Post Posted: March 19th, 2007, 11:42 pm

Hey guys, Just found out the problem is occuring because the motherboard isn't detecting the SATA harddrive all the time. When it doesn't detect it, it doesn't load windows giving the "Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk problem" message. Works fine when BIOS detects it. Anyone know why ...

So I got this problem (error message: DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK upon booting up, before windows logo screen) all of a sudden one day. Figured there wasn't anything important on my computer so I gave it a format and fresh installation of windows. A couple of days later, it was all good. T...

cheers, thanks for the reply. although i just found out the problem. had to goto device manager and under sata controller > properties, the secondary channel was somehow set to PIO mode when it should've been in UDMA mode. Set it back to UDMA and it's all good now. Both drives running at same spe...

I've got 2 Western Digital SATA 200GB hard drives on my computer. When I used to rip DVD's (using DVD decrypter), no matter which harddrive I saved my ISO to, the speed (read rate) would be the same. Nowadays, the 2nd hard drive (on Sata channel 2) is transferring slower. Read rates are only half or...

Hey guys, Just wondering why I need to turn my computer on twice, sometimes three times for it to boot up successfully? When I turn it on the first time, nothing comes on screen and I don't hear the single beep (successful boot). So I switch off the PC (hold the power button for 3 seconds), then swi...

Yeh it does have SP2.

It is because I have to format the harddrive for it to appear in 'My Computer?'

Post Posted: March 25th, 2006, 7:21 am

Btw, it does come up in Device Manager in control panel. I guess Windows recognizes it but it doesn't show up in My computer.

Hey guys, I've just installed a 320gig HD as a secondary drive to store my movies. It's a SATA and everything is recognized in BIOS. My first Hard-drive is a 160gig WD SATA. When i first started up windows, it said found new WD3200*** Hardware... and that was it. When I go into 'My Computer', It isn...

maybe you need to install drivers for that usb device of yours.

Post Posted: December 12th, 2005, 6:42 am

Post Posted: December 11th, 2005, 6:53 am

ohh ok.. i'll give that a try. but isn't removing the battery the same thing as clearing cmos?

Post Posted: December 10th, 2005, 8:29 pm

I know how to remove the CPU... thanks anyways.

I've already cleared the cmos. (read first post).

Post Posted: December 10th, 2005, 6:13 am

I don't know if the bios recognizes the HD,CPU or RAM. I mean nothing comes on the screen, how can i tell? :(

Removing the cpu... hmmmm are you sure? I don't think it's come loose or anything because those things are clamped down so tight.

Post Posted: December 9th, 2005, 4:13 am

its an AGP 4x card.

I've already tried replacing it with another AGP card but still the same problem. I've also tried using an old PCI graphic card as well but it still doesnt work.

Hi guys, My motherboard is a Asus P4S333/C. Theres a serious problem with this computer i have. When i switch it on, i can hear the fans running, dvd drives work (ejecting works), everything seems fine. But nothing comes on the screen. I know for certain it's not the monitor or monitor cable because...

or you could download zone alarm (the free version) and that also stops those pop ups as zone alarm blocks those certain ports.

Post Posted: January 4th, 2005, 7:22 pm

Only your computer would be affected... that's what i would think anyway since each computer would have a seperate installation of an operating system and i.e.

It would be traceable... an admin can easily find out which user made the installation.

Uninstall Messenger Plus! and it should be fine. Make sure when you install Messenger Plus!, be sure to select "don't install program with sponsors" or something along those lines...

if that fails, you can try this...

I think nero isn't burning ur cd's because u didn't check the 'Write' box in the 'burn' tab section. Play around with the settings, it's got to be there somewhere. Otherwise upgrade to the latest version of nero. Does it matter if Nero recognizes whether the media is + or - ? Does nero burn ur dvd's?

Yeh, some of the games don't work...some do. I think it depends on the person that ur trying to play with...because sometimes when i choose to play a certain person, it says game not available. But when i try it with someone else, it does work. Weird huh? Oh well, it's only a public preview...not a ...

Just before, i wanted to reinstall Ulead Video 6...So i went into Control Panel and Chose to uninstall it from the Add/Remove Program thingy. Funny thing was the install shield didn't actually remove it. It jumped from 0% to 100% in seconds and it told me uninstallation was successful. I went to che...

MSN 6 is great... there is a beta version and a public preview. The beta is leaked, and when Microsoft found out about it.. they put a stop to the program being used and released a public preview. I actually reccomend updating to it. It's quite different...add's more of a virtualality to it which di...

Just a quick question about preloaders... I usually make preloaders for my flash movies since they take quite a while for 56kers to dl. Now the problem is, sometimes the preloaders work and sometimes they don't! And i really don't know why. When they don't work, it's jsut a blank white screen that t...

Hello, I've installed Windows 2003 eval copy like yours a few days ago... and have found it quite good. With ICQ, I had ICQ lite installed...after i experienced the same problem as you. So you could try dling ICQ lite and try that instead of the normal ICQ. I didn't have Firewall protection on thoug...
