Default [SOLVED] SSD Led Activity Won't Flash? - 02-14-2013, 23:02 | posts: 317 | Location: Texas, USA

Hello, I was excited to get SSD (Kingston HyperX 120GB). I am amazed at how fast it is. After few days and I just realized that the HD led activity on my case doesn't flash anymore but it did on my old Sata HD before I installed my SSD. It doesn't seem to be working on SSD?

SSD > Sata 3 Port 0
HD > Sata 2 Port 2
DVD > Sata 2 Port 4

I am thinking the following possibility:

Front panel's connector doesn't support SSD?
Motherboard's BIOS doesn't support it?

Thanks in advance!

If they are single leads (2 wires per lead), you may have plugged them in back to front.
LEDs arent like lightbulbs, they require electricity to flow in one direction only, otherwise they wont light.

Yeah, I was just going to say to check your polarity but Mufflore already got it. Glad you got it sorted.
