well this is the situation, i bought a new hdd a 250gb WD Caviar to go with my 200gb Maxtor and my 120gb WD caviar, i even bought new airflow ide cables to go with my new hard drive. The problem starts when i turn on my computer, i have it set up so that my 120gb is my primary master drive with my maxtor as the primary slave, then my pioneer 109 as my secondary master and the new 250gb as the secondary slave. Everything would be fine but it wont recognise the 120gb which has my operating system on it so it wont boot to windows. all drives work perfectly when not all connected together, say i take out the 200gb then all drives work fine or i take out the dvdr then all work fine. i think it may be my motherboard that needs flashed but i dont have a floppy drive much less a floppy disk to flash it with, hopefully you tech heads in hardware world can come to my rescue as i refuse to use my pc until it works as i want it to.
p.s. on my laptop just now.
p.s.s. my motherboard is a KOB KT266a FDSX
p.s.s.s. i also want to flash my mobo so it will recognise the new gig of ram i bought rather than just the 512 it recognises at the moment.
