Question about Intel DQ965GF Motherboard

1 Answer

Picky Intel motherboard?

Greetings, peoples.

I got a weird problem with a motherboard: It will not recognize my CD-ROM drive connected to its one IDE channel, and my SATA drive comes up as 'having a problem'. The motherboard is an Intel DQ965GF, running a 2.4GB, Core2 Duo processor. The CD-ROM in question is a Toshiba XM-5702B.

    I am very sure of the IDE connection. However, problem is now different: it will recognize my hard drive, but will not let it boot, and my CD-ROM still acts as if unrecognized.

    Will try updating the BIOS, see if that has any effect.

How do you connect IDE device to GA-Z87X-UD4H


This particular motherboard does not provide IDE connections for external devices. The safest option would be to use an IDE expansion card that will plug into the PCI bus and provide normal IDE connections for your devices.
A quick search to google for "ide expansion card" will provide many good results.

I have sata dvd writer.when i connect it my computer does not boot.does intel D102ggc2 supports sata dvd writer?


You're Intel motherboard does support up to 4 SATA hard disk drives including SATA CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive, reader/writers. This MB also includes two serial ATA IDE ports.
The most likely reason you're system is not booting is because all SATA ports are all seen as Master drives. By connecting the SATA DVD-ROM drive the bios auto configured the SATA ports.
You'll need to enter the bios when you're system boots-up. Press the F2 key on you're keyboard right after hearing a single beep. You will than enter the bios main menu. Listed at the main menu are devices connect to the motherboard. (Instruction on how to move around in the bios is listed at the bottom of the screen). Mainly, the hard disk drive or (drives) and the SATA DVD writer. You'll need to open the Boot tab. Look for boot order. You want the boot order set like so;
First boot device: [Floppy disk] drive; if one is connected.
Second Boot device: [Primary Hard Disk] drive.
(The drive with windows installed on it). (This drive may be ATA IDE or SATA; you did not provide that information).
Third Boot device: [DVD-Rom] drive. Save and exit the bios. The system will auto restart.
You're windows operating system should load correctly after the auto re-start.
The SATA data cable and the SATA power cable should be checked for good connection. It only takes a little bump to make either loose.
Here is the link to Intel for you're motherboard;

No matter what i do cd rom not detecting


check whether the powe plug has been inserted properly and the power plug is working fine. Even though if the power plug inserted is working fine and CD ROM not detecting means CD ROM was damaged.

New gigabyte EP45-UD3P mb intel q9400 dvd drive won't burn dvd


Hi,

many people when doing bios-hardware updates. leave optical drives connected. this can have adverse effects on connected items. the only 2 suggestions i have for you are:-

**** uninstall and re-install the Drive first In device Manager****

1:) if the motherboard has 2 ide slots Primary/secondary. put the dvd writer on the secondary, or vice versa. and setup as a Master Drive. ( jumper block at rear )

2:) Go to lite-ons website. and see if there is a firmware available for that model of DVD Rom drive. and carefully re-flash the drive itsel.

Hope this guides you in the right Direction.

Ecs 6100sm-m mobo connections


you have a few options

1) buy a sata harddrive (faster then ide), use the ide for the second harddrive (backup) and cd/dvd rom

2) buy a sata cd/dvd rom use the ide on both harddrives (1 set to slave)

3) depends on your budget, buy a sata drive + sata cd/dvd rom so your main drive is on sata (faster than ide) then you only have your second drive as your backup drive on ide.

i had the same problem when i rebuilt mine, i went for the seperate harddrive and cd/dvd rom and my 320 gb ide as my backup drive

sorry to jump on this post aswell, see what others think

Hello. Some motherboards set SATA1 as IDE primary master, for compatibility. Try connect the DVD RW to SATA2 or SATA3 Port.

No Boot (system does post) - Hard drives not detected • Check jumper settings on all IDE devices • Verify that IDE controller is configured correctly in the BIOS • Check to make sure that the drive is connected to the correct controller • Make sure drives are configured correctly for RAID • Verify Onchip IDE configuration for ICH5 SATA operation is set correctly • Test drives with different IDE/SATA cables
