Hello! Urgent! i really need help! :( Pleeeease! :( I was modeling in 3ds max when suddenly my pc hanged for almost 5 minutes, then i hit th restart button but the next thing was my pc cant detect my hard drive and even my dvd writer. But then i thought i have some virus or something but when i try to place my hard disk to another computer there's no problem and it was detected without any virus and my os is at a perfect state, i thought i have a problem with my ide cable so replaced it but my problem is still there, someone told me that my ide slot is damaged and told me that and there's nothing i could do but to replace it. my question is== is my motherboard damaged? if it is, can i get it repaired? my mother board is ecs K8M800-M2 , processor- semphron 1.6 ghz, memory of 512 and vidcard of 256mb128 bit... HELP ME :(( huhuhu i have a deadline in my work:( huhuhu
A few things you can try:
1. Just install the hard drive as Primary Master and leave the DVD out or install in secondary;
2. Install the HD as Secondary master;
3.If the motherboard is really at fault, continue your work in another PC and install your HD as a secondary master. You will still have access to your old files/data and continue working and hopefully meet your deadline; and/or
4. Use an external enclosure to connect your HD as a removable USB Mass Storage to a 2nd PC.
Hope this be of some help/idea. pls post back how things stand or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
