well i figure my motherboard is messed up anyways, and pulling the amd thing from the other board wont workc ause it doesnt fit, so heres waht i did
i pulled the motherboard + processor from an older computer (amd k something something) and put it in the newer shell.
i plugged in the graphic card (rage 128 something)
the ethernet thingy (100+....)
and some generic sound card (im guessing)
currently i have
a floppy drive attached, but i dont know if it detects it
2 cd rom drives (neither can be detected) im sure the cable thingy is plugged into the secondary ide thing, and there doesnt seem to be power in the drives either
one hard drive (from the amd computer) which i am currently using right now
This hard drive is set to primary slave, yet it somehow boots upw ith some "intel boot up thing" that i can find the name of later
when i plug in my other hard drives (the original 2 from this shell) it doesnt detect one of them (the former slave) and the master is detected as a slave, and nothing boots up
im wondering whats wrong... can someone help me?
