Problems With New build

Hi,
I'm having some problems with my finished new build.

First off, sometimes when I'm on the computer if just suddenly shuts down and my HDD is not recognized anymore. I can usually fix this by just unplugging and plugging back in the SATA cable in the hdd.

I've also encountered a time when my top fan stopped spinning. And i used the same method to fix that as well.

I have a
1) WD blue 1tb HDD
2) fractal design top fan connected to the fractal design fan controller in the case.
3)ASUS M5A97 R2.0 motherboard

Thanks for the help

  1. It could be either the motherboard or your power supply. What unit do you have? What's the rest of your build?

    Might try a different SATA port - also make sure you have the latest BIOS and mobo drivers
  4. Ok, I still have not updated the mobo driver , so I'll try that. Right now its running fine after I switched sata ports been on for 8 hours with no issues. Hopefully it stays like that
  5. Will keep fingers crossed for you ;)
