Question about ASUS A8R-MVP Motherboard

1 Answer

SATA ports don't work

It was fine for 1 month after i bought SATA hdd. Once i turned PC on, and my SATA hdd wasn't recognized by MB. In list of  storage devices he should be 3rd (1st my dvd-rw, 2nd my IDE hdd (80gb seagate), but now there is only "...", means it's detecting. I waited, but nothing happened. If i switch off data cable, it resumes working and loading starting menu with choosing OS. Cable probably working fine. I think problem in ports. Is it common trouble with these MB's or ports just burned/cracked or something? Power cable works fine. My HDD is 640Gb Seagate 7200.11. Thx to anyone who helps me.

Hi dear Expert. I Have my MB ASUS M2A-VM HDMI. SATA1(0) was connected with HDD Samsung 320Gb. SATA2(1) was connected with CD drive. Other ports spare. Now by commecting new HD Samsung 1Tb on SATA3(2)...


If the new Drive is setup on a different channel than the First HDD and CD then it should be set to Master. In the Bios you probably need to activate the second SATA channel so the Auto Detect Function can work. You also need to check that the MB can support a drive that size. Not all MB will support an HDD of that size. Aside from the Obvious of checking all your cable connection to insure that they are all solid the only other thing I would recommend is that you switch the CD and new HDD positions. Put both HD's on the same SATA channel and the CD on the Separate channel. This would require making 1 HD a Master and the other a Slave and changing the CD to a Master since it will have it's own Channel. Second, try remove all but the New HDD from the system. Set the New HDD up as the only HDD and see if the BIOS will see and allow you to select it. If it will not there is a problem either with the size of the HD or with the HD itself.

HDD problemon asus motherboard p5rd1-vm


You need to install the SATA drivers that belog to your specific motherboard.
When you are installing Windows thru your Windows CD, there is a moment at teh beginning of the process that you will be asked to press F6 if you want to install 3rd party drivers.
That is your call.
Once the SATA drivers are installed, you will be able to continue with your Windows installation.

M/b cannot recognize SATA HDD


This is common to other mainboards, the SATA controller have it's own BIOS, but it only works correctly using two identical SATA HD's at same time for data protection purposes. If you have a free PCI slot there are expansion cards based on VIA chipset VT6421 with 2 internal SATA ports, other external and one IDE. See one here

2 Sata Hdd not supported


Hi rafiqbrush, let me go over a few things for the P5B MB.
There is a total of 5 serial ATA SATA drive ports on the board & one ATA IDE/PATA port.
The 4 main SATA ports are numbered, 1 - 4. Your primary SATA drive must be connected to SATA port 1. Your second SATA drive must be connected to SATA port 3. See page 2-26 in your manual.
All SATA drives are seen as master drives. Once the two SATA drives are connected (As per manual), boot to the bios main menu.
At the main bios menu make sure your bios shows both SATA drives. Than go to the bios title "Boot". Make sure your primary SATA drive 1 is listed in the boot order. Save & exit the bios. (SATA drive 1 must have windows installed on it).

Good luck rafiqbrush!

IDE to SATA Adapter


Hi, could it be that you have an adapter that works one way only - IDE to SATA - it converts an IDE drive to SATA host port and therefore will not work in your motherboard. What you probably should get is Sata Drive to IDE connector. You might want to have a look @ http://www.satacables.com/html/sata-acessories.html./ Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck.
