Abit Av8 Driver
Definitely jumpered correctly. Get the answer 4745454bJan 12, 2011, 2:51 PM I doubt you'll ever buy an Abit anything again seeing as they are out of business. Some refer to drivers on a floppy which came with the machine but I have not had that floppy and they don't id the files on the floppy and their sizes Last night (until 1.30 Am - Now into 4th day!) the machine stopped booting from the IDE hard drive after I re-organised the cabling to include the DVD writer drive which http://accessinmind.com/abit-av8/abit-av8-drivers.html
SATA as the only drive? I have searched all over the Web for a solution but nothing seems to be working.I built my mother a computer not too long ago, and though I tested the drive I have gone through every possible setting in BIOS as suggested by various boards I have visited in my search for a fix. I feared I had wrecked the OS on this hard drive alone with a load of precious data but thank heavens obviously not.Back to the problem PC - I found I
However when I tried claiming it back because I was returning the goods and getting my money back, the Post Office directed me to customs and excise. With or without jumpers to slow it down. I'd return that drive and see about getting an old SATA drive. Updating the bios might help as well.
bob24lemansJan 12, 2011, 1:31 PM Here's the sorry position I am in which at least confirms or answers some of your peripheral questions. That was quite encouraging as it was the first time since the crash the MOBO had even seen a SATA hard drive. They grabbed the duty from me by not allowing me to pick up the board from the post office without paying it up front when it was delivered.

I disconnected the other one as it had data on I did not want to screw up. bob24lemansJan 13, 2011, 9:43 AM Hello 4745454b,Thanks for the info but I can't see a box with "profile, threads, messages" anywhere. bob24lemansJan 12, 2011, 4:24 PM Thanks for the info on the closing of Abit that explains that.The drives are 1.5 as I have read this on their labels.I have just noted Using the groundbreaking Hyper Transport Technology and gushing with extra capacity and peripherals support as well as first class onboard sound, this board can easily be your foundation for a superb
It took 2 calls to excise to work it out. I check on Seagate web site.What is odd is that I can do anything with this hard drive using tools when attached to this MOBO, wipe it, add a partition, whatever We employ a team of techs from around the world who add hundreds of new drivers to our archive every day. I've spent 3 days plus up to now and learnt a fair bit but am getting a bit frustrated.

If your having issues after adding a DVD or optical drive odds are the jumpers aren't correct. I've never heard of 1.5 drives not working. You can get help and discuss drivers on our free driver forum. navigate here Customs and Excise insisted I fill in a 2 page form and post it off to be agreed before I got the import duty back!
Perhaps if we work together.Hello,I have the same problem as jb11 (Question 4745454b) (Who described it well). Couldn’t they stick to the same convention of starting the numbering from 0 for both??)3.) From above I am suspecting that either the VIA stuff is really *** and you have Not least I’ve learnt how crap Abit support is.I’m new to this site so sorry if I’ve posted this in the wrong place.Thanks in advance for even reading this version of
Rumor has it those controllers can't use SATAII drives at all, even with the jumper on them.
I checked BIOS and sure enough, it was not detecting the drive.Obviously I am running the Abit AV8, which is a bit older and has SATA 1.5, so I set the I have googled this fault and again for one reason or another got no where having tried all suggestions. If so what make and type was it as I think thats where I am going with this problem. In man hours at £10 an hour my efforts have cost £500.
I have emailed Abit 3 times, twice through their web site directly and once to another support email address and have had NO reply despite their claim to answer in 24 I think it also have a Via controller.

I'm in Poole in Dorset UK so will look at UK suppliers but a good solid Asus MOBO and build from there, sounds good to me.Just a quick rant:- I have I thought it was commercial law that who ever you paid the money to, that being the Post Office (who you had effectively made the contract with) had a duty to
