Just bought new Corsair PSU cables. 2 harddrives not being detected. Help me!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, just purchased new Power supply, individually sleeved (white) cables from corsair (here) for my Corsair AX850 power supply:
http://www.corsair.com/en/power-supply-units/psu-accessories-1/professional-series-ax850-ax750-ax650-individually-sleeved-modular-cables-white.html

I installed these into my FULLY FUNCTIONAL COMPUTER, and rebooted. NOW, 2 of my hard drives ARE NOT being detected.

I just re-opened the PC and the 4 SATA cables are plugged in AS IS the 4 DATA cables. 2 of them are being detected, but the 2 others are NOT.

Any advice? The only thing I changed was the SATA cables.

Is there something in BIOS I can do? Or is my best bet using the SATA cables from the 2 working drives and testing the other drives with these? I didn't change data cables so.

Please help

Try unplugging the cables and plugging them back in. Then,look in bios to see if they are listed. You can test the cables on you other drives also.

OK, I left the SATA cables plugged in and DID NOT touch them.

I did however switch the 2 data cables from the "working" or detected drives to the other drivers that were NOT being detected.

NOW, those 2 drivers ARE being detected.

So I thought it was the data cables. I unplugged those "two bad" data cables and plugged two, fresh ones in, to the same ports on the motherboard.

Nope. Still NOT being detected in BIOS. BUT, they are detected in windows??? What gives??

*I am plugging these into the SATA III ports. the 2 working drivers are in SATA III ports 0 and 1 on my motherboard.

Ok, just to clarify , it seems 2 of my ports on my motherboard aren't picking up those drivers and I'm not sure why.

SATA 3_0 and SATA 3_1 are picking up 2 of my drives but it seems SATA A3 and SATA A4 are NOT working for my other 2 drives:

*I am not using any of the SATA II ports.
