Try immediately after turning off the computer more often to press the button.
After you enter the section of the BIOS look for Integrated Peripherals or any, which in meaning corresponds to the integrated devices. In this paragraph are points of configuration parameters relating to the internal capabilities of the motherboard. Find the entry for Onboard SATA Controller. Or any entry containing the word SATA Controller. Check out the options for this parameter — this is typically Enabled and Disabled, Enabled, and Disabled, respectively. Take care to set all the parameters. To confirm, press the Enter key.

If you press this button, the system automatically prompts you to save any changes that were made.
