The 34 pin connector is for your floppy drive(s) .. not for your CD drive. There is no special cable for this. 2 different interfaces alltogether.

    Are you using 2 IDE hard drives on that IDE cable?

  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    Then you can connect the cd drive. Set the jumpers on your hard drive to master and the CD drive to slave.

  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    Then route the IDE cable accordingly to the IDE HD drive and the CD drive

  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    Do you know how to set the jumpers and/or know where they are?



  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    What kind of hard drive (make/model) do you have?

    What kind of cd drive (make/model) do you have?


  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    Ok the back of the CD drive will look similar to this


    But you will put the jumper on the middle set where it says SLAVE



  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    For the hard drive it looks like this




    You need to set the jumper on 7&8 as shown for master or single drive (top option)


  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    Yes put it in the middle since it is not labeled



  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    Have you set the jumpers for the CD drive and the hard drive as I have shown/discussed?

    If so you then need to connect power leads and the IDE cable to both devices


  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    You should be basically ready to "run". I am assuming that you have already installed the CPU and the RAM.

    I generally like to "bench" connect now. Don't close up the case. Connect the power cord, keyboard, mouse and monitor cables to the computer. Turn it on and be sure it is booting.

    Is the hard drive new or does it have Windows or some other operating system already on it?


  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    The SATA cable is for SATA hard drives, cd rom/dvd rom drives, etc.

  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    You may run into some issues with XP and this new motherboard, that may require a windows REPAIR installation.

  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    No .. your devices are all IDE

  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    Your board should look like this


    You need to connect on the ATX power connector and sorry but the 4 pin power connector goes in the connector that is in the connector that is near the inside corner of the arrow that points to the Nvidia Gforce chipset

    If you have that audio cable you can connect it to the cdrom and motherboard. The audio cable just connects the line level audio output form
    the CD-ROM drive to one PC sound card (onboard) line level audio input dedicated
    to CD-ROM audio cable.


  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 17, 2009

    Yes .. use the sound cards connector then .. and be sure to disable the HD Audio in the BIOS setup under Integrated peripherals

When try to make the M/B on it just run the cpu fan and power drops instantly ?


Hi,
That means the PSU( Power Supply Unit ) is not giving enough power.
Check the wattage of your PSU, it should be 500 watts or more to power up that MoBo or the PSU your using is not working anymore.
Hope that helps you out!

The first thing that I would do is check the MoBo's website and find a RAM compatibilty chart. Make sure that you Mobo doesnt have any know issues with your particular RAM. You may also check the RAM's website and look for compatible RAM for your MOBO. Rule this out first. The Sata F6 thing depends on the MOBO I think that most of the time you do have to f6 the drivers however on my ASUS this was not necsessay. My cut at this would be to take everything out of your system except for the few components that it requires to boot up and load the OS. RAM, Video Card, CD ROM, maybe the Floppy. Reformat your HD so that you can start over clean. Make sure that you have each cable plugged into the mobo correctly as well as the component. Reformat, then reload the OS. Start to load the system drivers one at the time rebooting after each is loaded. Pay attention to what you did last if the problem shows up again. This will probably point you to the issue. If every thing installs correctly without any problems then start putting the other hardware in one piece at the time loading the drivers andsoftware for each component then rebooting and ruung some stress test before moving to the next component.

Biostar gf7100p-m7s hard drive not working


I would flash the BIOS, sounds like something is corrupted, if that doesn't work then the blame has to be the HDD, you need to try booting with a different one, maybe a PATA too see if your problem goes away or changes. Any PATA will do, this is only a test.

Another SATA would even be better. Good luck.

Biostar gf7100 mp - wont boot with ext usb drive attached


Hi, What you have to do is shut down the machine, pull the CMOS battery(CR2032) out and out and put your jumper on pins 1-2 from 2-3. Wait 30 seconds and put the battery back in. After installing the battery, put your jumper back to pins 2-3 from 1-2. This should work.

Sound doesn't work on biostar gf7100p-m7s


it's a common problem of gf7100p-m7s series. Its depend on ur operating system. beoz many operating systems have their own audio drivers like windows vista. If u r using windows vista don't install audio drivers from ur motherboard disk. becoz i had faced this problem some months ago. if this is not hardware relative problem, u can see ur sound will work fine.
