Hi guys I have just built a new system the ingredients are a s follows 1700+ amd 40 gig 5400 seagate 2 meg graphics 64 meg memory.
The problem i have is the hard drive will not get detected. So i have a tried another one which i know is working but that too will not get recognized. I have even put a different mobo on the power supply and its doing exactly the same thing, which is not detecting hard drive. But when i swapm over to a known good psu it works fine Does anyone know what kind of power is needed for the hard drive. the psu is 350. but it does seem a bit tacky
If the PSU is powering the motherboard okay, but not the HDD -- as seems to be the problem -- could it be that just one power lead or its plug is damaged? The same PSU is presumably powering the floppy drive okay? Have you tried attaching a different PSU power lead to the HDD?
