  1. That worked! I think there was something wrong with the GPD table (?), but either way, I managed to fix it in PartedMagic Live USB, then successfully clone the current drive onto it using the Samsung software! Still going to be a bit wary of it, but for now, it seems all good. Thank you so much!
  2. I managed to pull up the drive in an old version of Samsung Magician (seemingly it has issues with 840 EVO's in the latest versions) and it says it's all good. The SMART data shows the following:
  3. The partitions were unreadable, I tried a few recovery programs, and nothing was able to get the data back. I have backups so I'm more concerned with just having a functional drive than the data that was on it.
  4. It just says the drive isn't supported (the download page states it should be)
  5. Hey, Windows did an automatic update when I was out, and it seems to have totally wiped and broken my Samsung 840 EVO. The drive shows up in Disk Manager, and list of drives, but I can't format it, write much data to it, access any data that was there. I've tried so many solutions involving deleting and creating partitions, as well as changing the ports and cables it's using. The disk just doesn't seem to want to work properly. It's out of warranty by about 6 months, so thats out fo the question. Any help would be great! Thanks.
  6. I don't think I'll be buying Corsair again, if I'm honest. Back in September my Corsair PSU blew out my motherboard, CPU, and RAM. They wouldn't even RMA the power supply - let alone the parts that it broke. Just disappointed that the premium that is paid for Corsair products didn't help at all in my case.
  7. Other components with LEDs have been fine, I also swapped motherboard back in September - October. My G502 mouse always has the LEDs on and has no problems.
  8. When I first built my computer I went with a lot of Corsair as they have a good reputation, I realise that having a lot of a manufacturers product does mean I'm going to get more defects too, but it just seems a little excessive.
  9. I got a new motherboard last September (ironaically last one was killed by a Corsair PSU) so I don't think so. Plus the LED's on my G502, which are always on, are fine. Same the LED fans.
  10. Have others had as bad experience as me? Am I just unlucky or is there a wider issue regarding their LEDs? Over the past 3 year I've had to RMA the following Corsair products due the the LEDs burning out on them H100i - RGB LED Died within weeks, RMA'd for a new one. H100i - The replacement made it around 6 months before the LED died, couldn't be bother to RMA it again, given I never look at it anyway K70 - The OG K70 with the membrane function keys had the number lock indicator LED die after a year or so. M60 - Blue LED died after a year or so. K70 - This is the most recent one, as of the past week a few of the keys have lost their ability to display red and so I can only mix with blue or green. This is part of a rant, I guess. I paid a premium for Corsair products but just don't seem to get it - that or I'm just extremely unlucky. I don't use the LED's at all really, I only noticed that they stopped working on my K70RGB because it has a pattern it shows when I boot my PC, and the keys that should be red were blue. Sorry if it comes off as rantish or moaning, I just want to get this off my chest.
  11. That's kinda what I was hoping for, I'm getting a new PSU shipped soon. Still don't understand why the E10K is the only output that seems to do it.
  12. Nexus 5, my first good phone, had it since release and it's been amazing since. I'd honestly consider getting another one before pretty much any other phone on the market - the price is just too good for what it does.
  13. Using your computer in the dark to game or general use is weird.
  14. My Fiio E10K has recently begun making electrical interference sounds, getting louder whenever I move the mouse. It started after my motherboard got surged a few weeks back, I've since got a new motherboard, CPU, RAM and case, yet the interference persists. I've tried it on my laptop and there is no interference at all, it also doesn't seem to happen when I use the line out on the E10K. I'm really stumped, it only seems to be there on my desktop, even after changing most of the components. Is it possible it is the power supply? I'm using an old one after my AX750 broke (causing the surge that began this annoyance), it seems like the logical explanation except for the interference ramping up when I move the mouse. Any help would be great, I'd rather not have to RMA another thing this month >.>
  15. I'll give it a shot, you'd think they would have some integrity and just accept their product broke
