System cannot recognize hard drive after crush.

Hi All,

The system is described below:

Biostar TP43D2-A7 motherboard
Intel E8400 CPU
2GB X 4
kingston hybridx 120gb SDD
WD green 2TB HDD
Soundblaster Audigy 2
HD6570 1GB
Antec 380W power supply

The system worked for me for more than 3 years, upgraded several things like RAM and SSD. It became very unstable recently.

System will crush some time, and then the hard drive cannot be recognized by the system. Must power off wait a few seconds, restart and then it works again.

Sometimes it stop working and the HDD light will light up continuously and never stop until you restart, then the same as above, no recognition of hard drive, must power off then on.

I think it might be overheat somewhere? so I checked my CPU, GPU, memory's temperature, seems OK.

Anyone can help me? I appreciate.

  1. Which drive are you talking about? Hard Drive or Solid State?

    If it's the Solid state drive, it is a sure indicator of a failing drive. Backup what you need on it ASAP and RMA it.
    I've had this happen to me a few times, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Even in the BIOS it came and went, eventually it stopped working completely.
  2. It is both of them, the SSD is working fine.

    I changed my mobo, and everything looks fine now. I think it is some capacitors on the old mobo went bad over the past 4 years.

    Thanks for the answer.
