Freezing Issues occurs when running 2HDD + 1 SSD


Brought a new intel 330 SSD recently for my 4.5 years old computer. However after I installed it and running it together with another 2HDD, freezing problems would starts to occur. Right now my temp. solution to run 3 HDD is to try my luck to keep restarting until it gets into the windows without any freeze. Below are some of the freezing/stuck cases.

#01- Booting up the computer it get stuck at the loading windows logo screen
#02- Whenever i do a restart of computer, 80% chances i will get stuck at the loading of windows logo screen
#03- Desktop will freeze sometimes even when booted to the desktop screen.

Therefore would like to understand whats the problem lies behind, is it because my motherboard unable to run 2 or more HDD? Thanks guys

  1. could be a bios issue with your mb or as chipset issue with a mb that old...all i can say is try and put the newest bios on the mb and use the newest mb chipset drivers from intel. in the bios also try and set every port to sata only and see if that helps. if not
    you may want to think of putting in a sata card and running the ssd and hard drive off of a newer card and two data drives off of the onboard sata.
  2. Bios update would be good, also check the firmware of the actual ssd.
  3. Ok guys shall try update my bios and chipset post back here again thanks

    Edited: Guys, have tried updating both the bios and chipset but the problems still occurs. btw my SSD is up to date as well. Right now even i tried running 1HDD and 1SSD, the freezing may occurs too. Is it the SSD im using wasnt really compatible with my MB? thanks
