Question about Compaq 39-pin IDE Hard Drive Cable (108950010) Drive Case
I have a PC with a 300GB sata, and a 200GB sata. When starting the computer the memory shows up but not the hard dirves. Other times the hard drives work either one or both, and then at times during the use of the computer it will freeze up. I then restart the computer and it wont read the hard drives yet again. I have guted out the PC and rewired all the hard drives etc. Still no hard drives. I know the hard drives are good. I am not sure what the problem is. I want to say maybe the power suplly isnt putting out enough, but not entirely sure. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.
The problem which i feel is
1 not enough wattage of power supply required wattage is 500w
2 PUT ONE DRIVE ON SATA 1 AND run the comp
3 then remove this hd and put another one and run comp
see if it detects as drive both times
choose sata 3 and sata 1 for both the drives, one sata 1 and other sata 3
since both would be master this time your problem may be rectified
if both the drives have same firm ware , the drives will report this error permenantly .
last try can be done to remove pcb of the drive and clean the contact surfaces of firm ware and motor supply area. this will solve your problem too. you may notice some dry burned surface on the firmware contact areas.
