Hi as a few people know who have helped me in the past I delve into old PCs and I may be well out of my depth this time but…. .
The problem is with an old 486 SX the Post Card shows 42 and I get two different tones from the post on boot up, I have found this page which relates to the tones problem with logic board or SCSI. Bus) click here

What and where is the RAID adapter. Any one know of a good graphical 486 board which points to such other components.

Don't get blown away with this model of mobo. You can wind it up from it's stock 25Mhz to an exhilarating 33Mhz.

IDE hard drive

ed-o looking at that photo am I right in thinking i will need a card to pop into PCI or ISA slot for this Hard drive to conect to.

If the motherboard does not have a built in SCSI interface, then yes.

Do you know the make and model of the motherboard?

It’s a Compaq board and there are no SCSI markings on it.
I may be misleading you with the thread I posted, but it posts with the two different tones and I found the following in my postcode book
(Problem with logic board or SCSI Bus.)
As it’s not got SCSI controllers it must be IDE.
I can look what model it is tomorrow and get back to you tomorrow night it will give me time to look it up on the net and post the thread.
Thanks for your help

The board is a GA486AM/S Not sure why I thought it was a Compaq.
