SOURCE: LSI Web BIOS won't start?

I have a LSI 8888ELP on a Asus P5Q Deluxe and had the same problem with not being able to access the Web BIOS.

What I found was I could access the Web BIOS if I disconnected the hard drive that plugged into the onboard controller.

My PC is working fine, when my mouse starts lagging and a blue screen pops up, telling me to reboot my computer. so I do, and when it comes on, a screen comes up saying American Trends and some other...


The message you are seeing (ami trends) is the 1st stage of the netbook booting (the bios), this checks that all the system components are present in a sequence.

From what you are describing, it looks as though the hard drive has slowly been failing and this would account for the lagging mouse. The Bios error message "hard disc error" confirms that the bios has not been able to detect the hard drive, which could mean that the drive has failed, the drive controller has failed, or, (possibly) this is virus related. Pressing F1 to resume will achieve nothing, as this is a sort of skipping step that ignores the problem.

Before going into the stages below, try to access the bios (press F2 just as it powers on), look for the screen which lists the boot order and drives attached, see if it "sees" the hard drive (primary master) and that it is selectable. If so, reboot and see if it now detects it. Sometimes removing and reinserting the drive is enough to get it to be recognised
If it then works, worth virus scanning the drive to be on the safe side

Fixing the problem:
Firstly, you need to see if the hard drive has indeed failed, the best way is to substitute the hard drive with another one known to be good. If this is recognised in the bios, than this has most likely been the issue. You will need to reinstall windows (external CDrom and windows OS needed)

Secondly, if the hard drive is not detected by the bios, the fault lies in the hard dive connection ( check the connection from the hard drive to the motherboard, make sure it is firm and not loose, sometimes even a loose fitting drive will not be recognised). If it still is not recognised then the problem lies with the motherboard and will possibly need specialist repair

Having a problem with an external HDD. Although it is getting power - any OS cannot seem to pick up the HDD. This means I cannot access any of my files. It is a Samsung G2 Portable HDD.


Sometimes it takes a few minutes for the computer to detect a USB device when it's plugged in. Try rebooting the computer while the external hard drive is connected and powered. Then wait a few minutes before we start worrying. The last resort is to contact Samsung and tell them their product is defective - they might have a fix.

Hard Drive not recognised


If you are trying this on XP or other Windows OS, find out if it gets detected or not. you will find a icon below in your desktop

If this icon is on your taskbar and you are still not able to find the drive then you might need to manually configure the drive and partition in your computer management.

To go to computer management and assign drive letter to your drive detected follow below

go to start->control panel-> administrative tools->computer management-> locate disk management-> on the right side pane you might find detected hard drive but no drive letter-> right click the drive and select change drive letter and path->click on add->from assign the following drive letter select a drive-> click ok-> and your new drive will be assigned a drive letter and you can access your drive.

Below are the screenshots to do it. Hope this helps

Drive not recognised


Sounds like a possible problem with the usb ports. Does the usb drive work on other pc's? If so, does your laptop recognize other usb devices (flash drives, mouse, keyboard etc.)?

If your laptop won't recognize other usb devices all the time, try this: go into device manager, go to the bottom, expand 'universal serial bus controllers'. Starting at the bottom of the list, right click on each item and left-click 'delete'. At some point you will likely lose your mouse/tochpad as it is probably an internal usb device. If this happens, press the power button on the laptop once to shut it down. Restart it, and windows will re-detect the deleted usb hubs and hopefully fix the problem. If this doesn't do it, go back and delete the other usb root hubs and host controllers. This is totally safe for your system and often fixes this issue. Windows will always re-detect hardware at boot time.

let me know if this helps or not :)

Unable to play songs on the Alba 512 mb Mp3 Player


Managed to fix it !

Windows XP or any other version had an issue in completely recognising the media player.
Every time I would plug in the MP3 players, Windows would show that a new hardware has been plugged in and try to set-up the drivers. It would also breifly recognise it as being a music player and assign drive E: and F: to it. However every-time I would try and select the E: or the F: drive to inspect its contents Explorer would hang-up and crash.

So I re-did this in MS Dos prompt mode. i.e. for thos who are not familiar do the following :

ClicK Start - Run - and type cmd to bring up the command prompt

then type cd\
and go to the root C:

Plug in the MP3 player and wait for the detection. Once detected on the C:\ prompt

Type Format E:\

Be Very Very Careful that you don't type ***** Format C: ***** otherwise that would be the end of your hard drive and all the data :-)

After the E:/ has finished formatting the control should return back to the C:\ prompt from where you would be able to type E:/ and go the E: drive

Unplug and plug the mp3 player again and now windows should be able to detect the player properly and not hang-up.

You may have just lost all the songs on the mp3 player but now the player is back into life. So start copying your songs and enjoy your player !

Good-Luck.

Ps3 not recognising ps3 games and movies


Sounds like it could be failure of the Blu-ray drive. A friend of mine had the same issue.

Contact Sony support and if it's under warranty they will fix it free of charge (here in Australia they do anyway).

IOGEAR COMBO not recognised


Is your hard drive detected by the computer? Did you try changing the USB ports? You can check if the drive is detected by Right click on taskbar > properties > startmenu > customize > advanced > scroll down completely and select system administration tools "Display on the all programs menu" > ok. Click on start > all programs > administrative tools > computer management > double click on storage. click on disk management(local) here you should see your drive. If you dont then the drive is probably not detected. If you see, you can just re-format it from here and it will appear in your my computer.
