Hello. I am running Windows 7 64-bit on the following system (put together April 2010):
* Intel i-5-750 Lynnfield quad-core
* 320 GB Western Digital Caviar Black (Primary Drive)
* 1 TB Western Digital Caviar Black
* Asus P7P55D-E S1156 ATX USB 3.0 MOBO
* 2x2 GB OCZ Memory
* EVGA Geforce 512 MB Video Card
Everything clicking along nicely until yesterday when I booted up the computer. The 1TB secondary drive could not be accessed. I receive an error message suggesting the drive cannot be accessed and prompts me to reformat. If I cancel out of that dialog box, a second one pops up referencing “cyclic redundancy check.”
The drive still shows on the BIOS splash screen on boot-up, and it still is listed in “my computer.” However, you cannot see how much is available/used. The device manager lists the drive as “healthy.”
I’ve bought another SATA cable to try. Could it be a BIOS or system performance setting?
Frustrated, I attempted to reformat and that process was halted almost immediately with a message saying the process cannot be started.
