You have to be careful here with these switches and settings. If you have an IDE motherboard and cabling and drives, the boot drive should be MASTER on IDE0, plugged into the end of the cable, with (probably) the CD drive plugged into the middle connector of the same cable and set to SLAVE. The other two hard drives connect one as MASTER and the other as SLAVE on IDE1, with MASTER on the end of the cable. The jumper settings for all four devices will be different, so look carefully on the device to make sure you set the jumpers correctly.

Do all this with the machine unplugged of course. :>)

Good luck...

Getting three beeps with my asus m4a785t-m motherboard initializi


Okay, not much else is mentioned about the system so I would assume you have one CD/DVD drive and now two HDDs and your new HDD is still set to factory default of "Cable Select" or CD, if not and the new hard drive is a replacement for a damaged OS (Operating System) drive, then you need to insert the Windows OS Installation disk prior to booting and set the system to check your CD-ROM before checking Hard disks, for the OS.

First off if IDE, you have a ribbon that resembles this [====[========[ the furthest to the right would be what plugs into you motherboard, being the one with the furthest distance between itself and the next plug/connector.The one on the other end is for the Master drive and teh middle one is for Slave.

If only one HDD, then the jumper for the new drive needs to be set to Master and the CD/DVD-ROM needs to be set to Slave.
  • If two HDDs & one CD/DVD Rom, On the primary IDE Controller, set the OS HDD to Master, the CD/DVD-Rom to Slave & put the second HDD on the secondary IDE Controller as Master.
  • If two HDDs & 2 CD/DVD-Roms they must be set up on totally different IDE controllers to cancel out the chance of cross-communication. This happens on some systems because of having two CD/DVD Roms and/or two IDEs. So, we set the OS HDD to Master on the Primary IDE Controller & we set the CD/DVD-Rom to Master on the second IDE controller and the
I would normally say that three beeps from the motherboard itself would be either graphics card or memory problems, normally solved by simply pulling either or both and reseating them. Wear Nitrile gloves (the blue ones) to keep oils and static charge from damaging the components, ground yourself &/or touch the case before and while pulling the components. Check this site for "Post Codes" if the beeps are coming from the MoBo... if you have Award BIOS (should show what BIOS brand when booting up the system)

Award BIOS Post Codes

If three beeps from the system itself, then that would say it can't find the OS... and you might possibly also find an error on the monitor, stating something similar to "no power to monitor".

If you don't have an illustration on your drive telling you what pins are for what when it comes to the jumper, then search google for the drive brand and the word "jumper" or words "jumper configuration" or "jumper placement"

example: Maxtor Jumper configuration

If the system is SATA only (I believe it to have at least one IDE controller unless the board's controllers are all blue & black, to which I see a controller, but can't tell if it is FDE or IDE), then you'll most likely have to enable the SATA controllers in BIOS and set the boot preference/sequence/order as mentioned above, to check the correct disk for the OS, after removable devices & CD-ROM. Should be that order anyway, with floppy seek disabled to save wear on the head.

Hope that was not too much and that it helps!

My samsung cd-rom sc-148c drive is not working. It is not listed in "My Computer". I have uninstalled and reinstalled it but that does not work.


Is the CD-ROM drive on a separate cable on the second IDE controller on the desktop motherboard? Then the jumper setting can be set to Master or Slave if no other drive is connector to this cable.
If the CD-ROM is also on the first IDE controller and IDE cable as the hard drive then the jumper setting on the CD-ROM must be set to SLAVE because the hard drive would be jumpered as MASTER.
Check the BIOS setting to see if the CD-ROM drive is detected.
If the CD-ROM still does not work after you checked and configured the CD-ROM drive, then is is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Trying to install Windows XP SP1 onto HD with this Motherboard. System will not boot from HD to start install.


Make sure your IDE hard disk drive is connected to IDE1 port and that the data cable is fully connected. Also check the jumper on the IDE drive. If you are using only one IDE hard disk drive set the jumper on the drive as a Master without a slave. If you are running two IDE hard disk drives set the primary drive's jumper as a Master with a slave. Set your second IDE disk drive's jumper as a slave. The master drive should be connected at the end of the data cable and the slave drive should be connected to the next data connector. Than check your bios settings. Power on the system and press the Delete key every 2 seconds until the bios menu loads. See page 3-1 in your manual. If you need the manual for the NF8-V MB click on the link provided below and download it;
http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=NF8-V&fMTYPE=Socket+754
You'll also need the program Adobe reader to view the manual. Adobe reader is a free download; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
Once you’re in the bios go to page 3-4, Standard CMOS Features.
Follow the instruction listed for IDE HDD Auto-Detection. Your HDD should be listed here. Than see page 3-7 in the manual. Open Advanced BIOS Features. A normal boot menu for the Abit would read;
First boot device Floppy disk drive (If one is connected). 2nd boot device should be (CD-ROM/DVD-ROM). Third boot device should list your primary hard disk drive's (Model number). Load your windows CD into your CD-ROM drive.
Once the settings above are set, press the F10 key to save your changes and exit the bios. Your system will auto restart. Windows should begin to load.

Cheers!
Mike

Hoew to install CD Drive


Hi,
You want to install a CD Drive. Ok you are Following these steps....
  1. Unplug the power cable from your power supply and open your Computer case.
  2. Determine which drive bay you are going to install a CD-ROM into. You should pick on of the uppermost drive bays
  3. Before you install a CD-ROM, make sure you have the proper jumper settings. You are only installing a single CD-ROM, set the jumpers as MASTER. The jumper settings are different for each CD-ROM drive, so consult your owner's manual so you know which pins to cover up.
  4. Once you have the jumpers set, install your CD-ROM in the computer's case. How you secure the CD-ROM in one of the uppermost drive bays depends on your case. Some CD-ROM drives have to be screwed into the drive bay.
  5. Connect the power to the back of the CD-ROM drive, then connect the ribbon cable to the back of the CD-ROM drive. Your ribbon cable has three connectors, one in the middle and one on each end. The middle connector is a SLAVE connector that is used if you would install an additional CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
  6. Connect one of the end connectors to the CD-ROM drive, and connect the other end connector to the appropriate spot on your motherboard. Note, hard drives and CD-ROM drives have the same style of connector on the motherboard. You want to connect your CD-ROM drive to the motherboard slot that isn't red or is the highest numbered of all the IDE slots.
  7. Power on your computer after you plug it in. Your computer should recognize the new CD-ROM. If it doesn't, go into your motherboards BIOS and search around for the IDE channels, they need to be set to automatically.
Thank U

My computer will not read any of my disk or install


when you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.

when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.

suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways

New (used) hard drive


Just remvoe the cd rom and then try to install your hard disk. if it is detected than it means there is a problem of setting master and slave in jumper.

So just check again your jumper settings and read the front side description of hard disk for jumper settings.
