I suspect it is the motherboard's SATA controller.

have changed it in the bios .by swopping around the boot order for the sata ,scsi,device???? but its worked for now ,anyway thanks again and i have a system error ,duplicate name exists on system ???

If there is an option in the BIOS to turn it off, and you are not using any SATA drives, then there is no reason why you should not.

Yes thats fine.

Are you running it at full speed now? 1.83Ghz It'll be a bit of a difference from the old

All you got to do now is upgrade that one for the wife.;-)
