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!

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!

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

Yes you can upgrade it to 160 GIG of hard drive so just simply replace the old one and of coarse you need to install a new operating system to the new drive.....

Audio from only one rear channel


Hi,

I have an Intel P4M890-M7 SE motherboard & I am only getting rear audio from one channel with windowos XP. (I have no front audio).

I have been told that the audio jumper settings on the mother board may need adjusting.

Does anyone know where abouts on the motherboard I can find this jumper & what setting should it be on for stereo?

Many thanks,
