Question about ASUS Intel 440LX Chipset P2L-N Motherboard

1 Answer

I need a CD-ROM drive and cable for an Asus P2L-N/P2E-N board

I am trying to add a slim CD-ROM drive to my Asus motherboard. It can only be done by connecting it to their 50 pin connector on the board. I have tried a dozen as a slave on the primary IDE channel and they are either invisible or conflict the hard drive (the hard drive is set as a master).Do you know where I can buy the miniature 50 pin cable and most important where I can buy either the drive ready to install or he 50 pin to slim drive adapter board. I am speaking of the small board that attaches to the back of the drive and converts the 50 pin cable to the miniature connector that is on almost all slim laptop type drives.
I have run into this exact problem when trying to add a 50 pin cable CD-ROM drive to a thin client Unisis box and gave up on it too.

Is this what you are looking for?


As for the conflict with the master drive, double check the jumper settings. Some drives have different settings for Master, Slave and Single drive. When given the option, try CS (Cable Select) and them them sort it out themselves.

It's also not usually recommended to connect an optical drive on the same cable as a hard drive. Sometimes you can't help it, but the optical is going to slow down the transfer rate of the HD.

I search audio drivers for ASUS P2E-B Don't work sound


i assume you bought this motherboard secondhand, otherwise it would have come with a drivers disk and manual which would be probably very helpful right now, chances are you could have a defective board, its not that uncommon. if you try everything else you can i would suggest taking it into a local computer store and getting them to give it a once over

Should the hard drive and the cd rom use the same connection cable to a M2N68-AM PLUS motherboard?


It is recommended that you use a separate cable for hard drives, and CD-ROM drives, especially if your CD-ROM drive is a CD burner. This goes for any computer system. Placing a hard drive and CD-ROM drive on the same cable can introduce performance problems, especially when reading from a CD or writing to a CD.

ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard configuration


Serial ATA drives are pretty much plug and play. You just need to install them and set them up as a primary drive in your bios settings. The IDE devices can be connected on the same ribbon cable but need to have jumpers set on the back to determine which device is primary or slave. If the IDE devices are on different ribbon cables then most likely the hard drive jumper setting should be set to master or master (single drive). The CD-ROM drive jumper on master. BIOS should detect all drives You also need to assign the boot order in BIOS. CD-ROM should be the first boot device to load and install the new OS onto the primary hard drive.

Please Tell me, ASUS P4S8X-MX Problemn


First of all, try to reseat all the cables inside your computer just make sure there aren't any loose connections.

If that doesn't work you will have to reset your BIOS. (Follow the instructions in your motherboard manual.)

If even after resetting the BIOS the problem is not solved, you may have to replace your CMOS Battery.
