Question about Samsung Spinpoint MP0402H 40 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Samsung MP0402H My Computer suddently shows me the message: no system found. The cause is that my harddisk isn't recognized by the system anymore. It seems as if the controller of the HDD isn't working anymore. To verify this and to regain access to access my data, I thought that I could change the controller by another one of the same type. Mine is from 2004.11, serialnr S03WJ10XB07435. Can somebody help me? Is this the right way? Would it work? Does someone have a HDD of the same built?

This trick is the proverbial 100 to 1 long shot but is worth trying with any drive that suddenly stops working - put it in a freezer bag, squeeze out as much air as you can an the put inside another freezer bag and then place in a freezer for an hour. Fair dinkum, this sometimes works but the drive may only work for an short time if quickly re-installed. If it does work, unload critcal data IMMEDIATELY.

I have a dell dimension 3000 series desktop and when I turn it on it does not get passed POST and tells me the following: primary drive 0 not found primary drive 1 not found gives me the option of F1...


This normally means that the Hard Drive is not recognized, and most likely can be attributed through a crashed hard drive. If it's not POSTing, then I think you need to look for loose cords/cables as well. That can cause the hard drive to not be recognized.

This is a faulty printhead. And is due to a new feature in these printers which is to stop you from using a compatible head (I know it isn't, but there you are).

Disconnect the monitor from the docking station and plug it directly in the laptop connector. If all is well it might be the docking station. I had one crash a computer and had to rebuild the operating system to make it work again.

Samsung YP-S3 not recognized by computer


I think you have answered the question yourself. Change the USB cable.
If that doesn't make any difference try searching for the hardware again. Check the settings and drivers are working. Roll back the driver etc.

Samsung hard drive model number


if this is a samsung, on the actual HD, you will see the jumper labels like the one below.

Usually it will say:

M = Master
S = Slave
Cs = Cable select

but if it is not visible anymore and you have 4 sets of pins, then the slave may either be the 3rd or the 2nd if you are looking at it from the back.

if you have other questions just let me know.

About Harddisk Problem


Hi,

To my knowledge, NDD stands for Norton Disk Doctor and is part of the Norton System Utilities marketed by Symantec. This, I believe, is an old product and has been replaced by Norton System Works.

In effect the function of the NDD is similar to Scandisk of Windows.

Alternately, Samsung/TriGem has their own set of Utilities, one of which is Disk Manager.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
