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.
the hardisk cannot be detected. On system bios... press"del" to enter bios,(on other computer its "F2") ..on the BOOT tab check who is the first booting device. set hardisk (ide) as your first booting device by pressing"+" sign. On the bios you can also check if hardisk is detected, if not then your hardisk crashed.. need to replace it.
Its a Hardrive Problem you could try taking out the hardisk and cleaning the pins.. and plugg it in..
if that doesnt fix the problem you will have to press F8 While Booting the Bios test, then choose last know config, or save mode with command prompt
then type chkdsk /f and restart your computer.
First Make sure the hard drive power connector and ribbon cable are connected.
Swap the hard drive.
if id doesnt wrk then.. Go to the BIOS setup, and under the Integrated Peripherals menu, make sure that ‘On Board HDC’ is enabled for both Primary and Secondary channels. Also ensure that all drive types are set to AUTO under the Standard CMOS Setting. If you are not comfortable with changing the BIOS values, just reset the BIOS to factory defaults.
Hope this helps
keep me updated
Thanks for using Fixya
Have a nice day!
hi im josh in cebu phils.Friend if that happens whrein your 2nd hdd dont detect. Try to use these solutions. Check first the jumper of the hardisk whether it is stated as slave or master. if 2nd disk is master the jumper should be in the master and if it is slave the jumper must be slave. or try to use another IDE cable. put them as both master the first hdd in first ide slot and your 8 GB 2nd hardisk in 2nd slot as master also. or try to enter bios setup utility then try to check or detect the both device.thats all good luck
There has to be a BIOS setup to detect the size of the drive. Its could be escape key f1 or f2. One of these keys should trigger it when the Toshiba screen picks up. I didn't see anything in the book about it.
