I have an ancient computer, with 133 MHz , and a SCSI CD-ROM and SCSI 2gb harddisk, Recently the harddsik refused to start, I guess the bad sectors have become too many, so i got another an ide one.
I took the scsi-controller out and put the other harddisk in. However, I get the no-system-mesage, when the jumper ist at the most right side, and the harddisk is not detected in the bios, and when i move the jumper to the other 3 possibillities, the computer won't start. :dead:
i used to get the same problem, when i tried to change the scsi cdrom with a normal one.
can anyone help me? how can i fix it and make it work? :confused:
thanks in advance

How big is this hard drive? The BIOS of most of those systems can't handle more than a 6GB hard drive.

Also, are you sure you don't have the cable in backwards? When I accidently did this on my old computer, it wouldn't even POST.

The harddisk is of 4Gb. And the cable is in with the red line on the right hand side. The ventillators are functioning, but no bios starts, i get only a black screen. Only if i switch the jumper on CS, then the computer starts , but no hard disk is regocnised.
i've got another question - supposing i get the hard disk working, can i switch the scsi one as a slave, so that i can get the data from it?
