Four of "SATA connectors" on the motherboard don't work

Post by Mans »

I have a computer that has five "SATA connectors" on its motherboard. Four of them don’t work at all and only one works and I have connected HDD to. Now, I’m not able to connect my CD Driver to no one of the four connectors.

I tested all the four connectors before, by connecting HDD to each one but received an error message ( blue screen error) and computer start not up. Just one of the connector respond to the HDD or CD Rom.

Please tell me what the problem is?

Thank you

Sounds like a hardware problem. I suggest bringing the system to a qualified service technician.

Is such the problem repairable?

What element is after the SATA connectors?

In general I suspect the power supply or the capacitors on the motherboard. Unstable voltages can cause stuff like this.
