If you are trying to put another hardrive into your existing pc I could explain but you if would like something more visual then there is a tutorial here

its simple really since the computer auto detects the new hardrive. the hardest part are the jumpers on the back of the hardrive. You see one hardrive has to be set to Master and the other has to be set to slave. the hardrives can connect to the IDE cable (the big flat cable inside your pc) in any order but they cannot be both set to master. The jumpers are easy to switch and the hardrive itself will have a diagram right next to the jumpers to show you how to move the jumpers to make the selection.

its a great idea to have two drives in your pc in case something happens to the first, but i always recommend a hard backup (cd/dvd).

Hard drive won't reboot (jumpers not set proper)


Just google your drive's make and model and search the results for a diagram of the jumper settings.
If you have a SATA drive, there ARE no jumpers. If the drive is a PATA, then if it's connected with another drive or cdrom, then make the cdrom 'slave' and the disk drive 'master'.
Check your bios setting sometimes bios changes the boot order esp. if bios doesn't find a boot disk- make sure you have your desired boot device showing in the boot setup.

Can you show a diagram for


you posted in the wrong category! I will try to help! There are two types of hard drives! IDE and Sata. All the newer computers are sata. All the older ones are IDE! Depending which computer you have, odds are this hard drive you got is for the other! They are not interchangable! However ebay sells a convertor just for this! I have one! It was less then $10 delivered! It will allow to to hook a sata hard drive upto an IDE computer.

Emachine come up where it ask for me to hit f10 or f2 but it wont do anything. My keyboard or the mouse wont work. My emachine is a w3050. Looking for a diagram of how to hook hardrive cd and just to see...


Are you using a wireless mouse or keyboard? If so try using one that you plug in. As for the cd rom and hard drive all you need is one cable for each device hooked to seperate connectors on the motherboard. Ususally the hard drive will be sata which is a red cable and can only go onto one connector on the motherboard. the cdrom is an ide cable(grey usually) and there is a seperate connector for that on the mainboard.

Need diagram of how to hook up my western digitial sata harddrive to mother board a asus a7n8x-e deluxe


this motherboard does not support your new Hard Drive. SATA is a connection type required for your hard drive. Your motherboard supports IDE connector. You probably can get a pci card that allows you to attach the hard drive.
