    How to know if motherboard is sending right signals?


    Hello, as I said in another post I have a problem with a pentium1 motherboard. Basically, hard drives connected to this motherboard are not recognised while CD drives, connected to the same IDE slot and using the same IDE cable is recognised without any problem. I therefore was thinking; is there maybe some device which just lets you know what signals the motherboard is sending from the IDE socket. Such a device could help me understand what is going on.

    Yes devices like this exist, but a pentium1 motherboard is not worth it. You could buy a new modern computer for less than the cost of devices designed to do this.
