Spoiler and i havent restored it yet, my motherboard: GA-MA-770T-ES3, my friend also use gigabyte mb but i forgot the serial More about : wd10ears capacity detected 0mb bios COLGeek a c 93 G Storage November 19, 2010 4:17:26 PM Did you try a different SATA port and/or cable? m 0 l MrLinux a b G Storage November 19, 2010 5:34:48 PM Check if a BIOS update is available. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
