Can't POST with Crucial m4 512GB

Hi

 

Everything was working fine until today after I restarted my laptop... Now my laptop won't post with the SSD installed. 

 

I have a Crucial m4 512GB SSD, firmware updated to 010G (came wiht 000F), bought in june 2012...

 

Computers tested include a Fujitsu SH761 and a Acer Aspire 4810T. Both won't post with the SSD installed... Any solutions?

I would recommend downgrading your firmware to 0309. From what I've read on the forums here, that seems to be the most stable release so far.

Re: Can't POST with Crucial m4 512GB

Hmmm, looks like this was a problem with the firmware... It's probably fixed in the latest firmware update... 

 

Firmware for the Crucial m4 2.5” SSD is being updated from version 010G to 040H.

Version 040H includes the following changes:

  • Improved robustness in the event of an unexpected power loss. Significantly reduces the incidence of long reboot times after an unexpected power loss.
