Asus P5GD2 mobo BIOS: HELP!

Posted on 2004-10-20
Last Modified: 2010-04-26

I have just built a new PC with an Asus P5GD2-deluxe mobo and am having a problem with the BIOS.

When starting up the system, the IDE scan detects my three installed devices correctly.

However, in the BIOS-setup no IDE devices are detected at all!

What's going wrong and how do I resolve the problem?

Advice much appreciated.

Regards,  TC.

PS. I'll give more points when I get them.

Is it set to AUTO?

Can you access them with a boot floppy or have you loaded an OS on it OK?

Check the Ribbon cables. The red line side should be located next to the power plug of the IDE device (pin 1).

Thanks for the good advice guys.

I have resolved the problem myself  however: I disabled the onboard IDE/RAID controller and this allowed the devices to be seen.

Regards, TC.
