    Help reviving my Corsair Force GT 240GB :(

    Thanks for the informative reply J.C. Reid. Sounds like some serious work might have to go into recovering data, which depending on costs I might have to leave in the end. Fingers crossed that its just an electronics fault. I am still waiting for Corsair to respond; Still need to find out if...

    Many thanks Rcoon, much appreciated as always :) So far it seems okay for now, though I've not had much time to test it out properly. Only headache so far is activating 'Office 365 Small business' via BT - got a 'deal' with them as the Centre upgraded their broadband and phone. They need a...

    5 full computer systems needed for very basic IT/ICT teaching @ Community Centre - UK

    Been really busy with all sorts. I think I should change the title to x10 systems, because that's what was decided in the end on such a tight budget. But managed it somehow. It's an absolute tip right now, but I'm kinda 'chuffed' at the same time for someone who hasn't got a clue to begin with...

    Help reviving my Corsair Force GT 240GB :(

    Many thanks for offering to help out Garage1217, much appreciated. Your advice from before has helped me more than enough already. When you suggested I get in contact Corsair even after going just over my warranty I did just that. Corsair were kind enough to offer a replacement, and even keep...

    Help reviving my Corsair Force GT 240GB :(

    Thanks for the tips Garage1217. I'll give it a try and see if Corsair will be kind enough to help me out just outside the warranty. Yellowbeard - I've come across that username a lot on the forums when I used to update the SSD firmware in the past which I've not done for a while now. Very...

    Help reviving my Corsair Force GT 240GB :(

    I found a despatch note yesterday. Purchase on 28th September 2011....sucks to be me right now. Why didn't this problem occur early September this year?!?!? :p Corsair have responded as well, but straight to the point they are asking for a copy of the invoice to validate warranty. Guess my luck...

    Help reviving my Corsair Force GT 240GB :(

    Thanks for the advice Garage1217. On top of what I've already done, I've tried connecting it to various sata connections on a desktop motherboard, still a no go in the BIOS. Docking station will arrive either way tomorrow - can make use of this for my HDD's, and will probably purchase something...

    Help reviving my Corsair Force GT 240GB :(

    Thanks for the responses :) Later on I'll try the SSD in a desktop PC on various sata ports with different cables see how that goes first. In a few days that docking station should arrive so I'll give that a blast if no luck, then last resort to buy another SSD if all else fails. A shame that...

    Help reviving my Corsair Force GT 240GB :(

    Glad you had success Rowsol. I've read similar posts as to people having their SSD not showing up in BIOS, but by switching to different SATA ports helped them. For others the use of docking stations and then putting their SSD back into thier desktops/laptops have had positive results. Of...

    Help reviving my Corsair Force GT 240GB :(

    At the moment I'm just temporarily using a Crucial MX100 128GB as my C: drive. If all is really that bad for the Corsair Force GT, then I guess I'll be going for a Crucial mx100 512GB. For price and reliability is this a good choice? I certainly don't want anything fancy and expensive for the...

    Help reviving my Corsair Force GT 240GB :(

    Yikes, really that bad if it suddenly decides not to show up in the bios?? Darn, guess it served well just over 3 years without a single fault in the past. Just so random that it decided to do this out of the blue without any signs that it was going downhill. Laptop hadn't moved an inch since...

    Help reviving my Corsair Force GT 240GB :(

    Greetings all, My Corsair Force GT 240GB SSD has decided to suddenly not to work at all. Yesterday it was working perfect in the laptop without any problems, and turned off perfectly. Until today when I simply powered on, the laptop couldn't read the SSD. And according to BIOS there is nothing...

    Thanks people, will be interesting for me to see how this works if I get the chance. Let's see if all this doesn't go to waste and get the ball rolling first. I know, I know.....what a drag for just 5 systems :D

    Noted! :D Just to quote from their main page: Will that work from a 500GB HDD to a 128GB SSD? Or am misunderstanding?

    Thanks for suggestions people. I've passed my notes on to the old man, it's dragged on sooo long now it's unbearable! :d @RCoon thanks I've used your reply to help extend my list! Very informative! :) However IF anything gets through to 'that persons' dense nugget skull is another question lol...

    The headache escalates. It’s a Community Centre run by a handful, so making decisions has to be decided by the 'many' which leads ultimately by one person who has the last say. Who in the nicest way possible I can say is one 'clueless numpty' and takes his own decisions anyway regardless of the...

    Yikes I'm short for time - other work commitments :d Ok I will respond later, sound like a good idea! But more work involved :(. I will just quickly say that the original system the 'Tech' guy who was going to charge over £1000 for installation was going to provide this spec system... :s Shown...

    Thanks again everyone I'm soaking in the advice whenever I get free time :D @ RCoon - Thanks once again for the details, very useful info. I've been sending e-mails to all sorts of 'IT solution' websites to see who can strike the best deals on systems. See what I can get before I resort to the...

    Pheeeew thanks for all the informative info guys, very much appreciated! :) It would be nice to save a ridiculous further amount going the used hunting route/building systems from scratch. But I just don't have much free time to do these things. Also some companies offer up to 3 years warranty...

    @ Fourstaff, micropage7, a_ump - thanks for your input. To be quite frank, once this is set up that's me done there. I'm far from an ICT/IT person, hence some of my random questions here lol! Safe to say I won't be the one teaching, I still need to teach myself :p This community centre isn't...

    That's fine Silkstone. I think the original Office purchase I was going to make was for a 1 year license only also. Except that was @ £94.99 GBP each x5 :eek: This time it's an absolute bargain :) Thanks for making sure I'm aware, sometimes I can easily miss out on details like that. EDIT...

    @ Shambles1980 - Thanks for your input and time to respond. TBH there's always things with pre-build systems I could do with taking out and not doing with. Like with the 500GB HDD you mentioned - no need for that much. But I'll just make do with what I can do with pre-built ones, as...

    Guess no set-up is safe these days, but will try my best to leave things safe as best as I can with what I have. Thanks for pointing out these things.
