Hi thun, Unplug the power cable from the PC.
Please reset the bios. This is shown in you're user manual on page 1-17. (If you no longer have you're user manual for the Asus K8V-MX MB you can download it from Asus by clicking on this link):
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=K8V-MX&SLanguage=en-us

Remove the SATA data cable & clean both ends of the cable with a few drops of alcohol on to a cotton swab. Than clean both SATA ports on the motherboard using the same method.
Also clean the SATA power connectors in the same fashion. (Allow time for the alcohol to dry).
You can help it dry using some canned air.
Re-connect the SATA data cable & SATA power cable to the SATA drive. (Check all other connections within the PC for good connections before closing case). (SATA data & power connectors are easily knocked loose, so be careful).
Plug the power cord back into the PC & boot the PC. Enter you're bios. Check the main menu & make sure the bios has listed the SATA drive. Than go to Boot menu. Page 2-27, 2-28 in the manual. Make sure you see the SATA drive listed here. If you are sure the SATA drive was listed in the main menu than it must also be listed in the Boot menu.
If it is not listed in the Boot menu than there is a problem with you're bios. You're board is warranted for three years from manufactures date. Please call Asus tech at 1-812-282-2787.
M-F 9:00AM to 5:00PM EST. You will need the serial number printed on a white label located on the pink LPT port. You can see this only from within the PC. Asus will ask for that S/N to determine if you're board is still within warranty. If it is, make sure you get a case number & instruction before ending the call.

Good Luck!
Mike

BIOS cannot detect SATA harddisk


Most motherboards have multiple plug-ins for Sata drives. Try another plug in. This will typically solve this type of issue.

Sata Harddisk Not detected in Post operation


Hi vijjis,
Make sure your SATA drive is connected to SATA port 1 which is the bottom port. Double check both the data cable & power cable. The data cable only connects one way at the board & at the drive. Same for the power cable. Your SATA drive must be listed in the bios menu & you must list the SATA drive with-in the boot order. If your cabling is all correct & you still do not see the SATA drive in the bios menu than the onboard SATA controller is defective. This can not be repaired because it is integrated into the board. It will not hurt to clear the cmos. See page 15 in your manual. Your board can only run SATA 1.0 = 150MBs. If your Seagate is pinned for SATA II = 300MBs, change the jumper on the drive. (This may or may not work). See if the bios list the drive.
One other option, you can buy a PCI SATA controller.
Here are a few; http://www.google.com/products?q=Promise+pci+sata+I+controller&btnG=Search+Products&hl=en&show=dd
