Acer T3-715

The PC is currently dead. It stuck at "acer" logo right after power on.

Some say that the cause of the trouble is the SSD drive, such as :
It does not run,
It has a bad sector,
It is stuffed full, and so on.

How to check out this SSD whether it is a good or bad one?

Is this the OS drive?
What specific drive is it?
Dare I ask if there is an actual backup of the data on it?

Thank you.

"Is this the OS drive?"
I am not sure. I suppose so. The OEM said so.

"What specific drive is it?"
It is a Lite On SSD Model CV1-8B128

Backup
Yes. There is a backup stored on D: drive.
But it seems to be of no use.
The whole PC is dead. All USB ports & DVD drive & others. . . all dead.

"D drive".
Often, this is just a second partition on the same physical drive.
Given a physically dead drive, this is useless.

But a 'backup' that you don't know how to access or recover from is useless.

There are two hard drives on this PC.
C : is an SSD.
D: is a SATA3
