Unplug your computer.
On the end of the disk-drive, there is three-by-two grid of gold pins, labelled MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect). Move the jumper to the 'CS' position.

Start your computer.
Press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP.
Use "auto detect IDE drives", and the 160GB drive should be recognized.

Cant install any boot disk to my new asus sabertooth mb


If you can get into the BIOS then your computer is working. The most likely fault is the HDD settings make sure you try with AHCI selected as well as with any other settings. You don't say if the HDD is showing in the BIOS. Check all of your connections are good and, especially your drive connections. Make sure the Boot priority is Optical drive before HDD.

I have an Asus K8N-E motherboard which does not seem to support booting from USB. Any suggestions?


You must configure the BIOS prior to booting up from USB. With the USB inserted, go to the BIOS setup and change the boot priority as explained on the official user's guide from ASUS (page 61):

The south chipset bridge of my Asus k8n-vm motherbard heats up


85 to 95 is ok. Anything higher than100 is pushing it. If possible add a fan to the side of the system case (Best choice) or you can buy a south bridge fan. You're MB doesn't have holes in the MB to attach a chipset fan but you can still attach a cooler on to the chipset. Like this fan; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103155

Controller MSI K8N Neo4 does not work


SHUT DOWN COMPUTER AND CLEAR CMOS BY RESETTING JUMPER ON MOTHERBOARD AND THEN RETURN JUMPER TO NORMAL POSITION OR USE RESET BUTTON. UNPLUG ALL HDD SATA CONNECTORS FROM HDD. BOOT COMPUTER TO BIOS. MAKE SURE ENABLE ALL SATA IS ENABLED, PRESS F10 AND EXIT.YOU WANT TO SHUT DOWN AGAIN. NOW REATTACH SATA HDD AND CONNECTORS AND BOOT TO BIOS AGAIN. NOW HIT F10 AND LET COMPUTER RESTART AND LOAD INTO THE OS. LOGON AND CHECK DEVICE MANAGER..SHOULD BE THERE. IF NOT CHECK MOTHER BOARD WEB SITE FOR BIOS UPDATE. IF BIOS UPDATE DOESN'T DO THE TRICK, SHUT DOWN AND DISCONNECT THE IDE DRIVE, UNLESS IT CONTAINS YOUR OS. TRY BOOTING TO BIOS AND CHANGE ORDER OF 1ST BOOT OPTIONS, HIT F10 AND EXIT AND ALLOW COMPUTER TO BOOT TO OS, THEN LOGON, GO TO DEVICE MANAGER AND REMOVE IDE AND RESTART, ONLY IF THIS HDD DOES NOT CONTAIN OS. YOU SHOULD BE FINE AFTER THIS, OR INSTALL YOUR OS ON THE SATA HDD.

ASUS K8N MB On board audio doesn't work. I've verified that correct settings in BIOS but signal is not making it to the plug for Line Out. I just installed SP2 so I'm going after new drivers next. Any...


Check FP_AUDIO pin settings. FP_AUDIO is located just below the CD AUX. See page 1-6, Motherboard layout.
There should be a jumper over pins 9 and 10 and pins 5 and 6. This is the default setting chassis rear MB audio output.
See page 1-22.

Unfortunately the audio chip is soldered to the motherboard. Most newer Asus MBs the audio chip is not soldered and can be replaced by calling Asus.
Asus manual; http://dlsvr04.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock754/K8N/e1868_k8n.pdf
Link to Asus site, K8N; http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=zigzffr75jWJ7j2y&templete=2
A possible work around would be to disiable the AC'97 in the bios and add a PCI audio card.

Asus k8n-e when xp strat loading the sytem reboots automaticaly


There are two Asus K8N-E MB models;
http://www.asus.com/Search.aspx?SearchKey=K8N-E
Chances are there was a problem during the installation of windows XP. Or there is an issue with your hard disk drive. During boot up, press the F5 key every 2 seconds. Windows Advanced Option Menu will load. From the list highlight, Safe Mode with Command Prompt & press enter. Type the command, C: space fixmbr & "press enter". Wait a few seconds for fixmbr to run.
Than press ctrl+alt+delete to reboot your system. If windows still restarts you will need to reinstall windows XP. A Fresh install is preferred. Running windows repair can make matters worse. Every hard disk drive manufacture has software to setup their drives. Example: If your hard disk drive is made by Seagate, go to Seagate’s web site & download their setup software. Download SeaTools for DOS now!
http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools/
Instructions are included on the site.
Here is the link for Samsung; http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/
For Western Digital;
http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?lang=en
Use the manufacture’s software to setup your hard disk drive before installing Windows XP.

Cheers!

Hard drive not working


hi im josh in cebu phils.Friend if that happens whrein your 2nd hdd dont detect. Try to use these solutions. Check first the jumper of the hardisk whether it is stated as slave or master. if 2nd disk is master the jumper should be in the master and if it is slave the jumper must be slave. or try to use another IDE cable. put them as both master the first hdd in first ide slot and your 8 GB 2nd hardisk in 2nd slot as master also. or try to enter bios setup utility then try to check or detect the both device.thats all good luck

Similar problem after ASUS relacement


Your first solution would probably be to find your CMOS jumper and reset the BIOS. Remove excess peripherals, like modem cards and the like. Make sure only the bare essentials are connected. As a last resort, pull all of the RAM and see if it beeps at you - if you don't get a long POST code, then the board is probably toast. I'd take a look at that power supply if that's the case.
