IIT IS SHOWING SMART FAILURE PREDICTED ON HARD DISK 2 THEN AFTER TRYING TO START IT SAID CRITICAL REPLACE HARD DISC DRIVE


HI There, you have hardware monitoring enabled (which ever vendor software you are using).
This error states there has been too many read/write errors. The disk is coping by writing to another area of disk, however it is confirming you WILL need to replace the drive in a controlled manner before the disks dies. Then this is uncontrolled and risk data loss.
if disk mirror or using raid 5, just swap out the faulty disk.
If it is the ONLY disk or no raid disk sets involved.
MUST backup your data.
Swap the faulty disk.
Rebuild and/or restore your data from your most recent backups. good luck...

Computer did not bootup after adding 2nd harddrive


Did you connect the drive to cable spot closest to the motherboard on the primary IDE channel? is it formatted? Did you try the drive on the Second IDE channel? Can your system support a 160 GIG drive?(if not try partitioning the drive.). Is the power and data cable connected properly?(the red line on the data cable should be closest to the power plug on the drive.)

How to set jumpers to run two hard drives

Haven't read anything about setting up either of them as slave and the other as master... if you don't do that... you get this sort of "HUH, what's going on." Not quite that simple, but not that hard either if you're IQ is probably at least 80, you should be able to do it... heck, half the drives have the jumper settings printed on them.
