A slave drive is defined by removing the jumper (pin sleeve) completely from the drive. Then go into your BIOS and if it doesn't auto-detect as slave, manually change the settings and you'll be good. You shouldn't have to go into your BIOS.

If you can see it as slave in BIOS, but not in Windows that means the drive is not formatted properly and to do so, Right click on My Computer in Windows and goto Manage. It should load the Computer Management window. From there goto Disk Management under Storage in the left side browser. You should see the Hard Drive there, right click on that and format it.

That should do it.

Motherboard leave the display ?


your pc is on but there is no display on the monitor

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty


if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions


even something as small as an electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all electrical power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free


restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard


hope this helps

HD not being detected


Sounds to me its a bad hard drive. Set it as slave and install it into another PC with enough empty hard drive space to copy all needed files. Try to observe also your hard drive if there's any clunking sounds and if it does any, eventually that drive of yours is just waiting the right time to give in.

Back up your files as soon as possible.

Stacking Cable / SuperStack3 3870


Found this on 3Com website: The SuperStack 3 Switch 3870 family (3870-24 and 3870-48) can stack up to 8 units high. Stacks can be formed with any combination of 24-port and 48-port units, with a maximum of 384 (8 x 48) front panel ports supported. When connected together, a stack of units is managed as a single entity. All units in the stack need to run the same release of the operational version code (firmware). When units are stacked together, they operate in a master-slave relationship. One unit acts as a Master and the other units act as slaves. When looking at a stack of units, the master can be identified by looking at the Stack Master LED on the left side of the switch. The Stack Master LED is green for the Master. If the unit numbers are out of sync, go to the CLI command that allows users to re-number their units- system / control / renumber. This will re-number the units in the stack. It will take about a minute or two. The master is the only unit that has a visible command line interface (CLI) when a console cable is connected to it. If you connect the console cable to a slave unit, you will not see the CLI menu, but instead see slave status messages being displayed. The Master unit may not be unit 1. http://knowledgebase.3com.com/consumer/esupport.asp?id=GUIDbfa9caa4%5F138f%5F4681%5Fbaaf%5F5c99ec5b7ff4&resource=&number=0&isExternal=0&nShowFacts=&nShowCause=&nShowChange=&nShowAddInfo=&activepage=statement.asp&bForceMatch=True&strCurrentSymptom=3C17462&searchtype=normal&searchclass=&bnewsession=false&selecttype=match

Tcp slave messages are not forwarded to rtu master


I think your last sentence there might be what the situation really is.  Your not getting a reply back. Maybe you should check the response timeout the gateway has set on it for the slave.  You probably already know a slave’s response time can fluctuate wildly depending on the nature of the request sent, so maybe the timeout setting is too short? Its a place to start. .
