If no problems are reported try uninstalling the device and then reboot so that windows will reload the drivers.

Let us know how you get on.

A:How can I install new Samsung multifunction printer onto wireless network?

To set up the printer for wireless use you need to assign it an IP address which it will transmit for the PC's in the network to log on to. If the printer does not have its own screen it will need to be connected by cable to a PC in order to do this.

If the setup disc will not run get a replacement as you need to install the printer drivers in all your PC's.

If you cannot replace the disc you will have to go the the Samsung site and download the drivers from there that are for your OS's.

As you now have the printer running off one PC you will need to install the printer drivers on the other PC's and then activate printer sharing. If I new what OS you are using on all the PC's I could give more details.

So yesterday I was on my computer and my monitor started displaying a "check signal cable" message on my screen. First thing I thought was oh snap my video card took a crap on me. So I plugged the monitor into the built in vga port. Still same thing. Then I thought, I would try plugging the monitor into my laptop. So I plugged it into my laptop. The laptop registered it was there so I set up duel screens. The laptop knew that the monitor was there, you could scroll of the laptop screen to the desktop screen, but still the monitor reads check signal cables. I then decided that my VGA cable must be faulty, so i replaced that. Still same error. I really don't want to get a new monitor, I have fallen in love with this one.

Any Ideas?

Hi to all (and happy new year!)

I want to buy a 2.5" external drive, but as you can imagine i don't know which one.
I have already opened a thread like this in tom's hardware:

[ I can't post the link due to rules, please google username gouzou in tomshardware to find the thread ]

but i wanted more like a debate on this matter.

The competitors are:
1) WD my passport Elite 5400rpm, 750gb
2) Seagate Goflex Pro 7200rpm, 500gb
3) Samsung S2 HX-MTA64DA, 7200rpm(i think..), 640gb

WD and Seagate come in same price, Samsung $20 more.
Please consider rpms, density of data, reliability and only usb3.0 or esata for your verdict.

I mainly want the drive to have high write rate.

A:Western Digital vs Seagate vs Samsung External 2.5"

Well for the start all those have preloaded software on them, if you like them or no thats up to you (for backing up your media).

the Seagate Goflex Pr haves some nice features, but only if you have a device to use it, ill say its between the WD and the Samsung, obviusly the Samsung will be faster but the WD haves 90Gigs more,its up to you if you want more speed or those 90Gigs more.

Hi all,

I just added a new Samsung DVD writer to my system and when I booted into Windows the drive cannot be seen. I rebooted and checked in the BIOS and the drive could be seen. So logged back into Windows and still nothing could be seen.

I have a SATA HDD which the OS runs off so didn't think it was the drivers. When I checked around on the internet the only thing that I could find was to upgrade the firmware, but in order to do that, Windows has to be able to see the device. Device doesn't appear in device manager so I'm now at a total loss. Any one got any ideas?

Some motherboards include SATA controllers made by two different makers which need different drivers. Maybe you have such a second controller and you plugged the new optical drive into one of it's ports. If so, you can just install the appropriate driver.

A:Samsung SP2504C dead?

In nour experience, the lifetime of a Samsung hard drive ends at about three years... or even sooner on the 250GB model... so it is probably time to change to another... If you do it soon, you still have a good chance of rescuing all of your data... but that total failure could occur at any moment... once you start recovering data, do NOT turn off that old hard drive until done.

Hi guys!

My old 17" CRT monitor failed yesterday and my Dad bought me a 20" Samsing B2030. The maximum supported resolution (recommended) is 1600x900.

However, to me, the display doesn't look as clear or smooth as my CRT! Maybe it's just that I was used to it for so long.

The monitor has support for DVI and VGA but came only with a VGA cable. Does a DVI cable improve the display? Is it because I'm using a VGA cable that my resolution isn't that sharp?

Also, when my monitor powers up it says "Analog Source". It's attached to the Radeon HD 4890 by means of a VGA adapter.

Any advice is appreciated.

have had a Samsung SyncMaster 753DF CRT monitor for a number of years now (6-7 years). It worked great with my old Pentium 3 system and is now part of our second family system.

In the last few years every once in a great while the screen would have a sheer pinkish over the screen. It wouldn't last long and for long periods never occur. In fact for the last year it was always clear -- until yesterday and today.

The sheer pink is ever present. No settings were changed. No power failures to speak of or hard reboots. It remained so until my son flicked the screen with his finger. Now it is back to normal.

Any ideas? If I have to buy a monitor so be it but if I don't have to spend the money so much the better.

A:Is my trusty Samsung monitor giving up the ghost?

I suppose with a monitor of that age there could be some dirty connections involved. It might be helpful to re-seat the CRT socket where it connects to the image tube, also the yoke connector and degaussing ring.

Before you go inside, make certain the plug is pulled and you bleed off any residual charge by holding the power switch in.

ALSO, most, if not all CRTs have a High Voltage cage, (sort of a box separate from the main chassis), do not attempt to go inside, avoid it like the plague, it will light you up big time!

Yesterday while watching movie on my PC it appeared as black on the screen and stopped working. After restarting the PC it was not responding as the BIOS was unable to recognize the hard disk. It creates an unusual sound while BIOS searches drives.

1. I tried by bootting the PC using another hard disk but this HD does not appear in the windows.
2. I also tried to boot using Ubuntu live CD but failed to find my HD on it.

As it is not recognized by BIOS, I cann't use data recovery software to recover the data. I'm badly in need of all data in it.

Please someone help me in this regard to recover the data.

Model: HD252HJ
Capacity : 250 GB
Interface : Serial ATA 3.0 Gbps
Buffer memory : 16MB

A:My Samsung Hard Disk is not being recognized by BIOS

Try the freezer trick. Place your hard drive in zip lock freezer bag to protect it from moisture and freeze it overnight (or a few hours at least). Quickly hook up the frozen hard drive and try to boot from it. If it works, be prepared to copy your important data as soon as possible before the hard drive warms up too much. This is not a permanent fix but it may work long enough to save your data.

i'm away from home forgot my power pack !

can i use any power pack to charge my laptop

ie from another laptop???

eg from an acer aspire?

A:Samsung R710 power pack urgent help needed?

It depends upon the Voltage and Wattage of the Acer Aspire Power Adapter

In your Samsung:R710 laptop
If you are using battery: AA-PB2NC6B , you can use a 11.10V 60Watt Power Adapter
If you are using battery: AA-PL2NC9B , you can use a 11.10V 90Watt Power Adapter
If you are using battery: AA-PA1N90W , you can use a 19V 90Watt Power Adapter

Looks like a power Adapter ~ 19V 90Watt is preferred

My Samsung burner is spoiling all my DVDs. After burning windows says "nothing found on the DVD". The media appears completely blank in explorer. I tried several burning sw (nero, imgburn, Grab and burn...). Another thing I noticed is that when I load the DVD, the drive appears as "CD Reader" and not "DVD RW" as usual in Windows Explorer.
Please help
thank you

A:Samsung DVD burner SH-W162L

Worn out or just plain bad. There is nothing you can do to fix it. Luckily, great DVD-RW drives are available for as low as $24 or less at,,,,,,,, or at your local computer store for a little more.
Most of them do not last more than a year, and sometimes less, when heavily used. To many parts. Too narrow of tolerances, and wear out of specs too easily.

My monitor and computer shuts down after approx. 20 minutes. I have narrowed down the problem to the digital cable; if I unhook that cable, the computer will stay on. Once I hook in the digital cable to the video card, the computer shuts down after approx. 20 minutes. Help, please.

Hi guys,
I bought a samsung 2233sw monitor a month ago, and running with evga 8600gt using D-Sub(VGA) connector.
Now-a-days i am noticing a intermittent flickering or text shaking artifact is displayed on my screen only when i run it in its highest(native) resolution that is 1920x1080 full hdmi. In lower resolution there is no such problem. but in lower resolution the display of the monitor is very poor and showing a text/screen bluring or tearing effect like other tfts.

Can u guys suggest some solution to the problem.

Can dvi-d connection wipe out this sort of problem.

A:Flickering/text shaking on new samsung 2233sw monitor

I suppose I'd spring for a DVI cable as a matter of course. It will look better, (assuming everything is working correctly) with the Digital connection

But, I'd really try your monitor on another computer ASAP. >>>(read this as first)<< In case it needs to be RMAed.

It seem's logical to eliminate that first.

The last time I saw anything such as you describe on a computer monitor was with an old Emachines 17" CRT. I think that was due to the degausser. Or maybe RFII.

First, any graphics adapter, even onboard, should be able to display up to 1920 x 1200 even connected via VGA.

So, in no particular order,

bad cable.

Electrical interference

Video driver corrupted or wrong version

Bad video card

Bad monitor.

I bought a Samsung recently, but haven't used it. It has a "driver disc" (?), so much for universal PnP. It was giving me trouble setting the color, brightness and contrast. Don't know if that was the video card driver. But the control sliders were really acting funky.

I am using a Samsung LCD monitor on my laptop, the last week or so when I have dark colors or images up, I see in the backround of my panel, it looks like everything is shaky or freaking out, the images themselves arent moving but I was curious how to fix this (If I can). I updated to my current driver, I am wondering if this is a side effect of me hooking this monitor up via VGA cable instead of DVI, my laptop didnt have anything else so I used what I had, it's been fine up until this my panel just dying slowly?

When a print a black and white text document straight from the computer, the quality is fine. Color printing is very faded, and color copying is bad. When I make black and white text copies the copies are all faded. Is there anyway to set the printer so that the color is darker or is there setting in the computer? I have tried using different types of inks, and I have emptied the toner waste cartridge. Is there anything else?

Everything else on the printer works fine though, and I don't want to get rid of it, but this is really annoying. I don't understand why the quality is so faded, no error signs have come up on it

Hey, I have a Samsung 19" widescreen LCD monitor that I use for my PC. It is being run through HDMI but also works with VGA and typical TV inputs. (Model number LA19R71B) It works great and I enjoy using it although it has an unusual characteristic. The color of the monitor is fine whenever its in the native resolution (1440x900) but it seems whenever it rescales to a lower or higher than normal resolution, the color is extremely bright and strong and while there is nothing wrong with the amount of color when in native mode I would love if it had the same level of color as when its not.
This is very apparent when I run a game, like Braid, that has no support for my resolution, so it attempts to rescale the lower resolution, but as it does, the colors become very strong and great. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Just a suggestion; try un-installing and re-installing your display drivers. Also, see if this happens in another OS such as a Linux Live CD.

I am in search for another back-up HDD for a good price. I found a 500gb Samsung for $50 which seems good even thou its a bit slower then others. I know there are some good 1TB deals which is the best gb to $ but that's a little more then I need atm. I have a TV, headphones and some other general entertainment electronics from Samsung and they've never failed me, but nothing PC related. Just looking for some input if anyone used one of there HDD and how there quality is.

Is this a good buy? Or should I stick with more familiar HDD brand such as a 500GB WD? They even have a $75 TB Drive =X .

A:Samsung HDD Quality?

All hard drives will fail sooner or later. It could be you will have good luck with the samsung, BUT I prefer to go with proven brands (for me it would be WD or Seagate). This is assuming you data is valuable. If it is not that valluable and/or you are backing it up anyway then go with the samsung.

Here is a WD for $60 with free shipping.
and if you shop around you might find even better deals

Hi my Sony Viao will not display on my Samsung LE40M87BD TV.
It is not a straight forward problem. The TV will recognize my Mac mini on a VGA lead and then if I unplug the VGA lead and plug it in to my laptop the desktop extension will appear on the TV. Fine but if I change the source on the TV and come back to the PC port it is blank on the TV, well on the Samsung if it dose not see a input it dose not give you the option to display this input. I have checked my Sony and updated it as much as I can but it is not sending a signal to the TV to say here I am. My Nvida graphics card can see the TV but I am stuck any ideas would be grateful.

I called Samsung, they said it was a firmware issue. Anyway, we tried a couple different things and nothing. Call sony he says.

Sony first of all charges by the way in case you didnt know. For an hour we tried all kinds of different things even tried that firmware and nothing. he says call samsung they may be able to help.

Strangely, I just answered a similar question here:

Basically go to your Manufacture driver page (this may help:
Locate your Motherboard raid driver

Download and create a disk (some you just extract and copy to a disk (disk meaning floppy or CD)

Then start Windows setup, and when you see the "press F6" at the bottom of the Windows setup screen. Press F6, then put your downloaded Raid driver in the drive

Also here's your ES Tool (The Drive Diagnostic Utility) to test that specific drive:
