I just put together my new comp.
Pentium prescott LGA775 3 ghz
Samsung 160 gig sata
I have a couple of questions and i hope i can ask them all here. First is instead of buying a new HDD, I took my old one that already has windows on it. It is a SATA. What should i do? Should i reformat everything? how should i go about this? it seems my MOBO didnt come with a SATA RAID Floppy disk thingy. Also,when i go into the bios and change the boot sequence to cd-rom, it does not boot from the cd. Could this be because i plugged it into the wrong IDE plug? the is 3 IDE plugs, one blue and two red.
Second is when i started up my comp for the first time with my old SATA HDD in it, it said that there was an error with my CPU fan. Than it tells me to press F1. When i press this, it brings me into my BIOS. What should i do?
I have another question = P
My case comes with the thermometer thing. should i put it between the Cpu and fan? because i put it there and my case does not show the temperature or anything. Maybe its the thermometer thing i put between the cpu and fan?
