View Full Version : Fails to find hard disk

11-07-2000, 11:29 AM
My friend's computer always stops working when connecting to internet everytime even just for a few minutes. so I help her to format and install all it needed again. But When it finished it can't boot up and says 'can't find primary master drive'. If I switch it off and on again it works, if using reset, it doesn't work. when it happened I used the cmos features to auto detect the hard drive and the result is different. (sometimes it can find out but sometimes fails especailly using reset). I tried surface scan. it has no errors. Now it can work but the 'can't find hard drive' problems happens now and then. could anyone help?
