MOBO DEATH X-|

I unplugged my hard drive (1 of 2) and the SATA cable (with other words, both cables). Is it possible that this might have caused a power surge to my mobo?

Bios setup does not show sata HD windos xp find them


Hi,
I have had problems like this many times with some of my IBM machines. What i find most often the reason the bios will not recognize them is because the hard drive has gone bad.
Troubleshooting 1. Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from motherboard and hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable back into the motherboard and into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot computer and enter bios(by pressing F8, Enter, Del ect..) Does the hard drive show in there now?
2. If you have another hard drive.
Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot up the computer and enter the bios. Does this hard drive show in the bios? If so then i would say that your original hard drive has gone bad.

Can i use a sata hard drive with my ga 7vklm mobo


The Gigabyte GA-7VKMP motherboard does not support serial ATA SATA drives. Open the link provided; http://tw2005.giga-byte.com/Motherboard/Products/Products_GA-7VKMP.htm
2 x ATA 66/100/133 bus master IDE ports
1 x FDD, 2 x HDD and 1 x CD audio input
IrDA(1x5) and COM2 on board
GBT standard front panel
2 x USB2.0 connectors (support 4 ports by cable)

You can connect the adapter below to an opened IDE port and connect a SATA 1.5 drive to your system.
http://www.satagear.com/SATA-MM-A1_SATA_Adapter.html
This should allow you're SATA drive to transfer data faster than the 133MHz standard IDE speed.

Cheers'
Mike

Mobo will not power on if two sata drives are connected . The fans on system and cpu will not spin. System will power on and fans will spin if second hard drive is unplugged and system will post and boot...


good day sir, hi, its either your motherboard does not support 2 sata drives simultaneously or your motherboard sata port is bugged.
Choices:
1. get a bigger hard drive
2. use a PCI to SATA card for your extra SATA hard drive.
3. replace your motherboard.

Hope this may help.

If I bought a SATA dvd drive, where would I connect it to? Does it take SATA dvd, or does it still need to use IDE only?


This MoBo has 4 SATA connectors. Assuming you have one or two hard drives just plug it into one of the spare ports. If you are unsure, carefully follow the data cable from a hard drive to the MoBo to find the ports.

Dll gx280 case


first off does the motherboard have both sata and ide connections or just sata or just ide? (sata are small about maybe 1/2 inches in length and 1 mm wide and a ide connection is approx 5 inches long with about 4 inches long with over 100 pins and about 1/2 inches wide) i know that the opliplex 520 are nothing but sata so if it uses the same mobo as the 520 and you have ide then its imposible to install on your computer unless it either has a ide connection or you get a ide pci or pci-e controller card and install that onto the computer. but for the most part a ide connection needs a ide cable and a sata connection needs a sata cable.

SATA HDD lost contact


wtf? I think it may just be the **** Biostar SATA cable. Try replacing with another cable. Never would have crossed my mind. How the hell do you screw up a ******* cable, Biostar?
