I just bought a SDSSDH2128G.
I installed a fresh copy of Windows 8. Installed my programs and stuff, with several reboots without problem.
Then with the joy of seeing 22s windows boot and speed of the drive, I shutdown the pc.
When I returned and tried to turn it on, everything was fine untill the Windows 8 logo, I don’t even saw the dots circling under the logo, the screen goes blank and monitor shuts down.
If I wait, after 5-10 minutes later computer reboots, same thing happens, reboots and it goes to auto recovery, can’t fix anything.
I then formatted the SSD and again installed a fresh copy of Windows 8. After the first reboot (before personalize screen) I saw the logo and monitor turned off again.
The interesting part is, if I connect my old hdd to another SATA 2 port and boot Windows 8 from it once, at the next reboot SSD boots up fine
But next time I try it, the monitor turns off after Windows 8 logo again.
I read somewhere that this could be caused by faulty SSD and TRIM.
I would appreciate any ideas.
