Ok guys, need some help. I have a Seagate ide 80g HD. This was in my old Amd 1700+ system. Was working great, then i decided to throw the hd in my AXP 3000+ rig. Also put in a WD 40 giger & put xp on it & was going to use the Seagate for storage.
Now when I put the SG hd in, the computer locks up on the windows boot screen. But when I dont have the power cord hooked up the comp boots fine. This is in an Epox 8rda3+pro mobo, w/ AXP 3000+ Barton, gig ddr 400 & 600 watt ps. Everthing is at stock setting for now.
Now I have messed with the boot opions & what not in the bios, have both hd's set to cable select. Only occasionally it will boot & be fine, other times it lock on the windows screen. Is this a failing hd? SMART in speedfan says its a healthy drive. Im lost on my next move, I need to get the rest of the data off.
Let me know if I need to provide any more information.
