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.

Check your AHCI (or ACHI, can't remember) settings in your BIOS. Turn them off, use "standard pata mode" even though you're using a SATA drive, and try again.

ASUS K8S-MX Motherboard, but when I connect IDE


How were the partitions created on the SATA? Are they RAID configured from the other system? Does the new motherboard have the same support for your HD as the other system? Check the setup in the BIOS screen on both systems to make them identical as much as you can. According to Tom's Hardware: "In the SATA port configuration place you have up to four "mode" choices: IDE (or PATA) Emulation, native SATA, AHCI, or RAID." Check this section.

Reading error


What type of HDD is this? IDE; SATA; or SATA II? The problem probably is that you are trying to use a SATA drive with a SATA II board. They are not backwards compatible. Hope this helps.

Presario SR1030NX - with a ASUS A7V8X-LA motherboard, won't boot.


those are notoriously bad boards. i have worked on 2 or 3 of those boards and founds its adefect on some voltage regulator on motherboard..
best thing u can do is upgrade motherboard and cpu and ram in a combo.. don't forget power supply unit, new stuff needs at least 350watts

ASUS A*S-X not recognizing cpu


you should be able to press F2 or Del on boot up to get into the bios, but you should replace the battery first then set everything up as the cmos has obviously lost it's saved settings because the battery is flat.
