Check the cable
make sure the hd is getting power
try another sata connection by swapping the cable from dvd device
make sure you set the drive select some drives require it
do not use cable select
make sure the battery back up has 3 volts
you could try shorting out the bios to reset the motherboard - there should be a jumper on the board, turn power off, the jumper or connect the two pin so the short out, than turn on machine, just for few seconds and turn off, remove the jumper.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx important xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
before or when booting the system push F10 to access bois
setup all devices, dvd, video card, if that dont work you can try F1 or F2 when you start the system
when you exit the bios make sure to save it i think F10 save and reboot. so save new changes and device ID.

I got a new SATA 500gb HDD but the motherboard wont detect it.


Access to your Bios Setup & configure the Bios settings.

Features Setup Page : This page sets up some parameters for peripheral devices connected to the system.

CMOS SETUP UTILITY - Copyright (C) 1985-2003, American Megatrends, Inc.
Features Setup
OnBoard Floppy Controller : Enabled
Serial Port1 Address 3F8/IRQ4 : Enabled
OnBoard IR Port : Disabled
Parallel Port Address : 378
Parrllel Port Mode : ECP
ECP Mode DMA Chnnel : DMA3
Parallel Port IRQ : IRQ7
OnBoard PCI IDE Controller : Both
OnBoard SATA-IDE
: Enabled *(Make sure This is enabled)
Audio Device : Enabled
Modem Device : Auto
Ethernet Device : Enabled

If you have got a SATA III HDD, ie if it is a Western Digital Sata III you need to configure the jumpers to work with your older Sata interface port.(Only Sata 1 & 2 ports on your Mainboard Socket 478). As for Seagate Sata III HDD, the configuration is automatic.

If your 500GD HDD is not detected, try updating the BIOS!
A word of caution "Updating the Bios is not for the Novice" Do it at your own risk. Failure in updating the Bios may render your Mainboard useless.

Hope it helps.

Hardware initiate failed please check device.. system cant detect myh sata HDD.. need help


Hi. Thanks for your question.

Troubleshooting this problem will take few steps to complete.
  1. Please try and switch your HDD Sata cable from one port on motherboard to another available. If there is no available slot just try and disconnect your DVD drive for now and plug it into that slot.
  2. If no luck with first method you need to make sure that your Hard Drive is still operational. Take it to your friend or anyone who would let you try it in their PC.
  3. Make sure you use known good cable all the time. Buying new cable would be the best, or using available one for testing/now (dvd drive one?)
After you completed them test you should be able to tell if your cable is ok is port on motherboard ok and is it the hard drive that failed.
I hope you will get your computer working soon. Please do not hesitate to ask more questions if this is needed. Thank You for using FixYa

Controller MSI K8N Neo4 does not work


SHUT DOWN COMPUTER AND CLEAR CMOS BY RESETTING JUMPER ON MOTHERBOARD AND THEN RETURN JUMPER TO NORMAL POSITION OR USE RESET BUTTON. UNPLUG ALL HDD SATA CONNECTORS FROM HDD. BOOT COMPUTER TO BIOS. MAKE SURE ENABLE ALL SATA IS ENABLED, PRESS F10 AND EXIT.YOU WANT TO SHUT DOWN AGAIN. NOW REATTACH SATA HDD AND CONNECTORS AND BOOT TO BIOS AGAIN. NOW HIT F10 AND LET COMPUTER RESTART AND LOAD INTO THE OS. LOGON AND CHECK DEVICE MANAGER..SHOULD BE THERE. IF NOT CHECK MOTHER BOARD WEB SITE FOR BIOS UPDATE. IF BIOS UPDATE DOESN'T DO THE TRICK, SHUT DOWN AND DISCONNECT THE IDE DRIVE, UNLESS IT CONTAINS YOUR OS. TRY BOOTING TO BIOS AND CHANGE ORDER OF 1ST BOOT OPTIONS, HIT F10 AND EXIT AND ALLOW COMPUTER TO BOOT TO OS, THEN LOGON, GO TO DEVICE MANAGER AND REMOVE IDE AND RESTART, ONLY IF THIS HDD DOES NOT CONTAIN OS. YOU SHOULD BE FINE AFTER THIS, OR INSTALL YOUR OS ON THE SATA HDD.

Bios not detecting 320gb sata drive


Double check the jumper configuration, You might also want to check the cables and ports incase that's the problem because a properly jumpered SATA drive shouldn't have any compatibility issues. Also check if *********** board supports the SATA ? Let me know if this works..thanks. Mike

Windows XP does -not- have native SATA support and therefore will not recognize a SATA drive without first installing 3rd party drivers.
To go around this problem without installing drivers check your BIOS. There might be something in there where the bios will emulate an IDE controller.

If not, you'll need a floppy and the sata drivers. A flash drive will also do if the motherboard bios supports legacy USB. To find the drivers, simply go to the motherboards manufacturers website.

SATA problem


Your bios is corrupted & needs to be flashed.

You will need to download the bios flash utility & a bios file.
creat a floppy disk with these to files that you can download from here. Click the link below.

If you are not comfortable with flashing your bios you can order one from Asus by calling 510-739-3777 CA. Please have your model Number ready & S/N located on a white sticker on the pink serial port.

Good Luck!
