Hi here's hoping someone cn help me......i have 2 hard drives on my pc and the master drive is 6gb and the slave is 40gb. so i changed them around but could'nt figure out how to install windows. Anyway i changed them back to their original bays and reset the jumpers on the master drive. The problem now is when i connect the pc to the mains it switches itself on but does'nt boot up or show anything on the moniter. Usually it switches on and waits for me to press the switch to boot up but now it switches on as soon as i plug the mains in. Has anyone any ideas as to whats happening here? as i need to get this up and running as it's promised to someone else ( i've just treated myself to a new pc ).
Please help if you can and thanks for any advice guys...ROZ
Have you checked to see if all the components are seated correctly? also, try booting with just the 6GB hard drive on its own, also check the label on the front of the drive, it should have a diagram on how the jumpers should be set.
When you boot the pc, can you enter the BIOS? there could be conflicting settings.
As far as i know i've reinstalled the hard drives exactly as they were and no i can't get into the BIOS there's nothing comes up onthe moniter and the tower turns on as soon as i plug the mains in. Could i have placed the jumpers wrongly?? would this account for it? thanks for getting back to me so quickly by the way, any help is greatly appreciated...ROZ
