I recently bought a SanDisk Ultra SSD (120GB, SATA 2.0) and put it in my 5 year old HP Compaq 6720s with SATA 1.0. It worked fine for two months. Then I noticed the error message "ATA revalidation failed" when resuming from Suspend, then all files in one folder suddenly became corrupted, and then on next resume, the disk failed and the laptop wouldn't boot. I took it out and connected it as external on USB, the system would not even see the disk.
I got the disk replaced, it works fine so far, but again it's showing the "ATA revalidation failed" msg when resuming from Suspend. Is it possible that SATA 1.0, SATA 2.0 plus Mint are somehow not working together? I found a thread where someone recommended changing ATA setting in BIOS to ASPI as the solution to a similar problem. Is there a setting in my BIOS i could change that would fix this conflict?
Many thanks in advance for your help!
