one bad/faulty lead can cause a computer lots of problems
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty

ECS 6100SM-M hangs on POST


Check memory, remove or replace sticks of memory with just one piece in the slot closes to the CPU. Now try a power on and see if it boots. You have at lease one good stick of memory to boot.

Wont power up ecs motherboard


Your 4-pin power connector supplies voltage to your CPU through some series of MOSFET transistors. First try to disconnect your CPU from the socket and power up your motherboard. Your CPU might be toasted. MOSFET transistors might be bad. Also look at your big caps around the CPU. If they have bubbled tops, you need to replace them.

Good luck

Windows can't detect any hard drive


Hello.
Have you check if every thing is ok in the setup ?
If you have the documentation of your Hard drive, set the HDD
manually( cilinders, heads, etc), i don't know the difference between 4M and 3M models, but may be significant.
The battery wont have any effect in the BIOS, you should thanks god for that, because if you could erase what is in the BIOS you could say good bye to your PC.
In order to recognize many new devices the BIOS manufacturer make software updates you can download ( if available)from they website an install it ( i don't recommend you to do that unless you have no other option).
The battery is only for the CMOS, a memory that keeps your setup configuration when you turn off your PC.

- Most Probable cause of that problem and possible solution:

You hard drive must be partitioned and properly formated.

You will have to start you computer using a 3 1/2 floppy disk or bootable CD with MS-DOS.
Note: go to SETUP and set the right drive to boot from first( A: in case of floppy, CD in case of CD), save and exit
Make sure the disk have some commands you will need, FORMAT among them.
I suggest you look for totorials about partitioning a hard drive.
Is no big deal but you have to know what you are doing.
Create a partition using FDISK command and activate it
then format the drive.
Now it is ready to be recognized for Windows.
In the process of windows installation( only XP), right before it start it will ask if you wish to format de Drive, answer yes( the fast one) and choose NTFS( a more efficient Partition for windows XP.

I hope this help you.
Good luck
