    Difficulty Booting Past BIOS Splash Screen

    Update: I took all of my storage drives out of the case and connected them directly to the SATA cables on the MOBO and connected each to SATA power cables from my PSU. Doing this, I was able to get all of my drives recognized by the BIOS and boot to windows quickly and all worked great. When I...

    Difficulty Booting Past BIOS Splash Screen

    So actually, given that I couldnt get the drives spinning on power up, the other day i tried disconnecting the SATA power cable from the hot swap board, and connected the SATA adapter I bought to the hot swap board, powering the board from a wall outlet (which isnt a great idea but I had to...

    Difficulty Booting Past BIOS Splash Screen

    Update: I ordered a powered SATA 3 to USB adapter so that I could plug my two hard disk drives into my computer as an external hard drive, and both HDDs opened up and read perfectly fine. So its not a hardware issue with my HDDs. That leaves only two options as I see it. 1. There is a BIOS...

    Difficulty Booting Past BIOS Splash Screen

    Windows 10 and up to date. For the last week, I hit the power button on my pc and it wont boost past the spinning circles on my BIOS splash screen. My OS is on my NVME m.2 card on my mobo. If I shut the power off, and disconnect my hot swap SATA drives (2) HDDs, (1) SDD then turn it back on...

    Windows 10 Lag and Stutter on Startup

    The only thing I can think of that possibly could have caused this, is I put a program directly into the windows startup folder hoping i could get it to open on startup correctly. I couldnt, and deleted it out of the folder after about a week. Perhaps that could be causing the error somehow?

    Windows 10 Lag and Stutter on Startup

    Didnt have any suspicion of a drive, though it could be I suppose. My OS is on a Samsung 980 Pro NVME SSD gen 4 installed about 8 months ago. Though I have 2 HDDs and 1 M4 Crucial SSD that is 12 years old. I pulled that out yesterday and will see if there are any differences. After you...

    Windows 10 Lag and Stutter on Startup

    Preface: I'm sadly reaching an age where I have less desire to fix this stuff on my own for hours to prove that I don't need help :( For the last month, when I boot up my pc (I have the latest version on Windows 10), windows will startup, but when I move my mouse it will freeze every few...

    Windows Stuck Loading Loop

    Okay, so I officially have everything working now, including all three drives. What ended up working was switching the SATA cables from SATA6G_Ports 1, 2, and 3 on my motherboard to SATA6G_Ports 4, 5, and 6. Really pretty strange... Is it possible that these ports are damaged? Is there any way...

    Windows Stuck Loading Loop

    So the system recognized the HDDs after i got the new PSU hooked up and up until power cycled my SSD abd i swapped the SATA cables around. The HDDs worked too, as when i got it to boot early on they still showed booted with the SSD. If there is a corrupted bootloader on them, how can I solve...

    Windows Stuck Loading Loop

    TRAVM: I have had issues with my M4 Crucial SSD a couple times before where it would stop being recognized by the system, and thus I couldn't boot windows. The solution to this was I would take it out and power cycle it by connecting it to SATA power only and not SATA data for 20 minutes once or...

    I'll reach out to them, the funny thing though is I think I purchased in in June of 2012 if I remember correctly. I got it to turn on again and then had sort of an epiphany as to what the cause might be... I have been using wifi outlets for everything in my office for about 6 months so that...

    970 EKWB compatible with GTX 1080?

    I currently have 2 EVGA Gtx 670 gpus running in SLI which are watercooled using EK Waterblocks (I built the rig 6 years ago). When I got around to cooling my cards only 2-3 years ago, it was hard to find blocks for the 670s because the 900 series cards were most current. Due to the fact that...
