Question about Computers & Internet
thanks for your reply. ive gone into the bios and boot device priority but it was not on HDD neither is there CD/DVD. all there is, is removable device,
hard drive, intel (r) boot agent ve, disabled and atapi cd-rom which ive tryed but all it says then is - no boot file name recieved, boot failure - system halted, media test failure check cable. any ideas?
the boot device setup in the bios, if you set atapi-cd rom as first boot device. then hdd second. and fdd last.
it appears that you have a faulty connection from the IDE ( 40-80 wire cable ) that runs from the motherboard Primary/secondary slot. check the cable goes from motherboard to hard-drive and is connected firmly, also check the jumper blocks ( small white plastic block ) is set to master or slave on both devices ( cd-hard-drive ) if both on same cable set hard-drive to slave and CD rom to master. if they are both set as master or slave, they will conflict with each other.
if you need further help, please mail back.
