I need help here to fix the IDE connectivity issue on ECS RC415ST motherboard. There is a HP Pavilion T3705 Desktop at my office. Suddenly the system stopped working. It boots but does not shows up windows screen. There is a CD ROM and a 40GB hard drive connected. I had fixed some sata connector on it to setup a different disk for backup purpose. When the system stopped working I had checked the connection was proper. The issue shows with the hard drive. THe IDE drive contains Windows and it is not detected in the bios. I had changed the cable and then checked the same thing. I even tried to borrow another IDE drive and fix the same in this old system, but still it is not working. I am not sure but my friend says that the IDE socket might be dead completely. I am looking for some help to fix this thing. I tried to check and clean up stuff but still no help. I think a bios update can fix up this thing. So where can I get the bios for it and how to update it. Second thing if everything failed I need help to find a low end motherboard similar to ECS RC415ST to use my existing stuff and make this machine work. I do not want to spend a higher amount. Any basic board that can detect the drive will do. Is there any other way by which I can connect the hard drive to the system and use it for temporary basis atleast for couple of months. Thanks.
