asus R3E won't boot

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
one of my computers has an asus rampage 3 extreme which i had for at least a year now w/no problems. today i start it and boot sequence immediately stops at “rog” logo and just hangs there indefinitely. i press 'delete' and it takes 30 seconds for it enter bios..what on earth could this be?

Reset the bios or switch to BIOS 2 and try booting and see if it works.

ok, so i took the whole rig apart, unplugged everything and putting it all back piece by piece testing as i went....mobo is fine.

a cheap ssd (OCZSSD2-1ONX32G) that i bought 6 months ago is causing the boot failure; it does the same thing when i try it on other computers.

can these things (ssd's) be fixed? or do they go in the garbage?

Check and see if there is a firmware upgrade for the SSD.

No, you need another PC that can see it and perform the upgrade bud.
