Thanks to some of you guys I had some luck troubleshooting what I
thought was a power supply problem which turned out to be what I thought
was an IDE cable problem.
Still, a strange issue continues - symptoms below;
1. If I don't connect any IDE cables or floppy drive cable, PC powers on
fine, all drives have power and HDD spins up.
2. If I connect floppy drive, as above - all works.
3. Any other device connected to the primary or secondary IDE via a
cable stops responding. CDRW doesn't eject, DVD rom doesn't eject, HDD
doesn't spin up.
I've replaced cables, no effect. Any suggestions?
Re: Bootup problem - connecting IDE cable causes fault
May i please know PC model, dell or something else?
motherboard model ?
actually i did not get you !
how are you connecting your HDD then with SATA if not IDE?
How did you find the problem at the first point? was it use to work
Can be IDE Controller is faulty.
