well, i have an old gateway
600E mhz P3
well anyways, it crapped out on me
Both CD drives have failed (i tried them in my current computer and neither would work)
Also when i hook them up to the old gateway, the bios says that nothing is hooked up...not even the HD
I have tried many settings in the IDE tab and i cannot get the bios to recognize anything. Also the drive is clean formatted so it has no OS, and i can't even install one because it won't recognize it.
Do you think the IDE controller on the mobo went kapoot?
I'm not even sure if its worth it to buy a new mobo ~100$ if thats the case.
It would be nice to just have a kazaa/mp3/aim machine tho.
