Question about Computers & Internet
I had SAMSUNG 6 GB HD but he died in a great
stile (strange loud noises from inside). So I replaced him with Maxtor 40GB, but mu motherboard does not recognize it. BIOS version is 05/13/1999-i440bx-w977tf-2a69kc39c-00. I assume that BIOS upgrade will solve this problem but I don’t know where to look for it. When I try to log on chaintech web site, they ask me for username and password, which I don’t have! I need that computer as soon as possible! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Check the jumpers on the back of your drives,also if you are using the wide flat wires(ide) remember their not indestructable they will tear on either side if ther'e twisted enough,if your not finding a simpler solution for the bios misread I suggest you don;t try a bios flash on your own good luck
