I need some ExPeRtIsE advise here. I was experimenting with somethings. .. and well I switched Hard Drives from my new comp to my old....I am no comp pro so mine is a Dell...The specs don't wreally matter for this problem. Well....my dell was only 20gb....and i never knew my old comp had 40gb on the hd. I switched them...I put the 40 into dell....and worked perfectly as for eth old ocmp...i put in the 20gb hd and then as the screen loads...it cannot detect both the Primary and secondary MASTER IDE. .. That is what I am confused abotu...IDE = the long gray Cable wires. .. . i didn't mess them up in any way I don't think. . . Then I tried switchign the hd's back and same problem. . . I konw it is my fault for what i did. .. .as fore i just went back to my old 20gb hd. . . while the 40gb is on old comp. . . I dunno what I was doing. ..I guess the saying Think before you do/say is true...I was thinking and jsut DID things and now it landed me with 1 messed up comp and one SAME comp. So for the pplz who can help me with this problem plz do....I restate....My old computer cannot detect both IDE Master and secondary Master. Then shows screen saying
1. Safe Mode
2. Safe mode with internet
3. Safe mode with ....
4. Mode that is compatible
I tried ALL 5 and the first 3 jsut loads all this partition stuff and Compatible gave me a blank screen whiel Normal gave me a FREEZE screen.. . . The 1-5 are not ACCURATE wording but realted. So plaz help me
