Sounds like the 160gb drive has some issues ...bad clusters etc ... if it keeps happening you can be sure the drive will fail soon.

I would look to replace the drive as soon as possible. If it's less than a yar old you should be able to get it replaced under warranty.

I recently upgraded my ram (2 days back) to 1gb on my intel d915gav motherboard, first it seemed to work fine, but now the Pc won't boot, with it connected?


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be

even something as small as a faulty power lead or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


make sure ram modules and cmos batteries have dust free secure seatings and cmos battery has charge some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail


check all power an data leads make sure they have dust free secure connections

cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease

hope this helps

Install sata disk


From what I was able to find it looks like the board is set for IDE Interface connections for the hard drives. But you can make it accept SATA Drives by adapters that plug into the Power Supply cables that go into the hard drive.

I'll show some links below that will show you the adapters you will need.

The link below shows the Cable that would plug into one of the power supply cables and go into the SATA Drive to give it SATA Interface.

The link below shows you the cable you need that will supply the Power to the Sata Drive. It too plugs into one of the cables that come out of the Power Supply and goes into the Sata Drive.

good luck

Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20.
If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows:
Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port.
Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port.

ATA Configuration
Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA]
S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller.
P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller.
On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]".
Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three.
First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.)
Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master.
Third boot device [ATA IDE drive]
If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive.
(Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it).
Save your changes & exit the bios.
Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number.
Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.

Sata hard drive


Check to see if your motherboard has a sata controller on it. The user manual will tell you. You can get a new on on asus.com. If it does support it, you will need sata drivers for it which you can download from the website as well.

If it doesn't work you can add one external by picking up and external drive case for sata controllers. Then all you need is a spare USB 2.0 port. Make sure you get one with a power supply for it because at that size getting 500 gig to work will require extra power to perform properly.

Hard disk


Sounds like loose cabling within the case. Power down the system. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open the case. Check every data cable & power cable in the PC. (Need good connections).
SATA hard drive data cable & SATA power cables can easly come loose, unlike IDE cabling which are unlikely to come loose. Banging the PC case will cause damage sooner or later! Run windows system defrag on the drive. (Also run windows Disk Cleanup). This should help speed up programs running slowly. Like a TV, PC's get dusty & dirty within the PC case. Once every couple of months, you should open the case & blow out any build up of dust. (Check connections before closing case).
If you're SATA data cable seems snug. Try cleaning the cable contact ends with alcohol & a cotton swab. (Both ends of the cable). Allow time for the alcohol to dry before reconnecting.

Good Luck!
