Hi, I really need help solving a problem that has just started to occur on my system. Here are the system specs:
AMD Athlon X4 760K 3.8 Ghz quad core
ASUS A88XM-E motherboard
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR3-1600 memory
Seagate Barracude 1TB 3.5" HD
EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Video Card
This build started with Windows 7 and was upgraded to 10 when microsoft offered it for free.

This setup had no previous problems with booting from the hard drive. Recently I have been getting the error of "No Boot Device Detected". I could do a couple of hard restarts and the computer would boot fine. I could shut down Windows properly and then restart and it would boot from the HD fine. Then the problem would randomly happen again.

When this problem happens and I look in BIOS, I only see the DVD drive in the boot menu.
I have tried unplugging and plugging back in the SATA cables. No luck.
Have unplugged and plugged in the power to the HD. Its fine.
I have tried plugging the SATA cable from the HD to a different SATA port on the motherboard - no joy.
I have tried unplugging the DVD drive SATA cable. When I do this the BIOS trips a message that says "The current BIOS setting do not fully suppor the boot device." Says to go to CRM parms in the boot menu. I have played with those settings. Not luck again.
Also, updated the bios and tried all of this with no success.

I really could use some help and would appreciate any responses. If more info is needed I will do my best to provide it promptly. Thanks.

If BIOS does not detect the drive I would hazard a guess the drive is bad. At this point you can pull the drive and attach it to another computer either internally or by using a USB enclosure. If the drive is detected then you can run a diagnostic on the drive using Seatools for Windows. Do the short and long tests.
