Bios reconizes new hd drive but xp pro does not


SATA HARD DRIVE - XP INSTALLATION
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 got a new SATA 500gb HDD but the motherboard wont detect it.


Access to your Bios Setup & configure the Bios settings.

Features Setup Page : This page sets up some parameters for peripheral devices connected to the system.

CMOS SETUP UTILITY - Copyright (C) 1985-2003, American Megatrends, Inc.
Features Setup
OnBoard Floppy Controller : Enabled
Serial Port1 Address 3F8/IRQ4 : Enabled
OnBoard IR Port : Disabled
Parallel Port Address : 378
Parrllel Port Mode : ECP
ECP Mode DMA Chnnel : DMA3
Parallel Port IRQ : IRQ7
OnBoard PCI IDE Controller : Both
OnBoard SATA-IDE
: Enabled *(Make sure This is enabled)
Audio Device : Enabled
Modem Device : Auto
Ethernet Device : Enabled

If you have got a SATA III HDD, ie if it is a Western Digital Sata III you need to configure the jumpers to work with your older Sata interface port.(Only Sata 1 & 2 ports on your Mainboard Socket 478). As for Seagate Sata III HDD, the configuration is automatic.

If your 500GD HDD is not detected, try updating the BIOS!
A word of caution "Updating the Bios is not for the Novice" Do it at your own risk. Failure in updating the Bios may render your Mainboard useless.

Hope it helps.

I Have ASUS P5RD1-VM series motherboard of which the LAN driver is being missing all the time. Pls. anybody help me. Regards Sachin


Open Advanced while in the bios. Than open Southbridge configuration.
Please check bios for Onboard LAN Page 2-24 in you're manual. Set this to [Enabled]
If you do not have this enabled the LAN controller will not function.
Once enabled in bios save and exit the bios menu.
Open windows update when you're system reloads.
Click the custom button when windows update open’s.
Windows update service will scan you're system and will see you're LAN is enabled.
Windows will list drivers for you're on-board built-in LAN controller.
Or you can use the Asus CD to install the LAN controller software.
If you're LAN controller does not function you may need to add a PCI eithernet card.

Good luck!

Hello, I have a Sharp Actius MC 24. I'm looking to upgrade the memory. I found 1 memory board in the compartment with the fan on the bottom of the machine. This board was labeled 256 MB. Do I remove this...


The other memory module is soldered on to the motherboard.
Go to Crucial.com and run the memory upgrade scanner. This tool will tell you what memory the system can use and exactly how you can upgrade.

Msi 848p neo v motherboard problems.


Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20.
If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows:
Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port.
Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port.

ATA Configuration
Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA]
S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller.
P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller.
On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]".
Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three.
First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.)
Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master.
Third boot device [ATA IDE drive]
If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive.
(Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it).
Save your changes & exit the bios.
Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number.
Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.

IDE Problem (I Think)


Depends what kind of motherboard is. You may want to check with a different IDE ribbon cable. Make sure that the IDE controller is ENABLED within BIOS. Set the HDD as Master - see those jumpers next to the power and data connectors. Try with another (IDE) HDD and see if the controller is working. Don't asume the 1st HDD is working OK, you never know ...it may be broken now ...

Do you know how to flash the BIOS? This could trigger it. Are you sure that it can accept the hard drive. Does the hard drive have jumpers on it? This should be on master if it does have one. Although not common on laptop hard drives it could have one.

My new HDD isnt showing up in my computor


What type of HDD is your new one? SATA, IDE?

Do you have any USB disk devices plugged in to your system? USB hard drive or flash stick or other SD cards? Remove them and try rebooting again. These can sometimes take precedence over your HDD and your system will not boot.
