I have just bought a new 80Gb ide hard drive to go in my computer at work as the old one was getting full (only 9Gb!). Iv put the hard drive in and connected it all up and its not working. The pc can detect its there but when I try installing it I get the message 'This device is disabled because the BIOS for the device did not give it an IRQ..'. The pc is running Windows 98 se and its a dell computer with a pentium III processor. The motherboard is a Precision Workstation 410MT and I have updated the BIOS to the latest version and enabled IDE hard drives in the BIOS.
Any help is very welcome on this matter as I am now at a complete loss.
Thanks in advance for your help.
P.s. I only want the 80Gb hard drive as a slave for new programs etc. I want to keep the 9Gb as it is, running windows.
