Hi!

I (as in a friend with a computer of which I have responsibility for) have a problem. The motherboard, Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R, does not recognize the SSD (Intel x-25 80GB), and this happened suddenly. It has been working just fine for the better half of a year.

What we've tried is a CMOS-reset, and all the S-ata slots and cable-combinations possible.
There is an another drive, an HDD which works fine. But windows is not installed on that one. The SSD doesn't work no matter if the HDD is connected or not.

These are expensive equipment, I would very much like to see a fix for this.

Yours hopefully,

Njure

I suspect that the Controller on the SSD may have failed preventing the Motherboard Controller from communicating with it. Have the SSD tested to see if this is so.

What about in the BIOS? Any sign of the SSD?

OK, a valid suggestion. I'll see to it that it gets tested, and whether that is Intel's job or the seller's job I'll have to find out as well.

No, no sign of the SSD in BIOS, thus the "BIOS can't find the SSD". Nor are you able to boot from the SSD.

Sincere thanks to the both of you for your concern!
