I just recently had my OCZ Vertex 2 60GB crash on me and after a week or so, I had OCZ cross-ship me a new one and I am back in business with my upgraded Samsung 830 128GB as my new main SSD and the new OCZ V2 as a secondary drive.
The reasons why I am posting is that I have been having issues(twice in three days) after my computer idles and/or goes into sleep mode, and also sometimes after my computer is put into sleep mode. The issues I am having is that it will not display anything on any of my three screens after "waking up" from sleep mode and I have to restart.
Once I restart, this is where an annoying problem comes up. My mobo almost goes through its complete post but hangs with the Boot Device LED on, something that I know can be caused by lots of different things.
The one thing I have been able to do is force restart(holding down the power button and then clicking it again)multiple times until it finally boots up completely and Resumes Windows.
I have already tested each stick of RAM separately and no problems there. Both GPUs(HD Radeon 6870 x2) are working fine and so is my Core i7 950. The mobo I run is an Asus X58 Sabertooth and I have not updated the Bios on it since I bought it over two years ago. I also did not update the firmware on my Samsung 830 SSD that I bought last week.
Any and all help/suggestions is appreciated. Thanks in advance for your posts.
I cannot really tell IF it fixed the problem because it would only occur after some sleep modes but not all of them. I updated the BIOS with no problems from a middle 2010 to a late 2011 so hopefully that is the problem.
If it does not fix the problem, I will then update the firmware on both of my SSDs and hopefully that will be it.
Thanks again guys, appreciate you taking your time to help me out.
