    My system is an Fic Spectra...and in the cabinet i don't see any speaker. The motherboard don't have and integrated speaker right?

    In my bios i need to DISABLE "Halt on error" option?


  • Stefano Azzi Oct 25, 2006

    No, this system is already assembled. I have installed only CPU, RAM, DVD-ROM and HD.

    I have also disconnected SATA HD and connected only DVD-ROM but i have the problem yet.

    I see screen with list of device IRQ and on bottom the blinking cursor without any other message ("PRESS A KEY TO START FROM CDROM", "NO DEVICE DETECT", ECC..)

If you have put a Windows system disc in your dvd drive, then re boot your pc should find your cd then say press enter, but if it's stopping before you get there, an error has occured. Did you hear 2 beeps(not together) Go back into the bios and go into the 'standard cmos settings' and at the bottom you will see a line saying 'halt on all errors'. Also check that your HD drives are listed as they should be; and not an old drive, if you have changed your drive that is. Dissable this and save settings and try booting again to your dvd drive.

    you should be able to hear beeps from your case speaker.

  • Anonymous Oct 25, 2006

    the speaker is normaly hidden in the front section of your case, you will probably see wires from the board marked speaker, it's nothing to do with sound, it's just a system speaker.

    If you dissable halt on all errors it usually shows on the boot up if there are any hardware faults.

    Is this a system you have built yourself? and this is it's first boot up.

  • Anonymous Oct 25, 2006

    You must have hard drive connected for cd to start loading files, because it will just stop, while it's trying to find hard drive.

    I have a horrible feeling that your motherboard does not support the make of RAM you are installing, or have you used it on this board before?

  • Anonymous Oct 25, 2006

    go back into bios and check date and time in standard settings and normally pressing f10 auto identifies your hard disk(depending on your board), and make sure motherboard has identified your hard disk.

    Make sure cd is in before you next boot

    Listen for beeps, one a memory check, one a settings check

I have sata dvd writer.when i connect it my computer does not boot.does intel D102ggc2 supports sata dvd writer?

You're Intel motherboard does support up to 4 SATA hard disk drives including SATA CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive, reader/writers. This MB also includes two serial ATA IDE ports.
The most likely reason you're system is not booting is because all SATA ports are all seen as Master drives. By connecting the SATA DVD-ROM drive the bios auto configured the SATA ports.
You'll need to enter the bios when you're system boots-up. Press the F2 key on you're keyboard right after hearing a single beep. You will than enter the bios main menu. Listed at the main menu are devices connect to the motherboard. (Instruction on how to move around in the bios is listed at the bottom of the screen). Mainly, the hard disk drive or (drives) and the SATA DVD writer. You'll need to open the Boot tab. Look for boot order. You want the boot order set like so;
First boot device: [Floppy disk] drive; if one is connected.
Second Boot device: [Primary Hard Disk] drive.
(The drive with windows installed on it). (This drive may be ATA IDE or SATA; you did not provide that information).
Third Boot device: [DVD-Rom] drive. Save and exit the bios. The system will auto restart.
You're windows operating system should load correctly after the auto re-start.
The SATA data cable and the SATA power cable should be checked for good connection. It only takes a little bump to make either loose.
Here is the link to Intel for you're motherboard;

Good luck!

HP Pavilion 7955 main HD failed; my data is on second drive (Maxtor ATA/EIDE) - still good. I want to install this as a second drive in Dell Optiplex 620 which has SATA main drive. The only IDE cables are...

Most IDE cables have THREE connectors:
* one to the motherboard
* one to the "primary" device (CD/DVD or disk-drive)
* one to the "secondary" device (disk-drive or CD/DVD)

If your IDE cable only has TWO connectors, buy a cable with THREE connectors, and connect your disk-drive to the third connector.

Problem with sata HDD probably?

check the bios settings first. if you can see your sata hdd and dvd rom drive then you can install it with no problem. or else try to replace the cables of the hdd if the hdd is not showing up in the bios.
also check that the hdd is set to master drive and dvd also set to master as they are on different connections.

New sata LG dvd room,it work correctly,but i can't boot from it

In your bios change the settings for boot order, 

1: DVD Rom
2: n/a
3: n/a

This will force a boot off the only drive available which is the dvd rom. 

Master slave jumper settings on 250gb Maxline Plus II SATA

There are no master/slave settings on SATA drives because each drive has its own cable. The drive order is determined by what SATA port they are plugged into, or by the BIOS configuration.

save the configuration, and shut it down immediatelly
plug the nvidia FX5500 back, and turn your pc on...

it should be working fine now
but if you still have problem, then i'm sorry... couldn't help you any further... :)

System is no boot neither with cd-rom nor hard disk

Hi, Based of your post/description and assuming not hardware problem, you may have to set up the priority boot device in the BIOS to CD. This will tell your mb to look for a boot medium from the cd first. This is normally in the Advance Setup/1st Boot Device. Of course soon as installed, you have to boot from the HD next time. Good luck and kind regards.
