Here is the problem:
I recently built my computer. I put a motherboard that has 6.0 GB sata. When I turned my computer on, my hard drive didn't show up when it booted. I went into the bios, and it wasn't there. So I restarted my computer, and it showed up in bios and loaded fine. But now every time I shut down my computer, I have to restart it in order for my hard drive to load and show up in bios. Other than having to restart the computer, it works fine, no other issues.
Here is what I'm already tried:
1. Reinstalled windows 7 and reformatted
2. Made sure my bios was updated
3. Made sure the sata connections were in the correct spots and also switched them up to see if that would work, nope.
4. Did a windows 7 repair, didn't help things once I restarted again.
My best guess if there might be a compatibility issue with my hard drive and my new motherboard. Maybe the 6 GB sata won't work right with my hard drive?
I contacted Biostar and they just recommended a return. It's strange because my mobo clear cmos jumper is all messed up. Right now my computer is working in the clear cmos jumper setting....if I put it in the default position, my computer won't turn on. So something clearly is wrong with the mobo, it can't be the hard drive. So I guess I'm stuck with having to return my mobo and get a new one, but thanks for trying to help me guys.
