  1. Hi everyone!

    Everything begun with a restarting while playing The Punisher... then another... I got this as a "normal" restarting... then next day it restarted and i got this message on boot:

    "Secondary IDE channel no 80 conductor cable installed"

    And then the computer restarts every time windows start... Sometimes it didn't even start, in the win xp logo screen: *buff* it restarts.

    I tried everything i could think:

    - Changed the cables from HD and CD-ROM drives
    - Turned off the other HD, floppy, CD-ROM
    - Reinstalled windows

    And nothing...

    Oh, I almost forgot: it doesen't restart whne the Security Mode is on...

    Any idea??

    Best regards,
    Rodrigo Basniak

    Check your components to see if anything is damaged, especially your IDE devices.
