Hi,

Check that the hard drive is set to "slave" on the jumper settings where you connect it (if it's IDE). Also, check the boot order in the BIOS (or setup as it may be called when booting up) to make sure that they computer's not trying to boot off the new drive rather than the old one. I don't think the jumpers on the motherboard will help you at ALL. Drive jumpers are the only thing and as mentioned - set the new drive to SLAVE and make sure the original drive is on MASTER (this is usually all recorded on the top of the drive on the label)

Good luck!

My Dell latitud 3100, Can't see my new fx geforce 5200 256mb


Uninstall your previous graphics card drivers and install the ones for your 5200, if that doesn't work try getting the new drivers from the nVidia site or just smash it with a hammer!

I have a motherboard that has only has one ide conncetions


what you should do is make the 300 gig as second drive and your primary drive is the 80 gig so that you can view and back-up the contents inside it. If you going to install a new copy of Operating system that would be in the 80 gig so that you don't need to format your 300 gig and make it as second drive. Hope this could help you..Thanks..

Need to know how to upgrade a hard drive from a 8 gig to 80 gig


I am typing this on a Dell 4600 RIght now. You need to look up how to set the jumpers on the internal hard disk ( 8GB) to SLAVE MODE, and set the 80GB to Master.
Remove the 8GB from the metal bracket, and put the 80GB in its place. Put the 8GB beside it. Plug the 80GB into the end of the IDE cable, and the 8GB into the middle. When you boot, you can hit F2 to go into the bios, and change the boot order from HD0 to HD1 and you can boot from your 8GB.

Now, If you want to boot from the 80GB, ( which I would ) you need an operating system.

Get your Disk labeled Reinstallation CD, Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Including Service Pack 1, and boot from it. Then format the 80GB, and install the OS There.. You will need your WIndows XP Home Key. ( you can either get it off the case or use Magic Jelly Bean Key finder to get it off your 8GB. Get the key and write it down. ITS IMPORTANT ).

Then you can change your boot order in BIOS, back to HD0, and boot from your fresh copy of XP Home.

If your interested in having a close to seamless experence as possible, you might want to invest in a copy of Partition Magic Pro. It can copy both the restore partition, ( the first 600MB of your 8gb disk ) and the primary partition of the 8gb, and resize the 8gbs primary partion on the 80gb to 80gb. ( YEA! ).

If you have *any* *any* lack of understanding please clarify

Will not boot,bios does not show a hard drive,only two CD drives


The peripheral devices as Hard disk and cdrom is not connected with the IDE cable or has loose contace. Even power cable of devices is not properly done or left out. So you need to check the IO IDE cable connetions and the power cable connections of the devices being connected to the mother board.

CMOS checksum bad 0085


the problem might lie in the fact that the mother board and cpu cannot be handled at the speed

or it requires the jumpers to be set by so that the cpu can be clocked properly if you got a mother board spec guide follow the guide for *********** board to set up 3.2

you might also have to set the bios to the cpu speed cause if mother board doesnt do jumpers no more the setting would be in bios
hit the delete key direct are power up this will take you to bios
its not the battery

No booting


The problem is Operating systems are co-dependent on hardware.
If the motherboards, processors, ram, video adapters, etc don't match you would not be able to swap hard drives and expect to boot.

You could try pressing F8 on boot and try to access safemode.

If it does boot into safemode immediately it will want to reactivate windows.(because of all the hardware changes.

If it still can't boot, you may want to put the 80 gig in as slave to the 40gig and ghost the 40 gg hard drive over to the 80.

If you don't want to lose your data on the 80 gig then reboot with an xppro cd and reinstall windows in the same partition overlaying the installation on top of existing windows directory.

the new windows will have to be activated but all data will still be there.
