Most motherboards have multiple plug-ins for Sata drives. Try another plug in. This will typically solve this type of issue.

Do extensive diagnostic tests:

1. Set BIOS to default settings and do not use overclock settings, check.
2. Memory test, download ISO image, burn it onto cd and boot from it.
If memory fails after several hours testing: Replace memory
3. Flash the latest (original)[beta] BIOS version.
4. Connect just one (1) harddisk and test for longer time. *
5. Add second harddisk and test for longer time. *
6. Add third harddisk and test for longer time. *

* If connecting or adding harddisk leads to freezes, exchange that harddisk and retest.

System can't fully boot, cannot communicate with internal hdd. have used restore disk to get back to dos prompt


Your harddisk is not detected proeprly in bios .
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios .
Then check your sata option is disabled in bios .
Then save settings then your harddisk is detected properly.

My dvd rw is not detected


Sounds like you need your manufacturer's SATA drivers.

This problem exists a lot when installing Windows from scratch on SATA hard disks. When you start the installation, Windows prompts you to "load additional drivers". It's at this point you put a floppy disk with the SATA drivers in.

If your install is already working, but just stopped as you say... then you could hunt around the BIOS for a SATA "compatibility" mode, which will get you booting straight away. Install the SATA drivers and you can then put the drive back into normal operation instead of compatibility mode.

This is also the reason why your other hard disk with Windows can see the SATA disk and optical drive... it probably has the SATA drivers installed.

HELP ABOUT K8C-X motherboard


Hi thun, Unplug the power cable from the PC.
Please reset the bios. This is shown in you're user manual on page 1-17. (If you no longer have you're user manual for the Asus K8V-MX MB you can download it from Asus by clicking on this link):
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=K8V-MX&SLanguage=en-us

Remove the SATA data cable & clean both ends of the cable with a few drops of alcohol on to a cotton swab. Than clean both SATA ports on the motherboard using the same method.
Also clean the SATA power connectors in the same fashion. (Allow time for the alcohol to dry).
You can help it dry using some canned air.
Re-connect the SATA data cable & SATA power cable to the SATA drive. (Check all other connections within the PC for good connections before closing case). (SATA data & power connectors are easily knocked loose, so be careful).
Plug the power cord back into the PC & boot the PC. Enter you're bios. Check the main menu & make sure the bios has listed the SATA drive. Than go to Boot menu. Page 2-27, 2-28 in the manual. Make sure you see the SATA drive listed here. If you are sure the SATA drive was listed in the main menu than it must also be listed in the Boot menu.
If it is not listed in the Boot menu than there is a problem with you're bios. You're board is warranted for three years from manufactures date. Please call Asus tech at 1-812-282-2787.
M-F 9:00AM to 5:00PM EST. You will need the serial number printed on a white label located on the pink LPT port. You can see this only from within the PC. Asus will ask for that S/N to determine if you're board is still within warranty. If it is, make sure you get a case number & instruction before ending the call.

Good Luck!
Mike
