Hard drive problem?
Nov 27, 2011

On turning on the computer today, screen states "Reboot and select proper boot device".

Checked BIOS and it does not see primary IDE device(hard drive), but sees the (IDE) secondary device (CD/DVD).

Put new cable on the hard drive port.

Reboot again, now screen states "Primary master drive ATAPI incompatible."

I took this drive and put it onto another computer and it works.

What is wrong? Any clues? Motherboard gone bad?
