I bought a Sony NEC Optiarc AD-7200A last week, so I stick it in to find that the computer freezes on the boot screen ( it hangs where it says detecting IDE drives).
Now I’ve ruled out the PSU not providing enough juice as the computer boots up and the drive works without the IDE cable plugged in, I’ve also tried plugging in the IDE cable into the drive while in Windows which becomes pretty much unresponsive and eventually a BSOD occurs with a short message “internal error” or something. I’ve also tried updating the motherboard BIOS but the latest version for it was out in 2003. I haven’t tried using a differant cable though but my old drive worked fine until I swapped it out.
Anyway, heres the specs:
Athlon XP 2400+
768Mb DDR RAM
