I have several biostar k8m800-m7

Your motherboard did not post . When this happens nothing works. Your card is probably good. But before we jump the gun, just make sure that it is not a power supply issue that is preventing startup. Try another known working supply to see if the mo bo works. If not, then it is a cmos issue

    It start but does not recognise the key board, so

    Please check the cable of your keyboard. or change the port if its USB.

    if same problem borrow one USB keyboard from your friends just to check whether your USB port is working or not.

    if other keyboard is working, your keyboard has gone bad.

    replace your keyboard.

    I want to attach wd500Gb

    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 make sure that the cd rom is getting enough power test all leads that are attached to the cd drive including electical extensions and make sure they have a secure connection or just replace them there might be bad/faulty or your drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd rom then plug them back in or you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click you will have options to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer Close all open programs

    Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







    This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

    Upper Filters

    Lower Filters

    Upper Filters.bak

    Lower Filters.bak

    If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete After deleting the keys, close the registry editor Reboot your computer Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone. hope this helps

    PCI Simple Communacation Controller

    Hi, Thanks for using fixya.

    Not to much information here but I'll try and guess.

    Shows up in device manager: Right click on the line with the Yellow ! or ? choose uninstall then reboot the computer and new drivers will be searched for the network card or the modem. If you know the name of the network card and modem do a search for the drivers. If you can't get online search from a friend's computer save the drivers to a flash drive.

    Hope this helps.
