    not going into windows!

    hey guys! My pic was working normally and now when I turn it on stops saying:

    Detecting primary master : the name
    Detecting Primary slave: the name
    Detecting Secondary Master: the name
    Detecting secondary slave: the name

    And it does go to windows, if I put the booting disk it stops in the same place and it doesn't read the disk in the start. When I click F1 for the computer setup everything looks normal and I click use default and save and restart and the same happens.

    The name means the driver he founds. (Cd-R, DVD, etc..)

    Any suggestions?
    I need help!

    if i understand what the problem is then
    take the case of your computer and check all the wiring going to your hard disks, make sure they all have the data cable and power cable connected to them and also check that the data cable is connected to your motherboard.

    Is your computer very old?... like how many years have you had it?

    But anyway... you might have to go into your bios (you know, press 'del' to enter setup) then select auto detect IDE drives... if you haven't touched anything they should install no probs, just keep pressing enter to confirm.

    And check that the 'boot sequence' in the general setup area or somthing like that, is set to a,c,CDROM or somthing starting with a...

    Did you mess with anything to make this happen? Like install some new hardware/flash the bios/ accidentally sit on the computer?

    There's all kinds of stuff you could do, if none of the above advice helps...

    Maybe your harddrive just puked.

    You may have to pick up a new one. Check and make sure that your harddrive c is on the list to boot.
