64 bit driver promise ultra

There is no official Window 7 driver for the Promise Technology Ultra 133 TX2, but you can use the Vista driver. It should also work for both the Ultra 66 and the Ultra 100 cards.
I found the Vista driver at:
The file name is: Ultra133 TX2 windows logo driver.rar
This file is compressed in the rar format. I decompressed it using 7-Zip. Folder amd64 contains the 64 bit driver. The amd64 driver worked even though my mother board has an Intel CPU and chip set.

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

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 they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working

could be a dirty graphics card you might have remove the graphics card and clean the socket

also check your computer ram to make sure they are securely seated and the

hope this helps you

I am guessing, that you have your board laying flat, and the computer is unhooked from all the cables.
first thing is to make sure that all your sockets are clear of dust by blowing high pressure air to the board (dust is a killer of boards).
ok onto the next step turn the computer over to check for lose screws that might have dropped onto the motherboard
ok next is that all of your cards are clean dust free you can take a static free cloth or high pressure air to clean/clear your cards then replace all the cards and memory sticks
if you have a extra power supply that you know is good or a friend has one thats good try hooking that up first.
If your computer fire's up now then you can try your power supply if dosen't work then you have boiled your problem down to your power supply and that it should be replaced

I have a GX 280 and get the mesage ultra 100 is not installed. I do have a promise card installed. I cannot get to bios

ultra ata 100.. ide cable .. may be bad.. or the controller on the motherboard is causing the issue

try to pull the ide cable off the board.. do ya see the bios then???

if so first replace with a different 80pin ide cable.. or buy a new one..

test the drives attached to the ide ribbon gray cable in another chassis... if the all is good.. and you still can not reach the bios..

use the clear cmos or bios directions on the gx280 manual online at dell

else the motheboard has gone bad

1) Flash the BIOS to the latest one. It's here.

2) Use this driver which is the newest one. Here.

This should fix your issue.

Mobo reads less ram than windows

possible that you have incompatible mem installed, the archictecture of the mem could be 32mb x 64bit could mean that the "BIOS" may only be able to see 32Mb x 8 which to me suggests that this is not the correct mem for this Motherboard, is this mem recovered from another system or an old board. Try and use their memory configurator to find the correct mem for your motherboard (enter the MB manuf and model)
