Part of a System
I had old pentium 2 sitting around my apt. The computer worked fine before i decided to throw in a extra wireless card i had and bigger hard drive. I also unpluged the wire to the diskdrive and put it back. When i trun this thing on i get two errors.

1782-Disk Controller Failure.

Few things:

1) Have you checked both ends of the cable to make sure they are seated properly?
2) Did you check the power cable? It may have come loose.
3) Did you remove the power cable and forget to plug it back in? (I've done this before)
