I just got my system set up today.
It is a Atholon xp 1800
with a Giga-byte GA-7vrxp mother board
and Dual Western Digital 30 gig Hd's
Okay first thing.
Got it all Set up. Installed windows Xp everything worked great.
Next. I rebooted. ANd got a windows Blue Screen
Memory Dump Error Rebooted agian. Windows loaded and then Blue Screen agian, Same thing.
I shut down the computer
And check the Jumper settings on the HD's Both are set to Slave. I have them Running on the Raid COntroller. NOT RAID though. just ATA
so i changed the Jumpers to Master "which they Should Be At"
Boot up computer. and It just stays in POST and doesnt do anything. Says Atholon xp 1800 System Health Ok. But nothing else
Switched HD's Back to Both slave. Still NOthing.
I have no clue what choul have happend.
THe mother board works. Its just it wont let me get into bios OR even Boot to a CD rom or Floppy.
I tried pulling the batt. To erase C mos but that didnt work?
OR does anyone know how to Erase The c mos in a GIga byte mother board?
ANy sugestions?

shouldn't 1 hard drive be set to master and the other hard drive set to slave as well as cd roms?? don't really know but figured I'd throw out that suggestion.

Good luck

You must put one HD as Master and the other one as Slave if they are on the same IDE buss.
