IDE Problem (I Think)

New mobo / case / PS kit form Tiger . Known good HD from previous box. With IDE and power connected, HD is dead. If I remove IDE (either from HD or mobo) HD spins up fine.

Any suggestions before returning the new mobo for replacement?

    I have the same thing. I'm trying to put in a new IDE HDD, and DVD writer drive, and neither will work with both IDE and power cables attached - just nothing. As soon as IDE cable is removed they both power up fine. Is this a BIOS problem? Do i just need to enable IDE in BIOS (if it isn't already), or could it be something else? HELP!

Depends what kind of motherboard is. You may want to check with a different IDE ribbon cable. Make sure that the IDE controller is ENABLED within BIOS. Set the HDD as Master - see those jumpers next to the power and data connectors. Try with another (IDE) HDD and see if the controller is working. Don't asume the 1st HDD is working OK, you never know ...it may be broken now ...

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

Was diagnos bad pwr supply,replaced power supply & now it wont do


I assume that you have a video card, and ram plugged in otherwise no startup. If so and you are absolutely certain of good power supply then it could be dead CPU / mobo. Did you buy a new power supply and ensure that the CPU power plug is plugged on the mobo?

Hard disk doesnot detect


Hi....

If your hard drive will not be detected, be sure that your hard drive is connected correctly. Check you hard drive if it is plug in the power and the SATA or IDE cable.

Have you experience having trouble by this error, DISK BOOT FAILURE.
This is a hard drive problem witch is not correctly connected.

If your hard drive are correctly connected, try yo first boot your hard drive in the BIOS.

Hope it may helpful for you,,

Thanks for using fixya

Secondary IDE channel


the motherboard you have can only support 4 SATA Drives. if you want to use your IDE drives, you have 3 options: 1) buy a SATA to IDE Converter which is around $20-$25. (if you selected this, you can fix the drives into the internal of the pc). 2) buy USB to IDE converter $10-$15. (if you want to fix the drive inside the pc, remove one PCI slot casing cover at the back of the computer casing and use the USB slot at the back of PC). Hope this helps. Good Day!

Computer Build Problem


Try taking out the mobo and ps out of its casing, lay it on a table, hook things together and power it up. I had some problems before caused by mounting studs or try insulating all stubs from the mobo. hope this will help.

Maybe a silly question to ask; but did you connect the processor power lead, as unlike some processors this needs a seperate supply.
