Question about ASUS Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I need to install drivers on an old HDD for an Asus K8V mobo.

I have a HDD that crashed that was in my custom rig. I am swapping in a HDD out of a Gateway PC. They both have Windows XP Home edition on them with SP3 updates. The problem is that the Windows XP version on the Gateway HDD does not have any of the drivers to recognize the Asus K8V motherboard. I can only boot up windows in safe mode and since it cant find the drivers for the ethernet controller on the K8V it cant access the internet. Since it cant access the internet it cant find ANY of the drivers it needs to work properly with my K8V. I have relocated into the Gateway and I am looking for a zip driver file for the Asus K8V so I can download it. I plan to then swap it back into the Asus K8V mobo computer and load the drivers in safe mode and then restart. The new drivers should then recognize the K8V mobo and allow me to update the drivers online. I need to know where I can find 32 bit drivers for Windows XP HE for an Asus K8V? I need to know if this proceedure is the right thing to do? I need any suggestions at all for continuing this fix? Thanks.

Hi gordonal123, installing drivers through safe mode is not recommended. If you want windows to function correctly than do a fresh install of windows. Over writing the Gateway hdd will cause you more grief. Windows registry will go nuts.
Link to download the Asus K8V drivers.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Here is what you need to do. Boot to your windows CD while using the Gateway system & hdd. Create a new partition within the free space of the Gateway hdd. (Follow windows onscreen instructions to create a new partition within the free space of hdd). (This will maintain the current windows function).
Restart windows when finished. Windows will create a second partition on the Gateway drive. Go to the Asus link above & download all the drivers for the K8V MB, onto the second partition of the Gateway hdd. Once downloaded & uncompressed into their own folders you can than boot to the windows CD & format the primary partition & install windows fresh onto the formatted partition. When finished you can install the K8V driver still located on the secondary partition. Copy & past these driver folders to your primary partition. Than use windows disk management software to erase / delete the secondary partition. (diskmgmt.msc).
When finished you'll have all the drivers for the K8V MB, no need to buy a PCI LAN card & more importantly a fully functioning windows with-out issues.

Good luck gordonal123!
Take your time.
Mike

And, Yes, it is completely safe to do that, but just make sure in the process of moving your HDD, do not send a static shock to it because it will fry it and make it lead to many failures. (This has happened to me before when I reformatted a computer and swapped it in computers)

Failing install of PCI SATA Drive


You need to load the SATA Controller driver for the XP install to access the HDD.

The driver will need to be downloaded and extracted to a floppy diskette, then loaded during the XP install.

If your system doesn't have a floppy drive, you'll either need a USB floppy drive or create a slipstreamed XP CD with the driver added to the CD.

NEED FOR K8V MOTHREBOARD SATA DRIVER


there are 4 different k8v motherboard types, you didnt say which variant?

 

but you shouldnt need any 3rd party drivers, either the one built into the cmos, or the ones that are on the cd rom that comes with the motherboard should work fine with win2003.

they have always been fine on my installs, just ignore the question on the initial setup, its only asking incase you need to use one, you dont have to.
