I have have 2 seagate ST340014a's 40gb connected to my comp...operative word "had"...i have taken them out and unplugged
them to trouble shoot why they are not recognised in bios etc i have tried changing the jumpers on both, different power cords and changing both drives from differrent spots on the ide cable aswell as changing the IDE cable from IDE 1 to IDE 2 and back again
My problem seems to be when i connect 1 HDD to the cable cable and plug the power cord in it seems to keep rebooting my pc as soon as it comes to bios detecting IDE components which i assume is the one with my operating system on, as the when the second one is connected and the HDD has been changed to master it does not even load up bios...please help as it has been a week now and really need to atleast get some files onto a disk
EDIT: I disabled abled my speaker ( internal) as when i connected one or both of the hard drives and powered them up it was making a clicking noise...also i have read quite a few posts on this subject and tried pretty much everything ..some really good advice is whats needed here thanks
