Am I right in thinking you want two drives on a single laptop IDE? (assuming due to the laptop picture displayed with your post). If so, I'd strongly recommend going with a USB external drive instead.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

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 even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Hi there,

THere maybe a problem with the SATA/IDE connection.Check the connection first using another cable or try to another port. If it doesn't work, try the drive on another PC. Check for the power connection cable as well.

Let me know if this works,

I attached a sata hard disk in addition to the existing ide hard disk drive in my pt800ce-a motherboard. But the system cannot detect the said sata hard disk. what should i do?


If your existing system is IDE motherboard your new SATA drive will not work as it will have compatibility issue, also the MB will not support it.

The same goes for RAMs, 2 uncompatible RAMs will make the PC slow down or keep shutting down....

I guess you have used an adaptor to connect a SATA disk/cable to the IDE MB, check that, it may be the issue also.

Regards
pls leave a feedback and reply

Intel 865GSA


Looking at the vendors I buy parts from, all the cards I saw offer both SATA and IDE ports. Here's one as an example. You definitely want SATA capability as most newer drives are only being offered as SATA, so you'll have a wider selection to choose from.

Another possibility: start fresh with a new system board. If the onboard IDE controller isn't working properly, this may be a warning sign that other problems follow. You might be better off spending your money on a new mobo that already supports IDE and SATA.

Hope this helps you make up your mind. Thanks for using Fixya!

How much is the maximum capacity of hard disk in p4vmm2 motherboard


Motherboards do not have hard disks but you can attach hard disks to them. Most motherboards allow you to connect several hard disks of various sizes. Most home computers only have one hard disk.

Open your computer back up look for the hard disk(s).
The capacity of the hard disk is usually on its label.
If not, you can look it up by the manufacturer and model name on Google to determine the capacity.

Depending on the size of the disk, 1 or more GB of the total capacity will be inaccessable because it is used to format the disk. (e.g. Windows might only "see" 28GB of 30GB disk.)

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Primary IDE port does not work. My main hard disk drive and DVD writer drive are connected to the Secondary IDE port. If I move them to the the Primary IDE port, both the drives do not get detected at all....


Good day sir, there are several way to connect an extra IDE if the motherboard is full:
  1. Buy a PCI to IDE/SATA card. Check your local computer dealer if there is available.
  2. Buy an external USB to IDE Hard disk enclosure.
Of course, these are things to buy, but check first the CMOS setup if the Primary IDE is enabled on your PC.
