Hi,

Based on experience, I have installed 120, 160, 250 and 400 Gb Seagte Barracudas on an ECS K7SSA and all were recognized at the BIOS/CMOS level.

Basic requirement would be UltraDMA 66/100 or "ATA 100" as you posted. There is some claimed improvement when using 80-pin IDE cable over the standard 40-pins.

    Hi again,

    All IDE hard drives are 40 pins, it is just the cable that have 40 or 80wires/pins. The extra 40 wires/pins in the 80 pin cable is basically shielding/grounding to provide interference free data transfer specially with the UDMA 100s.

    Cheers.

This mainboard supports UltraDMA 66/100. UDMA is a technology that accel-erates the performance of devices in the IDE channel. To maximize performance, install IDE devices that support UDMA and use 80-pin IDE ca-bles that support UDMA 66/100.

Lost sound when i replaced hard drive


You must have re-installed Windows when you replaced the hard drive. After installing Windows, you need to re-install the drivers too. You may have a driver disc that came with your computer. If you don't have it, you can search for the drivers on Google, if you know the make and model of your computer. After downloading the drivers, install them. You didn't realize but you probably also need to install the video/graphics driver.
However, here's an easy way out:
Use this driver scanning tool, which scans your computer for the needed drivers. It has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free tool from here, or directly from this link.

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

Hope that helps,
Regards,

Elite Group K7S5A Boot Problem


Try this... Remove all cards, hard drive(s) and cables, such as cdrom and floppy, except the video connection so that you can see what is going on. Go to the bios setup. Set all of the bios settings to default as you exit to reboot. Then try again. By setting the bios, that should take care of it. Then replace the other items, cards one by one and watch the reactions.
Hope it works.

Start up error message issue: floppy disk fail


if im correct, you havent installed a floppy drive yet...
while the comp is booting press esc (on some comps its F10 it should say on the screen) and access the boot sequence..in there there is a list of boot items...they always list floppy drive as the first boot drive in case you need to recover your comp...remove floppy drive from your boot list making sure that your hardrive (C) is first drive to boot.
After you get your comp set up, you may want to change that sequence in case you ever have problems with your HDD

Rewire the motherboard k7s5a


well really you just have to put the wires to where they fix right. but for some wires, they look the same so you have to find a lable on the side of the wire and try to find the same lable on the motherboard. in some cases there are no lablings so it would be much hard to tell you how. but if thats the case i will do so.

How do rewire the motherboard k7s5a


Go to this Asus site. Fill in the needed information on the right. This will than take you to your board. Download the manual.
Using the manual you will be able to set up your switches.
On the board and it is very hard to see. Every pin has a plus sign "+", that is the power. Black and some times white is ground. Other colors like red and green are "+".
