My Seagate 4GB hard drive won’t turn on or budge at all when connected to my ASUS Cusi-FX MoBo. I’ve connected all the power cables, connected the drive properly but it still won’t spin up.
BUT as soon as I take away the cable that connects the MoBo with the hard drive, it turns on. The drive works in all other computers, but not my Cusi-FX board. So it is not the hard drive that is not working.
It is not the hard drive cables, because I have tried about 3 and none of them make any difference.
Everything else works fine, and I have tried numerous different ways to get it to work eg. connecting the drive on Secondary IDE port etc.
I had the drive as a primary slave on another computer and I formatted the drive on that computer. But since I had done that, I threw away the jumper for the drive assuming I wouldn’t need it anymore. So I took a jumper out of a 30GB hard drive that was dead and placed that jumper into my 4GB. Does that matter?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
