How does that 6 year warranty work with microcenter?

You can also use tools like AIDA64 to run stress tests on the drive itself. As for claiming the warranty, simply bring it in to your local Micro Center store and they can exchange the drive for you. Make sure you back up data prior to exchanging and securely erase the drive (we also securely erase, but you can never be too safe). If you purchased the drive online and don't live near a Micro Center store, let us know and we can reach out to you via email with further instructions on how to process a warranty claim. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 63 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 248 Consumer Tech 68 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 69 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 78 Off Topic 17 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

However I bootd up my PC running Windows 10 and its no where to be found. Please advise.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin April 2020 edited April 2020 Greetings JJ, and welcome to the Micro Center Community. There are two things that I can think of that may be causing your issue. The first thing would be to verify your cable connections - you will need one cable running from your computer's power supply to the back of the drive (typically on some power supplies labelled SATA). The other cable would need to be running directly from your hard drive to your motherboard such as https://www.microcenter.com/product/247547/evercool-7-pin-sata-female-connector-to-7-pin-sata-female-connector-sata-data-cable-18-in---red - this would go into a SATA spot on your motherboard. It sounds like you have some drives installed already, so typically you can find additional ports by where your current drives are plugged into. If you've got those cables there is another step so just let us know. If you need to check your cables, make sure your PC is turned off and unplugged before adjusting any wiring/cables.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JJ_ ✭ April 2020 That was helpful as I was missing a cable - the one to the board so I got that done. Same problem now, I boot up and still no drive. Is it defective or what else is going on? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin April 2020 Most likely the drive just needs to be set up in Windows at this time by partitioning it. Here is how to complete that: Right click on the Start button then select Disk Management. Look for Unallocated space in the Disk Management window. Right click on the unallocated space, then select New Simple Volume. On the Welcome to New Simple Volume Wizard window, select Next. On the Specify Volume Size window, the simple volume size should match the maximum disk space size in most cases. To make the partition smaller, type in a smaller amount into this volume size box. Select Next to continue. Select a drive letter for the new partition by Assign the following drive letter (you can use any drive letter shown here) then select Next. Select Format this volume with the following settings. Using default settings will format the drive properly. Settings such as file system, unit size and volume label can be changed here. Select Next to continue. Once the format completes, a summary page will appear. Select Finish to close this window and return to the main Disk Management window. 3 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JJ_ ✭ April 2020 Yes that worked thank you I'm all set 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin April 2020 JJ_ said: Yes that worked thank you I'm all set Glad to hear we were able to get that up and running for you. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook moondog548 ✭ June 2020 Same issue for me solved by this article/guide.

I have 2 identical Inland Platinum 1TB drives running as C: and D: I ran CrystalDisk on both drives and am including the results here. I'm not exactly sure how to read these results but it certainly appears that drive C: has a much lower write speed than it should. Is there a way to tell if this drive is going bad? Thank you! Scott Golden 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin August 2021 Greetings. I would further test the drive out to get some more info on what may be going on, here is a guide on how to do that: https://www.howtogeek.com/134735/how-to-see-if-your-hard-drive-is-dying/ 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Scott2553 ✭ August 2021 Hi Ian, I followed the article you sent. Everything came back "good", so I imagine the drive is fine. Do you have any ideas as to why that particular drive would have such slower write speeds than the other identical drive? Thank you, 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin August 2021 Do the tests stay consistent if you try the test again after a computer restart? Just to ensure the drive was not in use when it was being tested. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Scott2553 ✭ August 2021 Yes, test results are the same after every reboot. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin August 2021 Is this the drive you have your OS installed on? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Scott2553 ✭ August 2021 Yes 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin August 2021 edited August 2021 @Scott2553 Benchmarking the drive with the OS installed will impact the score, but nowhere near this significantly. Lets look at and pursue three possibilities. There' something running on the drive that's tanking your write performance benchmark. Check Task Manager for disk usage. See if there are any obvious offenders. At the extreme here, if this is convenient. Back up the drives. Wipe them, swap them around. Install the OS on what's now D:. Run the test again, see if the benchmark results follow the drive or OS. TRIM isn't operating normally. If the drive is having to erase the drive before it writes, the performance will be abysmal. Lets try to force TRIM and see what it tells us. From PowerShell (Administrator) type: "Optimize-Volume -DriveLetter C -ReTrim -Verbose" - See what this returns. It should be quick is TRIM is working, you'll only have a few GB's that haven't been trimmed. An alternative to this would be to wipe the drive from command line, make sure you backup your data first. With DiskPart, select the drive then do "Clean All". This will zero the drive out. If the performance peaks, then falls off over several weeks, depending on use. That's an indication that TRIM isn't running. We can also check the status of it with command prompt: "fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify" - Should return 0 if it's enabled. Third option could be an issue with the board, or PCIe lane usage on the board. Beyond that it's a bad drive, but we should diagnose that at the exclusion of these other possible issues. Please provide us with more details about your system as well. Particularly the motherboard and processor. I would also like to know the setup. Is drive 0 in M.2_1 and Drive 1 in M.2_2? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Scott2553 ✭ September 2021 Thank you for these suggestions. Sorry, it took so long to respond, have a ton of data on both drives and needed to back everything up before wiping them. The same drive still returned poor write numbers swapped with the "good" drive. The motherboard is an MSI Tomahawk B550 that was purchased at the same time as the drive and is performing as intended. CPU is Ryzen 5 3600. TRIM is running and returned 0. Yes, Drive 0 is in M,2_1 and Drive 1 is in M.2_2 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin September 2021 @Scott2553 No programs running in the background that you can see, that are writing to the drive? You might also run a test in safe mode. That'll kill your installed programs and most background services. If the results improve significantly there, we'll know there's something accessing the drive that's responsible. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Scott2553 ✭ September 2021 Results very similar 3400 Read and only 72 Write while in Safe Mode. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin September 2021 edited September 2021 @Scott2553 Sounds like the drive. Testing it as a data drive would be the last thing you could do, but that's up to you. You can have it replaced under the manufacturer warranty on the drive. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin September 2021 To add on to that, you can simply bring the drive into a Micro Center store for assistance under warranty. No appointment is needed. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Scott2553 ✭ September 2021 Thanks, guys for all of the suggestions.

Sorry to hear that you're having issues with your SSD. Unfortunately, based on what you've explained it does sound like your drive has failed. Another troubleshooting option would be to test it in a different system. See if you can access the drive from another system that has already booted. Otherwise, I would recommend bringing it into the store and speaking with an associate. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook jojay ✭ January 2021 LandShark said: Otherwise, I would recommend bringing it into the store and speaking with an associate.

Taariq ✭ January 2021 edited January 2021 in General Discussion Hi, I have an Inland Premium 1Tb SSD(boot drive) which I had for about a few months now. I suspect the ssd is failing as when I boot up my PC I am getting a "proper Boot device" error. Already looked through BIOS and everything so...  I have the receipt from 07/07/2020. So how should RMA this Inland SSD? Thanks 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSMikeW admin January 2021 @Taariq Inland is our in house brand. All you would need to do is to bring the drive in for a replacement if it has failed. Now, the drive is no longer bootable. Is the drive detected in the BIOS at all? Have you tried to reinstall and OS on it to see if it's even showing up at this point? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Taariq ✭ January 2021 TSMikeW said: @Taariq Inland is our in house brand.

Everything is working except my 2nd M.2 SSD is not showing up anywhere. Ive been using this SSD for a while now with no problems. My bios are up to date as well but still nothing. I've also made sure it was seated properly on my board. Any help? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers TSMikeW admin January 8 Greetings @cdutt2727, Please list your motherboard model, system spec and which M.2 slot the drive is installed in. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook cdutt2727 ✭ January 8 Hi, I have a MSI b550 tomahawk MAG. I talked to MSI and we figured out the M.2 Slots were not the problem as a plugged my main ssd in to both and it worked. I have a m.2 external housing that I plugged my ssd into and that through usb and I was able to get it to read. It just wont show up when attached to the motherboard m.2 slot. Could this be a compatibility issue? Or a software Issue? Thanks 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin January 8 @cdutt2727 Yes, if it works in an enclosure, you've tested all the ports and the item won't even show in the BIOS, then it's a compatibility issue between the board and the NVME controller. Looking online indicates the MSI boards had issues recognizing some NVME drives about a year ago, but most report the issue was solved with a BIOS update. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook cdutt2727 ✭ January 9 Okay. I've read online that the ssd can have a driver update. Is that true? Is there anything I can do or do I have to get a new ssd? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin January 9 @cdbutt2727 Drives could have a firmware update made available for them, but none is currently available for this drive. The drive could be used externally. I'll see if I have a comparable MSI board this week to test this with and we'll see what we can do. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin January 10 @cdutt2727 I didn't have a Tomahawk available.

You're able to enter the BIOS, select Storage and there's nothing underneath the M.2_1/2 category with that M.2 installed? Also please list your full specs if you could, and we'll look into everything we can. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook cdutt2727 ✭ January 10 Yeah I’ve tested my boot drive which is a WD on both ports and it recognizes that. The inland one won’t show up in the bios on either slot just says not presented.

We need to find out the exact model. From there, we'll get a sample. test it and contact MSI for solution. It will be a process but we'll certainly follow through with it to see if MSI can offer a solution. If you have your purchase information, let me know. I'll create a ticket so that we can get that information from you privately.

The case doesn't have any internal slots for a DVD drive (this is rare for most cases, anyways). You'd need an external DVD drive for this. If it's primarily for gaming, and not editing/streaming, you can also knock the processor down to like a 5700G or 5600X and put some of your budget towards a better video card if you want. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sfoxbower07 ✭ April 13 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/41481#Comment_41481 What is missing?

What drive set up are you using? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin March 2020 I am using a single Inland 2TB NVMe SSD: https://www.microcenter.com/product/608649/inland-premium-2tb-ssd-3d-nand-m2-2280-pcie-nvme-30-x4-internal-solid-state-drive. To improve my performance and longevity of the drive, I am using a block level cache to let my excess memory cache in place of the drive. Since all mundane writes are deferred to my RAM instead of my SSD, the lifespan is improved while also improving performance on repetitive tasks and programs that I access more frequently. Here is what my RAM performance currently looks like: DDR4 4400 C19 kit clocked at 4000 c15-15-15-30 with a Command Rate of 2, 4x8GB configuration (single rank). This configuration makes a pretty significant difference in performance for things that rely on heavy repetitive usage of your disk. Open-world games that stream textures such as Grand Theft Auto, Skyrim, Red Dead Redemption and Minecraft all show much more stable framerates when loading in streamed textures when completely removing a disk I/O bottleneck.  With how cheap RAM has gotten nowadays, I recommend this option to anyone looking to improve their I/O performance all around. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook sknecht ✭ March 2020 dwqdwqq 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook sknecht ✭ March 2020 edited March 2020 I need some help. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ryau ✭✭✭✭✭ March 2020 sknecht said: I need some help.

I got a new Inland 512 SSD and tried installing Windows 11 for a friend's friend and it wouldn't run the software that he wanted. So I figured "fine, I'll just wipe and put Windows 10 on it" except it wouldn't wipe, at all, no matter what I tried, in both Windows and Linux. I even tried Parted Magic, TestDisk, even the Windows Disk Management on an external system. I also tried diskpart's delete partition override and even attributes clear readonly just in case. It makes me want to burn the laptop and move to a part of Appalachia where if something beeps they shoot at it. At least I don't program because if I did I'd probably be a raging alcoholic. Anyway I think we're going to return it and try another brand. I was really hoping it would work too as it was recommended by a helpful associate at the tech desk. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSPhillipT admin February 21 Hello @Scary_Guy Thank you for posting on the Micro Center Community and I apologize for the issues you are having with your Inland SSD. It definitely sounds like you know what you are doing when it comes to using the drive and installing an operating system onto it. With all the information that you provided, I do think the best option would be bringing it back to our store for a return or exchange of the drive. I apologize for the inconveniences but I am sure our store can definitely get you taken care of. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Scary_Guy Detroit, MI ✭✭ February 21 Thanks, I just hope it's just a one-off and not a bad batch of them or something, but I highly doubt that would be the case. I've usually had decent luck with Inland. Told my friend to either go with a different brand or get a 250gb which should still be plenty for their needs. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin February 22 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/40326#Comment_40326 Sadly failures like that can happen to any brand of product, the Inland drives are really well reviewed so it's not a normal thing. We would be able to assist with warranty options directly at the store. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Scary_Guy Detroit, MI ✭✭ February 22 Thanks, it's already been taken care of and the laptop is up and running (client went with a Samsung.) This was more about trying to figure out what went wrong and why. The service desk associate said they'd probably destroy it as is policy for anything but there was no real sensitive info on it yet, so I suggested they play with it or send it back to see why it failed exactly. Actually the store clerk didn' t really know the protocol and the service guy called a manager because he wanted absolute clarification. I really appreciated all the care taken but it wasn't really necessary for that particular drive. It would be cool if there was some type of waver I could sign that said it was okay to at least tinker with it to find out what went wrong and/or restock it in the event it could be repaired (because I hate to see possibly fixable product go into the trash, since you guys do pay for it and it just creates more e-waste.) 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 63 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 248 Consumer Tech 68 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 69 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 78 Off Topic 16 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

This is our house brand, similar to PowerSpec. Typically we get shipments of these items every 1-2 weeks. However, if you're interested in having this item shipped, it looks like we are able to ship this directly to you. Simply select the "Change" button under your store at the top of the page and select "Shippable Items". You should then be able to add the item to your cart and place an order for shipping. Hope this info helps.  Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns!

Now I have to try to resurrect a hard drive I was hoping to never have to use again... wtf?!? I mean... are they just crap?

I've never been asked if I needed help there... EXCEPT when I bought this hard drive... AFTER I had picked it out... the guy asked me to say he recommended it to me...? I guess they get a commission... but they don't apparently want to work for it... I mean... what's the point of a SS drive? I thought I was getting something a little more reliable than styluses flicking around constantly.... seems that would be EASY to do with no moving parts... I'm friggin stressed... the thing literally never worked... I got it to upload the data from the hard drive... and I never got a single piece out of it.

The only major thing I would change would be upgrading the RAM to DDR4-3600 since that's the sweetspot for third gen Ryzen CPUs on memory speed. You could also go with a cheaper B450 motherboard if you wanted, but with the budget it seems you have here I don't think that's necessary. You also don't need those extra fans you included. The case you chose comes with three already.  You have a lot of flexibility when it comes to storage and you'll be able to use both M.2 and 2.5" SATA SSDs. Our Inland SSDs are a good value overall and I'm a fan of the Crucial drives I've used.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 63 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 248 Consumer Tech 68 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 69 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 78 Off Topic 16 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 28 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

If you wish to go with Intel, I would probably suggest looking for a motherboard that has WiFi built in than using a PCI-e adapter for wireless, it will most likely be a cheaper route. You could easily cut the power supply price in half with something such as https://www.microcenter.com/product/485312/powerspec-650-watt-80-plus-bronze-atx-semi-modular-power-supply and put the extra money towards a better video card.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TheITDad ✭✭ May 2020 Hello Phantom, assuming  you wanted to stay intel instead of swapping to Ryzen I put together a build for you that comes to 1992 bucks pre tax.  But I left some wiggle room in selecting a pretty beefy 360 AIO and getting a 1tb nvme drive as well as a 2tb spinning drive for storage.  All of which could be toned down to bring the price down to something closer to 1850 to allow for a windows key or for tax to not take you as far over 2k.  I also put you on the newest intel 10th gen because for 50$ more can get you what is essentially a 9900k in the new 17-10700k as well as a wifi z490 mobo.  Kept the case because you had a really solid choice in the lancool 2.  Hope this helps with your choices and have fun building.

It often matches or comes the i7 and i9 CPUs in gaming, or comes very close.  If you're making this build specifically for gaming, I'd drop down to either the 10600k or a Ryzen 5 3600X and upgrade your GPU to something like a 2070 Super. The mid-range CPUs are more than sufficient for gaming even on the very high-end cards, and being able to put more money into your GPU will give you better performance overall.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Phantom ✭ May 2020 TSTonyV said: Along with what the previous two commenters said, I'd like to make the point that for a gaming machine, the new Intel i5-10600k is actually a really compelling option.

The Inland SSDs are perfectly good and considering that they're usually a fair bit cheaper than the Samsung, that's the direction I'd personally go.  As for power supplies, there's a pretty wide variety of good power supplies available you can choose from. EVGA's Supernova Series and the Seasonic Focus series of power supplies are both good options, among others. We actually have a guide on how to choose a power supply here: https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/2872/how-to-choose-your-parts-part-5-the-power-supply I think it'd be worthwhile to read through. I'm not familiar with the power supply the TheITDad listed in his build, but it appears it's not a pwoer supply we carry anymore.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 63 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 248 Consumer Tech 68 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 69 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 78 Off Topic 17 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?
