All but have my new/old rig back up and running. Just got everything all set up after replacing a few things I didnt think I needed to replace.
Anyways, I am getting all the way to the memory check. I get the "energy star" logo, the press "del" to enter set up, etc. But I dont get any further. I get the hd led going, but no actual boot. And it wont allow set up either.
Everything seems perfect except I cant actually get the HD to take the next step. I think its the jumpers.
I went to the IBM site (forwarded to Hitachi) and still cant seem to figure it out. I also cant seem to find my exact model. The HD does have a jumper setting sticker on the back, but me and my rookie mind still dont get it.
Coorect me if I am wrong here:
#1 IDE cable into IDE1 on my mobo
#2 Grey plug (end one) into my CD drive
#3 Black plug (middle) into my HD
Before I try another 1000 jumper combinations, do I at least have the cables right?
Only one HD and cd rom.
Gigabyte mobo, k7 triton
1 gig ram
gforce 4200 ti 128 vid
crative 512 sound
ibm 80 gig, 7200 hd, ata
windows xp pro
Thanks guys! HELP THIS NEWB!!
