BTC 3212m Problem
Model No BCE 3212 IM
I am having problems installing the above
System, Packard Bell Club 30, PII 300 Mhz(crix)
128 Ram Mhz 4 X32Mhz 70ns EDO
On Board Video 4Mhz
Sound Card Creative labs
IDE Primary Master 2.4 Ghz
IDE Primary Slave 20Ghz
IDE Secoardary Master 52X CD Rom
OEM Clean Install Win 98 + service pack 1+2 (SE) The system is totally stable no problems,
Initially I wanted to use the new drive as a slave on the secondary IDE channel.
But then because at the time, I didnít have a 3 plug IDE lead the decision was taken to use the drive as the Seconadary Master.
Problem is that Windows wonít load and hangs on boot up only with this drive. I have tried 2 other CD Rom Drives all OK
The drive is detected on first boot and by step by step boot up determins that the system falls
over after the drivers have been loaded and windows starts to load fully.
I have tried the jumper setting in all positions and the problem is still the same.
I have also tried the drive as a primary slave
Boot in safe mode and the drive is not there.
Having tried all of the above I can only assume that the drive is faulty.
I have tried www.BTC.Com No online help for this problem.
It wasn't clear, but are you now using both the CDRW and the CD ROM? Or are you just using the CDRW? If you're using both, then with CDRW's you should have it set as the secondary master not the slave. If so, put it as the master and the CD ROM as the slave and see if that works. Also, seen this be a simple cable problem? Have you tried another ribbon cable?
In standard CMOS setup, make sure that all channels other than the hard drive are set as None (no drive). If the BIOS gets hold of a CDR drive, it may assign it as non-removable. A BIOS update is also a good idea.
