Probably the data cable is reversed. Flip it 180 degrees and try again.

Create a RAID disc with empty USB flash drive instead of a floppy diskette.

No beep on A8N5X motherboard, CPU fan works, green led on motherboard is on, nothing is on the screen


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections needs its connections continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

I have a k8u-x motherboard.. my problem is i cant install winxp in it because it doesnt detect any hardisk during the setup. All my floppy drives are damage as well as my floppies. Is there any way to...


Your trying to install windows 3.1 or 98 ? I have never seen Windows XP or newer on floppy disk is why I ask. That will not resolve your problem though. If you are sure you have the hard drive installed and connected with at least one of them set to Master, if you are installing 2, You may need to enter Bios and have it auto detect the Hard Drives in the Bios. If the Bios doesn't recognize the Hard drive or you have 2 hard drives and one isn't set to Master it won't matter what media you use you won't be able to install anything on the hard drive.

I have an asus p5rd1-vm motherboard. I found problems on installing windows xp using sata hdd. Please help me to install windows xp2 as i am not using floppy drive.


The Windows installation CD does not have a SATA driver. You need a SATA driver of a floppy disk or turn off SATA native driver in the BIOS.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions on how to Install Windows on a SATA hard drive :-

I suggest you install SP3 (service pack 3) rather than SP2, it contains the latest bug fixes. The SP3 cannot be installed from a floppy, it can be downloaded from Microsoft, it is a large file approx 300Mb, I suggest you install it from a CD if you can borrow one.

Installed a ASUS A8N5X motherboard and it go through bios and stops and then it tells me that NTLDR is missing . How do I fix this Thank you.


How to solve NTLDR is missing in windows XP issue
Using Windows recovery console. The Windows 2000 and Windows XP CDs supplied by Microsoft has a tool called the Recovery Console which can be used to repair errors that prevent Windows XP from starting using the command line. OEM versions of Windows XP, including computers that were supplied with Windows XP preinstalled, may not have this utility. This problem may occur if the basic input/output system (BIOS) on your computer is outdated, or if one or more of the following Windows boot files are missing or damaged: Ntldr
Ntdetect.com
Boot.ini
Check your drives for floppy,USB storage devices,CDs and any other bootable media.Because sometmes these things makes problems.Then go to BIOS and do the BIOS settings to boot from the source where the OS is installed. 1: Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer. 2: When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
3: Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
4: Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key(most of the cases it will be "1" only) and pressing enter.
5: You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password. 6: From the command prompt, copy NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from the i386 folder of the CD to the root folder of the hard drive. In the example commands given below, C: is the hard drive and D: is the CD-ROM drive. You will need to change the drive letters if appropriate:
COPY D:I386NTLDR C:
COPY D:I386NTDETECT.COM C:

Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

Dear Mr. Yaseen; To install windows XP SP2, you will need a disk that self installs the windows. You will be asked very few questions. Now, who said that the computer does not see your drice? In order that we can check that we will need a Rescue Floppy Disk. When you bought the computer you were given two (2) CD/DVD, one contains the OS and the other the drivers. If the drive C is corrupt beyond repair, you will need the Rescue Floppy Drive, which open the way to MSDOS, upon which Windows XP SP2 is based. Remove all CD/DVD from the computer and insert the Rescue Floppy Diskette. It should start immediately. It will ask you one question, if you want to have CD/DVD help and you say yes. The rest will happen automatically and a new drive named "A" will be established: There is no drive "B" in normal windows; drive C is usually the "windows XP SP2" drive; drive D can be the C
