Installed new WD HDD (160Gb) into Toshiba Satellite A10-S167. Entered BIOS edit, but can't get laptop to recognize the new HDD (which replaced a smaller, failed HDD)


Shouldn't have any problems on the A10 series working with a 160GB drive, so long as it's an ATA/IDE type with a 44-pin connector. If it's not recognizing the drive, could it be that the pins were not precisely lined-up with the IDE connector? I'd remove the drive, make sure the pins are still all straight, reinsert it into the HDD compartment and see if it makes a difference.

How big of ata hdd is compatible with this, old hdd wore out


Hi,

As far as i know the maximum capacity drive is a 160GB drive.

The most common drives shipped with that model is usually 40GB.

If you update the BIOS it could take a larger drive.

Hello , I just bought an 80 gb hdd. I installed it to a MS 6119 ver 1.2 bx2 board, but its not picking in bios. But with Winxp it picks up when I start up the pc with xp cd, it picks up the 80 gb hard disk...


Hi,

I am ArmyMason and I believe the issue is the hard drive is too large for the system you have. That board is old and back in the day they didnt support large hard drives. You could try using a boot disk and partition the hard drive into 20 GB drives and see if that works.

Bios won't reconise 160 gig maxtor harddrive


You could try a BIOS update to increase the size of the Drive the BIOS is able to see.

The second last one indicates that drive sizes are supported over 65GB. It may still not be able to see the 160GB HDD, but this is your only option with this Board. You could always upgrade the Motherboard to support larger drives.

Good Luck.

ASUS P4S533 mother board not supporting full 160 gb


This is happing becuase of your motherboards BIOS !
Really, this happened to me too. You see, our motherboards which are very old cant support above 80 and so on. This is beacuse of the BIOS. You will need to update your BIOS inorder to give new features.

Try go to the Asus home page and download the latest driver for your motherboard. Then install it in your motherboard's BIOS. There is intructions for this in the Asus's home page.
