Hi, is the ide-ata enabled in the bios? do you have sata? and is it enabled?also did you put thermal compound on the cpu' s heatsink when you put it back on the cpu? the 2 second on thing sounds like over-heating,do check the bios first. alot of motherboards have a thermal shutdown, so if the fan or compound failed, it would quikly shut off. as for the channels not working-you can try your primary drive, and see if it boots. but first see if it is on in the bios. check and replace the battery on the motherboard. post again if you need help good luck! hope this is helpful.

Can't get my computer to reconize my seagate harddrive


If the seagate is your primary drive, use a different one to boot up the system and then use an adapter to connect the seagate as a secondary drive, and see if your system will recognize it that way. If it's already a secondary drive, try removing it and see if it can be detected on another computer as a portable HDD. If not, then maybe your problem is that the Seagate has finally "bit the dust".

Tip

Boot ur XP faster then ever


First of all, this tweak only apply to those who only have one HDD on their primary IDE channel (nothing else on device 0 or 1) and a CD-ROM and/or DVD-ROM on the secondary IDE channel. Each time you boot Windows XP, there's an updated file called NTOSBOOT-*.pf who appears in your prefetch directory (%SystemRoot%Prefetch) and there's no need to erease any other files as the new prefetch option in XP really improves loading time of installed programs. We only want WindowsXP to boot faster and not decrease its performance. Thanks to Rod Cahoon (for the prefetch automation process...with a minor change of mine) and Zeb for the IDE Channel tweak as those two tricks, coupled together with a little modification, result in an EXTREMELY fast bootup:

1. Open notepad.exe, type "del c:windowsprefetch tosboot-*.* /q" (without the quotes) & save as "ntosboot.bat" in c:
2. From the Start menu, select "Run..." & type "gpedit.msc".
3. Double click "Windows Settings" under "Computer Configuration" and double click again on "Shutdown" in the right window.
4. In the new window, click "add", "Browse", locate your "ntosboot.bat" file & click "Open".
5. Click "OK", "Apply" & "OK" once again to exit.
6. From the Start menu, select "Run..." & type "devmgmt.msc".
7. Double click on "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
8. Right click on "Primary IDE Channel" and select "Properties".
9. Select the "Advanced Settings" tab then on the device 0 or 1 that doesn't have 'device type' greyed out select 'none' instead of 'autodetect' & click "OK".
10. Right click on "Secondary IDE channel", select "Properties" and repeat step 9.
11. Reboot your computer.

WindowsXP should now boot REALLY faster.

Good evening wish you. I use the MK3008GAL HDD in Acer Aspire One 110Aw netbook (original was 8GB SSD). The system appears to be Secondary Master. Why? Can be set as Primary Master? Infrequently heard...


Most motherboards have two "channels", namely PRIMARY and SECONDARY.
Each channel can support two devices, namely MASTER and SLAVE.

So, the "data" cable from your disk-drive is connected to the SECONDARY channel,
and is the MASTER (or maybe "only") device on that channel.

Connecting it to the PRIMARY channel will *NOT* increase the performance of your computer; don't waste your time trying to change it.

Yes, Toshiba disk-drives do "click". However, given that you *DO* have "bad" sectors, you need to replace the disk-drive before it *COMPLETELY* dies, causing the loss of all your files!

Make a BACKUP of all your files, today!

Ide channels not working right after updating dvdrw firmware Set on ide channels should be Primary ide Hard drive primary master. Primary secondary hard drive. Secondary master dvd (read only) Secondary...


Hi,
usually when you update or re-flash the dvd rom.
it will state :- ensure that the drive to be flashed should be jumper set as master. if there were other drives connected to the same ide channel. this could have caused damage to the other drives connected. Or the IDE Channels themselves.
The only suggestion I have for you. is to remove all the drives. disconnect the power from the computer. and remove the cmos battery, for 10-15 seconds. resetting the computers bios back to defaults. then re-settup the drives ensuring that the jumpers are correct for each drive. i.e 1 slave and 1 master on each ide cable.

Drive is not accessible. I/O Device Error


Method 1: Change the transfer mode for your CD drive in IDE Channel Properties
1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.
2. Under Computer Management (Local), click Device Manager.
3. On the right side, expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.
4. Right-click the channel where your CD drive is connected, and then click Properties. Typically, this channel is Secondary IDE Channel.
5. On the Advanced Settings tab, in the Transfer Mode box for the device that represents your CD drive, click PIO Only. Typically, this device is Device 0. Then, click OK.

If the issue is not resolved after you change the transfer mode for the secondary IDE channel device 0, your CD drive may not be located there. Use the same procedure to change the transfer mode back to DMA if available. Then, repeat these steps to change the transfer mode for IDE devices in the following order until the issue is resolved:
• Primary IDE channel, device 1
• Secondary IDE channel, device 1
Note Primary IDE channel, device 0 is connected to your boot disk. This is the hard disk that typically contains your operating system.

OR

Make sure that all cables are connected correctly
If you have another cable, try to use it. For USB devices, try to use another USB port. If it is internal dirve is there then Reseat it that means remove it and reinstal that
Then Set the BIOS as Default for that restart the system and before windows screen it gives the instructions how to boot in setup once you are in setup, on the bottom it says press F9 or F10 to set as default; different BIOS have different options so do the as the on screen instructons says.

OR

Try to access the media or device on another computer; try it on your friend or family computer
if it is not working contact your H/W Vendor

Can't transfer dubbed audio (secondary sound) using firewire.


Audio Dubbing on DV: Here's how you do this: Play your tape on the TRV-9 and feed the signal into the TRV-900, using the Firewire connector. Set the TRV-900's audio option to record in the 12-bit mode. When this is done, you will have the video re-recorded on the TRV-900 and the audio laid down on the primary 12-bit audio channel. Then, you can run the tape back through for a 2nd pass in the TRV-900, with the recorder set to the audio-dubbing mode. The audio you put into the TRV-900 this time, will be recorded on the secondary 12-bit channel. You can select either 12-bit channel when you play the edited tape back or you can mix both stereo channels into the output. Once you record on the 16-bit channel, you can't dub audio back onto that recording, without erasing the original channel, as the recording space for both 12-bit channels is occupied. You can't selectively re-record just audio onto the 16-bit channel either, without the video being re-recorded along with it. Both video and audio are sent over the same Firewire connector, so you can't input them from mixed sources, as you can with analog recordings. Only the secondary 12-bit audio channel can be used in the audio-dubbing mode. You can't dub onto the 16-bit channel or onto the primary 12-bit channel. The primary 12-bit channel can be used only when you're recording video along with it.
