When i turn my computer on it loads up but it show a breif message sayin ide channel 1 no 80 conductor cable installed and wehn i go into my bios it will just suddonly crash and if i press the restart button on the front of my computer i will jst stay on the load up screen telling me about my cpu and nothing else but it will freeze up when i restart aswell

Re: more problems lol
Your channel 1 no 80 conductorcable,
tell me that you have mounted a new HDD to your computer,
If there isn't a 80 wire cable, then the drive that came with the box was not a speedy one.
If you only have a 40 wire cable the drive will be limited to 33MB/s transfer versus 100 or 133MB/s that's possible with the 80 wire cable.
With the 40's, all the wires are signal carriers (potentially). With the 80's, there is a ground wire between each signal wire to prevent bleed over. Bleed over can affect signal integrity, cause errors, and slow down performance.
you can fix that in one of two ways(or maybe both):-):
1. Go into your BIOS, and set it to run the hard drive auto detection to make sure its not holding on to any old hard drive settings.
2. Make sure that all connections are tight. You might want to try a different cable and if you do make sure it is the 80 wire type. The connectors on the 80 wire are colored (black,blue and gray)
The part with it telling you about your CPU is just a part of the testing procedure.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Before doing anything, the user should completely shut down and unplug the computer to prevent electrocution or computer damage. Remove the computer's side panel so that the hard drive is displayed in order to find the jumpers on the IDE drive. Disconnect the power and IDE cables from the hard drive to access the drive better. The hard drive's jumpers are the small, black pegs on the back of the drive. These pegs fit over small metal conductors and assign the IDE drive's role. The user can remove the jumpers by prying them off of their current conductors with his/her fingernails or a small screwdriver. The jumpers can then be relocated to other conductors in order to assign a role to the IDE drive. The user should be very careful while handling the Maxtor jumpers as they are fragile and very important.Each IDE drive model is different but most have three basic settings: Cable Select, Master, and Slave. Each setting is described below.
Cable Select is a Maxtor jumper setting that is the default for virtually all IDE drives. Cable Select allows an IDE drive to naturally become either a Master or Slave depending on the cable used. Cable Select is a neutral setting and is also often used when a user only has one IDE device installed or when a device is neither a Master or a Slave, such as a Floppy Disk drive.
It means you're still using the 40 conductor cable from the MB IDE to the hard drive. The 80 Conductor Cables are used to take advantage of the newer Ultra/ATA-66 and up IDE drives. (They will still work with the 40 conductor cable, but slower.)
Your error could be several things, but here is what to do to make it work....Listed in order so do them and then see if you get the error and if you do then do the next fix....
FIRST: Load the set up defaults in the BIOS Setup. This may get it all to work.
SECOND: Use an 80-conductorcable connected in thePrimaryIDE
socket on the motherboard with the other end connected to the hard
disk. You see you may be using an old type of cable and/or it may be connected to the secondary IDE channel. Installing the right cable in right socket will solve your problem.
THIRD: Double check your cables and jumper settings. As long as you have confirmed them to be in their correct positions, you go straight to the BIOS and enable Smart Drive capability for your hard drive.
Set all your drives to be Auto detected and reboot the PC.
IF the message and problem still appear you must now go to Device Manager and go to System. Open Systems and go to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers, and you will now see primary and secondary channels. Click on the primary channel first and open the properties box.
Next go to the advanced settings and make sure the transfer modes on device 0 and device 1 are set to DMA if available. Do the same for the secondary channel as well and allow the PC to reboot.
If all that fails, go and have your motherboard checked out for faults.
That warning (and it's just a warning) is telling you that the IDE port can handle an 80-pin cable, but you've only got the standard 40-pin cable attached. There is no problem, but that message will always come up unless you use the faster cable. (cheap item)
The title says something about a CMOS checksum error, so i'll answer that too. That usually happens when someone has reset the BIOS back to defaults either by shorting the reset pins or by removing the battery (which looks exactly like you described).
You'll probably want to go into the BIOS and set things back up... date and time etc.
check the cables, and if all connection pins are on the drives or on the motherboard. Not all the needed communication routs between the drives and the motherboard are working.... U can also try another IDE slot (if more than 1) If all checks ok, try a BIOS reset... (but most probably is just the cables ...)
I dont quite get how you've got them connected so I'll tell you how I'd do it.
First of all, it is kind of standard to put the primary drive at the end of the cable but it doesnt really matter. I go with what ever physically works best.
Connect your 2 IDE devices to the same IDE channel (cable) unless you have 2 IDE channels then put each on their own channel or cable. Make sure you are using 60 conductor cables for each.
If both are on the same cable: Set the dvd's jumper to slave. Set the hard drive jumper to master OR vice versa. *Some DVD burners do not like to be slave, or even on the same channel as another device.
The following is the ideal set up If each is on their own channel (cable): Set each to master
Be sure bios is set to auto detect for all channels, master & slaves. ** If this doesnt resolve your problem, please post a comment before rating.
1. if on pressing the eject button on the drive, the DVD loading arm comes out.
2. if yes, replug your IDE cable.
3. If it does not work try using another IDE cable.
4. If still the same problem, connect it to anothet IDE port.
5. If the problem is still there get your DVD drive checked.
I assume you have not fiddled with the jumper settings.
