Hello, this is my 2nd thread here and it's about my recently purchased SSD.
It's been over a moth since I configured my SSD and BIOS via your forum guidence and today, after a game crash, my twin bro pressed the PC's rr button only to come yelling at me that it was stuck on Windows logo loading screen
After a Safe-Mode rr I noticed my 840 EVO SSD didn't had AHCI mode enabled anymore. Soon I entered Award's Software BIOS and all of my "Integrated Peripherals" section reverted to a defeault IDE configuration. I tried switching it back to AHCI and after a save & exit my pc enters a continous restarting cicle with "Your PC encountered a problem and it needs a restart" thing until it has the defeault IDE configuration mentioned before.

BIOS : Award Software & Pheonix version 4 (I think)
Operatiing System : Windows 8.1 Pro x64
SSD : 500GB EVO SSD
SSD Software : Samsung Magician with a recently updated firmware from 4.3.0 to 4.40
SSD Slot : GSATA3_6
Motherboard : Gigabyte 770TA UD3 ( http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=... )
Edit : Changed slot from GSATA3_6 to GSATA3_7 and I have the same problem

Check your boot priority in your bios. If you are trying to boot from the SSD, then make it the first boot device if it isn't.

Press the f8 key during power on boot up and then select Disable automatic restart on System Failure. And try booting again. It will halt at the error message instead of rebooting itself

It honestly doesnt sound like you installed the SSD with the ports in AHCI mode if it boots to safe mode ok in IDE mode.

Move the SSD to the lowest numbered AMD sata port (please consult your manual) and please link to the correct board that you have. The one you listed to does not have sata3 or Gsata ports; its an amd 770 chipset which is only sata2

I am very sorry about the MB confusion, I edited my post and will try your steps.
Edit : Problem Solved ! It seems you were right so I reinstalled my Windows 8.1 but before DVD boot I switched to AHCI mode in BIOS, now I'm back at full speed. Thank You !
