    It's being shown only under slave, and I am unable to change it to master at all. It will not let me install XP while its under slave.

Insert the SATA and Power connector, enter the BIOS and ensure that SATA 2.0 controller is enabled.

Now boot into Windows and click control panel.
Double click Administrative tools and double click Computer Management.
Left on screen: Select Disk Management under the heading, storage.

Here is where the hard drive should be detected. If not present click action, followed by refresh.

Now select your new drive and format it using NTFS.

Take care!

MB MSI K8MM-V, Unable to detect 80 GB primary HDD. What need to be done ? Update Bios ? Which one ? Ravi


If the BIOS cannot detect the 80Gb hard disk then it is probably faulty.
Make sure the jumper on the hard drive is set to MA (master), if this doesn't work set it to CS (cable select) If it still isn't detected by the BIOS then the hard disk is faulty and you need a new hard disk.

I have a gigabyte n650SLI-DS4L and c2q q830, Memory 2gig kingston and a Sparkle GeForce 9600 GT Problem: System restarts after 5-7 minutes of playing NBA 2k11, and other games. pls Help!


Motherboards usually will automatically shut down to prevent damage being done to the system if there is any, such as high temperature. In your case, it restarts when you are playing games, which take more power to process than other things. It seems like that your graphics adapter, CPU or something else might be overheating. You might need to consider upgrading some parts for better cool if overheating is the case.

Hi dear Expert. I Have my MB ASUS M2A-VM HDMI. SATA1(0) was connected with HDD Samsung 320Gb. SATA2(1) was connected with CD drive. Other ports spare. Now by commecting new HD Samsung 1Tb on SATA3(2)...


If the new Drive is setup on a different channel than the First HDD and CD then it should be set to Master. In the Bios you probably need to activate the second SATA channel so the Auto Detect Function can work. You also need to check that the MB can support a drive that size. Not all MB will support an HDD of that size. Aside from the Obvious of checking all your cable connection to insure that they are all solid the only other thing I would recommend is that you switch the CD and new HDD positions. Put both HD's on the same SATA channel and the CD on the Separate channel. This would require making 1 HD a Master and the other a Slave and changing the CD to a Master since it will have it's own Channel. Second, try remove all but the New HDD from the system. Set the New HDD up as the only HDD and see if the BIOS will see and allow you to select it. If it will not there is a problem either with the size of the HD or with the HD itself.

You need to reset your computer bios back from its original settings. While turning on your computer keep pressing the del key on your keyboard until you get to the BIOS utility screen. Select the BIOS default option and then save settings and exit.

Can't get BIOS settings right


First check to see if your drive (the 160Gig) is set to master or slave. If you are going to use this drive as your primary drive (boot disk) it must be set as master, and it would be drive 0. If, on the other hand, this is a second drive, it should be set as "slave, and should be drive 1. If there is an auto-detect HDD in your Bios, try that. If not, and this machine still won't detect your HDD, you may need to download and install a Bios update, because if your Motherboard is too old, it may not recognize a 160 Gig HDD.

Sata HDD set in primary master in Bios


Try considering these:

1. DOS disk doesn't recognize SATA, that's the truth
2. You're going to have a problem if you install OS in your computer (solution: do not select SATA in HDD type but rather IDE)
3. For your SATA HDD to become primary (boot first) try to select your SATA HDD as devic first to boot..
