Installed new mother board.

I have just installed a new motherboard, in fact the system is now new except or the hard drive. I have gone through the settings trying to remember how to format the hard drive.

Anyway this is the first new motherboard I have installed and I am now realizing there more to it than just plugging the damn things in. Cert 3 in IT really taught me stuff all. Anyway I would really prefer to fix it myself, I can get my lecturer to help but he shits me. Can someone offer sme advice,Please!

    Thanks but the operating system won't load. The disk drive is showing it is attached, and functioning. I have gone into the boot settings and it is listed but the operating system won't load. Like I said because the hard drive is an old one I think it needs to be formatted first. The hard drive did run in another asus system, just won't in this one. That why I believe i have missed something in the setup, maybe to do with the boot set or something. Someone has suggested the drivers but they are on the disk with asus operating system which won't boot.

If you did the assemble of your new pc than its time to install an operating system to your hard disk.

For this you should have a bootable cd of windows.
And than boot from the CD and than install a fresh window.

Sata power supply with ide only mother board?


If all the motherboard has is IDE connectors,then you can with an add in card. To do this you need to run the installation floppy during a fresh windows installation when it prompts for 3rd party scsi or raid drivers. I'd take the easy road & install a slave drive on the IDE or run an external hard drive in a usb port. Or the ultimate option,build a system using a board with sata on it. Prices are way down on hardware in general,but it's not going to stay that way.

I just bought a GA-MA785PM-US2H REV 1.0 Motherboard and had it up and running then I got smart! I ordered a pair of Ide to sATA converters for I thought my extra internal drives. I have a few drives...


I can't think how you managed to fry the motherboard unless by swapping the the connector incorrectly you managed to earth something out or put 12v through the 5v circuit.
If possible try a spare power supply but disconnect all the hard drives just in case. And I would test the old PSU before using it on the new board.
The good news is that CPU's are hardy creatures and should be OK as they take the higher rather than lower current.

Best of luck.

Hard disk not detecting


It is very likely that your motherboard is not capable of handling large HDDs. Too bad, friend. Use a smaller one, or may be two of them.

Emachine will not power up


By nothing else, from a technical standpoint this would mean literally nothing, the CPU fan, power supply fan, aux fan, disk drive not spinning up, etc. My experience with EMachines is their motherboards aint the best, have been known to take out hard drives and other peripherals to the mother board. If you are technically inclined the first thing to do is to bare out the system, Power Supply attached to the Mother Board w/ Cpu Monitor and Keyboard no Hard Drive and no Non esential boards installed, very carefully remove the memory and start it up all should be fine except it should give you a long beep from the PC Speaker indicating the Mother Board is aware there is no memory installed if it will not do this most basic of tests this is not good. If it does give you a health beep continue to install one item at a time, first the memory, the display should, if working, tell you there is a boot failure, of course, the hard drive is not connected, do so and keep on testing. Without knowing what type of mother board you have, most likely an AT with integrated peripherials the process to determine exactly what the problem is would take hands on trouble shooting. If you dont get the beep indicating the mother board cant determine if memory is installed and truley nothing else is on it is more likely the mother board. There are several good ones online that will fit your case if you want to go this route. Or is it time to upgrade ?

Installed a new motherboard but can't run the recovery discs


Well in fact there is nothing to do but buy a new version of XP.
You see the version of XP built into the machine is an OEM version manufacturers use that recognises a particular Motherboard.
If a new motherboard is introduced the old operating system will 'Think' this new cant have this and wont work.

You would as you are on line contact Microsoft direct
And tell them the new mother board/ existing drive story and they will possibly send you a release key.

Recognize the new mother board?


Before you install the new motherboard make sure you have all of Windows updates installed on the hard drive. Microsoft is working hard to include many new devices all the time. You should have no problem booting into Vista after the motherboard is intalled and your motherboard should come with a driver disk to install any drivers that Vista may miss.

MoBo Replacement


did you go into the new bios and check to make sure you have the hard drive setting on auto, then check your boot order that the drive is first to boot., if that doesnt work create a floppy boot disk (google it) and see if you see the hard drive when you do that.
