Question about MSI RC410M-L Motherboard

1 Answer

Mother board cant detect my Sata HDD, please advise me urgenly...

I have Intel 3.00 GHz/4 M cache on MSI RC 410 (A17173MS) motherboard, 1GB RAM and 80GB western digital SATA HDD. I have Windows XP on it. It was working fine for last 1 year. However one day suddenly bios took a long time to boot, like a bios is hang. Then after 2 minutes it went ahead but it was not able to detect my SATA harddisk. The disk has 2 partitions C and D My data is present on these partitions . I pressed F2 to enter the bios and there it shows "Not Installed" for the SATA drives. It is supposed to show my harddisk there but it is not showing. I replaced both the cables (Data and Power) but no use. I tried to use other SATA ports on motherboard, but still no use.i have also tried to my Sata HDD on another PC and I found it working normally, My motherboard is able to detect my DVD writer & IDE HDD on the same IDE port. Toggling this jumper has no effect in detecting the harddisk. Now also if I keep my SATA harddisk connected to system, then bios takes 2 minutes to go ahead then stopped not to find any HDD to boot from, If I remove the cables of SATA disk then bios immediately goes ahead.also I have tried IDE HDD and mother board can detect it normally, problem is in Sata only, Can somebody please help here ?

    This may sound obvious, but is SATA "Enabled" or set to "Auto" in the Bios Settings? Ian. If not enable it, re-boot, go into bios again. If the SATA drives appear, select each on in turn to force the bios to recognise them, the re-boor normally. Hope this helps. Ian.

Hi,

You could put either of the graphics you mention in that motherboard providing you get the PCI-Express versions of them.

The motherboard will support a DDR3 structured graphics card in all cases at that is determined by the card not the motherboard as you get specific drivers for them which come included with the card or you can download the latest drivers from ATI or nVidia's support websites.

That motherboard will also support a gigabyte plus graphics card.



Kind regards.

Can i install xp-sp3 without Sata driver on motherboard 'DG31PR'


You have a board with 4 SATA ports on it and a SATA HDD. The hardware detection routines will see this and load the SATA drivers. Why would you even want to try to set it up without them?

I have Intel 845GVSR Motherboard, 2.4GHz Processor, 1GB RAM


Yes it will. Just make sure to buy the proper hdd. If your board has SATA II connections then you would need a SATA II hdd. If it is just SATA then a SATA II drive would not work. Your other option would be an IDE hdd. If your system has a cable that looks like a big ribbon connected to your existing hdd then it's an ide drive. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Ram upgradation for 845glad mother board


Hi! If you have orignal Intel D845 then you need ram less than 333 Mhz (Around 266mhz or so) and do remember to check that it is advisable not to use RAM of more than 1GB as you won't be able to find a 1GB RAM(DDR1) with 266 Mhz or less.
