Can you give further details about the hdd and your system?
Intel Core i3 530
DH55TC Media Motherboard
Corsair 4g DDR3 1600 CMX4GX3M2A2600C8
HIS Radion HD 5770
Antec Earth Watts 650
Windows 7 64
To clarify, I've another identicle system built. I'm on it now. The only difference between the two is the case and PSU. One thing the tech did mention was that my BIOS was "0020" and I needed to update it to "0028".
Thanks for your help.
If you use the hd in the other system do you get the same problem?
Also I can see that your ram is corsair I just hope that it is compatible with the processor and motherboard.
The corsair ram is running fine in the other machine. It says compatible with i5 and i7 and does great with i3.
I haven't had this long but, last night I noticed that my ram voltage was @ 1.5v when it calls for 1.65. I didn't see a way to change it. I didn't spend much time on it, I'll look later.
I haven't tried the HD in the other system. what I may do, is Format it in my system and then put it in the other. I'll try that today and post the results.
