have reformatted with xp windows disk & with windows Me but still it can not see the drive the following is then shown 0x000000050 (0FX87C04AB) )X00000000,0XF87C04AB, 0X00000000 this is on a blue screen Please help if you have meet this problem or the tower may just fly though the glass
The reason I asked the make of the drive is, if you go to the manufacturers website you can download tools which boot from a floppy and can check the hard drive for errors as well as formatting the drive to Fat 32 or NTFS. Maxtor use Maxblast for example.
that looks like a memory problem, if you have more than one stick memory remove all except one and retry, you may need to try the ones you take out. Also make sure they go in the lowest slot number 0 or 1
The drive is Maxtor & I have run the Instalation software for thisI have formatted Drive on NTFS & FAT32 the former attepting XP & Me on Fat 32 & in both cases after formating using the windows disks the report is that it can not find the drive the drive has been replaced with the maxtor as I thought the other drive wS FAULTY I have used windows Me start up disk to ustart from scatch in both types of windows The mother board is Gigabite running 2400 Athlon processor I have installed the dir files from floppy it runs with CD support in both cases & after loading windows files it reports that the drive is not available
