SATA Hard Drive Not Detected by Motherboard
Posted on 2005-03-02
This is my first experience with a SATA drive
I have an ECS Elite Group KT600 A Motherboard with Sempron 2200 CPU,
1 gig DDR 3200 memory in two 512k sticks.The hard drive is a Western Digital CavierSE SATA WDC2500JD.The OS is Wndows XP Professional.
I've installed the VIA drivers from boot up on A drive,when it says click on F6.The POSTwill show the hard drive as WDC2500,sometimes it won't..When I try to boot normally,it boots correctly until I get to the Windows XP logo screen.It finally starts coming up really dim and gradually brightning to normal and that's where the system hangs up.I certainly hope someone can help.I've tried all I know and now I need some help from somone smarter than me! I'm about ready to trash can this high dollar paper weight.
