Internal Hard Drive - Issues

Recommended Posts

Recently, my internal hard drive has stopped being recognized by my motherboard/computer.  I fixed it this most recent time by unplugging it from my motherboard and plugging it into another slot on the motherboard.

 

Best guess with little info?

No idea if this will help...

 

I had a similar problem with my SSD (no idea if normal HD can have the same issue.). After calling customer support, they told me to update my firmware (due to some issue after x amount of hours of the ssd being used). However, prior to that... they told me some instructions to at least get the ssd recognized....

 

by keeping the computer idle in the bios (I unplugged the sata cable, kept power cable only in) for a while then try again. After that, updated firmware.. was good to go. I do not remember the exact amount of time I did the process, maybe overnight.

Cool I'll take a look at that.  In the mean time, I'm going to do two things:

 

1.)  Take the hard drive out and bring it to a friend to test on his machine for any errors.

2.)  Purchase a 2TB hard drive replacement. (Excited about this one).
