Question about ASUS Intel 440BX Chipset CUBX-L Motherboard

How much big HDD can i connect to my ASUS-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.

Re: How much big HDD can i connect to my ASUS-CUBX-L...

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.

I am using a compaq presario SR 1435IL. I want to know whether i can use two internal hard disks and also upto what capacity is it supported I already have a 320 GB western digital hard disk. Does it...

hi, i believed there is no possible way of putting 2 internal HDD in 1 laptop, seems the area of the existing HDD inside is already limited and also crowded of some other parts...and its not designed for 2 HDD either. the best way for me to advice is upgrade the existing HDD to higher capacity from the existing " GB " to " T " or add up a big capacity 2.5 " pocket size external HDD.

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

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

The BIOS may not be able to support a hard drive of such a large capacity. Check the motherboard manufacture's WEB site to see what size hard disk the BIOS can support. There maybe a BIOS upgrade that will allow the motherboard to support larger hard disk capacity.

yes the mother board supports SATA However if you connect large Disks to the SATA connectors they are recognized correctly with full size.

Format 320 GB HDD problem

Have tou tried the mangement in windows, My computer> right click>manage, then disk management and then right click on your hard drive and then one of the options is to format. Although only 127gb will show and the rest should show as a seperate partition, do the same with this to implement it. If no other partition shows you may have to upgrade your motherboard bios to suport large capacity disks.

CPU Upgrade on ASUS CUBX

no a P4 uses a different ZIF socket type the the one on your motherboard. You can only use a pentium 3, so if you are looking for more speed upgrade your memory instead.
