Hi,
If the problem was caused just because of the video driver. The following steps should fix the same.
1. Power On
2. At the dell Logo screen tap the F8 key slowly 5 times
3. Select the option Safe mode and hit enter
4. Click Administrator to enter or your user name
5. Left click start
> Right click My computer
>Left click properties
>Left click hardware tab
>left click device manager
> Left click the plus sign next to Display adpaters
> Right click on the display adpater and click unintsall , and restart your computer

If the system is not going to the safe mode , there is more to your problem than just the driver.



Thanks

How do I fix a problem were a tower computer won't see the slave hard drive.


It sounds like both drives are trying to be the master on the cable. Have you tried setting both drives jumpers to the CABLE SELECT setting. This allows the BIOS to individually identify them and you specify in the BIOS which is the primary boot drive.

After trouble with getting video,It now shuts down


Does your BIOS?, or motherboard jumper? have the ability to DISABLE the Onboard Video? If it does, then you must do that, first. Also try pressing F8 at boot time and select VGA Boot. OR simply boot up in Safe Mode, When booted, either way, Remove the/any OLD drivers, add/remove programs, Then, after a reboot, again, using F8, either VGA or Safe Mode, & use the DVD that has the drivers for the card you are using and install the Drivers & Software, I think the NVIDIA card will set up easier. Set the resolution to say 1024 x768 32 bit to start and if you need more higher resolution, go up from there.

Computer does not recognize the monitor. put a video card in and it does not work either is there jumpers on the motherboard that needs to be disabled acer aspire t180


Has it ever recognized this monitor? Are you sure the problem is the video and not the monitor? Do you get anything when you plug it in? Do you see the bios information etc. If so, try the machine in safe mode with simple VGA drivers. Safe mode is F8 when windows is first booting up. If that works then manually reset the resolution, refresh rate, whatever to match the monitor.

I was installing a dvd drive, unhooked main power supply in computer, now when I turn on computer it says it needs a systems reboot disc can you help


The computer can't see the hard drive. IF the hard drive is on the same IDE ribbon as the DVD then you have a jumper problem. You need to look at the old cdrom if there was one and jumper new one the same as old one. (Master, slave or cable select) Also while you were digging around inside your computer did you pull the IDE ribbon to hard drive loose from the drive or the motherboard? Are the power connectors still hooked up? Every hard drive ribbon can have one slave and one master drive. Your hard drive should be the master and the cdrom the slave. Some systems are now set to "cable select" that means that the hard drive ribbon has a master connector and a slave connector and that the device (hard drive or cdrom) becomes a master if connected to one connector or a slave if hooked to the other one. If you go into your bios setup when you turn on the computer you should be able to look an see which of the drives or cdroms is hooked up as master or slave. Some will display this information during bootup posting.

Can I use this Hard Drive as a slave on my PC ?.


Hey,

Ofcourse you can, look at the top of the hard drive to find the jumper settings lable, change the jumper so the drive is slave.

Then connect it to your computer with a ide cable, if you have another hard drive on the same cable the other hard drive needs to be set as master, and be preferably on the end of the cable and slave on the center of the cable.

Then check your bios / cmos / cmos setup / computer setup, right when you turn on the computer to see if the hard drive is detected and properly installed.

heres a video on how to use bios
http://www.wonderhowto.com/how-to/video/how-to-use-bios-69712/

if everything is okay it should show up in windows, if it doesn' then right click on my computer, select manage, then on left side select disk management, you may have to initialize and or partition the disk first before it shows up on my computer.



Thanks and good luck.

2nd internal hard drive



I’m assuming that you have an IDE hard disk drive ribbon cable with 2 connectors on it. One connector is for the primary or master drive. The other is for a secondary or slave drive. Return all jumper settings to cable select (CS) settings. Connect the 500 to the slave connector and power on computer and enter the set up (BIOS) menu by tapping the F2 key. Hold down the <Alt> key and depress the <E> then the <F> keys in succession. This will force the motherboard to load default settings and also force the motherboard to redetect all IDE devices. Note: The selection for the floppy drive will be reset to ON. If you do not have one then you must disable floppy in set up (BIOS) menu.

Re: lg tower xp install


Hi,
the boot device setup in the bios, if you set atapi-cd rom as first boot device. then hdd second. and fdd last.
it appears that you have a faulty connection from the IDE ( 40-80 wire cable ) that runs from the motherboard Primary/secondary slot. check the cable goes from motherboard to hard-drive and is connected firmly, also check the jumper blocks ( small white plastic block ) is set to master or slave on both devices ( cd-hard-drive ) if both on same cable set hard-drive to slave and CD rom to master. if they are both set as master or slave, they will conflict with each other.
if you need further help, please mail back.
