artimeg Posted July 12, 2006 Posted July 12, 2006 Hello, I left work this morning and my system was running fine. When I got home my computer had rebooted and the BIOS info screen was showing. It listed that I had no drives attached by IDE. I have 2 hard drives, 1 CDRW, and 1 DVD writer attached to the system. The 2 hard drives are on 1 IDE cable and the 2 optical drives are on the other. I tried using a PCI IDE controller card that I had laying around on an older system, but it would load up and start searching for devices and was unable to find any drives. I know the cable works because I used it on another system. The system is less than a year old, built October 2005. Please if anyone has any idea what is wrong let me know. My guess is the IDE controller on the board is dead. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
