Hi experts,

I just upgraded a desktop to a gigabyte ga-m68m-s2p and for some reason it won't detect IDE devices.  IDE chipset is enabled in bios but nothing comes up.  I don't have a sata drive to test.

The jumper on HD were set CS and I removed the jumper completely.. and still nothing.  The drive works fine on previous board 15 minutes earlier.

How can I troubleshoot this?

Thanks,

HNM

Check the power connector for the hard drive and make sure it is spinning up.

Refer to the jumper diagram or labels on the hard drive to determine how to set your hard drive to master, slave or cable select mode. Removing the jumper entirely is NOT necessarily valid.

Swap out the IDE cable, if possible, and try both connectors on it.
