Some simple help needed with ASRock P67 Extreme4

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

First time posting here, but occasional lurker.

I have a couple things I need help with, and I figure that you guys are the pro's to help me find the solutions.

I recently put together a new rig using:
ASRock P67 Extreme 4
i5 2.8GHz
8GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM
GTX 560Ti
Raidmax Quantum ATX-798WB
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Now there's a few simple things I cant get to work right for me, (checked online for solution, read every letter in the guidebook, etc) which I'm sure are elementary and silly to ask.

1. Cant seem to find the correct place to connect the "POWER SW" Pins, I plugged it into the "POWER LED" as said in the manual, but the button doesn't work.
2. The Disc Drive appears as a Floppy Drive. (I checked the BIOS and cant find any options to have it appear correctly. Thus its unusable right now).
3. I connected the top case USB ports at the bottom, but they don't seem to work either. Nor the top-back fan.
4. My Razer Megalodon keeps appearing as a "unknown device" and will not let me install the correct drivers, it keeps telling me that they are fine.

Maybe I'm just too much of a "n00b" or simply unskilled at dealing with motherboards frown.gif

Please your help guys!

POWER LED is just that the power LED, there should be a POWER SW set of pins
How is the disc drive connected? Could be a bad drive if it is connected VIA a SATA port
As for the back fan make sure all three pins are seated correctly on the three pin connector
As for the mouse make sure you have all the USB drivers, chipset, and other motherboard drivers installed

I checked and couldn't find any Power SW PINs, ill take a picture and share when i get home from the office.

The Disc Drive is connected with the long flat 18 pin connector at the bottom of the MB. Maybe its outdated and I should get a new one that connects through SATA ports?

I'm 90% sure that an 18 pin connection is a floppy drive connection, not even ide. You should definitely either pick up a sata compatible drive for 20 bucks or see if your drive has sata connections that you can use.

Edit: I'm also assuming you have installed your motherboard drivers? That may solve your mouse and usb issues.

As far as the top back fan issue, just make sure it's plugged into a power connector from the power supply, it should then run.
