Question about Computers & Internet
I installed new hard drive in my computer and then I put in the installation disk that came with it. It started reading the installation disk but then it said: Int 13 level communications attempting Int is IO to drive 80 No Response. Then below that it said: ATA Level Com attempting PM ATA Identify. Then it stopped doing anything.
How is old is your computer and what OS do you have in it? (better to check the specifications or your gear). The Int 13 error actually refers to the limitation of some old BIOS and old OS in handling large drives (like that 320G drive that you have, for details about this error, see http://www.pcguide.com/ref/hdd/bios/sizeGB8-c.html and or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INT_13), this means that your BIOS or OS can't handle it properly, to isolate you can perhaps try updating your current OS or upgrade to a better OS (if possible), if you have another board that you can try better, if not it might help to update your board's BIOS as well though I warn you to exercise extreme caution in doing so if you don't want to fry your board. Hope this helps
Cheers and best regards,

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
