I got a weird booting problem after overclocking my videocard. Offcoarse in this process your pc will crash sometimes.
With the crash the M4 hangs quite a lot, this happend before.
What I normally do is this sugesstion:
Take out the sata cable, leave the power cable. Turn the pc on and leave it for 20-30min. While pc is on, stick the data cable back in. Press the reset button.
This usually works fine. However, now it didn't.
What helps now is: go into Bios, then quit the bios. If I don't go into the bios, Windows won't start. But when I go into the bios, it will start.. The M4 is not reconized in the bios.
Now I updated to the latest firmware, sadly without any result.
Im using the M4 as boot drive, Win7 64bit, assrock Z77 extreme 4.
My gues is that after I enter the bios and exit it, the drive is suddenly detected. In Windows I can see the drive normally (after the 'enter bios boot')

At least for now, this worked for me:
''Go into BIOS and then Exit the BIOS. When it asks to save the changes/settings Y/N, you do nothing and let it sit at the Y/N screen for about 5-10 minutes. Then you press the Power button to shutdown and press it again to Boot.''

I would try to update the BIOS. If the BIOS is up-to-date I would reflash it anyway - in the past it helped me once. I was having weird issues with laptop and some devices in device manager. After I reflashed the BIOS (to the same version) the issues were gone.

WIll try it, however, this is not a bios problem, but a problem with the M4. I find it very strange there's no good support from Crucial. My next SSD or other product will not be a Crucial anymore since there are so many problems.
