Hi,
It is possible that your hard drive is not S.M.A.R.T. capable, which simply means that you most likely wont be forewarned when your hard drive is about to fail. To prevent this S.M.A.R.T. message, check in your CMOS setup(by pressing DEL usually) when your PC starts up. Go through the list of BIOS settings until you find a setting to enable/disable S.M.A.R.T for hard drives. This is most likely enabled for your board. If so, disable the S.M.A.R.T. feature, then save these settings and restart your pc.
For any clarification or further assistance, please don't hesitate to post another message.
Hope this sorts your problem.

Biostar TA790GXE 125M keeps shuting down when I boot windows, on SATA and IDE hard drives


Run the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Im just wondering why i might need a slave drive, i have a 80 gig master and a spare 80g drive should i put them both in or does it realy matter


slave drive is very handy in backup files you can store data and other software and drivers. it does matter becouse master drive always has the operating system that the virus and error always happen. hard drive with IDE connector has two jumper setting slave and master. connected to IDE cable. sata disk has no master slave..

Ide slot not working


sounds like you have a bad controller. You should have a primary ide controller that is noramaly used by the hard drive, then a secondary used by the optical drive. Try putting the DVD drive on the some ide cable as the hard drive.

I cant install windows xp because of... i dont know!


Here is what you should do, go to a computer store and buy a 40G HD. Try installing on that. It could be the size, but most likly not. Im going to guess and say take a look at the bottom of your reinstall disk. If it has any scratches, there is your problem. NTLDR is your boot sector on you HD.
