Hello, I just bought the V-Nand SSD 860 Evo 1tb from Amazon.com. Previously I used SAMSUNG 850 PRO 2.5" 512GB SATA III 3D NAND & SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s . My 850 pro gave out on me a few months back and I had to get a new one.

The problem is everytime I restart it and doesn't show up in BIOS & goes to my HDD. But when I turn it off and on, It shows up in bios. I installed a new windows on it using windows 7 ( which shouldn't be a problem at all ) and it hangs at the beginning. Could it be a faulty SSD? Ty. Here are my specs:

ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD

EVGA 970

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz

It could be a faulty or failing PSU. Best list your specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Then include the age of the PSU. Are you on the latest BIOS update for your motherboard?

Sorry that it's big, because I copy and pasted it. :). Btw, I got it working, BUT one part of the PSU when I plug it into any SSD/HDD doesn't work. HOWEVER, It does work for my HDD, It shows though, but SSD when using the same plugs don't work. Also my CD/Blueray disk drive doesn't work as it should after I wrote a CD. Could it be the PSU? Ty.
