Try to connect the box to another pc without installing it - if you get the same result then the box is defective. If the box appears to work correctly there then its driver is either corrupted or incompatible. Uninstall it, run a system and registry cleaner, download the latest version and install it.

Siig sc-sat212-s4, stops boot when connected


While most computers are capable of starting up properly with external drives connected, from time to time the external drive can cause confusion during the startup process. The computer may attempt to boot from the external hard drive rather than the primary internal drive. This causes the computer to fail during startup because the external hard drive does not have the operating system installed on it.

Disconnect the external hard drive from the computer. In order to minimize the risk of damage to or loss of files on the external drive, shut down the computer if possible, or hold down the power button on the computer until the computer turns off and then disconnect the external hard drive. Restart the computer with the drive disconnected. If the computer still does not start up, it is possible that the computer is attempting to boot from the external drive. Reconnect the external drive and restart the computer. Watch the screen as the computer boots up. A prompt will appear indicating which key to press to enter "Setup" or the "BIOS." Press this key when the prompt appears. On many computers the key is either Delete ,F2 or F10. Use the keyboard of the computer to navigate the "Setup menu" that appears. (Advanced Bios Features.) The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:

IDE-0 means Pri master ?
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?


IDE-2 means Sec master ?
IDE-3 means Sec slave ? or using the arrow keys you can load failsafe or optimized defaults this will set the boot order. Highlight the option for "Boot Disk" or "Startup disk" and select the "C:/" or the primary internal hard drive. Press the associated key, labeled so on the bottom of the screen, to save the changes and restart the computer. This will allow the computer to boot from the appropriate drive. Hope it helps.

Sorry for the earlier post:

Well, this sounds a lot like a virus... Usually, viruses ten to wake up when the computer is connected to the internet. The first most basic thing to do is to disconnect the computer from the internet and start scanning viruses. I can guarantee that you will probably find small viruses, but nothing major. Most chances is that you will have to format and install the computer, so I would urge you to save all important information. You can try to insert the original windows CD, if you have it. Insert the disk as soon as you restart and then boot from the disk. The windows installation will ask you if you want to repair the windows installation, and you can choose this option. However, it is most recommended that with such aggressive viruses, as you have, to format the whole computer and install the windows

Computer keeps re-booting while installing any operating system


Were the two power supplies you tried inclusive of the original failed drive or not. In other words did you try a total a 3 power supplies including the one that failed?

If not, please do so. That is, immediately analyze the original known part failure, the power supply or its connection to the board(s) you have tried.

Congratulations for such an exhaustive process of elimination.

MBox 1 Compatibility with new Macbook Pro Unibody and OSX 10.5.6?


unfortunately any pro tools application below version 7.4.2 is not compatible with leopard and I don't think you can use mbox 1 with the universal mac I may be wrong but I wanna say I tried a while back and even garageband wouldn't find it anymore but you can check for sure by going to the applications folder then open the utilities folder in there is an application called "Audio Midi Setup" and you can select the mbox in there if you see it but if not there is no patch or driver that I know of to get it working unless you upgrade pro tools which if you do upgrade I suggest getting mbox 2 and getting LE with it

i'm running os 10.5.6 w/ protools 8.0 and the original mbox. i had the same problem. protools opened and seemed to work except there was no sound from either analog outputs or headphones. this worked for me:

2. unplugged all usb cables except keyboard/mouse
3. restarted computer
4. re-plugged usb cable from computer to mbox
5. opened protools session
6. hit play and now i'm hearing sound and everything seems normal.

Protools mbox2 issue


it doesnt sound like its the mbox more maybe the protools install. But as far as the cable goes can you tell me if you can ping the mbox throught the 1394 connection. If you cant ping it then damage may have been caused to the unit and it may need to be serviced. I fix my own M-box's but in my store it only costs around $50usd to fix almost all problems with a mbox2

PROBLEM KEEPIN MBOX 2 CONNECTION TO MAC LAPTOP


I have the same problem. Usually it will work when I reboot the computer. The trick is once you get the mbox working with the phantom power on, is to not turn off the phantom power during your session; the duration in which you use the mbox at that given time before shutting it down. You can switch the phantom off and it won't shut off, but if you press it back on, it may and for me more than half of the time it does shut off. I have a new problem with my mbox. I can't hear play back, even though I can hear sound from either input. Any suggestions?
