|First of all I would like to start by saying I have read most if not all of the previous topics regarding HDD L.E.D always on but non of them have help me :( btw I built this machine 2 years ago so it has been working fine up until when I decided to format it on 25/05/09. I have also formatted this machine several time before.|
I recently re-formatted by build of machine with DELL Windows SP3. After full install the HDD L.E.D is constantly on even in dos mode.
Here are my tests:
I have reset CMOS, no avail.
Plugged only 1 of 6 HDD being the original OS one alone, also without DVD-RW drive, no avail.
Used different SATA cables & another port on mobo, no avail.
Ran low-level format on OS HDD, no avail.
Tested HDD for errors or bad sectors = NONE
Checked to see if cable was plugged onto mobo incorrectly. -/+ Plugged in correctly
I am not sure what else to do apart from bios update. Cannot think of what would actually cause a problem like this??
If you can please take a few minutes in help it would be much appreciated :)
