Hmm..
it's hard to put it on words, but ill try my best.

1st Inserting and removing the IDE cables and power cables :
- 1st of all you should know how to insert the IDE cables and power cables, but before you remove the cables and put it back again, try to observe the color of the cables, the Red color of power cable is parallel to the red color of IDE cable. so when you insert it again, you put it on the same way, the Red color of each cable must be parallel.

2nd putting the jumper:
- try to check the printings on you hard disk at the bottom, and see if there's any tutorials on how to put the jumper.

3rd access the BIOS:
- to access the BIOS, click Del. Hence, before you modify any settings there, MAKE SURE to remember those settings that you modify, so that when there's a trouble you can put it back to it's default setting. Ok let's continue, if your BIOS has an auto-detect it will directly detect the Hard Disk drive that's being installed, if not you will manually detect it on the different Hard Disk setting. After modifying save and exit setting and reboot your PC.

i hope this helps you.

When a hard disk has bad sectors, the magnetic layer is worn out and the number of bad sectors will increase. If you keep using this hard disk you risk losing your data. This hard drive cannot be repaired, throw it away and get a new one.

Cannot be detected by the computer


Good day,

For now I myself cannot give you a proper answer, but i can give a couple of options and/or rather a couple of tips on how can you make your computer detect your harddrive.

First i'd like you to provide the following:
1. Your computer specs.

Let's proceed to the tips:

1. Make sure the pin allocation is correct. ( You will find a 8 pins at the edge of your harddisk) This pins must be bonded together correctly for your computer to tell whether your harddisk is the master or the slave.
2. Check the IDE or SATA cable and see to it that it is properly connected to your hard disk and to your motherboard port.
3. Check the BIOS and see if the harddisk is enabled or not. At the side of the hard disk's name in BIOS you will see (well most of BIOS has this thingy) an option, this option is the detect option, click it and see if it does detect your harddisk.


If the tips above didn't work kindly update this post and kindly provide what i asked you to then we will fix you problem in no time.

Thank you and have a great day.

Check on harddrive you find jumper on it.
Then read on harddisk you can find there is specifiaction for master, slave and cable select jumper settings.
Put jumper as cable select then check.
Also reconnect sata or ide and power cable to harddisk.
Then check .
Let me know if you need more assistance.

Primary Master/Slave Hard Disk Error


Honestly, this is the best software I've used for file recovery:

It's a bit pricey, but if your data is important, it's worth every penny.

Hope this helps!

Can u help me?


to slave a hard disk, first you must set its jumper setting to slave because if you dont set it, your system will be on chaos because the system will be confuse who will be its master harddisk. so after setting it, power on and check at its BIOS if your new hard disk is registered to the system.
