i recently installed a sandisk extreme 240GB into the main slot of an alienware m17xr4 laptop. Recently, during use (such as while playing games), it will randomly disconnect, and will not be useable until a reboot of the computer. Just wondering if this is common, or if there is a solution.
I have tried unplugging and reseating the hardrive, but this still happens.
Just checked the toolbox, it passes SMART, but i noticed that the raw value for unexpected power loss is 7. So i’m guessing its a power issue?
