Hard Drive prob
Posted on 1998-10-26
This is whats up.
twice in the last to weeks the secondary master HD on my kids computer has gone down .while the kids were playing there
kids programs there has been an error message and before I could see it they hit ok .after this win95B will not access
this hard drive .(but it will access the cd-rom on the same
HD controller)After shutdown and restarting the bios was
still set to see this drive(standard cmos setup)But when I
try to autodetect it the bios does not see it.After exiting the cmos with the HD still setup in the bios it does not see
it still (secondary master Hard drive fail)so I unplug it
open it up to check the conections they where fine (both times ,and after the first I replaced the ribbin)Now this is the weird part on restarting the computer it's fine the
bios sees the drive No errors,No conflicts and win95b reads
it fine .upon scandisk nothing No errors.like this Never
happened .But it did twice and when I say the cmos did not see HD I mean it did not see the HD .
seagate 2.5 gig part D,E ,win95b ,award bios,amd k-6 200mhz
Now Any Ideas on what this is are most welcome please.:~)
