I put together a new system for myself including the Asus Rampage IV Extreme board, a crucial M4 128GB SSD and a couple 3TB WD drives. The problem I'm having is that I got the system up and running fine, installed the OS (Win 7), updated drivers, got all my games and such installed played them and everything was working great for days.

Then I brought it home (built it at work due to space and tools) on a 2 minute drive with no dropping the case or anything. When I plugged the system back in, it didn't recognize the drive anymore. I tried swapping drives (swapping cables with one of the other drives) and the ssd still was not recognized even though the other drive was. I checked the cables anyway, nothing loose. I also unplugged the computer, let it sit for an hour and nothing. I brought the drive back to work and it's working on a dell we have here with no problems. I did notice that a new bios was posted today, so I'll try updating that. What else should I try?
