    Ever since I installed windows 10 pro cleanly on my Pro 13 i5, it is a lot quieter and does not go into senseless bouts of fan activity when idle.

    I'm at a bit of a loss with my Pro 13. After a seemingly successful clean install of Windows 10, it seems my ssd has died. It's still reported in the bios as '128gb' but absolutely nothing will see it. I'm apprehensive about ordering a new drive and potentially waste more money if it doesn't work. Current drive is the Samsung mzntd128hagm. I've tried 'power cycling' it with no luck.

    Really frustrated.

    I have the same drive, working on Windows 10 for quite some time now, so I can confirm is not something related to Windows 10. Have you tried with a live Linux CD, just to see if the drive is there and you can recover/wipe the partitions?

    Nothing detects the drive. Ubuntu Live/GParted can't see it, nor can the windows partition tool. I'm fairly sure the drive is dead. I've ordered a Samsung 850 as someone in the comments said they'd fitted it to their Pro 13. I'm not massively hopeful though.

    The drive was dead. Fitted a Samsung 850 EVO M.2 and everything is back up and running again!

    Looks like my Vaio is on the verge of death. The fan rattles tremendously inside the chassis louder than a leaf blower and vibrates the whole machine along with constant crashes and reboots that I can probably attribute to overheating. T'was a good ride Vaio.

    You may need to clean up the fan and change the termal paste

    I was thinking that, but I also kind of use the issue to rationalize a new purchase.

    When the fan goes haywire, the only way to solve it is a hard power off. Thankfully, it boots up quick still.

    I don't suppose anyone knows where I can find a reasonably priced genuine replacement battery in the UK?
