Hi there, Welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you checked that the connections are all plugged in on both the SSD and the motherboard.

And that you didn't move or knock anything around inside the case when installing the SSD?

Let us know how you get on,

In addition how closely did you follow these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7?

Be sure to install with all other HD's unplugged, SSD plugged into SATA port 1.
