A8n32-SLi Deluxe - Will not boot

Connected a corrupted IDE hDD from a friends PC.

After that my PC wouldn't boot.

Remove the faulty HDD and PC booted up again.

Reconnected the HDD again after changing jumper settings. Still wouldn't boot.

Remove the HDD again and reset the CMOS, computer fails to boot up at all.

Check the RAM green light on the mother board is on. Disconnected everything from the MOB other then PSU, CPU, RAM and VIDEO card. Still will not boot.

Is it possible the CMOS is corrupted ? or I have blow my mother board up.

I am about reseat the video card and the RAM again and check all cables again.

    Still no luck computer is still dead.

    remove the ram again, video card, cleaned the mobo, tested the PSU with a multi-meter which is fine.



    no blown capacitors on the mother board.



    the only other thing we are thinking is the BOIS has been corrupted or a circuit

    has blown out on the mobo even though there is no signs of it. There is power to the mother board as the green light is on and there is power to my card reader and the mouse.



    whats involved in getting the BOIS fix if we can't get the computer to boot.

Your bios can be reset to defaults by removing the CMOS battery, then moving the little blue jumper to the right of it from the 1-2 pins to the 2-3 pins fpr 10 seconds, then place it back onto the 1-2 pins, replace the battery and boot as usual.

Reset CMOS as stated in motherboard manual. When rebooting use only 1 stick of RAM in the B1 slot, as probably indicated in the motherboard manual :)

It is possible that the CPU has stopped working, it is easy to replace or test it on another computer, make sure you test or replace with the same model CPU with the same specs.

If it is the BIOS that is faulty, then it is difficult to identify and replace, especially if it is a surface mounted IC chip. On older computers the BIOS is easier to identify and sometimes it is labled with the makers name (eg, Award, AMI, Phonix etc.), and sometimes it may be inserted in a DIP IC socket which makes it easier to replace. If it is soldered on the motherboard it may be a bit difficult to remove without damaging the motherboard, although it can be done with care. I suggest you use a fine tipped temperture controlled soldering iron.

What are you trying to do with your friend's hard disk?
Are you trying to install it as a slave drive so you can see what is on his hard disk, if so you need to set the jumper on his drive to be a slave drive and your drive as a master or master with slave drive.

The easiest way to connect a second drive temporally to your computer without opening your computer is to use and external USB hard drive adapter/case (ie a USB external hard drive case) and all you need is to plug it into your USB port to view the contents of that hard drive.

GA-EP41-UD3L problem with SCSI/IDE


Sounds like the motherboard bios is only capable of booting from drives connected to the motherboard's ide connector and not additional / or external ide connectors. Looks like you would have to have 1 HDD and the CDRom Drive on the built in ide connector and the other hard drive on the extra ide connector you added. Although that would probably stop the other HDD from booting. Have you thought about putting both operating systems on the same drive. I do it all the time.

IDE#0 ERROR


Usually the HDD is set on IDE #0.
The PXE error appears if the notebook tries to boot up from the LAN but the cable is not connected or there is no possibility for LAN booting.

In my opinion there is something wrong with the HDD or the BIOS cannot recognize the HDD correctly. I would recommend checking the HDD pins. Furthermore you should change the booting order in the BIOS.

NI8 SATA DVD Drive compatability


You must have added the SATA drive after setting up the IDE. If both drives are using the same os this will not function. Ony one drive can have the os on it. All SATA's are seen as a master.
To correct this problem, disconnect the IDE drive. Hook up the SATA drive. Again if the SATA has the os on it everything will run. Change the jumper on the IDE and set it as a slave. Hook the IDE up. Enter the bios & do not list the IDE in the boot to section. Problem solved. While in windows, format the IDE drive.
You do not want windows thinking you want a dual boot system.
So you understand, in the bios -boot settings this is how things should be listed.
Boot device 1 Sony Optiarc DVD drive
Boot device 2 WD raptor SATA, In-stall your os to this drive
