HDD Has been stop be detected in my computer,PLZ HELP!!!Somebody!

Good Day to all experts, I Recently buyed a used Seagate 160Gb ATA HDD in good conditions.
It worked perfectly in a week, As I was using it as a slave to save my stuff.
Knowing that my first HDD was just 32 GB only not enough for my new operating system Vista Ultimate, I put it out and used the one with 160Gb as primary. Then I putted the Operating System Vista Ultimate.
During the installation I accidentaly shutted down my computer. After that The HDD was not noticed in my computer BIOS. I reseted the BIOS and also remove and putted back the battery of the BIOS, and nothing worked. Also have try in different IDE Cables and still did not worked. Then I go to the guy who from I buy it and he have A IDE USB Cable . He tried out and apparently it did appear in his computer my HDD. What should I do to fix this. "Almost forgot The HDD 160Gb even through the guy said it worked still, it make a weird 1-3 minutes sound after what Shutdown error accidentaly I did, it like is scratched from the inside or something".PLZ HELP!!!

Toshiba SatelliteA105 PC needs hdd which should i get?


The larger the better for a good price. The most reliable are Western Digital and Seagate. You need to get a 2.5", SATA (Serial-ATA), 5400 or 7200rpm drive. The best prices are at sites such as newegg.com, tigerdirect.com, and amazon.com. Depending on what you want to store on the drive, a 160GB or 320GB drive would suffice.

HDD problemon asus motherboard p5rd1-vm


You need to install the SATA drivers that belog to your specific motherboard.
When you are installing Windows thru your Windows CD, there is a moment at teh beginning of the process that you will be asked to press F6 if you want to install 3rd party drivers.
That is your call.
Once the SATA drivers are installed, you will be able to continue with your Windows installation.

Hard drive compatibility


This motherboard is compatible with PATA/IDE Hd's running at 133/66/33Mbs. & ATA/SATA 1.5Mbs drives. The SATA's run faster. This board will not handle a SATA II's speed but it will still run on the P5P800-VM board. The links below show good buy's on both PATA/IDE & SATA I & II. Seagates for their 5yr. warranty.

Seagate ST3160215A 160GB Ultra ATA/100

As far a size, that is up too you. Windows can handle 5 time these sizes.

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
