ASUS mobo SATA ports frequent I/O errors

January 2, 2016 at 10:55:42
Specs: Windows 7, Intel Core i5-3470
I can't seem to use any of this mobo's sata ports - get multiple i/o errors until drive is corrupted. I finally installed a pcmcia raid card and connected drives there. Boot up is slow, but the system works. However this configuration appears to cause other difficulties (cannot boot from pen drive regardless of bios settings, virtual box can't see enabled virtualization, others ???)

There appear to be no new drivers on Asus web site. I cleaned plugs, replaced cables, etc., but the raid card was the only thing that worked.

Before I replace the mobo, I'd like to make sure I've looked for the problem everywhere I should.

First off, you need to post the full model of the board.

Reinstalling the MOBO drivers didn't help?

AArrghhh! I collected all this info, wrote it down, and then didn't put in message. I apologize for that. Mobo is Asus P877-V LK, Ivy bridge. CPU is Intel i5-3470.

I didn't re-install ALL drivers because the mobo cd is over 2 years old, and I didn't want to lose later drivers. Win 7 believes that SATA drivers are up to date.

You might want to make sure there are no viruses lingering on your system like a master boot sector virus that survives a format. Do a virus scan in Safe mode.

Lets have a look at these logs.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.
If we have to run Farbar more than once, refer this SS.
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt).
The logs are large, upload them using Zippy ( No account/registration needed ) or upload to a site of your choosing. Give us the links please.

I'll do that and let you know when I get a log file. It may be a few days though. I'm compressing a 3T backup drive, and windows won't resume if it's interrupted. Its a WD My Book so v e r y slow. When done I'll run the scan. Thanks so much for your reply.
