I suppose Hardisk has no problem if its sata or IDE ,games will mostly be Graphics and Processor oriented and also to do with the RAM. Should be some other problem . give me more specific problem you face.

I am using K8S MX Motherboard with OS-Windows XP. but my hard disk is not working. i want to purchase a new 160gb IDE hard drive. please tell me if it supports 160gb hard drive or not


The specs for this motherboard say it has a Utra-DMA 133, and 2 SATA 3Gbs ports.
You can connect any IDE HD, and any SATA 3 or lower HD. These standards are backwards compatible. When it comes to size, there is a 2TB MBR limit.
I would skip IDE and go directly with a SATA 3 drive.

Is it possible to use ID harddisk and SATA harddisk at the same time?


You can indeed mix IDE & SATA drives on a computer. If installing the OS (Operating System) to the IDE HD, you will only need to instruct the BIOS to boot the IDE HD drive first.

If you decide to install an OS on & boot the SATA drive first; you will need to instruct the BIOS to boot the SATA drive first and may need to provide a driver for the SATA controller - if the OS install does not recognize the SATA drive. The driver should have been included on a disk or diskette with the controller (or on the motherboard driver disk if a built-in type controller). You should see a prompt asking "If you need to install a driver.... press F6" (or similar). Press the F6 key and supply the driver disk - and follow the prompts.

Good luck!

I have a 250gb seagate sata but when i put my 80gb IDE hdd it only detects in booting and in bios but after that if i open my computer i cant see my 80gb IDE Hdd and even in device manager my hard disk was...


there was wrong in the set up of jumper in your 80gb hdd. Look closely to the 80gb harddrive, in between the ide cable terminal and the power supply connector you will see 8pin terminals paired together and a jumper use to short the paired terminals. It is most likely that the jumper was configure to detect your hdd as master. If the ide cable you use for the 80gb hdd was also use for the dvd/cdrom drive then it will conflict with it if both jumper setting was set to master. See the description of jumper settings in the sticker of the hdd. Position the jumper to slave.

Reboot your system again and see if the 80gb finally appear in your system. When system boot upon detection of hdd, the primary master should be 250gb while your primary/secondary slave will be read your 80gb hard disk.

Can i make my 80GB hard drive to 100GB? 80GB 7200rpm SATA SAMSUNG


This is not possible, 80Gb is 80Gb and 100gb is 100gb, but I am afraid, even if you like to replace, you'll not be able to get 100gb since it's no a standard Hard disk capacity. If you are trying to upgrade, then you can find 120gb, 160gb, 250gb, 320gb etc... Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

What is the maximum size of hard drive for the travelmate 2300


Hello,

Please keep in mind this unit uses IDE hard drive instead of SATA. The default 2300 uses a 30 GB high-capacity Enhanced-IDE hard disk. With latest BIOS upgrade, this unit will be able to have anything installed. 80GB, 160GB, 250GB, 320GB, 500GB.

However, I believe that IDE hard drives are slowly but surely becoming obsolete and legacy and they seem to be more expensive as well.

Cant able to format HD


To re-install XP over it's self. Put the CD in your cdrom drive. Start the system & press the F5 key every 2 seconds. This will load a boot menue. Using your keyboards up & down arrow keys highlit the cdrom drive & press enter. You will see to boot to the cd press any key, press the space bar. XP will start to load. Choose the correct options for a re-install.

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
