Seagate integrators and OEM customers are faced with an increasing demand for thinner yet fully functional mainstream laptop computing solutions. Until recently, the only option for these thinner solutions revolved around high-priced, slow performing 1.8-inch drives and high-priced, fast solid state drives. Because both storage types were costly options, system designers had no choice but to build thinner chassis only for their high-end lines. Enter Seagate ingenuity.

I put this in an external case, and now its the backup drive for my laptop.
purchased an internal hard drive less then three months ago. grey screen today. contacted support and i get a link to deal with the manufacturer. no support and its not their problem, i exceeded my days of help or exchange or return, its my problem now.
Any ideas to stabilize this now? How odd.
Could you please advise:
1. Does the new SSD require formatting before use? I intend each to have only one partition.
I am running Win7-64 on an ASUS P868-V Pro motherboard.
Thank you for any help you can give.
