286 SDRAM
Gigabyte Motherboard build in Soundcard
Althon XP 1.1GHZ
TNT2 Video card
Primary Master -- 10GB Harddisk
Primary Slave -- CDRW
Secondary Master --20GB Harddisk
Secondary Slave -- DVD ROM

Here is the problem:
When I start computer, It wont detect my CDRW ( Primary Slave). It actually work before.

So far I had tested:
1. unlug IDE Cable , power on Cdrw on
Outcome
Run prefect
2.unlug power, IDE Cable On
Outcome
Run Prefect
3.Change /Update BIOS
Outcome
someting happen wont detect CDRW
4.Auto detect on Primary Slave ( power on and IDE cable in)
Outcome
sometimes it work! if lucky, now doesnt work anymore
after POST, it show
"" Pri Master HDD ERROR
RUN SETUP
Press F1 o Resume
Press F2 o Run Setup ""

note: Last time it happen before, I changed IDE cable (New one), first doesnt work, so change the cable with secondary ,and then change it back. It work great, not until pass few days.

Can someone tell me what wrong with my comupter???

I would recommend putting both hard drives on the same cable and both your cd drives on the same cable...

just make sure you set the jumper settings so that your devices are set by the jumpers on their backs...

another thing that might be a problem is one cable 1... your hdd might have a problem... but try the jumper settings first and go from there

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
