I wanted to know if my hard disk is sick?
it was working on the secondary ide controller as a master, it is a WD 160 ATA 100(think it is the most famous HD on this forum
last night the computer just turned itself off(at least i think it did), and the red light for the hard disk was on. i switched teh hard drice to the primary ide connector and it worked fine. the primary ide also has the cd as a primary slave.
and i checked the hard drive for jumper settings, it turned out that teh jumper was set for master with slave. and there was no slave on that connector. have not seen it in the previous hard drives i have had. but it had been working before, i wonder why it stopped working on the conenctor today and is still working on the other connector.
