    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.

WD; I purchased a new SATA internal hard drive to replace the master drive but it didn't come with any instructions. The computer does not seem to recognize the drive. Computer does not respond to...


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets

if you need more help with this post a reply

hope this helps you

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Need diagram of how to hook up my western digitial sata harddrive to mother board a asus a7n8x-e deluxe


this motherboard does not support your new Hard Drive. SATA is a connection type required for your hard drive. Your motherboard supports IDE connector. You probably can get a pci card that allows you to attach the hard drive.

Switching from 40GB IDE HDD to 500GB SATA HDD. SATA won't boot.


Hi there
No there is no need to change any jumpers on a sata drive, go into the bios settings and tell the bios to boot from the western digital drive only.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!!

Auto format new hard drive in new custom pc


If you mean boot from cd with xp pro during setup you will have the opportunity to format drive either fat32 or ntfs use ntfs
I have never done it but if you can do it partition your hard drive so that you can save personal file and programs on second partition then if you have to format drive again your files on second partition will not be lost
