Re: hardisk not detected
Is this the only HD in your system? If so, make sure the jumper on the drive is set to Master. Also make sure you use the Primary IDE controller. Make sure the IDE controller is enabled in the BIOS also.

Hi, For that problem, do this first check-up your bios setting. Power on your PC laptop, when screen popped up (press F2, delete etc. ) to get into standardbios Setup you see there if your hardisk drive detected or not detected. if not detected try to open your Laptop PC ( need power off. open cover at the back of your laptop ) check-up your hardisk drive for loose power cable, data cable hardisk Some burn , noise hardisk sound ) if detected, your operating system corrupted. you need to Reinstall your operating system like windows xp, windows 7 or linux base operating system. try that Solution first.
Just let me know if not yet working your laptop PC. Regard.
Once your powered on the CMOS battery is no longer an issue. If it isn't reading the IDE or SATA channels it could be because they are not set in the BIOS. Check your BIOS setting and double check your cable connections. You also need to make sure, for IDE devices, that one of the drives is set to Master and the other to Slave otherwise they confuse the board and cancel each other out.
well,unplug your pc, try to put back cable supply,try to configure your hardisk on cmos/bios set up,if the hardisk have detected by your cpu,refresh your hardisk,disconnect hardisk ide cable from motherboard and put it back.then try to run again.if windows does not
come out,reinstall your windows again on your cd installer you can fix from repair your system.have a nice day
Power off the system & unplug the power cord. Open your PC case. To remove any static build up from your body, touch the metal bottom of the case before touching any internal parts. It sound like the primary IDE data cable is loose or the power cable to the drive is loose. Try disconnecting both & than re-connect them. If that does not stop the issue, replace the data cable for the primary IDE drive. Click on the link provided. The site will explain IDE connections & the differences between a 40-pin IDE data cable & an 80-pin data cable.

Try the above first. If the problem continues the issue could be the hard disk drive. Mike
