I would suggest defaulting the bios, either by way of the cmos jumper, or by entering the bios at boot, selecting "load defaults" from the menu at the bottom of the screen, save and exit. If setting the defaults does not fix the onboard IDE then you have a hardware failure. They make IDE adaptors that plug into a PCI slot, that could get you back into operation, but I'm afraid if the IDE has gone on the mobo, what's next? I would be afraid something else will fail.
Maybe you'll get lucky with the defaults.

    One more thing occurred to me. If the mobo has SATA connectors, it may disable the ATA when the defaults are set. If that is the case, you will simply need to enable ATA in the bios.

check your IDE cable if its working or attach properly so the device will be detected, also check the power supply socket that series on each drive,might some wire not properly inserted or might the power supply itself is the problem.

I have tried to change the ram and every thing but the computer wont boot up only ends with an orange light thats all.


always place the ram with the biggest closest to you CPU central processing unit and try to keep it the same brand/type if you have done this to no satisfaction

one bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

hope this helps

Generally an indication that the Hard Drive isn't detected
Things to check, go to BIOS F2, reset defaults and reboot, see if the HDD is seen. If it is, the battery on the motherboard is likely dead and needs replacement (Watch battery at Walmart, 3 dollars)
If the HDD doesn't detect after resetting the BIOS, then most likely a Hard Drive failure

Dell optiplex gx110 device detection problem


I'm guessing that the computer is not booting at all. This is saying that it cannot find any hard drive to talk to. Drives are labeled in the computer code with numbers starting at 0. There are up to 2 drives on an IDE ribbon cable, the Primary, and the "slave" or secondary. So, possibilities are that your hard drive died, the power connector to it came loose, or the power supply itself is having an issue with that connection that is attached to the hard drive.

Dell Optiplex Gx280 - cant detect two IDE hard drives


Hi,

You should attach two hard drives on primary ide. Set both jumpers to cable select ( or one on end is master, middle one is slave). The one at the end of the cable is where your o/s should be. You could try putting the third on seconday, along with your dvd rom.

Cannot find primary drive 0 (C:)


Make sure the boot sequence is set to look for the hard drive first and also make sure that the hard drive is set to cable select and is the only hard drive on the IDE cable and is plugged into IDE slot 0 on the motherboard.
