help with k7s5a pro and fat22 formatting of hard drive
i need help! yesterday i went and bought a k7s5a pro mother board. day before that i bought a new cpu duron 1.3.
my hard drive is a 30g western digital.
now for the rest f the story!!!!
bout 2 weeks ago my computer started acting weird when i would turn it on. it would take 5 minutes or better to come on. so weekend afore last i opened the case thinking maybe it was too much dust collected and i cleaned it out. put it all back together and turned it on,,,didnt fix that problem and created another one. it started rebooting itself at random. the time between boots was diffferent. after talking with someone about it i was told it was my mother board and not believing it could be i opened it back up took everything lose again and must have put the hat riser on backwards as i got a little smoke from it.
next day i took mother board n cpu to frys to have ut checked ,,man said i fried cpu.
present,,,installed new mother board, new chip, ven bought a new memory chip sram and another internal fan to add to my case foir the new faster chip.
hooked up my hard drive to mother board and plugged up everything else. for what ever reason when trying to install hard drive it would not recognize itsself. reformattined and repartitioned hard drive,,,,,,,,,,,,,,it went from a 30g fat32 to a unknown fat22 after doing this. now it wont recognize anything. did some research that said plug hard drive into secondary ide port,,,, when we do that it allows us to reformat properly and load windows however if we take that hard drive and put it back in primary ide port it reverts back to unknown with fat22.
anyone got any suggestions?
