Hi all expert,
I need some helps here, my intel DG31PR unable detect the SSD 120GB after restart and only when turn off the power and start again it detect SSD.
do you guys got any solution for me?
BIOS Version PRG3110H.86A.0071.2010.0318.1704
Operating System--window 7 pro
SSD--Kingston SSDNOW V300 120GB
Check the current PSU output voltages using tools like HWMonitor of SpeedFan. Over- and undervoltages often lead to devices malfunction.
Check also cabling, bad SATA or power cable may be source of trouble.
This MB (year 2007) have a very limited SATA controller (no AHCI mode support), combined with outdated BIOS this may result in poor SSD support. Some Kingston documents openly states AHCI support as a requirement for different SSD operations: http://www.kingston.com/us/support/technical/kingston-ssd-toolbox.aspx Kingston SSD Toolbox , http://media.kingston.com/support/downloads/603ABBFO_Update_Procedure_051915.pdf http://media.kingston.com/support/downloads/603ABBFO_Update_Procedure_051915.pdf . Looks like its time for upgrade.
