Dell Mini 9 SSD Bad Sectors? - 09-19-2010, 12:27 PM
My Dell Mini 9 SSD (standard 16GB) is not working - I cannot read from it / write to it / partition it.
I 'zeroed out' the disk when I was attempting to install OSX in Disk Utility - is this what broke it?
I've run some diagnostics from a CD and it appears there are 'bad sectors' but no program will repair them.
Is there anything I can do? I cannot return to Dell or seller as it was bought new via eBay. If there is no fix for my existing drive, will replacing the SSD with a new one fix the machine?
I've spotted this SSD, is this a good one: KingSpec IDE PATA Mini PCIe 32GB SSD TO Dell Mini 9 Akc on eBay (end time 14-Oct-10 12:17:14 BST)
(I don't want to spend too much money on a RunCore or similar.)
