Re: Wont Install

If this is an intel DG965WH board:
This may sound strange, but I had similar problem.
In bios set SATA controller to IDE mode.
This uses a different driver and doesnt need Intel Matrix Storage Manager to read SATA CD/DVD drives.

This happened with 4 mobo's

I have connected the cable from the printer to the lap top correctly but it still comes back saying the the laptop cannot recognise the printer. The connection was bought from Currays and I was assured it...

Hi graham_mcleo
The printer came with a install disc ( cdrom ) .
Disconnect the printer , launch the cdrom , follow instructions and wait for the driver/software to be correctly installed . Connect the printer with usb and power cables , swich printer on . Windows should recognize a new hardware and a message should pop on your screen telling installation was successfull or hardware is ready to use , depending on what system you are using .

Vga is not working my mother board is a n1996

Mabee the hard drive has failed . try entering bios and see if the hard drive is recognised .If not try turning the computer off unplug it then reconnect the drive data cable and power cable
then re- start the computer and see if it is recognised. some models of older hard drives needed a driver installed during set up -- you usually have to put the driver on a floppy disc and hit the f6 button when prompted by windows set up to install third party drivers . I hope this helps

I have a m2n61-ax dell board,I install a second dvd rewrite lg window will not see the drive????


if These Are IDE devices, ensure That The Jumpers Are Set To Slave And Master. If The Device still Is Not Recognised, Try Putting It On The Secondary IDE Channel, with A seperate Cable. Or Add it to The Hard-Drived Cable. If The Hard-Disk Is Jumper-Set as Slave, Move Jumper-Pin ( Small Plastic Block ) on the rear Of The Drive To Master.

Computer wont let me install new operating system.

Anytime you get the Setup cannot copy the file xxxx, press x to retry, can be caused by any of several problems such as a dirty or damaged CD/DVD ROM, viruses or RAM. Make sure all of your hard ware is working. Also third-party applications can cause it (software that did not come with windows). Given the age of your computer (it came out over 10 years ago) I would guess some hardware is not found or not compatable with XP. If you can find a WIN2000 disk then you may have some luck. Also, the microsoft website has a Hard Ware Compatibility List program that checks your computer to see if it is compable with XP. Just search for it on their website....bottom line is technology has come a long way and older computers can no longer work on newer Windows, that's how Windows makes money, they shut off the software to a computer after a while..please rate this solution

Bios doesn't recognise harddrive or dvd rewriter

sound like th cable is reverse.
read the manual first, make sure the momories are in the correct orientation. DO NOT FORCE IT.
un-plug the hard drive and the DVD. try to run on the computer. if it turn, then plug in one item at a time.

Since Intel manual doesn't tell you which is pin1 on the IDE cable. you nee to make sure the cable with red bend on one side is plug into the IDE socket on the motherboard label pin1 and the other end is plug into the IDE hard drive facing the power plug.
SATA cable can go in only one way.
