    i don't think i can make it any clearer than this the error massage is display when you turn on the computer. plus the error massage says slave drive imcompatible which is my second hard drive with all the music file and everything i saved in it.

    Sorry, I'd not heard of the error before, so I just thought I'd check in case there was any information you left out. First of all check the power and IDE cables and the jumper pin on the back are all secure.
    For any more information, I'll need to know at what stage of the PC booting up you get the error message, and whether you're able to continue to windows or not.
