Question about AMD ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 ( Sold Out) (ASA8N32) Motherboard

Open Question

A8n32-sli deluxe was working ok, now doesnt see the sata ports

Rig has worked fine for a year, i paused a game, came back to find blue screen with exceptional error showing. i have 2 opticals on ide2, 160g ide hdd on ide1 but also 2 x 80g sata hdd. Now the comp wont startup because XP is on one of the sata drives and none of the sata drives are being recognised anymore. Swapped sata hdd to spare m/c with their cables etc they are seen fine, Been into BIOS, settings are set to sata enabled ok, Cleared the CMOS and checked settings again, none of the four sata sockets seem to be working. Its been suggested i should flash an updated BIOS, is that a likely solution?

    Tried ram swap/change positions (corsair cmx1024-3500LLPRO X 2) no change. Facts are that any IDE hdd or CD/DVD drives that are connected to IDE1 or 2 are "seen" and work fine, but any SATA HDD plugged into any of my 4 sata sockets are not "seen" at all. Thats my big problem because my OS XP is on my SATA drive so hangs up asking for an HDD with OS on. Tried the SATA drive in a spare comp. and its "seen ok". The computer has been working fine for 18 months and was on when it decieded it couldnt see the SATA sockets anymore.

    pls consider changing RAM and let me know if it helps BIOS is not a solution here and might be risky in some cases it can completely ruin ur motherboard if not loaded properly no use for bios in this case

    kindly change RAM if u have 2 chips try one at a time

SOURCE: cannot detect ide1 and ide2 even bios setting set

Many times this problem is due to incorrect cable connections. Check your manual for correct cable connections of devices to IDE1 and IDE2. More than one drive may be connected to each cable but master devices for each channel must be connected in a certain manner on each cable.

2nd sata connected and xp won't boot


Hi,
It seems you have not made the second SATA the slave of first SATA. You'll have to fix the jumper pin in the designated slot to make the second SATA the slave. a1d66e3.jpg

A8N32 BSOD PROBLEM


I had a similar problem with this board after putting in a new sata drive I got Bsod as windows xp started loading.
There is some kind of conflict with SP3, Sata and usb.

The solution for me was to boot while having a 4GB usb drive pugged in. It starts up fine now. If I remove the usb drive it bsod´s again.

Blue screen in A8N32 SLI Deluxe Motherboard which worked excellently-ACPI


I had this issue myself. It took a very long day of searching... but all I ended up having to do was disabling the parallel port in BIOS. (I even went so far as to update BIOS, and the bugger just wouldn't load past the Windows loading screen unless I turned off that stupid parallel port.

I know this solution is late, but maybe it could help.

Motherboard not starting Bios but fans start


Yes, had exactly the same problem earlier this week, the bios chip may be faulty, as you know all other components work, so it's down to the motherboard and a replacement is required
