Hi there, I have an MSI GX740-235US running Win 7 Ultimate. I bought a 120GB OCZ Vertex 2 for it a couple of months ago. I've been having this interesting problem for some time now, and it seems that it's getting worse (although it may just be me)

Here's the problem: Oftentimes when I start my laptop, I'll get something on my screen that says something along the lines of "no boot device. Insert proper boot device". The only way I know to fix it is by going into the BIOS and switching from AHCI mode to IDE, let Windows BSOD on startup then switch it back to AHCI and it'll work.

I used to not mind it happening every once in a while, but like I said before, it seems to be doing it more often and not only is it annoying, but it's getting me worried that the SSD will die on me or something.

I appreciate any help :wink:

Have you tried putting the old drive back in and seeing if that fixes the problem? if so the drives likely bad, and I would RMA it.

I haven't put the old one back in, but I do know that it never happened when I had it.
