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. I have so much other stuff going on my bran is not functioing i swear. 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.

I want you to try first swap the power supply box  of the PC if no change ?
go to the CPU socket remove the CPU check if any component is burnt that area if ok put a new CPU  then on it . 
If still behaving the same ,then the mother board is bad get a new mother board

Good 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.

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.
