I am trying to restore my Tiny PC back to factory setting after many problems. I have inserted the "reload backup CD version 0.4" and followed the onscreen messages, pressed "r" on both occassions but keep getting the following message "unable to communicate with ATA controller". I would be extremely grateful for some advice on how to solve this problem

What operating system are you using XP?

1st Step- go into BIOS[usually press delete at POST but an pnscreen message will tell you]
Then run through all setting to make sure that the Harddisk drive is set to auto. and all other settings are set as they should be.
Then come back
With operating system details

I am running Windows XP and I have checked that the HD drive is set to auto within the standard CMOS features of the BIOS. I do not know what the other setting for the BIOS should be but will gladfully take advice on the required setting. I am happy to receive email contact direct if it will help solve this issue more quickly.

Please keep the thread going, in this way others with more knowledge than I can come in - E-mail direct and you are relying on my somewhat limited knowledge - for example my BIOS advice had to be of a general nature because I do not know how TINY present their BIOS screens - large manfacturs can add to what may be called a 'standard' BIOS

So here is your E-mail lets see what others make of it .
