Sounds like issues I've had in the past...
But the funny thing was that after all was said and done, the fix that I figured out what easy.
Let's see if this works for you.
Get into your motherboard's BIOS setup on bootup. Check into the first section of the BIOS labeled "Standard CMOS Settings". You should find settings for all drivers there.
You have a set of various settings such as "User" or "Auto" for each drive entry there. Set them all to Auto so that they can properly detect the drive's settings on startup.
If you use "User" it will be looking for user-defined settings for each drive channel. These don't typically work too well.
The only thing that eludes me here is this... What kind of drive is it? I'm assuming that it's an IDE drive. But it could also be a SATA drive.. Given it's size, tha'ts probably the case.
I'm not sure exactly how your BIOS is set up of course... But be dynamic and apply the principles I have described above to whatever settings you find in your board's BIOS.
You might also want to check to make sure that the jumper on the back end of the drive is set correctly, too. If it's a newer SATA drive that is capable of running at 300, then make sure to try setting it to the previous 150 speed and see if that works. It may mean that the drive's speed is set too high for the motherboard's SATA ports.
I'm more familiar with Seagate drives, though. Yours is a Western Digital. They're usually a bit different of course.
Keep us updated. :)

Flashing the bios is the best idea to start with. This will upgrade to the newest bios, which normally adds more features and fixes some bugs.
There is a small chance that this motherboard just doesn't support overclocking, but the majority of them do.
Below is the link to soyo's site and downloads for your model number. There was 4 or 5 bios updates. I would get the newest one.
Hope this helps

you can have any power supply you want on it aslong as its the right size for the case say for example you went out and bought a 1000W power supply you system would use around 200-400W depending whats installed it just means the other 600W dosnt get used

Testimonial: "thank you i need to know that it help me a lot moe"
one beep means the video card is not installed or is faulty so if its on board the board is faulty if you plugged one in then it may need re-seating
