Run the Samsung OS and Performance Optimization please....also, see what it says about a firmware update, something is funny with the firmware it says you have on it.
Sorry, I missed that - will run Performance optimization now.

It says firmware is only for Windows 8.



Kerry,

Here's the latest one.
Do you want me to rerun the Crystal test?

No, you don't have to run anymore tests. How does it feel? Does it feel like it is running like a dogs ass, or does it seem snappy?

It seems GREAT.

If you are happy with the results, I'll keep it.

I would suggest trying Intel's AHCI controller instead of the Microsoft one....(I'm sure there is a guide on here to do that) At the end of the day, it is your drive. It was your money, and it's your computer. If you can live without a SSD for a week or so, go ahead and RMA it. I say that because if there IS a problem with it, you are taking care of it before the RMA window passes you by. I can't put my finger on the problem so I don't know if things just got screwy or something internally is wrong. That would answer your question fully.

The only problem is, if there is nothing really wrong with the drive, they will inspect it and charge me.

I have a little while before the 30 day warranty to the Amazon supplier runs out.
I'll keep my eye on it.

Thanks again for all your time and patience.

I'm not sure they will inspect it and charge you. Amazon can't do it, Samsung would be the one to test it. That being said, Samsung doesn't have your system and they can't account for the variables. If they get it back and it works for them, so be it. If you RMA it, you send yours in, they send one back and that's that. That is how my experience with Newegg was anyway, and I sent back TWO Intel SSD's!

Try to find a guide on installing the Intel AHCI controller driver and see how it acts then.

All of a sudden another problem arose.
When I click any links, such as a message in email or Google desktop links, they don't work.

Any ideas?

If you want the IaStor driver, go to Asus website and find the drivers for your board. You will want the IRST (Intel Rapid Storage ) Driver. It is Intel's Raid driver but contains the IaStor Intel AHCI driver. And no, just because you install the raid driver does not mean you need to run raid. Just leave your bios like it is.

Once installed it will be your AHCI driver.

Do you have a browser designated as your default browser? Chrome, Firefox, IE?

I have Firefox set as default and it worked before.
Puzzling.
