Early day IDE was fun for this. Later you could just use CS. Try CS and if not, we'll have to dive into 40 or 80 conductor cable details, full model numbers.
My bet is you might ask how to get the OS installed but you didn't so that's not on the table yet.
Hi guys. I'm replacing the hard drive in my computer. It's 12 years old and runs constantly. Last week I started getting memory error notifications. I can't remember exactly what the message was, but in the pop-up bubble it was four characters including one $ sign saying memory loss.
I googled it, most articles said failing hard drive.
So with 12years of constant daily use I figured it's on borrowed time anyway. So I got a new bulk grade Seagate 160gb for $13.
The jumper pin set-up is different. My old drive has 9 pins and 2 white jumpers. The new drive only has 8 pins and no jumper. The new drive says Ultra ATA, but not SATA. It has the old IDE ribbon.
Should I put a jumper on the CS pins?
