hope someone can help!!
I had a friends comp which kept shutting down so i ordered a new PSU which i fitted and every thing worked great.
UNTIL i tried to update his avg antivirus which started to update then froze half way through and shut down the comp,so i switched it back on after going through the POST it stopped and said install boot disk.
So i looked in the bios and found no hdd was found so i tried to detect it which it didnt,where it said to put in cylinder ect was not highlighted so i couldnt put it in manually.
I have tried 6 different hdds all doing the same thing,i thought the ide controller was gone but i tried a dvd rom in it and it showed up,argghhhhhh been on it 2 days now and have a terrible headache.
any thoughts plz
its a via board and a 40 gig hdd.
