    THings to check:

    1. The Sata cable
    2. The Power Cable
    3. Change the port on the motherboard
    4. If you have more than one SATA controller (such as intel and Marvell) try them both

    If all that fails, try it in another machine, or laptop.

    Its amazing what a loose cable can cause. I fiddled with my dog last weekend. And played Dayz with no problems next day I played battlefield 3. and after a few minutes I got blue screened and system reboot.

    Was fine on desktop but soon as i run the game it did it again.

    Checked cables and one of my pcie power cables to gpu moved. Must have knocked it. Scared me tp death as i don't have the money tp replace anything at the moment.

    Shirty I have no issue with your Signature. I didn't proof read my post so can't be helped.

    Im sure someone else will post something funny enough to be Sig Quoted.
