Question about Computers & Internet
I have been using the KOB P4M266 NDSUMx motherboard with P4 1.9GHz CPU. My Hard disk capacity was 40GB and DDR ram of 256MB.Recently I upgraded the Hard drive to 160GB (New drive + Old 40GB hard dirve) and RAM to 1GB (Plus old 256 MB). Now what i am facing is that the Boot time of my machine has gone pretty high to 1 minute . Can you please help me know what exactly might be the cause for the problem ?I also noted that the Motherboard display(Make ) appears after about 20seconds after turning on my PC .Also the Hard drive which I have newly installed (160GB) gets detected only for the Capacity i.e 160GB and I am unable to the change the Drive set up to User in the BIOS set up as well.
first let's determine if the upgrade cause the boot speed.
Disconnect your NEW HDD and/or memory, one by one and see if you get back your fast boot. Then try with your NEW components only !
If you find it works better with new components only, then first connect your OLD HDD only and try.
If you connect both HDDs on one cable, check Jumper settings for both HDDs (Master/Slave).
Also HDD capacity and type is automatically detected by the BIOS and there is no need to put/change those settings manually.
I believe you new RAM is DDR type, too!
As written in the manual for the board, your motherboard has two pairs of memory slots, and you can use one or two modules of DDR memory, OR one or two modules of SDRAM memory, but you can NOT put BOTH DDR and SDRAM memory modules.
