Hello,

Try replacing the HDD cable & check jumpers on HDD on right mode (Primary/secondary/cable-select.

If above is ok. Go to your bios setup & check whether it is detected there. try loading Bios defaults.

Hope above helps.

Depends on the socket type.. Socket 423 and 478 do not support core duo or quad core processor types. However, if you have LGA 775 (aka socket T) your motherboard will support the following:

Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)

MacPro 8-core fails to startup. No power.


If nothing is happening, then you probably have a bad power supply or you have bad connections between your power supply and motherboard. You can take the cover off and make sure that everything is plugged in well. Make sure to touch the side of the case to dispel all static electricity before you touch any of the components. If the machine fans turn on and then it refuses to boot, you might have a bad hard drive or a motherboard issue. If you hear any beeps at startup, you can look those up online because every beep configuration is a clue to something wrong with the machine.

Installing 2nd hard drive. is a ultra ata 200Gb frive ok? if so were can I find or do you know the jumper settings? Thanks!! Greg


NO, this machine will only support SATA (Serial ATA) drives with out the addition of an adapter of some sort. The machine has internal slots for a total of four 3.5" SATA drives on "sleds" This is a difficult configuration to use an adapter of some sort with, I would not recommend attempting to use an ATA drive internally. You can get a 1394B (Firewire 800) or USB external case for your drive and use it that way.

Need a prossesor for motherboard


You can also use any other intel 775 socket processor as well. The dual cores are at the top of the list for performance that are compatible with that board, but if you're looking for a cheaper solution, I have that board with a 3GHz pentium 4 and it runs great. Here's a list of all the processors you can use.
Intel Pentium 4 (2.66 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Intel Pentium Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 2.80 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel 'Core' Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)
