New computer won't boot from SSD, Won't restart on its own
by Aquadingo - 12/21/12 8:26 AM
My boyfriend just built a new computer from scratch and we have a Samsung 840 series SSD and an ASUS motherboard (along with many other things but I think for the purposes of this forum those two things are the important pieces of hardware) and have successfully loaded Windows 7 as the OS onto the SSD.
Now here's my issue: whenever we are prompted to reboot the computer it will start to shut down like it should to restart but after a couple of seconds it never reboots, it just shuts all the way down and we have to manually turn the computer back on. In addition to that, every time the computer is started up it says "no hard disk is detected" and to boot the OS we have to go into BIOS and select the SSD to boot from manually. We also receive an error along the lines of "overclocking failed" although to this point in time we have not attempted to overclock anything.
Everything is connected and inserted properly according to the installation manuals that came with the equipment as far as we know.
Any suggestions or answers would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks for reading.
