    I run two hard drives on my desktop with the primary (boot) drive jumper set
    to cable select and the secondary drive set to slave. This configuration
    used to work fine, for years in fact. I ran into some problems with a power
    supply that was overheating and a bad ram stick that was causing the
    computer to crash after a few minutes of running. I replaced the power
    supply and removed the bad 512 mb ram stick (now running 1.5GB ram) and the
    computer now runs fine but only if I don't connect the slave hard drive. If
    I do the bios will detect niether the boot drive or the slave. I tried
    experimenting with different jumper settings but nothing seems to work.

    Any ideas?

    Why - I don't know , but why did you choose as-is ?
    Why not choose jumper setting for
    Master - slave
    cable select - cable select ?
    That's how it should be.

    Yeah, that part's pretty clear. So why are you posting again?

    , but why did you choose as-is ?
    What are you babbling about? You're not making any sense at all. I said
    quite clearly that I experimented with the different jumper setings.

  4. Experimentation is not to be discouraged but did you
    do the "standard" set up as Master + Slave _and_ do "find/autodetect"
    in the BiOS? What about setting the drive parameters *manually* in the
    What effect did that have?
    Have you tried another drive as "Slave", like your old Slave is proven
    still worthy of your setup?

    Don't worry we all stopped reading after your first set of snide
    remarks. Try improving your manners and then try a different newsgroup.

    You don't speak for "all" imbecile. You're about as useful as a broken
    toaster and shouldn't be wasting good bandwidth by posting here. You need to
    keep your mouth shut and your eyes open and you just might learn something
    one of these days.

    Hi Ralph, you're as pathetic as you are stupid. I wonder how your
    unemployment officer would feel about you spending your days cyber-stalking
    people and being a usenet troll.

    Get this through your thick, melon skull and into that tiny brain of

    Hoo Hung Mum, we're not impressed with your gay little tirade here. You've
    made it 100% obvious that you're a frightened little punk coward who mouths
    off only when hiding behind a computer monitor. I'm calling you an IDIOT too
    you stupid little asian homosexual.

    Neil, you're too stupid to comprehend the fact that he said that the
    configuration worked for years before the power supply problem. Can you not
    read or are you just stupid?

    Is there the remotest chance that the faulty PSU fried
    the controller on the secondary drive?
    You'll have to tell me because I'm stupid.

  17. MaaaaaaaaaaaaaTE ! You had to tell the idiot yeh?

    starved for a platform you have to feed an ass-hole like as per
    your new found Host?

    The fact that the wanker cannot read headers so wouldn't know how hard
    the Laughter is coming? You needed to Crow a little??
    Oh, I get it,, you are a Xristian, right..and it was a late Sunday
    Mass for you?
