Question about Intel D845GVSR Motherboard

1 Answer

Slave master settings

Hi, I have an old computer that is badly infected and want to reset I have the original discs etc but a friend put an extra hard drive in and I think I need to reset it so that my original drive is the master. The documentation on the discs say that i must have the original pieces before I completely restore.  My mother board is a Micro star  MS-6178 10.

One jumper says J26, One other says J3, one other say  J4,  other one says JP1, JP2 but only one jumper there.
So could you please tell me which is the one I need to change or isit best to completely take out the other hard drive? 
Hope you can help, many thanks
Lynn

    I will sort it out as soon as I get back from my few days break. I did get it up and running and found Norton had contained most of the problem but it kept coming up with little boxes telling me of each one and there were hundreds of them! I downloaded AVG let it scan and it found 4 more in the programme of Norton! It is a Trojan and it found some sort of backdoor thing. I am a bit of a novice so you will have to bare with me.



    Plus my restore floppy is corrupt it says and the back up copy I made a few years ago is with the bloke that first did my computer, he has left the area. I will keep plodding on and see what I can do when I get back. Thanks for your help, it is appreciated.

On your original HDD set your jumper to the closest to the IDE ribbon connection and your new HDD set it next to the closest (that will mark your new HDD as a slave). then reset your bios and resume what you were doing.

How do I recover the operating system after replacing a damaged disk?


unfortunately , unless you have the data saved on another hard drive , gig stick etc , it is all lost
you will have to install a new operating system from a cd or download from the net
everything that you view , save on a computer is all on the hard drive initially so when that drive fails --all is lost
there are companies that can remove the disc from a failed hard drive and then recover the data but , the cost has to be considered as it is not cheap

How to remove a virus from your PC's hard drive


Make sure you have an updated antivirus program on an uninfected computer (computer "A") Remove the infected hard drive from the case of the infected computer "B") "Make note of the jumper settings of both drives.(master/slave/cable select) This is so that you can put it back when the virus is gone. Set the infected drive as slave or cable select. And the uninfected \ as Master.Connect drive B to the data cable of drive A then Plug in an extra power cable. After the jumpers are changed.Start Computer A. It then should recognize the B drive and automatically run the antivirus program to clean the drive. When the drive has been cleaned, power down both computers. Return the jumpers of both drives back as they were in the beginning as you noted. Put the drives back in their respectve computers. Start both computers, and the virus is gone now.

Hard drive not found hp pavilion ze5730us


If this machine is running XP, beware. It is no longer supported, and hackers will be looking for these machines to infect. I recommend you get a newer machine. The hard drive may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. You could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a USB Hard Drive Adapter to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive.

If this machine is running XP, or earlier (98, 2000, ME, etc.), beware. It is no longer supported, and hackers will be looking for these machines to infect. I recommend you get a newer machine, or don't try to get on the Internet with this one. The hard drive or some other critical component may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. That way, at least you may not lose your files.

Needs new hard drive. Which hard drives are compatable and can I install a new hard drive and then simply insert the recovery disc to install the original programs and go from there with the upgrades...


According to HP's specifications, your computer came with a 250GB SATA (serial ATA) hard drive. All drives have standard mounting dimensions, so any SATA drive would be compatible. HP has manuals here that give detailed steps on how to change the drive if you need help. It's a very simple process. Then yes, just put in your recovery disc and reload the original software. You'll then need to reinstall updates, any applications you put on, and so on.

Hope this gets you running again soon. Thanks for using Fixya!

8510p, reboot virus. crashed system. no system recovery done or


All versions of windows up and including windows vista are no longer supported.

This creates lots of problems trying to recover or install an older version of windows.


An IT friend as a favor may attempt a recovery but will take older versions of software. Mother boards etc can be swapped out etc and some parts/software available on line.

Most commercial computer repair may not be your least expensive choice.

Suggest finding an older computer used with windows 8 installed. Windows 10 takes a different hardware to get good performance and is usually not compatible to older machines.

The used market is filled with very inexpensive computers. Make sure if you elect to find a previously used it has some warranted!

If files are still intact on the old drive you may be able to install drive as a second slave drive and retrieve.

If you attempt to replace drive and do a fresh XP install (original generic discs) confirm that the (Windows Microsoft) numbers on the label of the lap top are ledge-able. The numbers are the licences required to register the software even if the XP is out of date you will likely be required to on line register with Microsoft.

Hope this helps

Will not load.


my old computer had a problem like this, i think the only way to fix a problem like this would be to reformat your hard drive and reinstall your operating system, which would delete everything on your hard drive...if you do not want to lose the files on your hard drive, you can hook up the hard drive to a different computer as a secondary drive and take the files you need off of it...then put the drive back in the original computer and reformat...after that just put back the files back on the original computer with a flash drive or an external hard drive...
cant think of another way to solve this
