I am in a stupid situation ..;-(
I have MB-ASUS A7N8X , CPU- 2400+ Athlon
Graphic card Radeon 9600 pro recently installed
256 RAM 3200
HD-WD 120GB,7200,100ata,8MB cashe
new HD-Maxtor plus8 40GB 7200,133ata
Windows XP pro
I have my windows installed on WD and made my
new HD as a primary partition and used it as a
slave drive for a couple of days.Decided to try
it with Maxtor as a master and windows to start from there...(looking for faster start and work) WD as a slave.
Bios recognised the HD properly - I have set
up jumpers properly , but when loading windows said something like TRND is missing.. I already
thought that there is need maybe to install win
from installation disc to the new HD but thought this could maybe primary partition will be the same ...obviously it's not ...ha-ha ;-(
Computer was restarting .. going to the same thing , I couldn't turn off , on the next restart I change BIOS with
the old settings of WD-master and Maxtor as a
slave drive,turn the elctr off and after a
minute turn it on, but !!! First I didnt saw
front LED for a HD to goes on. After I push the power button it has gone red and there was
no CDRW or HD or A: any sign of going to work.
Monitor was in safe mode. I check later-there
is green light on LED insight for MB power and
All fans are working. Did I fried in some way
the MB or CPU or have maid mistake to save the
old HD configuration before put back the HD's?
What can I do , could I use potentiometer or
other gadget to check MB or CPU, at least to
know what to change....?
By the way , tried already couple of times with clearing CMOS till 14min off
but nothing changes. At a moment I left it with WD ( where Win is installed)
at primary IDE chanel jumpers as a master alone, tried already as master just, without Maxtor HD connected ... but nothing..?
I dont think I have damaged anything....but..? How to understand and what can I do?
I really will apreciate if you could help me , I ahve been 2 months allready without working computer for a stoped working Radeon 9500 64mb( not overclocked)
Thank you :confused:
