How long have you had the system in that configuration? It doesn't seem to be a heat issue running around 45 degrees unless that is the idle temp. I need you to try something, when it shuts down, immediately restart the system in bios and look at the temp for the processor again. I solved my issue by taking a side off of my case and putting a small desk fan blowing directly into it. My idle temp went from 45 down to 27 degrees celcius. In a perfect world, the cooler a CPU runs, the better the system will respond. Find those temps readings for me, and let me know. Also, there may be a small monotoring program in your mobo set up disc to help monitor the temp while windows is running. And also, double check to make sure your processor fan is plugged into the correct spot on the mobo, mine is mislabeled, another issue I had found and corrected.

I have a gigabyte motherboard ga-z77x-ud3h, a new system install a samsung SSD with the OS loaded to it Windows 7 (64bit) ultimate and a 2TB hard drive that is not displayed in windows, however both drives...

Hello here is the homepage for the mainboard:

If you choosed to install windows in ahci mode, you have to make this setting again in order to boot correctly from the drive.

Is the 2 tb hd visible in the bios ?

If so you have to format the drive in the windows system when running, in order to use the drive.
A format of a drive can also be done when installing windows.
If the hd drive is brand new its not formated.

A youtube video will show you how you do this:

Remember also to use the ahci setting first for this drive
in the bios ( if available )
Remember also to format the drive in NTFS file system.
Also remember a format will erase ALL files on the hd drive.

Good luck

Reboot every 3 seconds?

Sounds like a problem with Electrolytic Capacitors, on the motherboard. (Or in the Power Supply)

(Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors to be more specific)

Capacitors are used as Filters, and Voltage Regulators; on the motherboard. (Electrolytic or Solid Polymer)

The one's used as Voltage Regulators are in the Motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit.

Part of what the motherboard voltage regulator circuit does, is to regulate voltage for the Processor (CPU)

The Processor MUST have a steady, 'clean', supply of Voltage; and it MUST be kept within the tight voltage tolerance range, for the Processor.
Too little voltage, or too much voltage, and the Processor turns off. (BIOS turns it off)

(Starts at 0:04)

[FOLLOW Anti-Static Procedures!]

Otherwise the problem is the Power Supply.
Yep. Same Ol' Electrolytic Capacitors, are USUALLY the problem.

To watch Youtube videos, you must have a good internet connection. Slow connection greatly can affect streaming specially if you are trying to watch high-quality videos.

If you think you have a good connection, consider installing the latest version of Flash player here:

Restart the browser, and try again.

Hope it helps,

I have a K9N6PGM2 MSI motherboard and the only way I can get it to boot and display the full size logo screen is to hit the delete button on my keyboard while it powers up. If I do not hit delete when I...

This is more likely to do with the monitor than the computer.
Going into that specific graphics mode allows the monitor to power up properly and allow the now failing capacitors to settle enough to run it up into the other modes.
Try another monitor on your system, and if it reacts normally without having to hit the delete key, then we have to look at repairing the monitor.

Here's some tips on repairing the monitor if you have to. (if it's not the monitor, it's the video card, and you may need to look at replacing that...if you are using the onboard video, consider getting a video card, or look for bad caps on the motherboard - same as replacing bad caps in the monitor)

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for different brand, but same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

I drop my ipod touch and it won't turn on now.

You could have unseated the video cables inside it. These are really easy to re-seat if you have the tools to do it. This happened with my iPhone, and I watched a bunch of videos on youtube and found a lot of useful tutorials on how to fix it. The video cables kind of 'plug' into different slots inside the iPod, so they can come lose or disengaged after being dropped. If you are comfortable taking your iPod apart you could fix this in about 10 minutes. If it's not the video cables, it would probably be a broken digitizer which again is a doable self fix. A little more time consuming and you will have to order a new digitizer online. You can find them all over the internet, a good place to start will be youtube so you can actually watch someone fixing one so you can see how to fix yours and ebay for parts is a good place to try.
