Question about ASUS Intel 440BX Chipset CUBX-L Motherboard
I have an ASUS-CUBX-L motherboard and i am currently planning to upgrade my hard disk, since my old HDD crashed. I doubt whether this mother board supports the 160 GB and 320 GB PATA IDEs (Seagate or Western Digital) available now. Can some one confirm me on this. If these hard disks are not compatible please let me know which is the highest one i can use. My busted hard disk was a Maxtor 80GB.
The size of the drive that will be detected can vary on a number of things: bios version, and OS.
They will both "physically" work, but the full capacity may not be "seen".
The 160 should work fine, but the 320 may only "show" as a 250 or 300.
My best advice is to flash the bios to the latest, and start with the 160. Install your OS, and connect the 320 as a slave after the OS install, and check its properties.

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including
the leads from your
"((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and
are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem
follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of
the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to
have an end to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
hope this helps
