Belkin G+ Desktop Card

I just bought the Belkin G+ Desktop Card, and followed the manufacturer's guide, installed the disk on my win xp desktop, then was prompted to insert the card into my pc and switch it back on. After a successful installation, I re-started my computer, only to find the message ""reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device". I rebooted but got the same message, I then rebooted into BIOS, and got the following message "setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer". I have spoken to Belkin, who tell me I have to contact my PC supplier. Well, firstly my PC supplier is no longer in business, and secondly the PC was working perfectly well before the Card install. Can anyone please help me. I urgently need to get this pc back up and running again. Thank you

Something you have done has stopped the hard disk drive from working.

first check all the internal connections between the hard disk drive and mother board and hard drive and power supply.

Wiggle them around and make sure they are in straight.

then check you didnt drop any screws etc inside the pc and these are shorting something out

you need to check that the ribbon cables that connect your hard disk drive werent damaged when you fitted the wireless card

then i think you need some help

confirm that the pc can boot from a floppy or cd
you might need to change the bios settings first

you need to check all the bios settings if there is any chance that you might have changed them accidently

you need to check that the power supply is working correctly (unlikely)

i wouldnt expect that it is the card that caused the problem

then i would consider the possiblity that there was a virus on the installation disk (unlikely)

then i might wonder if coincidently the hard disk drive failed at that time.

Card installation

1) Turn the computer on. When Windows has loaded all the way, put the Installation (CD) disk in your optical drive. Load the software.

No disk? Go to the Sound Card manufacturers website, and download the software. Now INSTALL it.

If asked to restart your computer -> NO
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off.

FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions, and computer unplugged from power, open the computer case, and physically install the Sound Card.

Close the computer case, do not forget to hook up the audio wires to your sound card.
Plug computer into power, WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

2) Doesn't have a sound adapter card, and is just Integrated Audio?
Download AND install the audio drivers from Asus for that motherboard, AND Operating System you are using.
(Win XP and Win 7, are two examples of an O/S)

Need further guidance than this?
Post the Sound Card manufacturer and Model Number.
Also post the model number of the Asus motherboard.

Computer system problem

Your hard disk might be SATA interface, and XP don't have access to this type of hardisk. It requires RAD driver for that type of disk.

1). You can make your HDD accessable to XP by disabling the SATA mode in your system BIOS setup. Then XP will access your HDD and it will be installed.

2). You can also make your HDD accessable to XP by atchi driver. Go to your motherboard manufacturer site and download SATA driver according to model number. This may be compressed or auto extract exe. Extract all files and copy it into a floppy disk. Then start your XP and press F6 at first screen, then it will be prompted to insert RAD driver from setup, follow the instructions and XP will be installed on your system.
