Question about Hitachi ( 0A30229-20pk) 400 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Hitachi 400GB internl drive not seen.

I have a 3 year (and a couple of months!) old Mesh system with a motherboard that is, I believe, an Asus A8V deluxe (according to the specs that came with the unit when new). I've replaced the original Maxtor 300GB drive with a new Hitachi 400GB unit and the machine insists that there is nothing there. I've changed the HDD in case the original unit was faulty but to no avail. Can anyone suggest what I'm doing wrong please?

Hi,

Initially, pls :

  • check/replace IDE cable used;
  • check power connector;
  • verify master/slave jumper setting;
  • reset CMOS/BIOS to default;
  • change motherboard IDE connection from IDE1 to IDE2 or vice versa;
  • try as a standalone, temporarily remove any other IDE device such as the DVD/CD.
If all else fails and thee HDD works/checks OK in other machines, you may need to update the BIOS of the Asus A8V deluxe. Pls start here. Click on "DOWNLOAD", on the :Input Model to Search" type A8V, in Select Category, choose BIOS, click on Search Info button, follow on screen instructions

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have problem in asus A8V-vm motherboard in that hard disk is not detected in BIOS but Win-XP is working properly and when I tries to install new windows XP it shows an error that hard disk cannot be...


Asus A8V-VM Motherboard coming with SATA RAID option, thats why you could not see the detected HDD in system BIOS. But you can see the the detected HDD in RAID BIOS. You can enter to RAID BIOS that will pop up after system BIOS. If you are using old version of WinXP it will not detect the RAID controller of you motherboard. Thats why you cannot able to install WinXP. While you booting from WinXP CD press F6 key when the WinXP installer prompted for third party driver. Copy the RAID driver provider in driver CD to a Floppy Disk (INF file) and insert it, hit enter to continue the installation. If you are using WinXP Service pack 2 or higher you do not need this step it will automatically detect the HDD.

I lost my system sound drive after changing xp of my system... so that i ma not able to hear sound in my system.


You can find the drivers at the manufacturer's website, i.e. ASUSTeK. Go this this link:

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

I can't give you the direct link because it uses Javascript.

You should be able to find it by selecting Motherboards, your series (Socket 939 if your model is A8V-MX), then your model. The rest should be easy.

Possible sound card problem?!


To the best of my knowledge this could be a sound card driver problem. Try updating your sound driver. If that doesn't work uninstall the driver and get the updated version on the net.

If your not sure how to do this come back and let me know.

Extreme slow performance, cpu performance maxed out


Boot to safe mode and see if the problem is the same.
Have you checked for viruses and spyware?
Look in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Event Viewer, System and Application for red marks.
Do you have a temp monitor installed?
Have you changed anything in the BIOS? Set to safe defaults.
