Question about Mercury KVM266PM-U (KVM266PMUD1600) Motherboard

1 Answer

Is motherboard kaput?

Mercury KVM266PM-U V3.0 motherboard may have suffered when our power supply died in a flash of light. (but no smell) After replacing the power supply and seeing that the computer displays the Mercury bios splash page, I've tried running this motherboard with various combinations of hard disks (that are working) on both secondary and primary IDEs. Whether or not I have anything connected to the secondary IDE and in all combinations possible, I get the following message during bootup: Secondary master disk ATAPI incompatible.
Does this mean the motherboard is kaput?

Open the link below for the Mercury KVM266PM motherboard manual; (You'll need Adobe reader to view the manual, download Adobe for free at: ).
Manual link;
Mercury no longer provides the AC'97 driver for this motherboard on Mercury's web site. Click on this Mercury driver link;
However you can download the AC'97 driver from Realtek.
Click on the next link which will take you to Realtek;

Try installing version A4.06 for, Windows 98Gold/98se/Me/2000/XP/2003(32/64 bits) for Driver only.
Enter your bios & make sure the AC97 is set to AUTO. See page 35 in the manual.
