Look at the chart printed on the drive itself. If there is no chart, post what drive model it is and whether you want master or slave position. You do have an IDE drive, don't you?

Bios pins where is correct placement on DELL 4400

Hello here is the homepage:

To clear the CMOS values
1.Turn OFF the computer and unplug the Power cord.
2. If your motherboard uses jumpers move the jumper from pins 1-2(default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap in this position for about 10-15 seconds, then move the cap back to its original position.
If you motherboard has only two pins for CMOS reset , then you may use use a metallic object like a wire to create a contact between the two pins for 10-15 seconds.
3.Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer .

The bios can also be set to reset, by removing the cmos battery.

Hope this will help you.

What is the jumper pin placement to make a slave of a DiamondMax Plus 9, 80GB hard drive?

The manual is linked below and section 3.3.1 covers jumper settings.
The slave setting shows the park position so you have a jumper on the drive so you can reconfigure it later.

A quick answer is that the slave setting is no jumper at all on the jumper pins.

Where is the correct spot to put the magnet on the spoke for the v12 mini

The only placement requirement for the magnet is that it pass exactly next to the sending unit you mount on the fork (there is usually a mark on the unit). So, really the placement of the sending unit determines the "correct" placement of the magnet on the spoke.

What are the jumper pins on my Maxtor 6l200m0 and 6l200s0 sata drives for?

To control how the computer separates and assigns the drive's working order and placement.

The most basic positions are:

Master - By default the motherboard will boot to this drive first, therefore it's the "master"

Slave- What it sounds like. It's under the "Master" and isn't booted by default.

Cable Select (CS) - What it sounds like as well. The cable that goes from the motherboard to the hard drives. There are TWO positions at which the cable connects to the drives based on their placement. That placement determines which drive is master and which is slave. The advantage of this mode is it's ease of use. (Use only when you've got two hard drives)

That's the basics of the basics. There is A LOT more to those jumpers...but you won't ever need to know what so don't ask ;)

Let me know if you have any other questions.
