You have two SATA connectors but only need one SATA hard Drive. It has two because Gigabyte has a optional RAID setup. Some have 6, it depends on the nodel.

Alright, i looked it up online.

First, It has Dual Channel DDR which means you have to have two sticks of memory the same amount of memory on each stick, or just one. Whichever, you cant mix up different speeds or different size memory stix.

You need to have a SATA Hard Drive not IDE as this model appears to be SATA only. The IDE is meant for the CD Drive.

Is that your Board? Or close? the link is to the website.

Did you get this new? how old is it? This board is meant for setting up a raid system so if its not what you intended, get a smaller or less expensive board. Take it back and say it didnt fit your case just didnt meet your specs that you thought.

When sound card connected in PCI slot the comp will hang over and over when i try to install driver of 4 channel tlink card. how i can slove the problem and which card is most suitable with Gigabyte...


This is gigabyte's link for your board, there are 4 different revisions, you can see the different choices at the top. Anyway, you have a PCIe x 16 slot so you could go with a Radeon HD graphics card, ATI has a DVI to HDMI adaptor that works great. Two things, what is make and model of the card you are installing and where are you getting your download from? You may have to dedicate the slot in Bios. Let me know.

Changed MSI MB to Gigabyte. I get bios and even the windows recovery window but every time it just restarts and wants to do a start up and repair that always fails. Help.

This is Gigabytes link to downloads. Did you uninstall software from MSI? Try to shut down, unplug system, and restart. You might want to consider a "system restore" back to when it did work. Did it work at all with new board?

BIOS does not read cpu fan speed.


if the fan only has two wires, it will not give speed feedback. This is common, and not a problem if the fan is working.

No visual and hardware problems


I am not sure on the beeps on what your mean. There is a short beep or a long beep or a series of beeps. Here is a website for you to help you to determine that.

After purchasing a new Motherboard, my computer jsut seems to power down after about 20 mins playing games on it. Other than that it is ok.


It definately sounds like a heat issue.

Did you use the thermal paste to heat sink? Make sure your fans are all running. Make sure the heat sink is snapped tight to the processor.

I would suggest a system monitor to detect heat and speed of fans.

Error loading operating system


You have to re-install your Operating System. You have significantly changed the controllers of the mainboard (from ASUS to GIGABYTE) and therefore all of the device drivers and controllers etc that are loaded into your OS are for the ASUS board.

You can get away with no OS reinstall only if you change the same brand of mainbaord, even then its not always 100% compatible.

Pc boots and stays on the black screen at the start


Try getting into the BIOS and making sure that it is detecting the RAM and HDD and Processor. Typically this happens when theres no memory or a memory problem. If its the Hard drive it will say NTLDR missing or Hard Drive failure. When its blank.

Does the Hard drive fire up when its sitting there? Does it seem like it booting the Hard drive or does it just sit there.

Also, if you have an onboard Video and a video card, try using just the onboard video for now, sometimes the Video card can cause an issue if it doesnt have drivers and comes up blank.

Make sure the bios has the video set to PCI or AGP depending which you have intstall. Or Auto if it has it.

I have had two Gigabyte board and im using one now and have had similar issues that where caused by a ATI video card.

Good luck and let me know if you still need help.
