  1. HELP!!

    I am cleaning up an old computer and now when I boot it up, I see a notice that Primary IDE 80 pin cable is not connected.... then get a notice I/O Conflict: 2F8 and the system stops loading.

    Prompt says press F1 to continue.... the load continues on pressing F1 and everything loads and works. C-Drivve, Floppy and CD are all functioning as is my high-speed connection.

    Anyone know what the prompts mean and how to get rid of them?

    Just make sure everything is connected proplery in the computer. If you have more than 1 drive, it could be that it isn't all the way plugged in. Verify that everything is hooked up properly.
