I went to sandy and downloaded the scan program. It showed my board temp at 116 degrees. It also showed my hard drives are not supported by the CPU. It also states my BIOS is not configured right. I don't know how to check all this and set it right. I did copy the results to word if somebody needs to see what it says. I am afraid to go into BIOS without knowing exactly what I am doing. Can anybody advise?

We can give you better advice if you tell us the make and model of your computer, mainboard, hard drive(s) and CPU.

Hello The Yoda

Do you want me to send you the info I got from Sandy or just the system info itself? I have the scan saved in word. I don't know if I can place that here. Where do I find the info you requested?

HDD information can be obtained at

Start/Run/type "msinfo32" (without the quotations)/OK.

The System Information window will open. Open COMPONENTS, open STORAGE, click on DISKS.

The HDD information will be located in the right pane.

Well that sure did not look like information from msinfo32. I do not know where it came from but WOW!

From what I read your operating system is not recognizing the hard drive(s) and getting the computer to do this is going to require a lot of manual labor in the fact that the computer is going to have to be partially dis-assembled and put back together again. This is something that I do not wish to get into because explaining this to someone can be disastrous if not done properly and I just can not bring myself to do this.

Your computer is going to have to have the drive selects set correctly and possibly have new IDE cables for it and these cables are called 80-wire cables and have to be installed a certain way. My suggestion is to take your computer to a repair technician and have the appropriate steps be taken there. It will be faster and the work will be done correctly.

Hello ThorXP

I just picked parts of what sandy scan gave me. The info I got from msinfo was going to take a lot of space so I tried to compact it. I added a second drive to give me more memory space. That is probably where I messed up. I have a new cable. I just haven't installed it because I didn't know if I had even installed the drive right.Description Disk drive

Here is the msinfo but I think by what you said it doesn't matter much now. The computer runs good downloads good most of the time. I didn't realize I had this many problems. Thanks for your input.

It seems you only have a 40GB hard drive and 20GB harddrive. To save a lot of trouble I suggest getting a single bigger harddrive, maybe 100GB or what would suit your needs. If you can't afford 100GB, even 80 would suffice. If you want to do this I'll run you through it, if not I won't. :thumbsup:

Whatever you want, it's up to you, that's just my suggestion. If you want to go that way, I'll help you through and show you some great deals on where to buy it.

EDIT: And also, why are your Harddrives partitoined like that? (4GB and 33GB; 2GB and 16GB)

Hello YODA,

When I added the other hard drive I didn't know what I was doing. I still don't really. I have just recently got into computers. I have no one around to talk to about it. I have an account with dell. I was thinking about getting a new hard drive and a sound card. I have a lot of music and pics. The reason I haven't yet is I didn't know how I was going to get the info off the first two drives and onto the new one. I was thinking a 100 GB drive should be enough. I figured that was why it was looking funny on the drives. I didn't install right. Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreceiated. I also have 512 MB of DDR RAM and only two slots. I was thinking of stepping up to the 1 GB Max. What do you think?

Compaq Presario SR1103WM,Seagate STA340015A 40GB and ?WDCWDBB-60CVBO 20GB drives, Realtek AC97 Audio,Video Intel 845G, Intel Celeron 2.53 Ghz CPU, Windows XP sp2, Reaktek NIC Card RTL81101L, CD-R RW/DVD ROM 52X32X52 DELL.

When you boot up the computer, go to System Setup and set BIOS to system defaults.
