New SSD Hangs & missing download button?

Esteemed Contributor III

Just bought my SSD drive...installed win 7 64-bit. everything went fine, and yes it's a little faster...but it keeps hanging for no reason, which in the end slows everything down, and I am back to square one. Stays there stuck for about 10 seconds for so...[seams like forever]. I really need this fixed. It's a real pain in the behind. Just got it, so I still can return this thing. If I can't get this fixed I rather stick with my old sata drive that didn't give me those problems.

weird thing...I am trying to download the new firmware and I can't see a download button. I also can't see the toolbox download button.

What am I missing?

actually don't even see the firmware update. I guess I don't need to update?

or what?

Oh my drive is: SSDSA2M080G2GN

OS: Windows 7 64-bit

if there isn't a firmware update for it, what else is there to fix this problem?

New firmware and toolbox have been taken off the site until Intel have ironed out the problems. See announcements on the Solid State Drives forum page.

thanks, and I thought I lost my mind.

still nothing else I can do to prevent the freeze/hang of the drive?
