PC corruption!19/05/2011 at 20:02 | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
It’s been a little while since I posted here, mainly because of some severe computer problems I have had recently.
But don’t worry, everything is sorted and I can get back to updating my website and composing new music!
If you are interested in what happened to my computer, well…basically my Solid-state Hard drive became corrupted due a writing issuse. This happened because I was allowing the drive to go into sleep mode and this damaged the drive. This is a known issue with Sandforce controllers (or something).
After this happened, I had to set up my old PC to work on. I could, however, continue to use this PC to compose music, I just couldn’t access certain programs because it would hang the entire OS. Eventually though, the SSD gave way and completely died.
I used my SSD for Windows 7 and all my other programs (Reaper, Sibelius etc) and, luckily, kept my data on other hard drives. Although, without the SSD, I couldn’t actually do anything! My only option was to purchase another. I will get the faulty one replaced once my work deadlines are over.
tl:dr, SSD became corrupt, I couldn’t compose anything for a week. All sorted now.
