Question about EliteGroup NFORCE 570 SLIT-A Motherboard

1 Answer

SATA drive stops or hangs . . .

My system:

NFORCE 570 ****-A V5.1 MB
Intel Pentium D 830 3.0gGHz DT 800FSB Socket 775
MemoryPRO 2GB Dual Channel Kit (1GBx2) DDR2 PC2-5300 DDR2-667 CL5 240-Pin DIMM Memory
Hitachi 320GB 0A33435 - SATA2 U300 7200rpm 16MB
BFG NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT 512MB PCIe

The problem: When i built this pc, i originally installed Win XP HE on this sytem. I eventually set it up to dual-boot with Vista Ultimate. It worked great until the system was just shut off one day, when i started it back up, it would no longer recognize a SATA drive.
i thought maybe the drive was bad, then i bought a Maxtor 320GB SATA and i was going to install Vista on this machine, however the set up nor my BIOs detected this drive either.
So, i contacted ECS and there support is reeally slow, so i decided to check thier site for a BIOs update which did exsist, i did the update so now i am running v5.2e , however the BIOS sees the drive only every other boot up, and if it does see it, it will not boot to it. i can boot to the IDE drives all day without a glitch. The SATA drives are enabled in BIOS, BIOS functions properly, everything else with the pc works fine. I just can not get this SATA thing figured out. HELP!

Hi fadetoal, it's not you or you're drives. It's the onboard SATA controller. When a board is SATA compatible & the bios does not see the SATA drive (List the SATA drive), the fault is the board. You're board goes one farther than normal. Bios see's the drive but can't run. All you're going to do is pull you're hair out trying to get the board stable. Hope its still in warranty.

RMA time:

Best of luck!

    Dear Sir, my mother board d101 has been damaged can i use of p4sd m/b insted of that while i want all rest parts remain using i dont want change ram,SMPS, Proccesser etc.

    fbhushan, the Intel D101GGC motherboard (Grand Country) supports;

    1) Intel Pentium 4, Intel Celeron D, and Intel Pentium D processors that fit in an
    > LGA 775 processor socket.

    The Processor has the socket holes, and the processor socket (LGA 775) has the pins.
    775 socket holes, and 775 pins.

    The Front Side Bus (FSB) can be either 533MegaHertz, or 800MHz.

    2) Supports DDR Sdram ram memory at either 333MegaHertz or 400MHz.
    (PC2700 and PC3200, respectively)

    Will support Up To 2GB of ram memory.
    Has two ram memory slots. The maximum amount for EACH slot is 1GB

    3) The SMPS used for it has,
    A) One 24-pin ATX main power cable

    B) One 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

    The Intel D101GGC motherboard has Four SATA headers (Connectors) on it, so I'm going to assume you are using a SATA harddrive.
    This would mean the SMPS you are using should have at least one SATA power cable.

    It should also have an assortment of 4-pin standard Peripheral power cables.
    (Misnomered as 'Molex')

    The Asus P4SD (Motherboard chipset Intel 865PE) supports;

    1) Intel Pentium 4 and Intel Celeron processors that fit in a > Socket 478 processor socket

    The Processor has the pins, and the processor socket has the socket holes.
    478 pins, and 478 socket holes.

    Your Processor will NOT work.

    The Ram Memory WILL work.

    The SMPS MAY work.

    I state MAY because the Asus P4SD motherboard uses a 20-pin ATX main power cable.

    If the last four pins of the 24-pin ATX main power cable that you have on your SMPS right now, Do Not remove, you can Carefully cut them off. Wrap them up, and out of the way.
    If you need guidance on this I can help instruct you.

    You need an IDE (PATA) harddrive, or a SATA adapter card to use a SATA harddrive.

    So there you have it sir.

    An attractive value of dual core processors is that they do not require a new motherboard, but can be used in existing boards that feature the correct socket. Check sockets if same then enjoy.
