    I wonder if when the hard drive failed it didn't drag something on the motherboard down with it. Once the boot up starts it does not complete so I am unable to use a cd to install windows or format the drive or anything of that nature. The screen goes blank and the monitor acts as if there is no signal.

    Gotta thank you for your help, however I solved the problem and am a little embarrassed to say.

    It seems the monitor would not function until I used another CRT to view and then install Windows then loaded the motherboard drivers. She works fine now.



    Thanks again!

Have you done any setup to the new hard drive? Any new hard drive will come with no data on it. This means you will have to reinstall windows onto the new hard drive, or copy windows from your old hard drive(if it still boots up) using the CD that came with the hard drive. If your hard drive didn't come with the software, post which hard drive you have, and I can give you the link to download it.
Try and find the Windows CD's that came with your computer, and use them to reinstall it. If this was a name brand computer (like dell, or HP), then it will have come with some CD's (usually). Sometimes the restore is built into the old hard drive :-)
If this was a clone computer, you should have a legal copy of windows that was given to you.

    It depends on the new drive. Some older motherboards cannot detect larger hard drives. Do you happen to know the motherboard model number, or the hard drive model numbers? You might just need to remove the hard drive, and perform a BIOS update with a bootable floppy. Get me the model number of your motherboard, and i'll see if I can help you find the BIOS update for you.

Hi experts, I have scoured the internet and I have not found anyone who is in the same situation as I am. I just bought this laptop by HP "hp envy touchsmart m6-k022dx sleekbook" to replace my previous...


if you want a hard drive that will not fail the hard drive should be a solid state (SSHD)
they are priced at around $60.00 a gig and come in sizes from 120 to well over 500 gig
as there are no spinning discs, failure is remote
besides that a sshd will store more for the same gig size than a disc HD
now best talk with a computer geek to get exact information but you should be able to remove the hd in the computer and replace it with a new one
now connect the hard drive ( removed ) back to the unit as you would a backup hard drive and then down load it back into the computer
remember when fitting a new hard drive you may have to reset the bios to boot from the cd os disc or boot from the removed hard drive as the new hd will not have an os on it
AS I said talk with a geek and get how to do it
computer capacity is also determined by the ram size so if you have the slots fit another ram stick

Why does my dell computer say NTLDR is missing when 1st turned on & my c drive is western digital? It began 9/20/10 after i used system restore & 6/ /10.


NTLDR = NT loader or the i summary the Operating System (OS) Boot loader.
It basically means that your System Restore failed to properly configure your Windows Boot loading programs and you should do a Windows System repair immediately (from a Recovery CD) to avoid further problem or restore to a know good backup (if you have one that is!).
Hope it helps.

Hello Klpook, Hi, 1. scan your PC with an antivirus software, if the action failed to work, 2. use another PC to check if your Hard drive is good. if the other PC failed to detect you hard drive. 3. Use Hard drive utilities, such as Disk manager for Western Digital to diagnose your HD. If by chance no positive work is done. Your drive is bad.

Windows Server trying to boot from external hard drive


go into your 'update settings'. there is a section of where it asks you about how you want your settings set and where to send updates to. You may find the problem here. Check all the 'advanced' settings as well. If your Western digital is plugged in via USB and not requiring updates, unplug it while starting your system, after complete start up, reinsert the USB plug. It may show new devise found, then from here, you may be asked to reinstall it to stop the rebooting.

My western digital hardrive freezesthe computer what should i do?


On anothre computer, go to Western Digital's web-site, and download their "Drive Fitness" software. Burn to CD, or write to 3.5" diskette.

Boot your computer from the diskette/CD, and run the test, to see if the hard-drive is "failing".

Note that Western Digital has a "Customer Loyalty" program.
If you have the serial-number from your current hard-drive,
you can buy a new hard-drive, online, at a discount.

Help!! Western digital 500gb external hard drive ticking noise


Yes. This is going to sound strange. Put the drive in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer. Next day, take it out, hook it up, and see if it is recognized.

If so, under My computer, right click on the drive - click Properties - then Tools, then Error Checking. Check box Automatically Fix File System Errors. Let it run. If everything shows up, be ready to transfer wnat you want off of it.

Freezing shrinks the metal parts . Microscopically, but often enough to get stuck parts free enough to get working.

I just went through this with a 750Gig Book. now i have reformatted the drive (after transferring all over to new drive) and the clicking is gone and all disk checks are fine and i wonder whether to trust this device ever again... Hate to just throw out a large drive.

Western digital 500gb external hard drive ticking noise- Help !!!


There is a number of data recovery solutions online. Just google it. I would recommend one that sends out a static sensitive bag for transportation. But the customer service rep you spoke with, is probably right. The actuator arm has probably locked up and is failing to move back and forth reading and writing to the platters. Good luck and i feel for you with it being your new born on the hard drive.

Computer won't detect new HDD as master when booting


You can do this!

1. Connect your 500gig drive as the slave of your smaller boot drive.
2. Go to http://freewareapp.com/western-digital-data-lifeguard-tools_download/ and get the Western Digital Lifeguard tools.
3. Run the executable to install WD tools.
4. Run that application.

You'll notice there is a Drive to Drive Copy utility. This will clone your new 500gig drive from the smaller drive. When the utility finishes copying the drive, shut down. Remove the smaller drive, and set your 500 gig drive as master/single. Reboot, and you should be running off the new drive.

It is possible that your old drive was an IDE drive and your new one is SATA. If so, you may need to enter Setup on the reboot, go to the Boot menu, and set the boot device to the new drive type.
