Connect your SATA on the first SATA slot to make it as the Master. Or maybe the BIOS settings is set only to recognize IDE device. If this is the case, try going to BIOS settings then Peripheral Devices, look for the menu Hard Drive and replace the IDE into SATA.
try vsing another video card, or check in the bios if it will post and see if the onboard video is disabled. if it won't post you either have a bad or mismatched(processor to motherboard) motherboard, processor or video card.
Try changing the SATA controller to run as IDE. I can not advise anthing other because you have not listed the model of the gigabyte board, therefor I can't download the manual to advise the correct setting.
Is your board an ABIT? If so then here is the link to select your motherboard and download the latest BIOS. Make sure to read the web sites instructions on how to update your BIOS. Let me know if you still have issues.
Hi, this problem sounds to me like you have a drive failure, it could be that the active partition is corrupted, if so you need to run a bootable repair program. you can purchase repair disks on ebay [in computers & IT software] for about $6.00. At that cost it is worth a try. The other options are run the XP repair console from the second prompt and see if that will do the trick, last option and only in desperation = replace the drive.
