Windows 7: BSOD from pretty much anything

If it's just the SATA port then you shouldn't have to replace the motherboard as long as it's working fine with the SSD plugged into the other SATA port. If more problems start to appear then maybe you'll need to.

As Boozad says mate and looking at the specs there are plenty of SATA ports albeit mostly 3Gbs (6) ones and there are I believe slot cards that can add SATA ports as well https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA

see pic I have seen some that use Marvel controllers too

Urgh... No luck.
Like I said, I unplugged the secondary SSD and the HDD yesterday and plugged my primary SSD in a different SATA port.
It ran fine all day, so I plugged in the HDD to get access to my files. Still no problems, until this morning. When I booted I got an BSOD as soon as I entered Windows.
So I unplugged the HDD to see if that changed anything. It didn't. I got two crashes in quick succession.
One of the crashes didn't result in a BSOD though. The desktop simply froze (as usual) and I got a notification that Windows had stopped working and that I should wait a while to see if it started responding. Then the system rebooted and I got this screen:
Loading Operating System...
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER

So I rebooted and got to start reparation which made me do a system restore, and now I'm back in windows.

So I'm guessing there's nothing left to do now but replace the motherboard and the CPU.

I'm struggling to see any other option at this point.

I just purchased a Intel Core i5 4690K 3,5GHz Socket 1140 processor and a Asus Z97-A motherboard.If this doesn't fix things...

A big thanks to everyone who's chipped in with advice.
I really appreciate it!

Hopefully the problem was the board mate and here are your drivers to save a bit of time as my Asus laptop required quite a bit of fixing using 7 (made for 8) https://www.asus.com/au/Motherboards...Desk_Download/

Thanks guys.

I'm getting the hardware today and I haven't installed a motherboard in about six years I was wondering if you could give me some pointers.
1. Any general tips on the mounting of the hardware part?
2. Should I use the cpu cooler that comes with the processor or the Corsair Cooling Hydro H50CPU I'm using now?
3. When I get everything in place, should I install from the disk that comes with the motherboard or from the link ICIT2LOL kindly provided? There are 83 files there, so should I just pick the latest of each? Do I even need every file?
4. Should I do all of these installations every time I reinstall the system? Like bios for instance, does that stay installed after a complete wipe?

No just be careful to keep yourself grounded from time to time when working inside the case and the cooler I would still use the liquid one the stock stuff is pretty basic

As a general rule the disk that comes with the board usually is well out of date with some of the drivers and it usually contains a lot of bloatware they try get you to install so just the basic stuff mate untick offers from Norton, Google tool bar etc for example and stuff like that.

So what I do is to look at the date on the board's support site for drivers and see what date they were put out, and if they are reasonably dated back some time ago then install from the disk. (They will open out to show the older drivers too and if you install the latest and it is not right then uninstall and install the previous version.


It would be useful to check what BIOS version the board has by checking it in the BIOS screen then checking the global site for any updates - but with that please be careful - check with us if not sure.
The BIOS is a separate chip on the board that you buy and will have the factory installed one anyway. So you could be up for an update.

The thing is to take your time I know it is hard but worth it in the long run.
