Built a PC for my boss a few months ago, it was working for about a month then it started to act up. Here's the specs and what it's doing:

AMD Sempron CPU
Asrock MB
2 gigs DDR3
Corsair 64gb SSD


sorry I don't have the list in front of me to get the exact model numbers of things. Any ways, Windows XP will semi freeze up, the mouse cursor still moves around but nothing responds, not even C+A+D. About 50% of the time when I reboot I get an insert boot device message during the BIOS. Prior to the message I though it was maybe the memory. I've ran Spinrite on the SSD and it came back with no errors. Temps in the BIOS look fine. At this point I'm assuming it's the Motherboard and can't think of anything else. But possibly someone here had another idea for something I can do to test further?

Hello jbird951

Check for a firmware update for the SSD. If it has a Sandforce controller with older firmware that could cause the problem,

About 50% of the time when I reboot I get an insert boot device message during the BIOS

quoted here. A Model on the SSD would be helpful. You might also want to look at users reviews of that model.

If that doesn't help, Back things up while you can just in case.

Good Luck
Roger

Thanks I'll look into the SSD firmware, the model's either CSSD-F60GB2-BRKT-A or CSSD-F60GB3A-BK I don't remember off the top of my head. If there's a firmware I'll back up and try that thanks for the suggestion.
