Hi i was reading a lot this site and tried different things. Im not sure what config should be on bios,m.2 disk appears and dissapears.randomly
 My kid computer has 2 sata hdd  on port 0 and 2 , a dvd on 3.Al ahci normal stateNot raid option.
In order to speed up a little windows boot i bought  XPG SX6000 Lite PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280. Also purchased a kingston a2000 for my wife that i used fortest the m.2 port/connector or discard adata sdd error/rma.

First time i connected with f6 bios ,the drive in m.2 was found in bios features->boot option lists and also on pperipherals at the bottom show nmve info. the windows 8 features was "another os" , "uefi and legacy"
booted win10 on hdd , but windows cant find it, not in disk magement, or device manager. Nothing.
dynamic storage acceerationis disabled, on peripherals -> intel rapid start technology is also disabled.

I've read https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/cant-boot-from-m-2-nvme-ssd.3365143/ but didnt woorked.

roll it back , but nmve disk don't show up. Loaded defaults and now finds it again.

Read some posts here, in tweaktown forum, recommended to update to f6e,/f7 so i went up to f8a.
after the bios update find some different options : in windows 8 features there are 3 optiones: another os, windows 8 adn windows 8 wqhl.
Also in peripherals shows 2 new options for  intel rapid start technology: a) use intel pci b) use hci /raid, but im not using this tech.

well, i will try this soon https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/gigabyte-z97m-d3h-nvme-support.3097090/ , but some others tried  csm off and uefi only. https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/is-there-a-way-for-a-z97-motherboard-to-support-nvme.3563351/

has someone had this rare m.2 disapearing problems from bios? sometimes you boot and itis there, sometimes it doesnt


thanks

Hi Absic rocks,
                       I run POP OS Linux. I thought I had got the problem fixed by swapping the NVMe SSD to the top slot but while that worked for a while the problem has now returned. I have a second NVMe drive which I will swap over with the original one to try that. I cannot speak specifically for Windows 10 but I do not believe this is a operating system problem, more likely a hardware or BIOS one. I suspect the motherboard will have to go back to Scan for replacement, I am now just out of warranty but I made Scan aware of the situation some time ago so I should be ok hopefully.
When the problem first occurred a bios reset would temporarily fix it but now it only provides a fix sometimes. I will proceed by swapping the NVMe and resetting the bios to see what effect that has. Scan help suggests that since the problem has occurred with both NVMe slots that the NVMe drive may be the culprit, this could be the case but my instinct says it is the board. If I get it working again then I need to make sure I use the computer very regularly to monitor the situation. Scan have been helpful but I need to get them to accept a board swap before sending it off. It would be good to contact Gigabyte technical help to see what they say. I have only experienced this sort of unreliability once before but with that board being 10 years old it was easy just to say it had come to the end of its lifespan.

Does this site not allow screenshots from IMGUR? What upload sites can I use?

Graphic cards / Aorus RTX 3080 Master RGB Fusion 2.0 fault
« Last post by Corralis on January 19, 2021, 08:09:43 am »


Hello, I have a fault with the RGB Fusion software. When I load it up all I see is what you can see in the screen shot. Because of this (I think), the small screen on my GPU doesn't display anything correctly. Right now all I can see are gifs of the hawk thing on repeat but I want to be able to see my FPS and GPU Temp. I have attempted to uninstall the RGB Fusion software and reinstall it but I get the exact same screen.

Can anyone suggest a fix for this please?

Thanks for your reply, i have posted on Reddit and other tech sites and yours is the first response I've had.

Did you perform a fresh installation of windows to the sabrent 1TB m.2.  Can I assume this is your boot drive?  How is this disk formatted?  MBR, GPT?

How are the other disks formatted?  Do they include multiple partitions, etc?

FYI the problems I have encountered only began once I plugged in the new 3080 GPU a few weeks ago. I had been running this same build with a 1070 for about 3 months without an instance of this happening?

I did perform a fresh install, although I had a few issues with the installation (think I set it as MBR initially and had issues with partitions on the drive, I was helped by someone on Win10 forums).

This is my boot drive, it is formatted GPT and has 3 partitions - 100mb EFI System / 930.90GB Boot, Page File etc / 513mb Recovery Partition.

All my other drives are formatted GPT and NTFS with only a single volume on each one.

You are running a windows 10 insider preview build.  This is not recommended for a production system.  Results might vary.

I was not aware I was running an Insider Build? I got W10 free when it first launched back in the day, and just transferred the licence across so not sure how I've ended up on an Insider Build??!

BIOS rev is?  ...  F22 or lower might be the best option for your 3700X

Around September when I did the build, I updated to what was the latest (R2?). Then when I started getting these issues early January I upgraded to what was latest available thru the Gigabyte @BIOS app which is R30.  This issue began on R2 and has carried on thru R30.

What operate mode for the storage controller are you using?   

I'm not sure what you mean by this - sorry my tech knowledge is limited to plugging things in and crossing my fingers.

EDIT: I looked in BIOS and all i could see was a reference to Sata mode which was AHCI?

From an installation standpoint your configuration looks correct, but you have quite a mix of hard drive technologies.

Its always best to use items on the QVL for your system.  This includes memory, storage, etc.

Some are drives from the very old build I had (SSDs) and a couple are more reason large drives i wanted for video capturing and games etc.

The drives are all either Seagate Barracudas or Samsung EVOs which are well established drives.

One thing I never recommend is initializing a disk that is formatted and contains data that I might have moved from another system.  As you indicated, that ship has sailed.

Yup, sadface. :(

Next steps,  Answer the questions above.

Then remove the disks which continue to drop off or become unformatted.  Verify your BIOS settings and confirm the system is stable. 24 hrs. 

Add a disk, just 1.  Use diskpart to select, clean and format.  I prefer GPT, but you can use MBR if you wish.  Run for 24 hrs, performing normal restarts. 

Continue this process adding 1 new disk each time.  This will require time and some patience.

Note,  other options might be indicated should your answers bring other unknown information to light.

I'll try that. I'm not sure what settings to check in the BIOS though with this regard - one other thing I have noticed since the GPU was installed is that I used to see the Aorus eagle symbol on the black screen (POST screen) prior to the windows screen with my 1070. With the 3080 plugged in my monitor doesn't detect a signal until I get to the Windows login screen.

If I stab the delete button nothing loads and I get an A6 error message on the mobo light which apparently relates to SCSI device, whatever that is.

Again, only happened once I plugged in new GPU.


EDIT: Have just noticed after posting the message, when I restarted PC, I had my second monitor switched on for the first time in ages and the POST Aorus logo appeared on monitor 2 before Windows appeared on Monitor 1 (my main monitor). The old 1070 used to just output both to the main window.

When I hit delete at the logo, I went into BIOS and saw the A6 code on the mobo light up so I guess that just comes up when you go into BIOS?

Ok, I'll do what you suggested and remove all the drives that are affected and run it for a few days without them plugged in.

Thanks again for taking the time to respond.

I built a new PC (AMD 3700x CPU, Gigabyte Aorus Master X570 motherboard and 32GB of 3200 RAM) some months back with mostly new components but with a few HDDs and SSDs from my older build (though some HDDs were quite new anyway) and had no bother with them for a couple of months.

I finally managed to get a new Gigabyte Aorus Master 3080 GPU about 3 weeks ago but after installation I noticed some drives were missing from My Computer. In Manage I was prompted I had to initialise 4 of the 7 drives I have installed. After doing so and formatting them all was well.

Then a few days later after quite a few reboots the same HDDs and SSDs were gone again, and looking at Manage again I was again prompted to initialise (and then format) those same disks.

After doing so I checked the health status on each drive but Windows cannot see any problems with them.

I thought maybe the SATA cables were bad, so I replaced all of them and after initialising again all seemed well. Today I booted and they were there, but when I went into Manage I saw a cross near the same four drives, and looking back at My Computer they were all gone again. Reopening Manage I was again prompted to initialise the disks.

I'm basically stumped now. I thought maybe the extra power draw from the PSU may be an issue, but its a Corsair Gold certified 860W modular PSU (860i) so I would have thought I had plenty of juice to cover everything?

FTR these are the drive details I have installed with the drive number they have in Windows.

Good Drives (never need initialising)

0. 1TB Sabrent NVME m.2

2TB Sabrent NVME m.2

4TB Seagate ST4000DM004 HDD

Bad Drives (always the ones that need initialising)

6. Samsung 850 Pro SSD
2. Samsung 840 EVO SSD
3. Seagate 2TB ST2000DM001 HDD
4. Seagate 3TB ST3000DM001 HDD

For obvious reasons I've avoided putting anything on these 4 drives recently, but I did lose a lot of stuff from the first time I formatted, but that boat has sailed I know.

Also, as per the manual, the motherboard does not disable any SATA ports if only M.2 slots A and B are used, only if C is used. The NVME drives populate A and B, C is empty.

I'm using Windows build 19042.685.

Figured it out, you need to put the Geforce Experience back to factory settings if anyone has the same problem.

I have a Gigabyte G32QC and the screen keeps on going blank and then after about 5 seconds it comes back on again showing the screen resolution. It tends to do it when looking at Netflix, Sky movies and general internet is unaffected.

Anyone had this please and know of a fix?
