Hmmm..well..what operating system are you using..the memory allocation is usually limited by the bios and other factors. so , simply stacking on more rom memory will not expand it..

Mabee the hard drive has failed . try entering bios and see if the hard drive is recognised .If not try turning the computer off unplug it then reconnect the drive data cable and power cable
then re- start the computer and see if it is recognised. some models of older hard drives needed a driver installed during set up -- you usually have to put the driver on a floppy disc and hit the f6 button when prompted by windows set up to install third party drivers . I hope this helps

How do i combime two hard drives to increase memory ?


RAM (Random Access Memory) are memory chips that the computer uses to run programming on the computer. This can be upgraded to the limit the computer will support, a good reference for capability of your system and a good source for purchase at www.crucial.com
The Hard Disk Drive, is like a computer filing cabinet where you install programs and store data on your system.
I assume, you are talking about combining 2 hard drives to create more disk space on your system. This is done by setting up a RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Drives) To do this you will need a computer that supports RAID or install a RAID controller and configure 2 or more drives to create an array.

I replaced a 360Gb IDE drive on Thinkcentre S50 with 1Tb SATA. But when SATA is enabled in BIOS the CD drive is not recognised so cannot install any operating system on the SATA drive. Tried all...


i suspect that your problem is not in the bios, instead with jumpers.
IDE reqires jumpers on the back of drives to tell the computer how to use the drive. if you removed the 360 gig hdd (which was robably the primary drive) you will have to now make the disc drive primary.
However now there is a feture called "cable select" wich detects all hardware on the IDE controler and assigns them appropriate properties, this is a good way to do it because jumpers are a pain in the rear end

The hard drive you are using is either broken or corrupt. Purchase a new hard drive. Unfortunatly the data cannot be recovered.

Pc died


Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....

Disc restarts computer


Hey Soumik,

You would be getting this problem due to:

1. ROM memory inside your CD/DVD Drive is not recognised by ur BIOS.
2. Would be problem with ur data cable connector.
3. Settings changed in your BIOS.

When you are inserting any cd or dvd in your drive some times it happens that ur rom memory does not load that much required files in itself.

You need to do the following:

1.First of all check ur bios settings for boot priority likewise FDD, CD/DVD Rom, HDD.
2. increase your Virtual memory that if the ROM bios is not able to load required files then it'll be loaded in virtual mem.

To increase virtual mem. follow following steps:
i. Right click my computer and select properties.
ii. Go to Advanced Tab and then select Settings button of "Visual effects, Processor Scheduling.....and virtual memory"
iii. Again select Advanced Tab
iv. In Virtual memory section select change
v. Uncheck the option for automatically manage paging file size(if it is checked)
vi. Select custom size and type initial size as 1736 and maximum size as 2048
vii. click set button click OK if any confirmation is asked.
viii. Click OK to apply the settings.
ix. Restart ur system.

3. If this doesnot take effect to ur problem then you must be aware of data cables. Try out another data cable of ur hard disk.
as well as Power cable. and then insert disk to checkout whether it is ok or still giving u the problem. if it is then there is no problem with either your system or with data cables and connectors. Replace the DVD/CD Drive.

USB flash disk not working


Assuming you are using a Cruzer Micro Drive with U3 Smart, things can be a little confusing because the drive actually shows up as two independent devices. When you insert the drive, there should be two devices showing up in your list of drives. One of them is installed as a CD Rom Drive and the other one is a Removable Drive. If you double click on the CD Rom Drive instead of the Removable Drive and you don't have any U3 applications mapped to the CD Rom Drive, then you'll get an insert disk message because Windows thinks that the CD Rom Drive is empty. Just use the Removable Drive if you want to simply install and transfer files.
