    you don't have audio or sound because the drivers are probably not installed. What type of motherboard do you have? What laptop/desktop do you have?

You need to turn off the computer, unplug it then press the power button for a few seconds to make sure the power was relived from the motherboard. Next you need to open the case so you can see inside it, now before placing the hard drive in the case just touch the inside of the case somewhere on the frame, you want to make sure that you do not cause a static shock to the motherboard.

There are two things that need to be plugged in. You need to plug
in the power plug and the Ide cable or sata cable. If you are adding this or replacing one, just look at the way the one inside is installed and do the same thing for the one you are putting in.

If you leave the PC then go back to put in the drive, touch the case again. If you have anyother questions, please post back, everyone
is more than willing to help you.

How can I use a SATA HDD in a 7NF-RZ motherboard? What cables/adapters are required?


Hey there. To install SATA devices on any motherboard follow these steps:
1- Make sure your Motherboard supports SATA, a 7NF-RZ works fine.

2- Install the HDD on your case, usually you have to screw it in or if you have a newer case you can lock it in place with a latch.(The SATA slots on a case are usually above the optical drive slots).

3-If you have another HDD already installed, and you don't want the new HDD to have system files, make sure it's designation is set to Slave. To do this, remove the jumper on the HDD pins(a white plastic connector) with tweezers, and, according to your HDD specifications, move it up or down to Slave designation.

4-Use a SATA cable from your Power Supply and connect it to the HDD, then, use a SATA adaptor cable which should have come with your HDD and connect it to the HDD, then to your Motherboard SATA adaptor(these vary from motherboard to another, so use your Manual to specify where it is).

5-Boot up your computer, and enter BIOS. Usually press either F2,F5,F12 or Esc. After that go to Auto-Detect drivers. When you're done, Save & Exit.

You should have successfully installed your new HDD!

Hello, My my motherborad is ASUS p5rd1-vm;RAM1GB and hard disk is PATA 80 GB but the HDD is having some kind of problem and the windows have shown a warning about it several times. Now i want to buy a...


Yes, it's compatible with the motherboard, no, it's not compatible with the XP install disk because it doesn't have SATA support. And since Asus doesn't provides it special driver needed (one that must be put on a floppy) it means that you simply cannot install XP on this disk.
All you can do is to obtain another PATA hdd what ever its size and install XP in it. Then put the new SATA disk in and use it to store all the installed programs and all your files on it. As a bonus you won't lose them if the new PATA disk fails or XP gets corrupted.
Or install Vista or 7 instead of XP, the have support for SATA disks

> cannot find HDD
> tried new HDD

Using the new HDD should have "solved" the "cannot find HDD" problem, if you assume that the motherboard is functioning correctly, and if you assume that "use HDD" is "enabled" within the "BIOS SETUP" mode on the computer.

So, either:
* the "new" HDD is defective,
* the motherboard is malfunctioning,
* the BIOS SETUP has been set to "ignore" the HDD.

Hi.
Xp will not detect the sata hdd you have to install the sata driver before the installation begins by pressing the F6 key or you can disable the SATA native support in the BIOS to install Xp.

Few steps to check your harddisk status on the motherboard would resolve this issue. Checkin to the cmos setup and look for the detection of the HDD and the size it shows once you have done a formating.

Vista 64 bit shows issues at times while installing a new SATA 1TB HDD. Check if the 1TB HDD is installed on to SATA 0.

Use a WD Disk Manager and format the HDD initially and then try install Vista on to it. Else if this doesnt work on the system, Put the HD on to another working system and Format it with NTFS File system and try installing Vista.. You will be successful. Good Luck.

How to install SATA HDD for asus motherboard P5RD1-VM?


Do you have previous Seegate Harddisk or SATA one?

If the SATA is installed previoulsy then it is not to much difficult to install a new SATA HDD. But if you are trying to install Sata on Seegate HDD or in combination then it can not be done.

Let me know in either case, with more detail as you can provide here (For OS, Hardware Specification etc)

Thanks
