Question about Samsung SpinPoint P80 SP1604N 160 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

ATA133 refusing to be accepted

I have FoxConn SIS 755 CHIPSET MOTHERBOARD containing a "SIS 5513 UDMA controller under Device Manager under the AtAPTI controllers, and a Samsung Hard Disk drive (HDD) model 1604n 160 gig max interal drive. By my understanding i HAVE a 80 pin conductor cable plugged correctly from my Primary IDE plug on the motheboard to the HDD...the cable reads 300v and some other specs on it. I compared that info to a "80 pin conductor cable" search at through the shopping link. I believe i have the correct cable..I have updated the mobo UDMA CONTROLLER driver to I204A which is a 5.30 mb unzipped file which i had to do a Google search to find..FoxConn support via the website is basically nonexistent. I was told the IDE version of the HDD, which i have, does not require drivers. My computer, when i set to use DMA TRANSFER ACCESS mode, it refuses to boot. it will only work on PIO MODE 4 which is the same thing as ATA100. POst test screen always says, no matter what i adjust in BIOS, "no 80 pin conductor cable connected" I have tried three different brands of the 80 pin cable...yet no results..pls

    I did that..the bios auto reverted back to enabling DMA TRANSFER ACCESS AND DMA BURST MODE.. And after the post test it says "Boot Easy Success..." then it stays stuck there it won't load Windows XP Home. it's the DMA TRANSFER ACCESS that poses the problem still. it still says "no 80 pin conductor cable i have to have two physical hard drives to have a REGULAR SATA drive with it's 1.5 mb per sec performance or better performance? or cann i just have one SATA hard drive and it run the 1.5 mb/per sec performance and I can see it in Device manager\Primary IDE Adapter or Controller listed as SATA or ATA7?..or will i have to buy a MSI mobo for this stupid pc of mine to not say "no 80 pin conductor cable connected to drive 0"

Obviously mobo error, have you tried re setting bios from 'JBAT1' terminal, jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 then back on 1-2. Start up again and set time and select the auto detect HDD in standard bios settings see if correctly identified. save settings and restart pc

    ok iv'e lost the plot a bit here, are you fitting a sata drive or an ata drive?.

    If you are fitting a sata you will need to install drivers to the mobo and when you are prompted just before you start to install Windows.

This error message could be caused by a number of things. Generally it's because the program being downloaded is corrupt or didn't download completely. Have you tried a different browser to do the downloads? If it's a very large download you may encounter problems with losing packets. A download manager may help.

Also, you may want to try doing a restore to system restore point to a date when you weren't having this issue. System Checkpoint dates (in bold) are usually very safe points to restore to. I would also recommend a virus scan and if you don't have this utility and are able to download and install it (yes I know that's your current problem, but you can download it to a flashdrive from a friend's comp and install it), I'd get Glarysoft Utilities and run the one-click maintenance which will fix any registry errors. It's free and is a great way to keep your machine running well.

If any of this helps correct your problem I would appreciate a rating. People here seem to take the help and don't show any appreciation by taking the time to rate the help.

This motherboard does not have the advertised chip set on it. Instead of the SIS 761GX and 900 lan, it has the SIS 740GX and 190 lan. I had exactly the same problem and I wasted three days searching for the solution. Either the board is mislabeled or Foxconn conned everyone with a lesser chipset. The correct drivers are readily available at .
