Open Question

Hi, I have an acer 7520G laptop, amd turion x2 250 Gb disk 4 gb ram etc etc... When adding another SATA 500gb drive in the bay it won't start up anymore, doesn't get passed the microsoft start up screen, just sits there and waits ;-( If I remove the added drive it works fine? it seems to be a pretty straight forward procedure but obviously something is not working right... on the HD sled there are clearly marked Main and Second referring to the HD drives. second drive is a 500gb Samsung, Original drive is a 250 gb Western Digital! Anybody else experiencing these problems?? Cheers Joe

Hi, I'm having K8V-MX Asus mother board with AMD 3000+ processor wih 1GB DDR ram, with 80 GB PATA Segate HDD connected. After adding 500GB SATA HDD to this mother board, my system performance is very low....


Hi,
Thanks for the details. I have used K8V-MX Asus motherboard and found it very reliable with quite reasonable performance. It definately supports 500 GB Sata drive and there must not be any issues after increasing just the storage. However, Operating System upgrade may result in sluggish performance. Drivers dont seem to be an issue to me either.
I suggest to review a few points detailed as under: -
- K8V-MX Asus Supports RAID, so, check for any RAID Drivers/ settings. (You dont have to use RAID for two Hard Drives of different make, capacity and speed). Try using one disk at a time having same Operating System (e.g. Windows XP) and compare the performance.
- Infact SATA Drives have better data transfer rate than IDE, which results in enhanced performance.
- Some Programs (that you may not be using with 80GB drive) Like antivirus may result in decreased performance.
- Please Review you Operating System environment and software installed. Make sure that the new drive & Operating System are free of any virus, which results in CPU Utilization upto 100%.
- Also, motherboard supports Max 2GB RAM, so you may consider adding more RAM.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Can i connect 500GB sata hard disc and 2 - 2GB ddr2 RAM to this mother board????


Hi,

The motherboard will take a 500GB SATA hard drive as there are 4 SATA ports on the board. As for the memory then it will only take 2GB maximum.

Hi I have a Fujitsu Mobile MHV2120BH 120 GB SATA Hard Drive, I want to install XP home on it. But Ive been reading that I need Sata/raid drivers for the computer to see the drive. I have a HP Pavilion...


The SATA drivers will be on the XP disk. Just put the XP disk in your CD drive, partition the new disk and load the OS.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.
