Hello,

Got a big problem. A drive is coming on at boot up and
staying on ! This is really screwed as it affects doing
anything with C drive. Wierd as no disk in drive, but the
light is lit up.

Can't remember where the setting is to not make it come
on a boot. That may stop it.P3 733 with Win ME.Used to
have it off. May be something stupid, hope so.

Any help be glad to get. Feel dumb to not know where it is.

Phil

The usual cause for this problem is having the data cable inserted the wrong
way up - have you had the case open?

No,after a gave it a rest for hours, then

Started it back up and the problem went away.Strange as it wasn't on long.
But is fine now, freaked me out as it stayed on without a disk.No odd
programs running.Just stayed on after a boot up, screwed with C: drive.

Thanks for the help, but know how to connect a A drive. Hope it was
just a one time thing.Did not mess with the case lately at all.
