I'm running bios version *Award (04/01/08) 1903*
and i've just found this report
TROUBLESHOOTING
System Lockup Information
If you have added a new drive and your system locks up at boot time (right after turning the power on) or locks up during System Setup, there are several possible causes.
If using EIDE, verify that the 40-pin ribbon cable is properly attached, making sure that pin 1 on the cable matches pin 1 on the drive.
Next, if your new drive is larger than 32 GB, you may have an Award 4.51 BIOS with a 32 GB limitation that causes the system to hang during the Power On Self Test (POST).
The best solution is to obtain a BIOS upgrade from your computer manufacturer to support drives greater than 32 GB.
Another solution for this 32 GB limitation is to use the Cylinder Reduction Jumper (CRJ) that will lock the drive's LBA size to approximately 32 GB, allowing it to be used on systems that do not support it (such as those having the Award BIOS 4.51 problem). Follow the procedure below titled "For drives WITH a Cylinder Reduction Jumper (CRJ) Option" to lock the drive size to approximately 32 GB. (Note if the CRJ is used on a drive over 32 GB, Ontrack's DDO will not see more than the CRJ forced size of approximately 32 GB).
If your new drive is between 2 GB and 32 GB, and your System Setup (CMOS) is set to "AUTO," you may have a BIOS with a 4096-cylinder limitation that hangs the system during auto-detection. Your computer manufacturer may have a BIOS upgrade that will support more than 4096 cylinders. To continue with this installation, your drive may provide a Cylinder Reduction Jumper (CRJ) setting that lowers the cylinder auto-detection to below the BIOS limitation barrier and still provide full drive capacity using your hard disk installation utility.
In this case, power off your system and install your drive's CRJ or remove your new drive and go to the beginning of these instructions and follow each step.
For drives WITH a Cylinder Reduction Jumper (CRJ) option:
Install the CRJ per drive label instructions.
Set the CMOS drive type using ONE of the following methods listed in preferred order:

Select "Automatic Drive Detection." This allows your computer to configure itself automatically for your new drive.
Select "User-defined" or "Custom" drive setting and set to the following:
1024 cylinders
16 heads
63 sectors
0 write precomp (wp)
0 landing zone (lz)


Select Drive Type 1.
For drives WITHOUT a Cylinder Reduction Jumper (CRJ) option, choose option b) or c) in step 2 above.

Does it apply to me?

princip I think that stuff you posted is refering to IDE drives not sata. Are you using a ide cdrom? Are you haveing any problems with your drives or pc locking up?

Good Luck,

Yes I use IDE dvd roms but the problem only occured after I installed my new HD
The symptoms are very identical to those described in the troubleshooting article
which came with my new hard sata drive.

"added a new drive and your system locks up at boot time (right after turning the power on) or locks up during System Setup"

@princip:

1. Have you tried attaching the drive to another SATA port on your mainboard?
2. Have you replaced a drive or just added another?

Hey Supergroover,
Yes I have tried.
I have just added an extra drive
The problem started on first boot after new drive was installed.

Okay princip,

Did you do as N2Gaming suggested?:
Quote:
remove every thing except for the PSU, MOBO, CPU, RAM & VID are you able to post?
You can use a multimeter to watch your voltages while you POST. You can also monitor your voltages in the BIOS. Somewhere there is an entry called hardware monitor (or something similar) I think it's under the tab "power". Only thing is you cannot watch it while you POST, only when you are already in the BIOS.

In case you can POST, start adding hardware until you start having troubles again. Then report back here.
In case you cannot POST. Make sure everything is in supreme shape (like N2Gaming said: make sure all leads are clean there's no dust or floaties etc. etc.)

Report back to us with the information and don't bring up all kind of other issues (like the IDE report you gave us) without also giving us back the details of the investigation we asked you to find out, since otherwise we don't know where you are in the process.

In case you ask around in the PSU forum, please report back to us in case you have found your answer.

- Super

princip, LOL sounds like a case of I wan't help but not like that...LOL

I'm just teasing you princip it reminds me of a commedian who was on a date with a girl and she wanted him to dance and he explained that he's not a good dancer and did not like to dance. So the girl got him do dance anyway but immediately asked him what he was doing and he said I'm dancing. So she said not like that... lol Oh well I guess it's funnier when the commedian tells it.

Good Luck,

You're kind of right i would prefer an easier way of fixing it. I hate having to get my hardware out ever since I wrekced my last graphics card through over handling. I will however honestly try every measure suggested, Ive just got no time to actually do it properly atm, and I know if I rush it I will do it wrong and probably break my graphics card again.

Thanks for your help folks

Hi There,

Add me to the list guys, I've had this board since it came out, updated the CPU, RAM and more recently the graphic card. Board has carried on going no problems at all. One thing I can't get into though is in the BIOS I can't change the voltage settings for RAM for overclocking.

Thanks
