Hello Techs Helpers... I am looking for an inexpensive fixed for my Quantum Fireball KX27A011 (27.3GB IDE) that was fried/toasted. If you have the model laying around that you are interested to sell please contact me. I have literally thousands of family pictures in the hard drive. This happened about 5 years ago when harddrive this small of a size were still very expensive for me to afford.

Quantum Fireball KX27A011 (27.3GB IDE) it is very important that it has a label with Rev 01-B on it. (e.q. 27.3AT P/N KX27A011 Rev 01-B)

What settings in the bios with maxtor as slve and quantom fireball as master


There are no settings in the BIOS for setting up master ans slave drives.
The hard drives have jumpers for configuring master and Slave drives.
If your hard drives are IDE/PATA hard drives and you intend to install these drives on the same IDE cable then you can set the jumper on Quantum drive as Master and the Maxtor on Slave.
I suggest that you install the Quantum as master on the 1st IDE cable and the Maxtor as Master on the 2nd IDE cable for maximum data transfer rate between the two hard drived.
Any other devices that are connected to these IDE cables will need to be jumpered as Slave devices.

Looking for a manual and motherboard layout for a compaq presario 4090us 4000 seirs 900MHz duron processor


According to my sources a Compaq Presario 4090us is supposed to use an FIC AZ31 motherboard.
FIC = First International Computer, Inc.)

I don't have a motherboard manual available, but MAY have a motherboard layout.

Supporting Data:

Specifications from HP Support: (HP bought out Compaq)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00009310&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=92635

1) Processor:
AMD Duron 900
Maximum Frequency Rate: 900MegaHertz
Front Side Bus: (FSB) 200MHz
Voltage: 1.6 Volts (DC)
Wattage used at maximum capability: 36.5 Watts
Part Number: (Top of Processor case. Heatsink, and thermal paste removed)
D900AUT1B

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Duron_microprocessors#Duron_.22Spitfire.22_.28Model_3.2C_180_nm.29

2) Ram Memory:
Maximum Total Amount: 768MB
Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot: 256MB
SDR Sdram at 100MHz (PC100)

[Note* SDR Sdram is Single Data Rate Sdram, ram memory. Misnomer of just naming it Sdram is incorrect. All ram memory from SDR up to DDR3, IS Sdram]

3) Harddrive: 30B IDE harddrive. Should be a Quantum Fireball LCT20. (Part Number: QM30000-LD-A)

4) Motherboard Chipset: Sources state that it's a VIA KT133 chipset.
[Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C., or Integrated Circuit]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VIA_chipsets#Slot_A_and_Socket_A

As you can see in the chart reading across from KT133, this chipset supports AP graphics cards that are 4X. Same thing is stated in the specifications from HP Support.

5) The HP Support specifications also state that the mobo (MOtherBOard) has one Primary IDE header for an IDE harddrive, one Secondary IDE header for an IDE optical drive, and one IDE header for a Floppy Disk drive.

Motherboard layout for an FICAZ34 mobo, which I believe is the same, in an additional comment to follow.

Adding old hard disk. 20 GB Quantum Fireball Ict, in Dell 9200 PC


if it's old it's probably IDE also known as PATA. it looks like a wide ribbon. There should be a header on the motherboard that looks exactly like the plug on the back of the hard drive. It will be labeled IDE1 probably if you have it. Old motherboards used to have 2 IDE headers, modern ones have one or none. The ribbon will have three plugs--one for the mobo, and then two spaced closer together for the master and the slave. You need to hook it to the appropriate plug (master if it's the only device on the ribbon) and make sure the jumpers on the HD are set properly to make it self-identify as the master. Good luck!

How to Add an Extra Hard Drive Need more storage


From what i've read, it has a SATA hard drive with it. check the PC's Motherboard. If it has an IDE slot with it, then yes you can use it. But if not, you may need to purchase a new SATA HDD to use as an extra storage for your PC. Hope this helps.

Maybe getting some of that stuff off of the C: drive will help. Windows needs 15% free drive space to run correctly. Going to a bigger drive is also an option. depends on how old the system is.

I looking the quantum fireball CX10.oA (10.00GB) JUMPER


Which jumper are you looking for, if it's for the setting of Master/Slave/Cable Select it's ususually a bank of three pins set, 6 pins total, between the power connector and the IDE connector. If thats what you are looking for, write back and I'll send you the setting for whichever you're wanting to set the drive as.
