I bought a new Kingston SSD for my notebook, pluged the ssd on the computer and instal windows normally.I used windows for a couple hours and turned my computer off.

A few hours later I turned my computer back on and I got this message:

"Boot Device Not Found"
"Please install an operating system on your hard disk."
"Hard Disk (3F0)"

- So, I plugged my old HDD and windows boot normally (so no cable problems)

- Pluged de SSD on a case for external HD and worked fine (No SSD problem on the connectors)

Later I did a test and plugged the SSD back on the notebook and suddenly the windows start boot, but after a few seconds a quick blue screen comes up and reboot my computer and the same error message.

- So, I put the old HDD on the computer and formatted the SSD (so I can make a new clean instal)

But now the computer does not recognize my SSD when I am installing windows. When I use an external case it recognize normally.

Just to make this simple I installed windows on my new SSD and afterturning off and on my computer, it doesn't recognize my ssd but on an external hd case it recognize .

Can anyone help me please?

Your English is better than many of the native speakers on this board. If I were you I would already be on the phone to Kingston. This is definitely not normal behavior and being under warranty you need to be careful not to void that warranty.

What ram1009 said that sounds a lot like you have a bad drive HDD act a lot the same when they don't work I wouldn't do anything else until you speak with Kingsington a RMA sounds like it is in order

Hi guys,

Thanks for all the quick answers. Yesterday I did a last test which was put SSD in another computer and guess what? The other PC recognizes.
So, on that pc I installed windows and put back again on my notebook, which started to recognizes normally again. So i reinstalled windows I am using the SSD normally.

I am still going watch for a few days, but that seems to solve the problem.

Just a heads up -

I have investigated firmware updates for a variety of SSDs and it appears that this is an issue that can be corrected with firmware updates either from the computer manufacturer or from the hard drive manufacturer. Also check to see if there is a BIOS update. Remember, SSD's are a relatively 'new' technology and there may be an issue where the system boards have to be 'taught' to accept them.

Best of luck all -
