    I have a KOBIAN P4VM800M Motherboard and an IDE (ATA) Hard Disk of 40 GB (Seagate).  My processor is Intel P4 1.9 Ghz. Upto what level I can upgrade my Storage(Hard Disk) so that there is no slowing down of PC Performance with this processor.  Also suggest me the amount of RAM(DDR 333 or 400Mhz) I would require for such amount of Hard Disk space.

Hi vijjis,
Make sure your SATA drive is connected to SATA port 1 which is the bottom port. Double check both the data cable & power cable. The data cable only connects one way at the board & at the drive. Same for the power cable. Your SATA drive must be listed in the bios menu & you must list the SATA drive with-in the boot order. If your cabling is all correct & you still do not see the SATA drive in the bios menu than the onboard SATA controller is defective. This can not be repaired because it is integrated into the board. It will not hurt to clear the cmos. See page 15 in your manual. Your board can only run SATA 1.0 = 150MBs. If your Seagate is pinned for SATA II = 300MBs, change the jumper on the drive. (This may or may not work). See if the bios list the drive.
One other option, you can buy a PCI SATA controller.

How do I add a second HD


Turn the machine off
Open the case
Look to see if there are IDE connector (Wide Flat cable with a connector usually grey)
If this is not present look for a SATA connector usually a small red or blue wire similar to a cat5e network cable
Scew your HDD in place in the rack connect the cable either IDE or SATA
If you have an IDE drive look for a 4 pin female connector from the power supply
If you have a SATA drive look for the connector from the power supply
Once all is connected then reboot you computer typically your bios should auto detect it.

Let me know what happens from here

Gigabyte K8vm800M Motherboard Does Not Recognise Seagate SATA HDD


I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM IN THE PAST. I REPLACE THE IDE HDD WITH SATA AND AFTER I BOOT IT SAYS NO HARDDISK. IT IS BECAUSE WINDOWS XP HAS NO BUILT IN SATA DRIVER.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IS CHANGE YOUR HARDDISK TO IDE OR INTEGRATE A SATA DRIVER INTO YOUR XP (USE NLITE) OR USE THE FLOPPY DRIVE TO RUN SATA DRIVER ITS INCLUDED IN THE MOBO WHEN BUYING.
