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 ...

Compaq cq42 no power


First you tell me that How old your compaq laptop. I think First thing is unplug power and remove battery. Then hold power button for a minute or two. Then plug the laptop and try to power on. If it still doesn't power on, you might have a problem with the power pack, the plug or even worse with the mobo. In those cases you might want to test with another charger. If the mobo is dead think about getting a new laptop.

After power on my eMachines C6537, there is no beep sound and nothing shown on screen. The CPU fan and fan in the box are working. The HD drive spin sounds normal. No problem to open doors of DVD and CD...


Disconnect the power cable open the case and pull the CR 2032 battery out for a minute. That will reset the BIOS. If you have no Beep Codes at all the MoBo might be dead. If this were just a video issue there'd be Beep codes. If there's more than one stick of RAM Pull one try to boot then do same with second stick. if there's only one stick of RAM try reseating it.

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?

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!

My Maxtor 3200 died also. I took the following steps to get it running again.
(1) Remove plastic box from around unit. Carefully stick a screwdrive in the case division and pry it apart. It is not easy, but do will finally come apart.
(2) inside you will find a perforated metal box. There are two screw on each side of the box. Remove and separate the two halves.
(3) there you will discover that inside is just an ordinary Maxtor hard drive like you would buy in the electronics store. Attached to the HD is a PC board. There are 3 screws holding the PC board down. Remove the screws and carefully remove the HD and PC board.
(4) unplug the powere plug and the IDE interface from the HD. Now you have a HD that you can install in your own case (as long as you have a desktop unit and not a laptop).
(5) I installed the HD in an empty slot, connected the IDE cable that was already there (between the CD and IDE interface), plugged in the power plug, fired 'er up, and voila, works like a champ.

I suspect that the problem is in the interface (PC board), since the only thing I did was remove that from the equation. Hope this helps

Kudos! Thanks!

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.
