Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Windows XP SP2, Intel DG965WH mobo. Two SATA hard drives, two EIDE hard drives (WD200EB). Suddenly one day, without warning, the two EIDE drives just disappeared from the Hard Disk Drive list and files on the drives could not be accessed. In addition, XP will not reboot with the EIDE drives in the system but the system seems to work fine when the EIDE drives are removed. The EIDE drives work fine in another system, running Win 2K.

The problem sounds like you either lost the IDE channels on the MOBO or the chipset was updated with corrupt files.

run everest home and see if there are current updates for the northbridge chipset. if you have 2 ide channels on the board switch the primary and secondary ribbons and see if the hard drives are there. if your cdrom's are ide and after switching ribbon cables they disappear and the hard drives reappear your mobo lost an ide channel, you would need to replace the board.

SATA 2


Yes!
The good thing about SATA, is that once you plug into a SATA header on a motherboard, BIOS will recognize that device.

IDE Ports not working on ASUS P5LD2-VM Mobo


Good Day sir, hi, Have you tried to enable the IDE on BIOS setup. If the Bios setup did not solve the IDE problem, check the IDE port of the HARD drive, check if there are bent pins.
If still wont work, you can buy a PCI to IDE/SATA card, this is an expansion card in PCI format with IDE and SATA port.We use this card incase the IDE or SATA on the motherboard gets bad. Connect it on the available PCI slot. Then connect the IDE cable of the Hard disk to this card. Thats it.

Controller Driver Issue on Armada M700


I am running a Armada M700 with a Hitachi HTS541060G9AT00 60GB Hard Drive - Ultra ATA-100, 5400 RPM, 8MB. The driver that is loaded in mine is on both primary and secondary is atapi.sys. This driver is also installed on the Intel 82371AB/EB PCI Bus Master IDE Controller, along with intelide.sys. The main difference is I am running Window XP Pro SP2. But I believe that they should use the same driver.
Hope this helps.

Non detection of hard disk in dell laptop while installation of win xp sp2


I haven't heard of not being able to delete a partition before. You could go to the manufacturer of the hard drives website and find the software to do a low level format or you could download a linux distribution and use the installer to remove the ESIA partition.

I would need to know the model of hard drive and laptop if you need any further assistance.

SATA won't work


I think you're saying you've got XP installed, but the second drive isn't showing up.
You need to format the drive.
Right-click My Computer/Manage/Disk Management.
The drive should show as unallocated. Right click and select format. It may ask you to create a partition first.
