Hello again!! Right where do i start....basically i had a toshiba 160gb sata hard drive die on me, so i bought a maxtor diamond 10 160gb sata for a replacement. Hd arrived, i put in machine and the bios found it, in motherboard management said no hd found?(for partition etc) Tried booting off my xp cd but said nothing found in drive.....Then i tried updating the bios thinkin this could solve my problem, must have flashed wrong bios and now nothing on screen!!!

Old bios - pheonix award v6.00pg (4BQW1P04?)
New bios - 4BQW1P19
Mobo - foxconn/nvidia ck804kma
Chip - amd athon 64 3500 2.2
hd - maxtor diamond 10 160gb

Am now thinkin new mobo or possibly a new bios chip? Sometimes there are jumpers you can move to bring back old bios??

Any help would be much appreciated....

Regards Jason

If its a brand new SATA drive you need to load the drivers with a flopy then install windows. After a quick Google search I found this Tutorial.

Do you mean that when you boot, the computer doesn't even post? That could mean a new motherboard for you at its worst.
