Question about Intel Motherboard
Unable to boot XP - tried the main and spare back up HDD with XP installed.
At boot up displays "IDE 0 no 80 conductor installed"- bios still picks up the HDD type.
Tried HDD on IDE 1 same as above "IDE 1 no 80 conductor installed"- after bios the screen is out of sync displaying random data.
The system only has RAM, HDD, and AGP installed now for testing the fault.
Help - has the motherboard gone faulty, or what?
Check the cables, and if all connection pins are on the drives or on the motherboard. Not all the needed communication routs between the drives and the motherboard are working....
U can also try another IDE slot (if more than 1)
If all checks ok, try a BIOS reset... (but most probably is just the cables ...)
