Question about ASUS A7V8X Motherboard
I have a compaq presario with Asus A7V8X-LA mobo, but does not detect the sata conection.... Bios doesn't even show any way to detect the new unit....any advice ... I think my Asus still under warranty... but I don't know what else to do....thanks
The A7V8X-LA motherboard only supports SATA1. Your new hard drive is likely SATA2 (SATA-II). You'll likely need to change jumpers on the drive to make it compatible with SATA1.
It's a tiny bit slower than SATA2 (okay, twice as slow). But, it's still faster than PATA (IDE).

Well I went to ASUS website and I could find A7V8X-LA specifically. I was attempting to pull up A7V8X and ASUS informed me that the site was down for maintenance.
There are four A7V8X boards listed. None of them have an LA at the end of it. It's possible ASUS built the board for HP and you will have to get in touch with HP to get support for it.
