If you have more than 1 device on the ribbon cable, make sure they are both on CS(cable select) or one is on master and one is on slave.

Next disconnect all the drives from the board and just hit the del key to enter the BIOS. Select advanced tab to make sure SATA is active, otherwise you will bypass any sata and go only to ide channels.

Once the sata is active, check boot sequence and select CD/DVD as 1st boot priority save and exit, on the reboot turn unit off and attach all cables to the board. Reboot.

Have A-bit IS7-V2 with Windows XP 2002 3.06 Intel Celeron, 1GB memory. When running full scan or watching videos, the tower starts beeping with a short beee- dooop type warning that repeats continually for...



the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM is securely seatedOne bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

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 there probably old and 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 electic 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
hope this helps

Hi! I have a pc with abit is7-e2 motherboard.. And when i start the pc a red led turns on the board... There is no picture on the screen. I already checked the video card but its working


Just how did you check the video card if you get no image on the screen?
Try another monitor with your computer. If you still get no image, then it's your video card or another component.
If your computer will not pass the POST (power on self test) then you will not get any video output.
Culprits can be the hard drive, the CD, the memory, the motherboard, or the CPU. I would disconnect everything but the CPU, memory, and video and try to start it to narrow the problem. But first, try another monitor.
I've even seen a bad power supply that seems to work keep the video from working.

Motherboard does not recognise new SATA hard drive


Is your board an ABIT? If so then here is the link to select your motherboard and download the latest BIOS. Make sure to read the web sites instructions on how to update your BIOS. Let me know if you still have issues.

I can try and suggest you check the cables from you CD-ROM, any sort of damage the CD might have. Or then again, if your Hard Drive is SATA connected, then you'll need to load the SATA controler (F6 on the windows instalation) And, in last case, either upgrade your bios or try a different CD-ROM drive unit. But I would defenatly put my money on the cables.
