Upon trying pretty much everything I know and what others have advise me without success I decided to come here getting help from you, since there is a lot of knowledge members and I usually come here looking for answers and advices everytime something bad happens with my system.
The issue is as follow - last week my system began freezing without reason and rebooting would make the following message appears "disk boot failure, insert system disc and press enter" and my motherboard (Asus A8N-SLI) wouldn't recognize the HDD. I would left it off for a few minutes and it would work fine, at least until freezing again. The issue got worse and I worked it out by slightly budge the HDD SATA cable where it connects to the motherboard.
However after a few days the issue turned up again. I connected the HDD to the other SATA slots, checked other SATA cables and other HDD but the problem persisted. Checked the power supply's cable and it was working fine and the HDD is also working fine in other computers. I thought it was the motherboard SATA connectors that are damaged since HDD IDE works fine and bought a Delock SATA II PCI Express Card
but it also doesn't recognized the HDD.
Sometimes the DVD drivers
' names on the BIOS are wrongly written, too. Instead of Sony it displays SYNE or POENERR instead of Pioneer or something along the lines.
I no longer have any idea nor does anyone who could help me. What do you guys think? Could it be that the motherboard SATA connecters got damage somewhat? Or the motherboard itself? A few suggestions would be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
