Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC
HARDDRIVE FAILED. I FITTED ANOTHER HARDDRIVE. NOW WHEN I PRESS THE ON BUTTON THE GREEN "ON " INDICATOR
AND THE POWER CABLE LIGHT BOTH FLASH ON FOR ABOUT ONE SECOND THEN GO OFF. THEN THE POEWR CABLE LIGHT FLASHES ORANGE CONTINUALLY. EVEN WITH THE POWER CABLE DISCONNECTED I TRIED A BOOT DISK IN THE FLOPPY DRIVE STILL NOTHING I REMOVED THE BATTERY FOR 24 HRS STILL NOTHING
Sounds very much like either the HD plug is incorrectly posistioned ( pins maybe one or two places to left or right due to a bent pin .. ) or the HD has been installed upside down .. unlike the 3.5" ide plugs very few 2.5" have position guides to stop you from inserting the HD incorrectly and due to their small size and awkward fittings this is exceptionaly easy to do . Another thing that sometimes happens is that the soldering joints on the ide socket wouldnt pass any exhibition displays and are flimsyly attached and become loose due to the preassure of the new hard drive being inserted if this is the case special soldering equipment is needed to resolder the ide plug on the circuit board .. and shouldnt be attempted by the untrained unless you can afford a new computer as static and error damage by the layperson are a service engineers biggest pay packet boost . Changing a hard drive is one thing soldering on a multilayered circuit is something else ? . I hope this has been of help to you Regards Vortash
