Re: hdd installation

The capacity that a motherboard can support is designated by the BIOS.... a few years ago when HDDs started to get big, there was an issue in supporting disks above 137GB as this exhausted the old HDD addressing system..(BIOS), to rectify this the BIOS code was re-written to support 48bit LBA (Logical block addresses) so as long as you have up to date BIOS for this motherboard, it should be alright.

you should be able to install any capacity available on IDE as long as you have updated the BIOS to the latest version (check the Giga byte website to download this)

If you wish to upgrade your PC further you can get a SATA/PATA adapter, or you can get a PCI SATA, IDE or SCSI controller card. Effectively there are very few limitations to the number of disks nowadays.

Machine boots gives a startup beep then blue dump which fades to black screeen.

the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.
make sure that your RAM is securely seated
test or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive make sure the connections are secure including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your
((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Hard disk installation

Bummer I couldn't even find that MB on Gigabyte's site, however a more to the point question for you would be: Are you going to use a XP operating system? If yes than down load the drive's Mfg disk software. Usally you can than creat a boot disk to setup your drive. Pay attention to the jumper settings listed on the drive. If its a PATA drive = serial ATA-133/66/33 you will need to set the jumper for a master or slave or master with a slave. If its a SATA and your board supports SATA II you will need to remove the jumper to allow up 3.0gig transfer rates. If your board does not support SATA II than leave the jumper on. If your board does not support SATA I = 1.5gig tranfer rate, than you can not use this in your system.
