Question about Motherboards
Just as the subject says.
I have tried a standard sata cable and an optical drive specific sata cable.
If you're bios does not show the SATA drive, than it is possible the SATA controller is defective. I have come across this before.
Unplug the power cable from the PC.
Make sure the SATA data cable (Inside the connector) is clean. Take some alcohol, drip it on to a cotton swab. Clean the connector at both ends. Than clean the SATA connector on the board. Do the same for the SATA power connector. Please be sure everything is plugged in. (It takes very little for the SATA connectors to look connected but are not). Plug in you're power cable & boot to the bios by pressing the delete key. If the SATA drive is not seen by the bios, well you know all ready.
You can call Asus M-F 8:00AM to 5:00PM EST. Tech support number: 1-812-282-2787. Asus warrants their boards for three years. They will ask for the number's typed on a sticker located on the pink LPT port.
You can see this SN from inside you're case only. That SN will let the tech know if you're board is still in warranty. If it is, make sure you get a case number before you hang up with the tech.
You will need a case number before you can get a RMA number.
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.
