    320 series SSD bricked?

    Sean

      I had a 320 series 160GB SSD installed as the boot drive on my 3 year old Lenovo W700.  Today the laptop BSOD'd (for the first time ever), and after a hard reset it refused to boot past the initial splash screen.  I was only able to boot with a Ubuntu live CD after physically removing the SSD.

       

      When I connected the SSD to another Windows machine using the bundled USB->SATA adapter, it appeared in disk manager as an uninitialized disk.  I got the error "The device is not ready" when I tried to initialize it.  Also, SSD Toolbox does not detect the drive at all.

       

      Has this happened to anyone else before?  Is RMAing the drive my only choice now?
