Question about ASUS P5B-E Motherboard
Have an Asus P5B-E motherboard, worked fine for the last year or so since I built it, but now when booting it doesn't recognize the hard drives.
-It will allow me to go into BIOS and Setup
-Hooked up hard drives to another pc and they were recognized/worked fine
-Did nothing strange or funky to prompt this
IT guy at work thinks the motherboard got fried; I'm thinking it maybe has something to do with SATA controller, if there is such a thing?
ANYWAYS...any suggestions out there as to what might be causing/what I can do to fix this?
You mite try to re set the board and I would start with just one HD with the OS shut down pull power plug push the power on switch to let out res power then locate the the bat on the board and remove it you will see a pin select set near the bat pull the connector and change the posision to the other pin (touch the two not together at first) then replace it the way you found it wait a few moments then try to boot again

this can be caused by a number of reasons
Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan
is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or
to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including
the leads from your
"((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and
are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem
computers need all of the data and electrical current to
travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will
fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin
type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical power
input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy
drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
also check the Cmos battery and computer ram make sure they
are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets
hope this helps you
