Question about Intel D845HV (735858149143) Motherboard

Won't detect the hard drive

Hi,
I'm trying to fix a friends PC. The original D845HV motherboard is defunct after testing everything, so I purchased another identical board and fitted it today. The board fires up fine but won't boot the hard drive. I can get to BIOS and noticed that the board is failing to detect the HD. I've tried swapping the IDE cables, using a different power pack, checking all cables are fitted properly, swapping the processor for another P4 and checking the HD in another PC.

Any ideas?

Cheers

Marty

    Excellent!!
    I've just gone through bench testing and managed to work out that I had cabled the IDE incorrectly. I was using the same cable plugged to both HD and CD ROM instead of attaching a separate IDE cable from the secondary slot on the motherboard to the CD ROM. All works now. It's just a case of putting it back together in the box.

    Thanks a load!

    Marty

I have a dell dimension 3000 series desktop and when I turn it on it does not get passed POST and tells me the following: primary drive 0 not found primary drive 1 not found gives me the option of F1...


This normally means that the Hard Drive is not recognized, and most likely can be attributed through a crashed hard drive. If it's not POSTing, then I think you need to look for loose cords/cables as well. That can cause the hard drive to not be recognized.

I had purchased new 500GB Sata Hitachi Hard disk. I had checked with my friend system, it has detected. But in my PC it does not detected. my mother Board: P4vm800m7 v1.0 Mercury Please Help me Veera


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

It may be the DC to DC circuit, which is in the motherboard or could be just the DC power jack.
If you gently move the power plug of the laptop left, right, up and down and you see the LED lights changing that, is a sign of a lose DC power jack to fix it, you will either re-solder or replaced it.

Good luck

Windows setup does not see sata drive K8VGA-m


Good day sir, if your hard drive is bad it cannot be detected, but lets review first several reasons why it cannot be detected by your motherboard;
  • check the master / slave setup, if youre hard drive is sata, this is not applicable.
  • check your connection, both data and power cable, to and from the hard drive. (ribbon ide cable or red sata data cable)
  • Still cannot be detected? try to reset your CMOS setup by using the cmos battery jumper. after reset, review the CMOS settings, and enable your IDE/SATA drives. test again.
  • Stiil doesn't work? bring it to a friend who has a PC and try to test your hard drive to any available good PC, to check if your drive is bad.
If your hard drive is good, chances are your motherboard IDE/SATA part is bad, you may need to buy a PCI to SATA/IDE card. connect this card to any available PCI slot, connect your hard drive. hope this helps.

New motherboard for the T2862


Hi,
you probably won,t get it to boot off the original hard-drive. As that will be mated up to the old motherboard.
i,d suggest putting a new hard-drive in, then transfering any required data to the new drive, you should be able to transfer most of your files accross, but will have conflicts trying to copy some windows files. as they,ll be in use by the system.
