That is a very plausible explanation. I wonder if some application is causing the issue.
il see if theres some services related.
lol i've read your posts like, 3 times and i still don't get it: every time you restart you PC all the HDD spin down, spin up then down BEFORE the PC restarts? how do you know those drives spin down? like Budman said did you check the SMART data to see if they really spined down?
anyways, if i understand your problem correctly you could remove 2 of those disks from your mainboard to see if the problem persists (1 SDD, 1 HDD, any of them); if it still persists then i would try the same but with a diferent HDD, to see if there's any difference; if all 3 HDD just connected with the SDD do this then it's not a PSU or HDD problem but most likely a mainboard one: check if there's a newer BIOS for it.
edit: just checked the Gigabyte site, there's a BIOS that address a AHCI/RAID problem, might install and check if it solves your problem.
Also are you running in native IDE, AHCI or RAID configuration in BIOS?
the cunning praetor shinzon didn't understand me?
must be me.
when u press restart, the computer will go into bot in like 5 6 7 seconds?
i got this all procedure, be fore restart.
let me be clear = normal pc ^restart+closing all apps****black screen of restart. completed.
my pc is like = ^restart+closing all apps****HDD's on, off, on****black screen of restart. completed.
next time, if someone dosn't understand, its sfe to assume the forum inspector, will shot him, i think...
already got the f9 beta bios installed.
At least provide the complete specs of your system and that to in your first post, so that some can troubleshoot the issue for you quickly. Which PSU are you using and is there is graphics card installed? If you are facing issue then best thing would be to run with bare minimum hardware and then keep on adding HDDs.
i was wrong not to add spec info at the beginning, but i thought you guys will resolve it without the spec's info.
i'm using seasonic M12II-Bronze 520 PSU.
i got GTX 660 TI DC2.
