Question about ASUS PCH-DL Motherboard

Open Question

My Asus PCH-DL motherboard, has a total of 300GB hard drive space

I tried to get the Sata Driver to identify it as 300gb disk space, i can not find the driver, so i ended up only 80GB harddisk space.

Can you find the correct SATA driver for this motherboard?

I have been downloading for hours. and the F6 in Windows 2003 Server can not read the files on the SATA drivers i downloaded from the net

SOURCE: First time connecting SATA hard drive to this motherboard - do I need special drivers?

You shouldn't need any drivers- as long as the drive shows up in BIOS and looks correct- windows will load the drivers you need to make it work. Then when it's running - load the chipset.inf driver and the LAN driver from the motherboard CD. This will get you on the internet so you can go to the ASUS site and download all the new drivers (Including the newest chipset and LAN drivers)

SOURCE: Sata hard disk drive on asus p4v8x-x motherboard

Okay. If your board has SATA connection slots it most definitely is SATA compatible. Check on your motherboard how many SATA slots you have, make sure that your HDD is connected to on the Mboard with any other drive in a numerical order (on the Mboard right next to the SATA slot it should read SATA 1 or SATA 2 ........). If that does not work plug is you HDD drive loosely so that when you switch on your computer you can listen to the HDD. should it emit a humming sound, meaning its powering up the problem could lie with your SATA slot or SATA Data Cable, try a different DATA cable if this does not work try blowing air into the SATA slot on the Mboard, If no luck then maybe the slot is burnt out or malfuntioning. Should you not hear a humming sound coming from your HDD then its either faulty or the there is no power going to it. try to alternate between the cable of your power supply. Try these and Please let me know how you go.

I found that often, external hard drives just don't have any active partitions and thus don't show up in Windows. Go into the control panel, administrative tools, computer management and then the disk manager and see if it has a partition. If it's just unallocated space, right click and make one.

The new HDD uses a SATA data interface as well as a SATA power interface. You will need a SATA cable as well as a power supply that supports the SATA power connectors. Since this is an older machine you will probably need to buy a SATA cable and a Molex to SATA power connector. This should cover any cabling issues that you are having.

Computer says "please insert disk" when I try to

chances are it's not formatted or possibly not partitioned.
I don't know which OS you are running, so I'll try to be semi-generic with the instructions.
Click START then RUN and enter diskmgmt.msc
find the 300GB drive (it may not have a drive letter)
if the drive has no drive letter, right click the unallocated space and create a partition.
If there is a drive letter on it, right click the partition and click format.

That should FixYa right up.

If you have any problems, let me know more info like what OS you are running etc. and where you're getting stuck.

When your hard disk capacity says 320, that does not mean 320 GB fo free space, Total capacity is 320 GB, from this space required for the partition table, boot sector, etc will be taken, Dont worry only the available free space will be shown.

This is not a problem, so dont worry.

Dont forget to rate me fixya
