    Trying to install a Samsung Spindpoint F1 HD750LJ 750GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0GB/s. My P4VMA-M motherboard does not recognise the drive. My motherboard is 1.5MB/s. I have placed the jumper on the HD to (as instructed by Samsung tech) force the drive to switch from 3.0GB/s to 1.5GB/s. I have tried two of these drives, in two computers, with no success. Both computers have the P4VMA-M board. I am running a SATA DVD burner in both computers. I have tried three different sets of SATA cables in both motherboard ports that the DVD s are running on. Both drives are spinning. The Samsung Techs don't seem to know any thing about this drive. All they wan't to do is tell me that New Egg sends out a lot of bad drives. I don't beleive this is true. Samsung Tech, John DeVoe, reccomended that I start buying from a reputeable dealer instead of New Egg,

No Monitor display with P4VMA-M Motherboard cpu...

good day,

have you tried unplugging and replugging the cable connecting from the monitor to the video card? if after trying that it your video card is still not functioning, try installing a separate video card in its appropriate slot and try if this will work. better yet, have it checked by a competent technician in your area to verify other possible causes of this problem.

i hope this will help

Windows Setup cant find hard disk ?????????????

Does the BIOS on your system see the drive and show it's model information? Is this the only drive on the system? If the answer is yes for both, then you can download free utilities from the web to wipe the drive clean. This will result in the loss of all existing data on your drive. You can search for "Wipe Disk" and will get several hits for free software. Once you have cleaned the drive, try instlling XP. If the BIOS does not see your drive, the XP can't see it. You may want to try other SATA ports on your motherboard, or try changing the IDE configuration in the BIOS. Let me know if this works.
