Did you look at the jumper settings at the back of the hard drive. It should show you how to set the jumpers for slave or master or cable select. Once you set your jumpers it should work.

Installed a sata hard drive but will not boot now tryed the ram not a problem with the ram could my mother board be dead


You would not have given your hard disc as the master device. You will have a jumper at the backside of your HDD which will decide whether that device is to be detected as Master or slave. So change it as Master if its slave and try booting your system.

Else the HDD must have got corrupted. Try reinstalling XP in ur HDD if the above solution doesnt work.

I want to install a Hitachi Deskstar drive and the


Based on normal configurations, you should make sure that the pin settings on your main boot drive is set to master, and then make sure that your Deskstar is set to slave. If that doesn't work, then you might have a Bios setup issue. Let me know.

Problem with sata HDD probably?


check the bios settings first. if you can see your sata hdd and dvd rom drive then you can install it with no problem. or else try to replace the cables of the hdd if the hdd is not showing up in the bios.
also check that the hdd is set to master drive and dvd also set to master as they are on different connections.

MOTHERBOARD PROBLEM


Check the jumpers of harddrives it should be MASTER and the two CD drive are set to SLAVE... Then cable 1 contains one master (winxp loader) and one slave (combo). The second cable contains one master (new 80gb) and one slave (CD-ROM).

Boot in safe mode to repair itself... Press F5 for that before it reads the OS

Good luck... Fixya
