Hello, My my motherborad is ASUS p5rd1-vm;RAM1GB and hard disk is PATA 80 GB but the HDD is having some kind of problem and the windows have shown a warning about it several times. Now i want to buy a...


Yes, it's compatible with the motherboard, no, it's not compatible with the XP install disk because it doesn't have SATA support. And since Asus doesn't provides it special driver needed (one that must be put on a floppy) it means that you simply cannot install XP on this disk.
All you can do is to obtain another PATA hdd what ever its size and install XP in it. Then put the new SATA disk in and use it to store all the installed programs and all your files on it. As a bonus you won't lose them if the new PATA disk fails or XP gets corrupted.
Or install Vista or 7 instead of XP, the have support for SATA disks

Hi, I'm having K8V-MX Asus mother board with AMD 3000+ processor wih 1GB DDR ram, with 80 GB PATA Segate HDD connected. After adding 500GB SATA HDD to this mother board, my system performance is very low....


Hi,
Thanks for the details. I have used K8V-MX Asus motherboard and found it very reliable with quite reasonable performance. It definately supports 500 GB Sata drive and there must not be any issues after increasing just the storage. However, Operating System upgrade may result in sluggish performance. Drivers dont seem to be an issue to me either.
I suggest to review a few points detailed as under: -
- K8V-MX Asus Supports RAID, so, check for any RAID Drivers/ settings. (You dont have to use RAID for two Hard Drives of different make, capacity and speed). Try using one disk at a time having same Operating System (e.g. Windows XP) and compare the performance.
- Infact SATA Drives have better data transfer rate than IDE, which results in enhanced performance.
- Some Programs (that you may not be using with 80GB drive) Like antivirus may result in decreased performance.
- Please Review you Operating System environment and software installed. Make sure that the new drive & Operating System are free of any virus, which results in CPU Utilization upto 100%.
- Also, motherboard supports Max 2GB RAM, so you may consider adding more RAM.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I have K8V-MX motherboard. I am planning to buy a 1TB SATA HDD Will this support ? Thanks! Madhusudan


Your model KV8-MX motherboard does not have a SATA controller.
To install a 1Tb SATA hard drive you need to install a PCI SATA controller and then connect the SATA hard drive to this controller board.

yes the mother board supports SATA However if you connect large Disks to the SATA connectors they are recognized correctly with full size. So leave your 500g and less HDs on the IDE and the big ones on the SATA. you can check this link for the manual for more information ftp://ftp.chiligreen.com/Desktop/Manuals/manual_a_k8v-mx.pdf hope this helps .thanks and Godbless pls appreciate by rating as fixyaa

Change of hard disk from 160 gb ide to 250 gb sata


Hello there.

I checked the specifications on your motherboard from here .

As you can see it does indeed support SATA Hard Drives, as per the page:

SATA Four-Channel Serial ATA supports 4 SATA II devices

Each SATA hard drive uses up 1 of the channels, so you can use a total of 4 SATA drives at once.

Hope this helps.
