SSD Causes BIOS crash

I just finished building my PC, finally got it turned on and into the BIOS...only to have the screen mess up ( a bunch of multicolored bars on the top half of the screen). If I disconnect the SSD, everything works fine. The SSD is definitely freezing the BIOS somehow!!!

I am using a gigabyte GA-p67A-UD4-B3 mobo
SSD in question is samsung 128gb http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=samsung+128gb+ssd&hl=en&prmd=ivnsfd&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&biw=1440&bih=778&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=9875765387459442968&sa=X&ei=MqUOTr33OsuqsALUm9WYCg&ved=0CFwQ8wIwAA

I'm trying to get into my BIOS so I can setup the SSD so that I can install windows 7 on it...

Think the SSD is broken or what?

  1. It seems quite unlikely that the SSD could be interfering with the display from the BIOS.

    What are you using for the display? I'm assuming it's a video card, because P67 doesn't not support on-board video.

    You could try attaching the SSD to different SATA ports - maybe the SATA controller is causing problems?
  2. Try doing a CMOS reset.
