Marius W.
Hello. Welcome to newegg.com. I'm Marius. How can I help you today? What questions do you have for me?
Wow this is cool, Wish you were on here all of the time
Alright got a problem it seems I can't or anyone else fix
Marius W.
We usually are on here most of the day into the night. At times one of use may be here on the overnights too
Ok, Well I have a hp pavilion 17 with a i5 4330m 8 gigs or 1600ddr3 and I just bought a new Samsung 850evo from newegg a few months ago, But the problem is , It won't recognize sata 3 only sata 2, I've tried different ssds and it seems the only ones the laptop will reconized as sata 3 are ssds with sandforce controllers
Marius W.
is your motherboard able to handle a sata 3?
It's a hm86 chipset haswell
Of course
Marius W.
No idea why it isn't being recognized as it should without issue really
Well let me give you a link and see what you think
Marius W.
ok
Marius W.
Also we aren't tech support so you may have to call tech support for Samsung
Ok well what do you suggest, I wish I could trade it to someone with a sandforce based ssd
But this vertex 3 looks good, but 120gb really isn't enough
Marius W.
Calling Samsung tech support is what I would do as I don't know what the issue is. Could just be a limitation on the HP you have
Yeah I think it's a hp/intel issue
Marius W.
I have no idea
Anyways what do you recommend I should do
Marius W.
Call Samsung tech support as this is an issue for them
We are more here for advice on buying and compatibility with building
We aren't tech support.. sorry :-(
Ok what is the cheapeast ssd with a sanforce controller
Marius W.
I can check
I would prefer 160gb or higher under 60 bucks if that would be possible
Marius W.
Here are all of them :-)
and now ones in your price range :-)
Thank you
Marius W.
