Hi,

 

I purchased a brand new ocz vertex 2 60gb sad about 3 months ago.

 

Worked fine until today.

 

I left the laptop (D630) on sleep for only about half a day, and when I woke up, the ssd would not 'wake' either it had froze.

 

I powered off, and on again.

 

SSD is now not recognisable by bios or ANYTHING.

 

Tried all OCZ toolbox. SSD is completely bricked.

 

Its a firmware bug known as 'wake from sleep'

 

NEVER BUY A VERTEX 2 SSD!

 

Hope this advice helped - any one else experienced this?

 

Seb

it's important to update the firmware first especially OCZ i have a vertex 3 256 http://www.ocztechnology.com/ocz-vertex-3-sata-iii-2-5-ssd.html first thing i did was update the firmware. i havent had an issue yet with it. also for ssd it is good practice to turn off hibernate mode 3 and set it to 0. mode 3 dumps all your ram to the ssd on sleep and shutdown... so if you have lets say 8 gigs of ram it will dump that on every sleep and shutdown. standard hdd is ok but an ssd has a shelf life. every read/write shortens it's life span.
