I do have an old computer. here are the specs:

CPU : Cyrix 6x86MX PR-300 M2 MXX
Mobo: AT TX - PRO w/Vid and Aud. Zapa (I forgot the exact model coz i lost the manual)
Ram: 32 mb sdram 168 pin 3.3 volts
HDD: IDE 4gb :)


I'm trying to upgrade this computer. I installed a 64 mb pc100 mem. For us to install the memory, we need to take the HDD out. I tried it without the 32 mb. it worked. it booted to windows 95 :). I tried adding the 32 mb, thinking that it's compatible (together with the 64 mb)... NO POST. so I took out one memory.. it POSTED but the ide devices now are not detected in BIOS. swapped cables and tried both motherboard IDE ports. took out the cmos battery. CDrom was detected. HDD was left undetected. I was thinking that HDD might be damaged by taking out from the tower... I'm also thinking that BIOS might also be broken because I tried adding the 32 mb memory to the mobo while the 64 mb was installed.

I'm not 100% sure about this... Can anyone help me determine the real cause of this problem?

Thanks in advance! :smooch:
