SSD problems 1 hour down the toilet! HELP!

Recommended Posts

OysterBarron

Ok so got home at 5 and have been trying to sort out my new ssd. Iv'e connected it upto my sata 3 port and have a sata 6gb lead for it. Bios has the mode set to ahic mode or something like that in memory management. In the bios it's not seen, in my computer it's not seen and in disk management it's not coming up as an unallocated drive it's just not there!

 

In intel rst it's not there

 

and in the corsair toolbox i downloaded it's not there!

 

It's there i can see it physically but mentally it's playing tricks on me.

 

What the hell am i missing?

 

what am i doing wrong?

 

this is the worse game of hide and seek i've ever played!

Cables firmly connected on both ends? Try another cable? All the required power?

yeah i've just tried 2 different sata ports i've now just used the sata lead that was connected to my dvdrom drive and used the sata lead that was connected to the ssd on the dvd rom drive. the DVD rom was detected and installed again but the SSD is still not showing.

 

Iv'e set my folder options to show empty drives to no effect. the drive is still missing in action!

 

Does the SSD need a seperate power lead aswell as the sata lead?

...does it have a slot for a 4 pin molex? Maybe that's the issue. MAOR POWER.

 

But I'm like a fly-by-night tech assist here. Someone with more knowledge will likely do you better. What drive is it, exactly?

Just to save you some headaches in the future, if the drive doesn't show up in the BIOS then no amount of software in the world is going to get that drive seen. Keep in mind this obviously does not include USB connected drives.
