Question about ASUS P5KPL-VM Motherboard

Open Question

I need a block schematic diagram please -

None of the four IDE drives and the floppy drive are recognised by the BIOS. I'm trying to decide whether this fault is caused by the collapse of one of the ALi chips; and if so, whether this board is now scrap. I need the block schematic to find out what the drives are connected to.

Try plugging the drives into another computer to see if they actually work, ie read discs etc if they do then try swapping the power supply out of your computer.. if this doesn't work then I would say your motherboard is dead. Good luck

SOURCE: Asus P5K-E Wifi/AP configuring sata as raid

I have 3 hard drives, one I have my windows system files on, and on the others I was planning on doing a mirrored raid. Is this possible? I couldn't get it to work, I put the hard drive mode into RAID mode or ACPI (or whatever the other mode was) and it doesn't allow me to boot into windows or anything, blue screen of death.
Only works in IDE mode, but I cant make it raid using IDE mode :"(

Bad BIOS checksum: the software on a chip on the motherboard has become corrupted.

Sometimes, you can find a "BIOS update" on the manufacturer's web-site, so that the contents of that chip can be refreshed,
i.e., by booting from a diskette (or from a USB memory-stick) that contains the replacement software.

Contact a qualified technician, and pay them for 1 hour of labour.
Or, replace the motherboard.

SOURCE: IDE Ports not working on ASUS P5LD2-VM Mobo

This MOBO requires a driver in order to run the EIDE slot, so before it can be used use the CD-ROM and master HDD in the standard IDE slot to run Windows up then install the drivers then you should be able to rearrange things to have HDD's in the EIDE and other stuff in IDE. this is the download site, its the 2nd oiption in the RAID category

Can I add the 3rd hard drive to XPS 400? Now it only recognises 2 even though there are 3 installed. All are sata and activated in BIOS.

Try going back in the BIOS ( setup menu ) and follow these keystroke commands. Holddown the <Alt> key and depress the <E> then the <F> keys insuccession. This will force the motherboard to load default settings and alsoforce the motherboard to redetect all IDE devices. Note: The selection for thefloppy drive will be set to ON. If you do not have one then you must disablefloppy in set up (BIOS) menu.

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

I recently had a hard drive failure on my HP Pavilion a610n. I decided to replace the IDE drive with an SATA drive. However, the computer will not recognize the SATA drive. I have tried plugging the SATA...

I'm not sure you can insert your OS disk to istall or not, so the solution depends on your being able to do so. It seems to me there's a strong possibility that the BIOS cannot see the drive because that software had basic drivers to recognise the IDE Drive the computer came with.

So, you have to locate the SATA Driver which can be loaded during installation of the OS from either a boot cd or boot floppy. WIndows Setup gives you a chance at the beginning of setup if you watch the progress bar below to press F6 if you need to load a "Third Party or RAID driver" A little further along the setup will stop and prompt you for this driver and you'll need it ready with the exterior CD drive or floppy drive attached with the media in it to load.

It's quite possible this is what you're going to have to do. If this isn't the solution, please don't trash my rating with a thumbs down click. I'm trying to help without complete info.

Can not pick up my hard drive

Check the jumpers on the HDD are not set to slave.

Try a different SATA channel (or IDE channel) on the MOBO.

Try different molex to power the drive up. Hold the drive when it is connected, does it hum indicating that the platter is spinning?

Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20.
If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows:
Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port.
Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port.

ATA Configuration
Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA]
S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller.
P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller.
On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]".
Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three.
First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.)
Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master.
Third boot device [ATA IDE drive]
If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive.
(Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it).
Save your changes & exit the bios.
Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number.
Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.

Gigabyte K8vm800M Motherboard Does Not Recognise Seagate SATA HDD

Needs help to recover crashed asus r2h bios

You need to put the battery back in, try to find an IDE floppy drive to use and if the new bios version hangs then download the old BIOS and reinstall that -a computer that hangs is not a successful install or the upgrade is wrong. Pulling the battery doesn't revert to the old BIOS, just default settings for the BIOS installed. Using a USB floppy for this is not a good idea as the usb drivers must load -might as well use a thumb drive if this is a laptop. For a desktop stick with the basic IDE floppy drive. Best of luck, Steve Medley

Strating up problem

Please update MB with the latest bios version:
Flash from a floppy disk. Re check bios after flash. Go to Boot section. Make sure you have the correct drive listed in the boot order. If trouble still continues. Go to the serial ATA SATA hard drive's manufactures site. Download the tools/utilities & set the drive up with their bootable floppy disk software.
(Do this without the IDE connected to the system). Try installing windows. You shouldn't have a problem. (The bootable floppy can also test the drive).

If problem returns, please include detailed results.

Motherboard fails to see Hard Drive...please help

Sounds like you lost an ide channel, swap the ide cables around, primary to secondary and secondary to primary. and see if it recognizes the hard drives and not the cdrom.

I lost an IDE channel and had to install a sata hard drive or run the hard drive and cdrom on the same ribbon. If you run HD and CDROM on same ribbon set both to CS (cable select)
