Re: T440s is killing Samsung 840 pro SSD's

you can use microsoft driver which is msahci.
you should be able to choose update driver and install "Intel(R) 8 Series SATA AHCI Controller - 9C03" or "Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller". they are basically the same as long as the driver file name is msachi. but since this is a standard driver, performance may not be as good as intel drivers.

Hi Bowen, I've updated to "Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller". There doesn't appear to be any noticeable difference in performance. I'll clone my HDD to the new Samsung 850 Pro soon - fingers crossed. :)

I have a T440s as well and have to report it shipped with the Samsung PM851 SSD which today, after little use (80 hours or so), has died. With the same symptoms..

Is anyone familliar with this number? is the PM851 a Samsung 850 EVO/PRO?
