Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

SATA II I'm just in the process of finishing a build... The new Intel board I am using has both IDE connections and SATA. Do I need to use IDE for primary hard Drive or can I use just SATA? I ask this dumn question as I'm hoping to use the 3.5" 160 GB SATA HDD from my laptop which has Vista preinstalled etc as the primary. Cheers, Bob

How do I update my ide driver for my cd rom?


IDE has been out of date for many years, you're likely having issues with OS or your motherboard just as much as anything.

Explore the option of a cheap upgrade. Intel i3 with onboard graphics, any LGA1150 socket motherboard, 4-8GB of DDR3 RAM and a 400W power supply (only need more wattage if you're running dedicated graphics). All HDDs and optical drives will be SATA on new boards, which is the standard that replaced IDE. You should be able to build a decent, lasting system for under 500 bucks USD - and something that will outperform any PC using IDE.

I have a ASROCK G31 945 intel MOther board , When i purchased i fiited with IDE CD/DVD Drive . INow is it possible to connect the SATA CD/DVD drive to my mother board. i have SATA connector on my MB ....


You need is an open slot for the drive, an available SATA slot / cord, and a SATA power. It may require you to go into BIOS, and in some cases a driver for the new drive. Don't forget the SATA drivers if you have XP.

I have a MSI-7309 motherboard and I was wondering if there was a pci card that I could get to give me more sata connections then just the 2 that I have filled up.


Hello there,
Yes there is it should look like the image below. They call this raid card or simply PCI SATA card it sells for $15 -20++.

pcsyke_113.jpg

There are a lot to choose from, consider your requirements some cards do have e-sata or IDE. it also comes with one 18 inch sata cable. Use up to 4 SATA I or SATA II Devices using this SATA I Speed Host Adapter, since PCI Bus is not Fast Enough for SATA II Speed if you wish to save money this card will provide you with access to all four SATA Ports at 1.5GB/s per port. Use New 1TB Western Digital Seagate or Hitachi Drives with your older PCI Based computer. supports up to 2TB of Hard Drives.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FIxYa.

Intel DG31PR, How many HHDs can i add?


The board has 4 SATA ports and one IDE port. Therefore, assuming that you also want to connect a CD/DVD drive, you should be able to add another two SATA HDDs. You may need to get a SATA power adapter (splitter) cable, if no no more unused SATA power cables are available.
Also make sure that your power supply is not already "at the limit"...

Intel 865GSA


Looking at the vendors I buy parts from, all the cards I saw offer both SATA and IDE ports. Here's one as an example. You definitely want SATA capability as most newer drives are only being offered as SATA, so you'll have a wider selection to choose from.

Another possibility: start fresh with a new system board. If the onboard IDE controller isn't working properly, this may be a warning sign that other problems follow. You might be better off spending your money on a new mobo that already supports IDE and SATA.

Hope this helps you make up your mind. Thanks for using Fixya!

I have Intel 845GVSR Motherboard, 2.4GHz Processor, 1GB RAM


Yes it will. Just make sure to buy the proper hdd. If your board has SATA II connections then you would need a SATA II hdd. If it is just SATA then a SATA II drive would not work. Your other option would be an IDE hdd. If your system has a cable that looks like a big ribbon connected to your existing hdd then it's an ide drive. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Connecting new hard drive


If the old one is still conected you can connect it the same way if not here is how to::

Well firstly they are 2 types IDE (large connector) and SATA (small connector)

IDE

of an ide cable has 3 jacks 1 for the main board and 2 for IDE drives
2 drive must be set to master and the other to slave
Set the drives by using the jumper on the back the instructions are written on the drives
Connect the Ide Cable and then the power and turn you system on

IF ITS SATA
connect the sata cable to both hard drive and main board
connect the power cable and your done!!

NB:: sata ports are labeled SATA 1 SATA 2 etc

IDE are LABELED IDE 1 IDE 2

Ide is a large grey cable black connector SATA is usually orange or red and small

Sata, ide


Update: SATA II drives do have jumpers to make them backwards compatible with 1.5 Gb/s (SATA II drives are 3.0 Gb/s). So if your system is older and can only handle SATA (first Gen) then you have to add a jumper (Seagate has the jumper setting on the drive but sometimes supplies no jumper i.e. you have to have your own).
