SATA 6gb/s drives disappear after standby

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I just added to new SATA 6gb/s to my system, and when ever the system goes on standby and comes back to life the drives disappear.  

 

SETUP

- EVGA GeForce GTX 280 1GB PCI Express 2.0 x16 
- PC Power and Cooling S61EPS 610W Continuous @ 40

First check for loose connections from HDD mounting, including case plugs, headers, anything.

What are the BIOS settings for standby, boot order, and HDD/SATA?

SATA configuration: AHCI

Smart status check is enabled, and all hotplugs disabled. 

 

Boot Option 1: I have one of the SATA 3gbs dvd drive

Boot Option 2: I have the 500 gb 3gbs hard drive

Boot Option 3: I have the 3 TB sata 6gbs hard drive

 

as for the standby settings I have not been able to find those in the BIOS

If you are running Windows 7 there is a Hotfix that often takes care of this issue.

 

Request the Hotfix files from here;

Select the Hotfix applicable to your OS (i.e. x86 or x64)

 

This Hotfix has taken care of the problem for me on two machines.

Do you have the most up to date firmware?

 

Also there are different suspend modes, s1,s2..... you can change this setting and this might help.
