Detecting drives; Done, No Drives Found - Error and Slow startup

Hey.

When I start up my PC everything goes very slowly, things "chops" or lagged as most say.

It comes up a menu that says:


JMicron Technology Corp.. PCI Express to SATA1 HOST Controller ROM v1.02
Copyright © 2005-2010. JMicron Technology Corp..

Detecting drives; Done, No Drives Found.

-

Have tried most but I find no solutions to this problem, if there is anyone who knows anything about this or can help me, please comment on what I should do.

Thank you!

*

When I get into the desktop, everything quickly, and I have no problems there ..

What could it be?

That message would indicate that you have an add on card installed inside your desktop PC that adds SATA ports.

Do you?

Mind you, without your System Specs I am just stabbing in the dark.

hello Daqueh and welcome to Seven Forums. First it would be very helpful if we knew what hardware you have and whether you have a Desktop or a laptop. At the bottom of your last post, in the bottom left, click 'My System Specs' you will find a link there to edit system specs. Fill it out as completely as possible. To see what we would like, in this post, click my system specs and see mine.

What it seems to me is you are seeing the post screen for a J micron sata controller. If there is nothing connected to it, you can disable it in BIOS. I would assume your drives are connected to your chipset's controller. If that is the case, you can disable the J Micron controller in bios. Your Manual will tell you which ports are controlled by your chipset and which are controlled by the J Micron controller. If you disable the J Micron controller, nothing connected to it will work. If later you connect a drive to one of the ports controlled by the J micron controller, just enable it in BIOS. If I misunderstood your problem, pleas let us know.

The red arrows are the Intel sata Ports, the black arrow are the J Micron ports. Connect your drives to the red ports marked 14. If nothing is connected to the ports with the black arrow, disable the controller in bios under sata controllers.

The startup is still really slow, only the startup, all the things at the startup loads REALLY slowly.

Do I have to edit some settings in the BIOS or something?

I don't know anything.

Please help if you can.

Thank you!

Here is another picture of your board. Find the sata data cable (the small one) attached to your SSD. Trace it back to where it is connected to your motherboard. It should be connected to one of the ports where the black arrow is pointing. Let us know which port it is connected to.
