SSD bios settings help.

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I recently overclocked my 2600k to 4.8ghz, and it was the idle temps were jumping around from 40-50c. I decided to go into my bios and load default settings like an idiot, forgetting that I had to set my ssd settings again because that is my boot drive.

I have a GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3P-B3

Here is a picture of my BIOS settings


Not sure if this is in the right section or not, please move if it is not.
Thanks.

Hmm...

Well, if you're not using the gray SATA ports, then you can disable the "GSATA3 Controller".

Beyond that, I think everything looks good!

using the settings above I can get it to start up but it says my C\\.......desktop isn't available, I can see my mouse but not click anything, background doesn't load up only the task bar. I might just reinstall windows since everything else is on my main hdd.

I think I know the reason why, when I set my SSD up I had to use Regedit to change the registry of a lot of things on my C to another drive to keep them from taking up space on my SSD. I have a feeling this reset itself, and it's now searching for something on my SSD which is actually locating on my other hard drive.

Resetting the BIOS cannot do that, though. The changes made in the registry can't be undone or reset by resetting the BIOS back to factory defaults.

However, I think the fact that you went into the registry to do that might be the cause of this. What did you change? Can you detail it for me?

The changes in my registry did not reset, I used this tutorial when I installed windows.

http://www.overclock.net/ssd/664738-...secondary.html

I fixed the mouse issue, my razer mouse wouldn't click, plugged in my old mouse and it works fine. Still now background. The specific error I get is
"C:\\windows\\system32\\config\\systemprofile\\Des ktop refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer or on a network. Check to to make sure the disk is properly inserted."

I wish that guide would be taken down. It seems like every single time someone has a problem that's similar to yours, it's due to following that damn guide.

I recommend formatting, starting over, and then not following that guide. I think it's absolutely unnecessary and always has the potential for causing more problems than it claims to solve. Plus, it over-complicates things.

I absolutely agree. That thread is like a siren calling new SSD users to smash themselves onto the rocks. Really it's entirely unnecessary and throws away performance and is a pain to set up and almost certainly will cause problems down the line. All in the obsessive drive to limit SSD writes.

Hmm, alright. Can't go wrong with reformatting really, knew that was something that would most likely need to happen. The guide was pretty complicated for somebody like me, who had no idea what they were doing at the time. I should be fine from here on out, thanks for the help, really appreciate how quickly people here are willing to help. +rep for that alone.

When you're done formatting and starting over, come back to this thread that you created and we'll help you.

For now, just know that you can move the default locations of any folder inside of C:\\Users\\You without touching the Registry. You can also disable the Paging File too. Plus, you can disable Hibernation which frees up even a little more space. Finally, System Restore (System Protection) can be disabled to free up even more space.

It gets more fun than this, and plus none of it is complicated. I think I'll report that guide and request that the staff consider deleting it. It's doing more harm than good.
