SATA socket broken

It seems that my HDD problem was actually to do with the SATA socket. No matter which device i plug into my First SATA socket it isn't shown, recognized. This means that due to my RAID 0  array, i cannot start windows. THat explains the "Missing OS" problem from before.
What i am asking: Is it possible to replace the SATA socket or do i need to replace entire motherboard, which i really don't want to do.

If you also have IDE connectors, you can buy an IDE to SATA adapter and disable the SATA in your BIOS. Ron.

There is no way to replace any single component integrated on a motherboard. Sorry, but you are going to have to replace the entire motherboard.

A8VE-SE won't recognize SATA HDD


If you are trying to install Windows XP then -
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Power not up


1) Please make sure that the HDD IDE cable is plugged in properly on both ends. It is a 40 pin female cord which should be seated on IDE channel 1 on the motherboard.
2) Make sure that all the CD/DVD drives are on IDE 2 or on SATA
3) Make sure taht the Jumper setting on the back of the HDD is set to MASTER
4) Login to bios and make see if you can find the HDD from the IDE drives menu. I am sure you will. From Boot menu select the NATIVE mode that will activate both the SATA and the IDE channels. Select HDD as second boot device.

Hi, you can download and renew the drivers from here:

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=A7N8X-E%20Deluxe&p=1&os=

Download a manual first and check the bios settings.
Click on global for download.
Unzip the file after you have downloaded it.

The second harddrive has to be configured as slave with the jumpers
on the drive.
Check the jumpers before you continue.
Your operating system must have at least service pack 2.
Maybe you have to upgrade the bios to the latest version.
Make sure its the right bios or you will destroy the mainboard.

I got a new SATA 500gb HDD but the motherboard wont detect it.


Access to your Bios Setup & configure the Bios settings.

Features Setup Page : This page sets up some parameters for peripheral devices connected to the system.

CMOS SETUP UTILITY - Copyright (C) 1985-2003, American Megatrends, Inc.
Features Setup
OnBoard Floppy Controller : Enabled
Serial Port1 Address 3F8/IRQ4 : Enabled
OnBoard IR Port : Disabled
Parallel Port Address : 378
Parrllel Port Mode : ECP
ECP Mode DMA Chnnel : DMA3
Parallel Port IRQ : IRQ7
OnBoard PCI IDE Controller : Both
OnBoard SATA-IDE
: Enabled *(Make sure This is enabled)
Audio Device : Enabled
Modem Device : Auto
Ethernet Device : Enabled

If you have got a SATA III HDD, ie if it is a Western Digital Sata III you need to configure the jumpers to work with your older Sata interface port.(Only Sata 1 & 2 ports on your Mainboard Socket 478). As for Seagate Sata III HDD, the configuration is automatic.

If your 500GD HDD is not detected, try updating the BIOS!
A word of caution "Updating the Bios is not for the Novice" Do it at your own risk. Failure in updating the Bios may render your Mainboard useless.

Hope it helps.

Connecting sata hdd on 845ge


Directly you can't, the chipset on that motherboard doesn't support SATA. You will have to buy a PCI SATA card and plug the disk in it.

Cannot detect external sata hard disk


I would start by swopping the Internal Sata Cables around and check if that solved it.

If not then there's probably a problem with either the E Sata HDD Controller board or Even the HDD or the Sata cable going from the Motherboard to your input E Sata Port.It's a matter of elimination.

So Remove the HDD from the Enclosure and plug it directly into the Motherboard and see if thats picked up.If it is then the HDD is fine.If not, get it replaced and it might still be under warranty.Check with the manufacturer.Continue reading if the HDD is fine.

Then use the Sata Cable from another HDD and connect it straight to to the E Sata Enclosure and see if the Operating System picks it up,Make sure the HDD you removed is plugged back into the enclosure.If that doesn't work then the problem lies with the Enclosure itself and you should get it replaced.

If it does the the problem lies with the cable itself and you should replce that.

Hope this helps you out.

PC won't boot if SATA drive connected, drive works fine if plugged afterward


Try Hirens Boot CD. It has a lot of programs on it to detect format etc.
I think your hard drive has a missing or corrupt MBR and it needs to be replaced.
When I have had a hard dive not recognized I hve used Super Fdisk to format and reset hard drive.
