Question about Computers & Internet
ive set atapi-cd rom as first boot device. then hard drive second. but whats fdd? also theres 4 boot device set up points not 3.
if it appears that i have a faulty connection from the IDE ( 40-80 wire cable ) that runs from the motherboard Primary/secondary slot that means cobbildugook to me lol. ive checked the cable that goes from motherboard to hard-drive and theres one connected but theres quite afew wires that aint connected to anything. jumper blocks what/where are they?
as for the small white plastic block i dont know where that is?
FDD Floppy-Disk Drive.
It would be advisable to go to the motherboard Manufacturers site. And download the setup or user manual for this Board.
The White or black plastic jumper blocks i,ve refered to, are on the back of the Actual CD/DVD Rom Drive. Located at 1 end. this should be set to Master or Slave. diagram of settings usually printed on top of the drive. I dont know whether you have an IDE Drive ( 40-80 strand ) wire connecter.
Or sata drive connectors. 1 single red cable from motherboard to drive.
please bear in mind, this site is designated to solve technical solutions.
i,ll help all i can, but if your not technical minded, perhaps this is a job for someone more competant than yourself. no disrepect intended.
regards mike @ compurepair.

Restart you computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the F2 or the Delete key
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the navigate to advanced bios features using the arrows keys press enter change your first boot device toyour hard drive press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
IDE-0 means Pri master
IDE-1 means Pri slave
IDE-2 means Sec master
IDE-3 means Sec slave
or the operating system might not be detecting the hard drive
make sure all power and data leads attached from motherboard to hard drive have secure dust free connections
hope this helps
