it sounds weird but it is what is happening. plz help me
I bought some things to build a new computer, so I started to put it together and when I realized after start flashing sometimes the screen with the logo of tuf, freezes and I can not do anything or enter BIOS
but if I remove the HDD I can enter the bios normally move things etc.
I thought it was because sata ports not working, but I have a Sata DVD that works correctly on any port.
What I might suggest that the problem is the HDD but if I plug in another computer functions properly.
More about :asus sabertooth 990fx freeze boot connect hdd
if i put the DVD on the motherboard without the HDD, the computer runs ok, and if i put the Windows DVD in on the DVD can enter and see the instalation etc. but when i enter on the partition screen cant continue because isnt any hdd connected on it.
but if i connect the HDD and the DVD the mother freezes on the motherboard start screen.
i try setting the sata ports on AHCI and IDE with the same result.
The same thing happened to me just before my hdd crashed. 2 hdd of mine crashed like this. So if you ever get a chance to use the hdd on other system I'll advice you to backup the data from that hard drive.
I tried a lot of things with my drive when it was about to crash but nothing helped. So it is better you go for a replacement. Also you can use the PCB from an identical drive. Since the hdd is not physically damaged there is a chance that changing the PCB would help.
