    I am trying to re-set up my old pc today as I have to send my current back on the warranty and have run into a slight problem

    As far as I am aware i have set up everyting ok, both the cd drive and the hard drive set to master, both on their own independant ide cables and both plugged into my mobo.

    I power it up and it just tells me it can't find any IDE devices, the cd or the hd, yet it can find the floppy device.

    Any one got any ideas please?

    Something to do with "Startup" disk drivers?
    I had similar probs a while back and had to make a startup disk to get the drivers for the HD and cd drive.

    Just a guess

    I said it was a guess.

    Maybe maybe not, try putting the exact wording of the error message in google.

    I have tried that before asking here

    I do like to try and fix it myself first before asking

    Cheers though

    If you can't find the answer there, open the cd drive, then open a tin of spam and squeeze it in, then push cd drive shut and pour tomatoe sauce over the puter and throw it out teh window

    I just asked a mate who knows a bit more about ths than me (no he's not a monkey ) he said "Feck knows, sounds like someones been fiddling with the BIOS"

    Hope you get it sorted

    Thanks for linking me to a google search I have already tried


    Updating the bios didn't help. Bah, this pc worked fine when I last used it
