  1. Hi there.
    Here's my problem.
    I currently have a Western Digital Caviar WD80 0JD-75JNA0 and it works fine. I wanted to add a drive so I bought the Western Digital WD2500KSRTL and installed it. When I boot the computer, it freezes at the screen where is show "Windows" with the load bar at the bottom and then resets.
    I dont have jumpers in either.
    Anyone know what I'm dealing with?

    Ordinary problem with sata disks

    I have that problemt my self. My friends computer wouldnt start the OS (windows xp pro) I fixxed the problem simply by starting it in SAFE mode. Also check your bios settings.

    Yes, but when you started it in safe mode, what then? Of course I don't want to start it in safe mode every time. Did it work fine after you installed its software or something?
