    No display with IDE to Sata adapter

    Hi all, so I bought an IDE to Sata adapter off eBay and it hasn't worked out as I planned. So when I turn the computer on all the fans start and carry on spinning etc but nothing appears on the screen.

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-Way-IDE-...-/220779924864

    The IDE HDD still had windows on it but I recently reinstalled on a new HDD. Although I copied most files from the ide HDD I clumsily forgot some as well.

    I've tried disconnecting the new HDD so there isn't a conflict but this hasn't solved anything. Excluding the IDE I have two HDDs one for windows that I disconnected and another do files.

    So any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    So your HDD is IDE and your connecting to a SATA motherboard? Using that adaptor your need to use the SATA plug nearest to the white power plug on the adaptor.

    You will need to plug a molex power connector into both the power socket on the HDD and also to the power connector on the adaptor.

    Would you have to change the Bios settings as well?

    Possibly not sure what to change though and I can't change anything with the adapter, so hopefully there's a setting I can change before using the adapter to make it work

    Edit: I solved the problem by changing the HDD jumper to Master
