Re: No sound and not reading sata drive

What was the cause of the crash? Could it be related to the SATA drive or the sound problem?
You may need to enable SATA in the BIOS. Look closely at the BIOS options.
In Control Panel/Hardware/Device Manager/Sound look to see if the sound driver is installed. If not, look on the manufacturer's site for the driver and install it.
Make sure the sound is not muted and the hardware connections are correct.

Have a Dell Computer that was purchased in 2005 with Windows XP Home Edition installed. The computer had an alarm sounding and then just shut down and we cannot get it to come back on. We have tried...

kindly let me know the beep code sequence (the alarm) which you are getting. Just switch on the computer and carefully listen the alarm one long continuous beep or short beep or one long followed by one short. This information is necessary for providing you the solution. Online chat would have been more helpful to restore your pc.

Does not boot from SATA drive.

Hi Grumpy
It sounds like your mainboard is not set up to allow for a SATA boot drive.
Have a look in your bios and ensure the boot order is set to the SATA drive first
Then, make sure the SATA drive is formatted and has an operating system installed.
Alternatively, boot the system from a boot disk ( your XP or Vista disk will allow this) and check to see if the board can see the drive and can read the drive if it is already formatted.
If not, format it and install the O/S onto it and make sure you answer YES to the question " do you wish to boot from this drive?"
Both my systems use SATA drives and I only had a boot fault because the "pre-formatted drive" I bought was not formatted and formatting under windows during O/S installation solved this issue..

Problems with windows.

  1. Are you using a SATA drive or an IDE(PATA)?
  2. If using SATA, is SATA set up in bios as first boot or second after CDROM?
  3. If using PATA hard drive is the IDE channel working properly? Switch the CDROM and Hard drive ribbon cables on the motherboard.

Cant find my SATA HDD

Yes - find the chipset for the motherboard - go on intel website for that chipset - download the utility for F6 use [sata driver or raid controller] put these files on floppy or USB key - boot motherboard and when it says press F6 to instal SCSI or other drivers press F6 - the software will ask where the files are - use the correct file and carry on running the windows installation. This time your sata hard drive will be recognised and you can complete loading windows.

Please rate my assistance - thank you.

I can't use HDD sata on mainboard ASUS P5RD1-VM

Things need to be turned on in your bios patrohi. This is why windows didn't boot to the SATA. You need to use your manual & make sure the, Serial ATA Controller is [Enabled]
Within the Advanved menue under SouthBridge Configuration.
At the Main menue the SATA drive should be listed.
Boot settings need to change as well. At Boot Settings Configurations. Make sure your SATA drive is listed.
Boot order should list like, Floppy 1st, CDROM 2nd, SATA 3rd. The SATA will not list as a SATA but the model number of the SATA drive. Once all these settings are set save & exit. Your drive should show up for work & the windows CD should load.

SATA won't work

I think you're saying you've got XP installed, but the second drive isn't showing up.
You need to format the drive.
Right-click My Computer/Manage/Disk Management.
The drive should show as unallocated. Right click and select format. It may ask you to create a partition first.
