Try unplugging the computer from power, and the drive usb cable for ten minutes, this solve some problem on usb devices.

My desktop all of a sudden cannot detect the sata hdd. earlier it was working fine. Now it is not detecting the hdd and the red led is also blinking


First make sure there are no loose cabling/glitches.
Does the drive spin up?
- check power cable
1. connect the drive to another port
- port may be broken
2. connect another drive instead
- drive may be broken

I can't find my hard drive. Where is is?


1) Depends on whether you are using an external or internal Hard disk drive
2) If it is external HDD, ensure that the USB cable is plugged into the PC for auto connectivity
3) If it is an internal HDD, You have to unscrew your metal case, look for the 3.5 inches in rectangular dimension metal device screwed onto your CPU casing. Ensure that there is a physical cable connection between the HDD to the Motherboard. The cable that will direct you to the HDD from the Motherboard should either be the SATA (Small Flat headed Red cable) or the IDE cable (white flat 24 pin cable)
On the HDD brand label there should be a Capacity size in MB or GB or TB, Cylinders, Heads and ensure that the poswer supply is connected to the HDD if it is an IDE HDD

Check to make sure you used a SATA hdd & not a SATA II hdd for your replacement. Usually these are not backwards compatible. Hope this helps.

Can a MSI MS-6330 Ver 2.1 Motherboard support a 250 Gb HDD?


Yes, It will although if you buy a new drive, make sure that it has support for IDE as this mobo does not have support for sata. If your wondering IDE cables are the flat ribbon like cables. Sata is smaller, about the size of an ethernet cable, usually red or black.

More Hard Drive Space needed


well kristy, in installing the new HDD for your PC, just find a free SATA cable (that usually comes with the HDD when you buy one) the a free power pin, shut the computer down, plug both in, screw the HDD in place, then reboot the computer. Format the HDD under disk management (to do this check the link below)

for the RAM, i personally recommend getting the exact same RAM that you have right now, that is because of stability and compatibility. some issues may occur when you use generic plus branded.
