In Febuary of this year I purchased a Crucial M4 256gb SSD. I have had zero issues with it and the speed increase has been nothing short of amazing. That all come to end this last week or so. It started when using torrents, if I got up to a certain download speed the PC would lock up and I would have to hard reboot. Figured it was just a hiccup but it started happening more and more often, even while doing many different things. The only solution was a hard reboot. No bueno.
Last night, after about 30-40 mins of uptime, I would attempt to issue a command only to be greated with an Input/Output error. I thought ” Are you $%!@ing serious?!”. Started looking through all my logs, dmesgs and did some serious GoogleFU. Logs and dmesg didnt’t revealed anything worth a damn and my GoogleFU was all over the place. Then I found this
Well I’ll be, one command later and I had my answer….

As you can see the ‘Power_on_Hours’ is 5270. That would be well over the 5000 mark.
Simple enough fix, download the ISO and burn into to a CD or you can use “DD and burn it to a USB. After this SSD runs great again.
