SOURCE: sata unable to recognize my book 500gb

Well I went to ASUS website and I could find A7V8X-LA specifically. I was attempting to pull up A7V8X and ASUS informed me that the site was down for maintenance.

There are four A7V8X boards listed. None of them have an LA at the end of it. It's possible ASUS built the board for HP and you will have to get in touch with HP to get support for it.

SOURCE: PC won't boot if SATA drive connected, drive works fine if plugged afterward

Try Hirens Boot CD. It has a lot of programs on it to detect format etc.
I think your hard drive has a missing or corrupt MBR and it needs to be replaced.
When I have had a hard dive not recognized I hve used Super Fdisk to format and reset hard drive.
On the boot disk

SOURCE: Cannot find usb port

Make sure you have the proper drivers installed for that usb devise. the easiest way to find out whats up, is to to to Add hardware on your control panel. If something is up a yellow question mark will be next to it. highlight it., click next and the pc will search for the appropriate drivers, if for some reason the drivers aren't found you will need to find the right drivers and Viola! good to go!

Good Luck =)

A8VE-SE won't recognize SATA HDD


If you are trying to install Windows XP then -
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

I have an HP Pavilion a656x computer with two SATA connections on the motherboard. BIOS doesn't give option to enable them. How do I??


BIOS doesn't give any option to enable those Sata headers, it's automatic. You just pick a Sata header, and plug into it.
Any one you want. BIOS will automatically recognize, that there's a device plugged in, and to THAT Sata header. That's what's nice about Sata.

To enable sata port press Delete Key when computer Starts. U will get BIOS menu. On there the Main settings window the second last option is to enable sata option. If u want to install widows OS (XP,2000, Server edition) **** Driver CD and go to RAID folder there u get a driver ( shown as Floppy drive Image). Incerte Floppy in drive and click that icon. And click Extract. Then incert the OS CD. On starting of instalition u will get a option press F6 to install Raid Disk. Press F6. On Bitween instalition u will get a option to install this Raid. ( With out this RAID u cant install XP or Other vartions of windows in ur sata hard drive)

Sata unable to recognize my book 500gb


The A7V8X-LA motherboard only supports SATA1. Your new hard drive is likely SATA2 (SATA-II). You'll likely need to change jumpers on the drive to make it compatible with SATA1.

It's a tiny bit slower than SATA2 (okay, twice as slow). But, it's still faster than PATA (IDE).

Sata/raid not working on ASUS M2N MB


You may need to set up the RAID array before it will be detected. Look in the BIOS and see if there is a way to set up the RAID array there. If there isn't, watch as the PC boots up and see if there is an option to go into the RAID settings before windows starts. You may need to actually create an array before it will be seen.
