I am connecting my 40gb PATA HDD, but my PC doesn't start. There is no problem when i connect my 80gb PATA HDD in same PC. My 40gb HDD had detected once but it gave symbol S@ in the BIOS setup. Can U...


You did not indicate that the 40 Gb hard drive had Windows installed on it and whether it was the original hard disk for this computer.
There is a possibility the 40Gb hard drive is faulty.
Try installing the 40Gb hard drive as a slave drive with the 80Gb drive as the master drive (don't forget to set the jumper on the 40Gb hard drive as Slave. Check the BIOS to see if it detects the 40Gb hard drive, and when the computer boots up, if it can see the 40Gb hard drive and opens the various folders and files, then the hard drive is OK.

I want to change the HD from 40Gb to one with more capacity but I tried to make a ghost image in a 120GB and 160GB HD but the bios don't recognize it and only can see in the screen a simbol _ flashing.


Not sure which software you are using for making the ghost image. Lets say its "Acronis".
First, you will need an USB hard disk drive to store the image on.
Next, run the boot cd and choose backup.
Send it to the hdd.
If it was successful, remove / replace your hdd.
Run the boot cd again but now choose "Restore". Locate your image and then wait.

Hope this helps you. Norton Ghost is a bit different.

Longer Boot time after upgrading the Hard drive


Hi,

first let's determine if the upgrade cause the boot speed.

Disconnect your NEW HDD and/or memory, one by one and see if you get back your fast boot. Then try with your NEW components only !

If you find it works better with new components only, then first connect your OLD HDD only and try.

If you connect both HDDs on one cable, check Jumper settings for both HDDs (Master/Slave).

Also HDD capacity and type is automatically detected by the BIOS and there is no need to put/change those settings manually.

I believe you new RAM is DDR type, too!
As written in the manual for the board, your motherboard has two pairs of memory slots, and you can use one or two modules of DDR memory, OR one or two modules of SDRAM memory, but you can NOT put BOTH DDR and SDRAM memory modules.

regards.

You can solve this by going into the bios setup & changing the boot order. Make the dvd/cd drive 1st in boot line then hdd. This should allow you to boot up from the windows xp disc. Hope this helps & please rate this solution fixya. Thanks.
