PATA port can run my Hard drive only but DVD ROM is not responding.Why?

I changed the cable several time but when I plugged the three ports in three channel its not working. But when I try to run either DVD ROM or HARD drive then its working. Is it a problem of the cable or mother board.

Try refreshing all connections to the motherboard. Also clean the RAM as shown in the image below.cfaa97e.jpg
Resetting the CMOS may also help you in the process. Make sure that the power cable connected to the power supply is disconnected. Change the jumper settings of JCMOS1 (labled 1) from 1-2 to 2-3 for approximately 10secs. (refer to the image below).

Then return to original settings (1-2). Hope this helps.

As far as your board being compatible I think you should be ok.
The BIOSTAR.COM website does show support for Vista 32/64,
but not windows 7. I would still attempt it.
Any driver windows 7 cant handle might be covered with a driver for Vista from biostar or found on the web as a fix.
there is a chance that it wont work though,maybe an important driver just wont work (doubtful but there is a chance).
If you Click the Blue "Manual" Tab on this page you will see a prompt to download "N73UA-M7T_N73PA-M7T_080104_B.exe"
I just downloaded it and extracted the files from the .exe file and it contained Two PDF files one 61 page motherboard manual and a 42 page bios manual.
On the driver tab you can find a driver for your IDE chipset top of the page you'll have to try the vista one.
http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/driver.php?S_ID=305
My Norton NIS 2011 said the exe was clean.
If you right click the exe after it's downloaded you might be able to choose extract files {where you choose} and then you won't have to run the exe.
I use 7zip here http://www.7-zip.org/download.html. It will handle all your zipping and unzipping and its free.
But I did run the exe for the manuals just to confirm I wasn't sending you bad links. no problems, it just created the folder in the same folder it was in.

Let me know it this helped you or not.
Post your answers as a comment or reply and I'll be notified.
Cheers

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your 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 electic extensions or just replace them they are probably 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

I no longer have the manual for the product and I want to hook it up to my TV via a cable box; we have Charter cable. The cable box is a Motorola and it says Dolby digital on the front of the cable box. ...


The white, yellow, and red RCA phono jacks on the back are called VGA inputs and outputs. The Red is
right channel audio, The white is for left channel audio. The yellow is the video. Look carefully on the back of the unit and the input jacks and output jacks should be clearly marked.

There are several other input/output ports. One is HDMI which is flat and wide. Another, not common, is composite video which uses the three above mentioned RCA jacks as indicated plus two more colored jacks. This combination gives a better picture.

A third option is a screwed on cable for input and output. This is called a "F" connector and is only used if the receiver equipment has a built in tuner. The output of a cable box is usually an "F" connector and the above described outputs

If you connect the cable box to the DVD player input and the DVD player output to the TV input, you often must have the DVD player turned on so the signal will feed to the TV.

If the TV has multiple inputs, it is best to connect the cable box to one of the TV inputs and the DVD player to another TV input. Using the TV remote you can chose which input you want to watch. The remote should have a button labeled "input"

I have sound but no picture on the screen.. What did i do wrong


Hello sir, hi, please check the video cable. If you are using the three color audio/video cable, the yellow one goes to the yellow input of the TV to the yellow output of the DVD recorder. Then check the TVs audio video settings, the TV should be in the video channel, if there are several video channel, check where the video is coming in. Make sure that the yellow cable is good. you can swap several cables to check.
If your TV is component input, put the red green and blue wires to their respective color port, one end is on the DVD recorder, and the other on the TV. make sure your cables are good. Do the same thing with the S-video and HDMI cable. if your TV has this.

Issue Installing 4th Drive Device (2 DVD Drives and 2 Harddrives)


You cannot plug an IDE ribbon in the floppy slot (port). The total IDE drives you can install is four (4). But check your jumper configuration. The DVD & DVD/CD-ROM cannot have the same jumper configuration to share the same IDE slot. One has to be MASTER (MS) and the other SLAVE (SL). Or you may put both drives on CABLE SELECT (CS).

My computer will not read any of my disk or install


when you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.

when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.

suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways

Drive light gets stuck on at reboot


Hi,
Try swapping the Jumper block ( Small plastic pin connector ) on The Back Of the DVD Drive. If using both Hard-Drive And DVD Drive on the Same IDE Cable. The DVD Should be set as Master And Hard-Drive As Slave, Or Vice versa.
Failing This, put The Hard Drive On Primary IDE Channel, And DVD On Secondary Channel.
These suggestions, have been made as it appears from your problem listed, that the 2 drives Are Conflicting with each Other.
Finally, is to try a different 4 pin ( Molex ) power cable to either device/Drive. if you have a single rail Power supply unit. the 2 units sharing a joint power cable, may be draining the PSU.

Hope this helps.

Trying to hookup dvd


Steps to hook up DVD player:

1. Plug in DVD player
2. Plug in VIDEO cable to back of DVD player
There are multiple video out cable options: HDMI, VGA, RCA
If you aren't sure, use RCA (red, white, yellow tri-plug cable) and plug yellow into VIDEO OUT port.
3. Plug other end of video cable into TV's VIDEO IN port.
4. Turn on TV to the INPUT channel that corresponds with the input port you plugged the video cable into. Usually, this is either VIDEO1, VIDEO2, INPUT1, INPUT2, or channel 3.
