Question about Tekram P6 B40-A4X Motherboard
I recently replace an hdd that i was using in this same system only to realise that the mb cannot detect the hd. the hd works perfectly in another system. this drive is setup as a slave on the secondary ide connector, with a master on the primary. i even tried detecting it from the bios but it only see's my master c drive. i also used another good drive in its stead but the mb see's the drive but it does not show up in windows explorer. i'm using windows 2000. please can someone help me. thanks for your time.
Hi, have you tried changing the IDE Cable & tried the cable connected to Primary IDE & Seconary IDE Slot on the motherboard by disconnecting any other devices including cdrom etc? as it should give you a idea of which is at fault All the best John

Rickyrudy, I suspect one of the following may work: -The problem drive is set as the slave on the secondary IDE channel. If it?s the only drive change it to the master. -Try checking the drive setup setting in the BIOS, make sure both drives are set to auto detect in the BIOS. If this works don?t forget to try setting the unused drive setting to none to speed up the boot process. -If you are using jumpers to define the master and slave double check the settings against the chart on the drive in question. -If you?re using cable select to define master/slave drives try using the jumpers instead. Let us know if this works and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
