Question about EliteGroup ECS GeForce6100SM-M (1.0) Socket AM2/ MCP61S/ SATA2/ A&V&L/ MATX Motherboard

1 Answer

GeForce6100SM-M Hello, Strange problems with this Motherboard. I enter into setup on boot up and go through turning on raid, enabling SATA, boot order ... After exiting setup, the bios messages no longer display. I have cleared the CMOS and can get back into setup, as soon as I commit changes and the machine restarts - no video. After doing a couple of CMOS resets the machine now beeps at about a one second interval. The memory I purchased was Patriot and does not appear on the certified vendors list. I am also using an older ATX motherboard that is only rated at 300 W Any thoughts?

Hmm, this may sound weird, but usually beep codes mean 1 of 2 things... memory problems or video problems. So if it is beeping and you have no display on the video, I would think, just maybe, it might be a video problem. =)

It looks to me like this board has onboard video, so are you using the onboard video or are you installing a video card?

If using onboard, perhaps, when you go into the bios to setup, you should set it to fail-safe defaults for the video.

If installing video, you should disable the onboard in the bios. But before doing that, maybe you should hold off on installing the video card until after you get the system up and running and then install the video card drivers before installing the video card. Then you can make changes to the bios video settings.

You might also want to upgrade your power supply, but 300 Watts will work for this board -- just barely but it will work.
So maybe you should disconnect everything but the bare necessities to get started.

Trying to create a server using the ASRock k7vt6 mobo


turns out the RAID enable in the bios is also used to enable the SATA. but this doesn't mean you have to use RAID to use SATA drives! there's a separate bios to configure the RAID that you can access after the initial boot screen by pressing tab. here, you can delete an existing array or create a new one. deleting the array makes the motherboard see both drives separately, like I wanted. problem solved :)

Sata drive cable positons on motherboard


The plug in sata ports do not matter for order unless you are plugging into ports reserved for RAID. Check your motherboard manual to see if any ports are reserved for this setup. If so change any cables out goint to those ports. You will also need to enter bios and make sure SATA is enabled in your settings. Once you have done this you should be able to boot and your drives will be auto detected. Hope this helps.

Hi m_k_bishop,
You must connect the CD-RW drive to the Secondary IDE connector on your board.
It can not be connected to the Primary IDE port.
(All SATA drives are seen as master drives in the bios).
With that in mind there shouldn't be any data cable connected to the Primary IDE slot.
When you first load the Bios menu screen you should see your CD-RW listed & you should see your SATA drive listed. Go to the title, " BOOT " in your bios.
(If your system has a floppy disk drive connected your Boot menu should read as follows);

First boot device [Floppy Disk]
Second boot device [Your CD-RW drive]
Third boot device [Your SATA drive as shown from the main menu]
No need for a fourth device.

Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart.

(At boot up re-enter your bios).
Next change the [RAID Mode] to SATA or Enabled anything but RAID.
Once completed save & exit the bios. If everything is connected correctly & you made the changes above your system should see your SATA drive & windows should install.
(Load the windows CD into your CD-RW drive).
The Asus manual lacks the proper information needed for you to make the correct setting changes in the bios.

Good luck m_k_bishop!
Post back if still have trouble... You shouldn't!

SATA RAID Controller Card Problem?


You are almost there. Go into your BIOS and enable RAID. Then your raid bios should show up on next boot.

Sata DVD burner


This is happening because the DVD SATA is booting like a first drive instead of the IDE Drive.
Be sure that your SATA drive is connected to a right port on your motherboard.
Go to your bios and into the boot options be sure that the IDE drive boot first than the SATA DVD.
******************************
Another way is connecting an adaptor SATA to IDE and connect your SATA DVD Drive as second IDE on your motherboard.

******************************
This will be fixing your problem.


Have a great day

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.
