Question about ASUS A7V8X Motherboard

Presario SR1030NX - with a ASUS A7V8X-LA motherboard, won't boot.

Hello. I have a Presario that has a ASUS A7V8X-LA motherboard. My problem is that it won't boot. I don't even get a screen. All the lights are on and the fans are running but I noticed the the hardrive indicator light on the front panel stays on even though the drive isn't connected to the board. I've tried taking all the connections loose and even removing the processor and the battery. But with no success. I don't think that the board is dead because the pc was booting fine but then one day it just stopped. I did change hard drives some time ago. What are some additional steps I could take to resolve the problem?

Those are notoriously bad boards. i have worked on 2 or 3 of those boards and founds its adefect on some voltage regulator on motherboard..
best thing u can do is upgrade motherboard and cpu and ram in a combo.. don't forget power supply unit, new stuff needs at least 350watts

Sata unable to recognize my book 500gb

The A7V8X-LA motherboard only supports SATA1. Your new hard drive is likely SATA2 (SATA-II). You'll likely need to change jumpers on the drive to make it compatible with SATA1.

It's a tiny bit slower than SATA2 (okay, twice as slow). But, it's still faster than PATA (IDE).

Wow, just buy a gaming computer. The burn-in, compatible components, warranty, all those things are sooo nice. Take a lot of burden off the whole system.

AlienWare has really good stuff.
