The case of the Dissappearing SSD Drive..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm baffled that, from time to time, after I have been running my Windows 7 rig below, that my SSD just disappears...

It's annoying me to great end because my Games are installed on this drive, and I have to turn off the computer and turn off the power in the back and press the power button for 10 seconds to get the drive to show up again in the bios.

Any help, suggestions, or fixes for this?

For starters, what SSD is it? It's not listed in your sig rig...

If it's a sandforce SSD, then you've got the sandforce bug and will want to upgrade firmware and "hope" the problem goes away.

It's an ADATA 64 GB SSD (MLC w/ no Sandforce Controller & No Trim Support)

Heard of this with SF-2281 based SSDs, try switching the SATA cable and switch the SSD to another port for starters.

You might also want to try the LPM fix.

Thanks mate, I think you are correct the port must be bad, because every time I switch my sata cables around some other device starts acting weird. Probably the mother board. I don't have any extra SATA cables, or I'd switch those out for new ones, hard to believe it's just a cable though. The tough part will be trying to find which one is bad..
