    I have ASUS MBoard P5K PRO. After Windows crash and "hard" reset my bios refused to detect SATA HDD. However It still can detect another HDD which is IDE.

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.

I have a Soltek SL-K8AV2-R1L with one 160 gb sata harddisk (with XP on it), a 40 gb IDE harddisk on IDE channel 0, and two DVD/CD-drives on IDE channel 1. Tried to reinstall XP but XP setup did not...


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. The first thing you need to check is if the SATA Hard Disk is detected in Bios. In the system information you will see there the list of the drives including the DVD and the IDE hard drive. You can also check the Boot Sequence or Priority if it is there. Please let me know if you find the SATA hard disk on the list.


Thanks

My motherboard can;t detect my harddisk.....


Hi modjoguy, the bios must see your SATA hard disk before windows can see your SATA hard disk drive. To check this please press the delete key every two seconds as soon as you power on the system. (Note 1: Some motherboards that do not show the SATA II drive while in the bios may need its jumper set to SATA I in order for the bios to see the SATA drive). (See the drives large white sticker on the hard disk drive for SATA I location of jumper).
(Note 2: Gigabyte GA-K8VM800M rev 2.x & Gigabyte GA-K8VM800M-RH motherboards use the same manual). The Gigabyte GA-K8VM800M rev 1.x manual is slightly different, thus page numbers differ from the other two above.
Here is the link for all three: http://www.giga-byte.com/Search/Search_List.aspx?Keyword=K8VM800M&SearchType=Spec
The bios main menu will open. Open your manual (rev2.0 & RH) to page 38 & read under the listing, "IDE Channel 2/3 Master". The idea is your SATA drives should be listed at 2/3.
Once they are seen you need to open Advanced BIOS Features page 40. You can load the advanced bios features by pressing "Ctrl+F1" keys. You must list the SATA drive you want as the primary hard disk drive (Usually its the model number of the drive), that will have windows installed on it.

Good luck modjoguy!

SATA's compatibility , motherboard update?


Hi k439,
Keep in mind that all serial ATA SATA hard disk drives are seen in the main bios menu as a Primary Master drive. When you load the bios you should see the SATA 320GB drive in the main menu, Standard CMOS Features. If you do not than the onboard SATA controller is defective. This can not be repaired. Only a motherboard replacement will fix this issue. You can go to MSI's web site below & allow MSI to check you're system for the latest bios upgrade. Follow their online instructions & update you're bios file but this will not fix you're onboard SATA controller. Click this link to MSI Live Update link: http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=utility&maincat_no=1&prod_no=205

Sorry k439

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
