I have an asus p5n32-e sli board.
I really like it and it has worked well untill recently when i sarted have issues with the sata ports

It will all work fine and then it will just drop a sata port and after a restart or two it is back and working fine. This seems to happen from time to time.

Is there anyway to fix this ?
any idea what is causing this ?

Thanks in advance

Have you changed in the bios the PCIe frequency from auto/100 to anything else?
