Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook
I TRIED CHANGING ALL JUMPER SETTINGS AS WAS SUGGESTED TO ME ,BUT STILL NO LUCK.TO BEGIN WITH, I TRIED A40 GB HD/
SYSTEM SHUT DOWN. THEN 160 SAME/ I CONNECTED EACH OUTSIDE OF CARRIER IF THIS MEANS ANYTHING, GROUNDING AND ALL. ON THE CPU IT SAYS "ATA 133" , BUT MY HD IS
WESTINGHOUSE, DOES THAT MEAN ANYTHING?
Ok ATA is the standard for data transfer, in this case it is IDE. 133 is the max transfer rate. I have removed the hard drive from ours (bought from dell directly and has not been changed) and the hard drive is set as Master (no jumper). Try this if it does not work i would test the hard drive in another system or in an inclosure.

Tips for a great answer:
If you have completed the above checks and procedures and the drive is still not properly detected, please attempt to use Seatools for DOS (see the tutorial here) to test the drive. If SeaTools does not detect the drive after the steps followed above, or an error code that signifies drive failure displays, please proceed to the our Warranty Services page to begin a warranty replacement order.
