Hai sir iam using in intel d945gcnl desktop is propleam (a bootable device has not been detected)wihch propleam in intel board


Do you have multiple hard drives in your system. In the BIOS select the first boot device and select the 2nd HDD as first boot device.

to get into the bios press del and then use cursor keys to highlight boot tab and then select first boot device as HDD. Use the hard drive boot priority menu to select appropriate HDD as first device to boot.This option is only valid if you have two or more hdd's else your OS is corrupt and you will have to reinstall windows. Even check if all the cables to your HDD are tight, you will have to open up the system , if the system was moved around the cables might have become loose and just have to pushed in well.

I have sata dvd writer.when i connect it my computer does not boot.does intel D102ggc2 supports sata dvd writer?


You're Intel motherboard does support up to 4 SATA hard disk drives including SATA CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive, reader/writers. This MB also includes two serial ATA IDE ports.
The most likely reason you're system is not booting is because all SATA ports are all seen as Master drives. By connecting the SATA DVD-ROM drive the bios auto configured the SATA ports.
You'll need to enter the bios when you're system boots-up. Press the F2 key on you're keyboard right after hearing a single beep. You will than enter the bios main menu. Listed at the main menu are devices connect to the motherboard. (Instruction on how to move around in the bios is listed at the bottom of the screen). Mainly, the hard disk drive or (drives) and the SATA DVD writer. You'll need to open the Boot tab. Look for boot order. You want the boot order set like so;
First boot device: [Floppy disk] drive; if one is connected.
Second Boot device: [Primary Hard Disk] drive.
(The drive with windows installed on it). (This drive may be ATA IDE or SATA; you did not provide that information).
Third Boot device: [DVD-Rom] drive. Save and exit the bios. The system will auto restart.
You're windows operating system should load correctly after the auto re-start.
The SATA data cable and the SATA power cable should be checked for good connection. It only takes a little bump to make either loose.
Here is the link to Intel for you're motherboard;

New computer tower motherboard(Intel D945GCPE), Processor(Intel Celeron 430 LGA775), memory, hard-drive(ATA), & dvd-rom(ATA). Got it all installed in new tower(ATX,I have green light on the motherboard...


First try to clear CMOS

Turn off the system and disconnect power cables

Locate the CMOS battery on the motherboard and take out the battery

Wait for about 15 minutes

Reconnect battery and try to turn it on.

If it remain same, disconnect power cables

Disconnect hard drive and CD/DVD drives

Try to turn on again.

Also check if the front panel connectors (Power SW, Reset, HDD connector) are properly connected.

No matter what i do cd rom not detecting


check whether the powe plug has been inserted properly and the power plug is working fine. Even though if the power plug inserted is working fine and CD ROM not detecting means CD ROM was damaged.

Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20.
If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows:
Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port.
Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port.

ATA Configuration
Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA]
S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller.
P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller.
On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]".
Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three.
First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.)
Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master.
Third boot device [ATA IDE drive]
If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive.
(Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it).
Save your changes & exit the bios.
Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number.
Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.

ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard configuration


Serial ATA drives are pretty much plug and play. You just need to install them and set them up as a primary drive in your bios settings. The IDE devices can be connected on the same ribbon cable but need to have jumpers set on the back to determine which device is primary or slave. If the IDE devices are on different ribbon cables then most likely the hard drive jumper setting should be set to master or master (single drive). The CD-ROM drive jumper on master. BIOS should detect all drives You also need to assign the boot order in BIOS. CD-ROM should be the first boot device to load and install the new OS onto the primary hard drive.

Asus M2N motherboard ATA problem


Hi, Go into the POST and set it back to the default setting. Reboot and see if the cd/dvd rom drive. If it still does not recognize the drive, then try using a different IDE cable. Question, did the MB work fine and all of a sudden it does not regonize the drive? By the way, I have the same MB. So far I have not encounter any problems with it. Thanks, Mike

Problem ide


Hi gustabir,
try this first. (If I am understanding you correctly).
Power on the PC, press the Delete key every two seconds untill the boot menu loads. Go to the title, Boot. Set you're boot device's in the correct order. They should be listed as follows.
1st Boot device Floppy drive. (If a floppy drive is connected).
2nd Boot device CD-ROM/DVD drive.
3rd Boot device Hard drive.
(If you're CD-ROM drive is not listed in the bios main menu, than you're CD-ROM drive is not connected correctly). Please check the CD-ROM data cable is firmly & correctly connected), also check the power cable is firmly connected). If you are using more than one CD/DVD-ROM drive on the same data cable, check that you are listing the correct CD/DVD drive in the boot order. To change the drive's order while in the Boot menu, see page 34 in you're manual.
If the above does not address you're problem, please describe the issue/problem again.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.
Mike
