Abit IP 35 SATA Port Problem

Postposted on Sun May 25, 2008 2:25 pm

Been having issue's with this , my back up drive is on SATA port 3 , no problems for weeks then all of a sudden BSOD and reboot , when the machine reboots , I see SATA port 3 has an error , like it's not connected.
I wiggle the SATA cable on the HDD and wham it boots up no problemo , weeks go by then same thing happens again.
So
I changed the SATA cable today , I am hoping that is it but , just like before I can see SATA port 3 lag for a split second at boot up then it is up and running , no problems so far but I have a feeling it's just a matter
of time.

I do have SATA port # 2 available which will be my next step if this occurs again.
I have search the net for this problem with this board and only came up with one hit with these symptoms , Abit forums say update bios or RMA the board , the guy RMAed his.
Any suggestions ........... ?

Try to update BIOS first
and if it's possible, try other hard drive on the suspected SATA port.
Maybe your backup hard drive wanna tell you something.

Thats what I was thinking , that drive is not that old but , I think it's the connection on the drive itself.
I am still seeing it hesitate on boot up but , still running smooth.
I do have a back up raptor in another machine I can try , then I will try the port thats free , then bios update.
I can't see how the bios would have something to do with it considering I am running rev 14

Still running fine , I don't see it lagging anymore either on boot up , must have been the cable.
