Hello all,

I did something very stupid recently. I flashed my BIOS to fix mouse stuttering issues but used the Gen4 BIOS version 2.10. ::palmslap::

I was able to clear the CMOS and use the instant flash to restore the BIOS back the most recent Gen3 BIOS 1.10. When I start the computer it shows the BIOS version is 1.10 and all of the tabs display the normal setting including monitoring cpu temp ect.. except all of my SATA ports show as "not detected". I changed the SATA controller settings back to their defaults (IDE), but still no luck. I checked and all of the SATA connectors are still clicked firmly in place.

Any ideas?

Thanks

first thing you are suppose do after bios flash before booting into windows is to boot to the bios and set it to default setting.

My answers are my opinion only,usually

I have manually set the BIOS settings back to default and cleared the CMOS. I cannot boot into Windows because it is not detecting my SATA ports.

Is it still under warranty?

Ugh I don't like the sound of "under warranty"... Yes it is still under warranty.

It seems that you have done everything. Proper Bios, and Cleared the CMOS.

If the SATA ports show as enabled in the BIOS and are set properly, AHCI?

I do know that Certain models of dell each port can be set on or off in the bios, Have you looked at all the controller settings?
Have pulled the AC and the CMOS battery, Moved the CMOS jumper to the clear position and pressed the on button to discharge any stored power? Leave that way for a few minutes. Restore the jumper, Battery and power. If still no go then if it were mine I'd bite the bullet and RMA it.

Lesson learned, double check. Especially on Something a important as the BIOS. It is easy to kill a motherboard with a BIOS flash.

Good Luck
Roger
