SSD emitting 153 disk error

MemmoSJ

1 month ago

My system drive is a Samsung 850 pro with 256 GB capacity. Total Bytes written is 46,9 TB and IIRC the endurance for the 256 GB version is 150 TBW. My CPU is 4770K although I don't think it's the processor that is at fault (i.e. bad driver) Motherboard is MSI Z87 GD65 Gaming.

When booting it emits 153 error around every minute and continues to about 3 times per fifth minute

When reading Windows Event Viewer there are two different 153 errors. One is read and the other one is write

The one below here is read (28 is Opcode for read)

  • 0000: 0F 01 04 00 04 00 2C 00 ......,.
  • 0008: 00 00 00 00 99 00 04 80 ....™..€
  • 0010: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ........

  • 0020: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ........
  • 0028: 00 00 04 28 ...(

The one below here is write (2A is Opcode for write) The vast majority of 153 errors i get is for write operations

  • 0000: 0F 01 04 00 04 00 2C 00 ......,.
  • 0008: 00 00 00 00 99 00 04 80 ....™..€

(Opcodes source https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCSI_command )

Things that I've tried: Latest bios version (1.C). Updated chipset through MSI's website (version 10.1.1.45 , Released 2018-06-27). Opened up the case to inspect SATA cable and reseated it in both motherboard and SSD. SMART analysis returns no errors. Latest version of Samsung Magician returns no errors and latest firmware is installed. AHCI is enabled in bios.

I've used some of Windows disk repair tools, but none seems to return errors For example: Chkdsk (done when booted so no read only mode) returns no error

I'm starting to think the drive might just be end of life

Cheers for any ideas for possible fixes

Thank you. Tried installing SDI that according to one the answers is a no freeware garbage driver installer. It found several that needs to update. I don't think it will fix the issue, but better drivers are always nice. I've gone through a lot of the steps that OP did, but seemingly to no avail
