    No all I did was put in a sata hardrive before that is was working fine since then I've taken that hardrive out thinking it could be the cause of it but so far same problem

  • Moopin607 Sep 18, 2008

    been playing with it for a few hours forgot to remove the sata cable from the motherboard from the hardrive I removed no more strange black screen with random numbers and symbols now but my monitor doesnt seem to want to click on anymore still, everything else seems to come on though, this has happend once before I took everything out of the pc and left it alone for a few hours came back and everything worked fine again but anything else that could help would be nice.

You need to install the sata driver for the hard drive. watch closely at the beginning of the install and you will see it ask you to hit one of the f keys (i can't recall which one at the moment) to install the driver.
so go to the website of the hard drive manufacturer and download the driver.... put that on a floppy disk and install the driver... you should be good to go after that.

Asus p5n-e sli will no longer stay on for more then a few seconds


You go to AVIRA dot com and download the boot tool, or go to BITDEFENDER and run an online scan, you don't put in a new HDD just because you had a virus, it sounds like you had a problem and thought it was a virus.

Read you manual, plug in the Sata drive into Sata 1.

Do you mean BIOS post, if you don't even see the BIOS post, check your monitor with another PC.

There is only one correct power switch pin, a , + and - pin, how can you switch, there is no such thing as switching.

Mabee the hard drive has failed . try entering bios and see if the hard drive is recognised .If not try turning the computer off unplug it then reconnect the drive data cable and power cable

You can try by taking out the bios battery first it might of died on you theres also a ultimate boot cd you can find and download for free i had this problem before put on usb if you get to the bios screen see if it detects your cd drive once the batterys are out hold power button down for 15 to 30 seconds this should at least give you basic function drivers and make sure you have it detect your hardrive and move boot device to cdrom first then have windows cd in computer on reboot windows xp without sp3 probly wont detect a sata drivenot sure might have to use vista

Ok when your adding more the one drive you are creating a SATA raid, There are drivers that do need to be installed within the windows env. So this will not hang on you.

You need to visit Asus website and download the SATA drivers if your putting more then one drive in this mothership. This will use the secound drive as a hot swap, Remeber SATA is not IDE and vice versa whenever your putting a secound sata in the system will thing your trying to raid the secound drive.

1. check the drivers

If you have any questions please feel free to ask, otherwise please do rate your answer I gave before you leave, Thanks

Hi m_k_bishop,
You must connect the CD-RW drive to the Secondary IDE connector on your board.
It can not be connected to the Primary IDE port.
(All SATA drives are seen as master drives in the bios).
With that in mind there shouldn't be any data cable connected to the Primary IDE slot.
When you first load the Bios menu screen you should see your CD-RW listed & you should see your SATA drive listed. Go to the title, " BOOT " in your bios.
(If your system has a floppy disk drive connected your Boot menu should read as follows);

First boot device [Floppy Disk]
Second boot device [Your CD-RW drive]
Third boot device [Your SATA drive as shown from the main menu]
No need for a fourth device.

Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart.

(At boot up re-enter your bios).
Next change the [RAID Mode] to SATA or Enabled anything but RAID.
Once completed save & exit the bios. If everything is connected correctly & you made the changes above your system should see your SATA drive & windows should install.
(Load the windows CD into your CD-RW drive).
The Asus manual lacks the proper information needed for you to make the correct setting changes in the bios.

Good luck m_k_bishop!
Post back if still have trouble... You shouldn't!

I CAN'T boot from CD on SATA


Hi,
Have you set the jumpers on the SATA drive to PRIMARY DRIVE?(first drive)
Google a picture if you are unfamiliar with this. Its simple to change.

The most likely problem is that your bios is not set up to boot to that drive first.(or at all)
Go into your bios (it usually says which key to press on start up in the black screen) it could be F1 key or DEL key or F2.
Once in, be very careful not to mess anything up. You can always choose 'DO NOT SAVE CHANGES and EXIT' without worrying you have done anything wrong. Nothing will save any changes you have made, unless you specifically tell it to save, ok ?

Look through the bios options until you see 'first boot device' (its probably under 'advanced options)use arrow keys and ENTER and ESC to move around in the screens.
you can change which device your computer boots to first. (by highlighting it and then using your = and - keys.)in your case, you want to select 1) sata CD drive 2) hard drive and you can make your 3rd device your other CD if you like.(if this is in fact an ALL IN ONE SATA DVD reader and writer, then it should be the ONLY DVD or CD on your system.)
use your arrow buttons to move around in the bios settings.
you can always exit without saving and leave your system the way it was.*S*
But once you have it set to boot in this order correctly ESCape out of that screen until you see SAVE AND EXIT
Your computer will then reboot and you should be in business.
I trust this is the correct solution. If not please submit specifics about your computer model and the model of CD you are installing.Good luck

I cant install vista OS on this MBD , by sata HDD


You must enter setup at boot and select the CD/DVD as first boot. Then ensure that the BIOS settings have SATA enabled. When CD/DVD is first boot watch the screen for 'press any key to boot from cd' message is displayed. The boot screen will say how to enter setup. Typical buttons are F2, Delete, F1, F10 -you did not say which manufacturer. OEM trumps mobo maker with BIOS setup.

Installing an old hardrive to a new computer


depending on the BIOS type, there must be a method to disable IDE-0 from booting. If no method found, try booting from floppy disc and then run setup.exe from CD. Try to find this in the BIOS settings, then enable it again after you have fixed the Windows.
