When I open the computer through BIOS and the new SSD is connected and go to prioritizing drives, it will immediately crash the computer. When I try taking my HDD out of the SATA port and using only the new SSD, the computer crashes on boot. When I first put power to the new SSD after the computer was already booted, it installed some drivers but that was the only trace of recognization Ive seen since I bought it. Im using a Biostar T-series mobo and an Intel i5 Sandy Bridge CPU. Im not great with computers so I dont know what information is needed for this problem so if I need to provide anymore, please let me know. Thanks!

Ive been reading a lot about BIOS not recognizing an SSD but I cant find anything about having an SSD as the only SATA input causing the computer to simply crash. Any ideas or do I need to go ahead and RMA it?

I would try the SSD on another computer if possible, also trying another SATA cable could help.
When it fails to work on two machines you should RMA it.

What is the model number of your Biostar T Series motherboard?

Thanks for the replies guys but I did a CMOS reset which let me use BIOS without my computer crashing, turned on AHCI, installed Windows fresh on my new SSD and wiped my old HDD clean. Now things are running great.
