trouble with my computer, need help fixing it!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ok, borrowing my bros profile to post this. My computer that I built last year was running fine until this morning, no idea what the heck happened but it failed to start properly, it would cycle through the normal windows it shows on start up until it gets to the one where it shows the Asus logo and after that it would go to a blank screen with the only thing on it being a little flashing cursor. I don't know what the heck happened. I tried to figure out how to enter safe mode but the UEFI bios on my board as far as I could find had no option for it and google didn't help. So I tried removing the battery from the motherboard to no effect. Then I tried updating the bios, which worked and the computer will now start but now none of the case fans will run, only the one on my CPU cooler will. I also noticed in the bios that my SSD is no longer showing up as a boot device right after I did the bios update, so I thought maybe the SSD is toast or is corrupted so why would it be working now then? I just got it running so haven't confirmed if anything is possibly corrupted. Does anyone have any idea what might have gone wrong and how I can get my fans going again and confirm that what ever went wrong is repaired?

It means there is no HDD with an OS to boot from. check your HDD power and sata cables.

Check if you have the Marvell sata controller enabled. also disable all fan control to see if the fans will start.

I had a similar issue with a new build like this, pc working fine then all of a sudden just wouldnt boot and no hard drive would show in the boot options. I think I put it down to faulty SSD boot drive, I would try another hard drive if you can.

If there is no HDD(SSD in this case) to boot from then how is my computer running since my OS is on it.? I've pushed all the cables in to check if there were any loose one and found nothing.

As for the Marvell sata controller I don't know how to do that. I know more then most people when it comes to computers, even to build them and maintain them to a degree but still quite the novice. In my bios I noticed all the chassis fans listed as N/A.

I have no other drives to try I'm affraid, its booting now and working fine as far as I can tell aside from the fans.

Also another tidbit of info to mention, my storage/game HDD is now showing in the boot menu in the bios, it never did before to my recollection.

It sounds like when you reset the BIOS, it set your HDD as the boot device in place of your SSD. I take it you had an install of windows on your HDD?

Can you see the SSD in your OS that loads up? if so I would try Properties - tools tab, error check, and let it check the files on the SSD. If that comes up clean, then go into the BIOS and try setting the SSD as the boot drive in the boot options and see if it boots. If not, you can change back to the HDD. till you get more options to try.

Also, to get into safe mode, you usually need to press F8 immediately after the BIOS boot screen (assuming WIN 7 - I dunno if WIN 8 is different)

There are no programs related to the OS on my HDD, it only is used for storage, games and various other small programs like itunes and such. My SSD has the OS on it and all the drivers and programs related to my computer. The SSD as of right now isn't even showing up in the boot options. I just set the computer to do a check of the SSD on restart so will be attempting that right now.

hmmm it is possible it booted off the SSD then - it would have skipped by the HDD if there's no OS on it. I'd just set the BIOS to boot from SSD then, and try running a repair on the OS if its still giving you bother. ALso, as you reset your BIOS (by removing the battery) and updated it, you should go through each setting screen and set all your BIOS options again. That'll be why the FANs aren't showing / working, you'll probably have to set them up in the BIOS somewhere. smile.gif

Edit : just another thought, if the SSD isn't showing in the BIOS, check that all the SATA controllers are enabled - thats what Phenomanator53 would have been alluding to asking about the Marvell Controller - resetting the BIOS settings may have disabled a controller, and "hidden" your drive.
