Re: Computer won't boot

By caillou ·
I just read the post "Hard Dr
ive Stops Post" It mentions moving the jumper on the mother board. I believe that might help my problem as well. But I don't know where the jumper is. Can anyone help me find it? I'd like to try it.

hard drive

by clarkd038 In reply to Re: Computer won't boot

Have you unplugged the hard drive from the computer?

If you haven't that is a great way to start is to unplug the hard drive, turn the computer on and then back off, unplug the computer and reinsert the hard drive and see what happens.

There are also jumpers on your hard drive, and I'm guessing that you only have one hard drive installed on the computer so it should be set to master.

Let me know how it goes.

I need a little more information, what kind of PC do you have? All mother boards are different, you/me/anyone would need the model to look up the manual...

**On the back of the drive there are jumpers... I always set everything to CS (Cable Select) makes it easy so I don't have to give it much thought... The only thing I could think of as far as jumpers on the Mombo, that would affect the drive is a jumper that would change the data rate from ATA100 to ATA133 vise versa....

What exactly is happening? cause I doubt changing jumpers on the Motherboard will fix your issue... On the drive, could be your issue...
