Hi. I installed Windows xp Pro. on two drives. Made one the master, the other
the slave. I had trouble geting it to boot up, but eventually did. I was
doing a defrag. of the original drive, the system hung and now it will not
boot up anymore. Tried disconnecting devices, changed power supply, changed
data cables, changed video cards, etc. Tried both drives in another machine
and they do show up in my computer and am able to open them up and look
around on them. Am I missing something as what to do? There is also a small
connector that goes to the mb, for what looks like a sleep mode button. That
is disconnected, and am not sure where it is supposed to be attached. This
button has a picture of a moon on it. I am wondering if this thing went into
sleep mode by this button getting pressed, then the cable became disconected
from the mb.Make sense? Please help. The only number I can see as to the mb
type is: MB-M869C-ATX.Thanks
Sandy

MB-M869C-ATX:
I have this same mobo in an IPC PC that I recently tried to reboot (after ~2 years). It would not run the POST. I tried the usual swap hardware and RAM clean reseat methods that served well in the past. I caught this thread searching for a fix and here is info I can add. I fixed my issue by resetting the BIOS settings.
BIOS settings reset is accomplished by JP4. Reset position is connecting the two pins closest to the JP4 silkscreen on the PCB. Attempt to power up with the shunt in the reset position, then replace it to the normal position and re-(attempt to) power-up.
For the sleep mode switch:
The legend for mobo connections is located between the IDE connectors and the BIOS chip.
The mobo connections are located between the BIOS chip and the edge of the PCB.
My PC was running WinXP Pro SP2 before fine and is now, so I suspect it is not o/s related. I suspect my coin cell battery ran low. In your case perhaps the BIOS cannot accommodate the new drives or types perhaps hd auto-detect scan failed previously, and subsequently is causing BIOS startup fail.
Hope this helps.
