Ive just fitted a new processor and mainboard. It will not detect the Hdd (set to master and in slot IDE1) It also will not see CD (IDE2)however it does see the floppy and the startup disk works.But I cant fdisk or anything as there is apparantly no Hdd.Ive tried another Hdd but the same problem occurs,Both hdds(20 gbs) work in another computer. Ive had a play in bios but to no avail, any ideas? AMIBIOS PCCHIPS BOARD 1200 DURON 128mbs Ram etc
A thing to watch out for with Pc chips boards is The manual's not accurate , Indicating the Number 1 pin as one place when on the motherboard itself its opposite end to that.. So look hard at the legend on the mother board to see if its correct ..And only add the Hard drive .see if its detected .If successful, then try adding the Cdr drive.keeping them on seperate IDE channels.
