    Hey guys, i need some help.

    I have a Sata Via6421a chipset and trying to run it on my pc. Unfortunately the pc is outdated and therefore is there anyway to slow down the sata card so that my pc could recognise it?

    Another attempt at getting around this is that i purchased a USB 2.0 IDE & SATA Cable to externally connect it to my laptop/ For some reason the Sata card isn't recognised by the cable. So Now im baffled as to what to do.

    Do you have a friend who has a newer PC you could use? It doesn't take long to flash. I have 3 PCs myself and the 1st one I tried had a MOBO too old to work so I just used the next one.

    That is possible, but my mates arent really pc enthusiasts. he did however bought a package desktop few years back (3 years ago?) would that be sufficient in handling a sata card?

    As long as the motherboard has a PCI slot, then a 3 yr. old computer should work fine. It works on my old ASUS board with a Celeron 1.3Ghz proc. :)

    My was an AMD PC. I forget which motherboard, but it was 3-4 years old and I could never get it to work. Maybe a bios update could help, but a newer MOBO will see it easily.

    Ah forget it, I've decided to take a new approach - upgrade my motherboard and cpu processor. Any foreseeable problems with doing this?

    Im gonna spend bout £150 ($300?) on a new set, maybe bung in some of those RAM cards too.. I just started on reading custom computer magazines and have a very faint idea about what to do.

    Im sure most new motherboards will come with sata capability, especially with the budget im planning on using.
