Question about Computers & Internet
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?
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 ...
