Hello! I was on the live chat for quite some time hoping for some help, but unfortionatly people were busy So I really need help with my issue and was hoping if anyone could help me resolve it. I do not know much about hardware, it is my weakpoint and this is why i turn to you experts! Any questions are welcomed and I will do my best to help support you with information. If you do need to ask me something, please try and go in detail on how I can get the answer if it requires me some steps that you think i cannot follow. Other than that onto my issue!!!!!
Hey guys! back with another problem... My computer seems to like to disconnect my Sata harddrive whenever it wants to, this results in corrupting my harddrive having me to run chkdsk every time i wana run my computer again. Anyone know what might be causing this? I don't think its the cable, could it be a setting on Windows 7 that's causing it to sleep or something? Thnx in advance, help is much appreciated.. oh and i already tried plugging it into a different port. I can get it to reconnect VIA device manager --> check for hardware changes. Device manager gives it (The SATA harddrive) the name ST3750330AS ATA Device, could it be a driver issue? My mother baor is a M4A88T-M by Asus. Also, Boot up on an IDE and my Sata ( the one cuasing me problems) stores most of my games/files/backups etc. im guessing its my mobo but idk what the issue is tbqh. Somewthing with the controller?
Also 1 mini question, can i disconnect my sata cable / harddrive as it is in my computer like when it "Dc"s itself, can i unplug it as my computer runs and check stuff, and then maybe replug it in afterwards, or would it be better to turn off my PC then do all that sorts.
Thanks again guys!
