This was a cheap easy to install solution for my falling MacBook Pro.
Great for my asus g1s. Simple plug and play. I did have a windows 7 disk to reinstall windows which made things very easy. This drive fit in my asus g1s notebook just like the website said it would.
i put the hard drive in my macbook pro.
its a nice looking drive, with good memory.
the hard drive had small irrelevant defects.
took awhile for my computer to get used to it.
I had a 350gb hard drive that got full with pictures, I installed 1TB , easy installation and Im very happy with it
My laptop kept shutting down overnight, and the hard drive was filling up. This hard drive took care of both problems.
Ordered memory and a hard drive. Crucial listed the items I needed making the transaction very easy.
Thanks for contacting us today. We would be happy to help you find a new upgrade for your system. What is the processor speed of your iMac? Thanks for this information.
Thank you for contacting us today. Installing the SSD is also fairly straightforward. You can either clone your current data to the SSD or do a fresh install. You will need to find a special bracket to ensure that the SSD fits into your Mac properly.
There is a big advantage to upgrading to an SSD, because you will have no moving parts and you will notice a huge speed increase. The extra speed should future proof your system a bit.
Please let me know if you have any other specific questions about this upgrade.
I recently purchased from Crucial an MX100 512gb SSD for my desktop computer primarily to give me more C-drive space (Asus P7P55D PRO running Windows7 on a 160gb Intel X25-M SSD). Using the Acronis cloning tool I successfully cloned the new SSD, altered registry and BIOS settings to enable AHCI, and installed the SSD. It appears to work perfectly – giving me the extra disk space I need and providing a welcome performance boost. I am delighted.
Encouraged by this relatively painless process, I decided to try to upgrade my ancient laptop – which is a Dell Inspiron 640m, running XP and without AHCI support. It needs more disk space having a mere 50gb but most of all it needs a major performance boost – particularly at boot time when it takes some seven minutes to boot to a usable desktop screen. I purchased an MX100 256gb SSD for this purpose (which Crucial's compatibility tool says should work), cloned my existing HDD to it using Acronis and installed the SSD in the laptop. However, Windows wouldn't load – giving me a blue screen error (0000007b) message which a google search tells me may have something to do with missing drivers. In my subsequent futile and random efforts to try to sort this out I think I have "bricked" the SSD!
I would like to start again with a new 256gb SSD for my ancient laptop which I would again purchase from Crucial but before ordering that would appreciate any advice or suggestions on how to avoid or otherwise deal with the blue screen error. Are additional drivers required and if so how should I obtain and install them? (Please note that I do not wish to upgrade the laptop to Windows7 or 8 - and am aware that I will not have the benefit of TRIM if I can succeed with the installation of an SSD into the laptop.)
Any thoughts or pointers would be hugely welcome.
Regards to all
I am sorry for the issues that you have experienced trying to contact us. We respond to emails within 24 hours, so I am not sure why you did not receive a response. Please pm me your email address and I would be happy to check into this further.
Have you experienced any issues with the SSDs besides this error? This article can help clarify some of the most common misconceptions about SMART data. If you aren't experiencing any issues other than that message I would not worry about it. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
I too am considering this upgrade to SSD. This may seem trivial but try control panel, programs and features, windows features and untick internet explorer then reboot. Upon reboot go and retick the box to reinstall that feature. This has worked for me in the past when ie stopped functioning. Good Luck. Please let us know the results.
