Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!


Strip down your system to run only the bare essentials: one RAM module, the CPU, motherboard, one hard disk, one graphics card (or use onboard graphics if you have it), keyboard, mouse, and one monitor. See how the system behaves. Then add one piece of hardware back at a time until the problem re-occurs. Take notes of what hardware you add and how the system responds to the hardware changes.

As you add and remove hardware, follow these steps for ESD safety:
  1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
  2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
  3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
  4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.


The above probably will not get Windows to start. Windows has issues when switching from AHCI to IDE, but it does not have issues when switching from IDE to AHCI. You will likely have to re-install at this point. We can help you backup your data first, but it is more important to get your computer to POST before worrying about Windows.

Sorry, I remembered backwards. The IDE to AHCI switch requires a registry change before it can be applied.

The AHCI to IDE switch typically does not affect Windows. If you switch back to IDE, a system image should take care of it. If you want, you can re-install Windows and see if AHCI provides a performance boost.

I was running ide, I switched to achi. Saw a whole bunch of crap I never saw before and then it got to loading operating system and it just sat there for two minutes. So I switched back to ide and it also just sat there. I tried several repairs with my repair disk and they both said they failed. Then i messed with bois. Then it wouldn't even boot. *tears* Then i got a message saying errors cause of overclocking (I thought i changed them back to default, but I guess not). Changed my cpu multiplier again. Then it booted fine and i did a system restore to last night and everything is good so far.

HALLELUIAH. Believe it or not today is my birthday and I was so close to having an epic meltdown. Making an image backup right now.

Had you changed them before? Load Setup Defaults in the Exit screen of the BIOS. That should set them back to nominal.
