Re: POWER FAILURE AFTER HD CONNECT
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.

If the powerwash button is not appearing it may be because you need to update the operating system. Please connect it to the internet and let it check for updates. If this doesn't work then go ahead and reset all Browser settings. this should cause the powerwassh button to appear.
With all that you've done, you might have worsened your PC mobo's condition. Now try to remove the processor and memory then PLUG it normally to the power outlet and see if the led in the mobo lights. After 3 minutes, unplug it and reseat the rams and processor. Now, turn the PC on!
what size capacity is the new hard drive - and what is the bios on your laptop able to recognise ? is it an upto date laptop ? some old bios's unable to see newer larger drives.... try updating the bios of your laptop
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
If you would provide more information about your Systemax system... model/serial number I can look the specs up. I can tell you the only way that it could be the hard drive would be if you had a bad power supply, not that your system can't handle the "power" of the hard drive. If you end up getting a new power supply, you could opt for one with a little higher wattage if you'd like. A 160gb hard drive isn't going to pull any more meaningful amount of current than a 40gb. What I would look at would be wither you had the jumpers on the hard drive configured correctly. For info on jumpers, see... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumper_(computing) Individual drive manufactures and drive models have different method for setting the jumpers and it will also very on what other IDE connected devices you have in your computer (optical drives, hard drives, Zip drives, and etc.).
did you configure the 160GB hard drive as second???
there is a shorting pin between the ribbem cable and the power cable.
take a look on the hard drive, there should have adiagram shows where the shorting pin need to go to make it as secondary drive.
install the hard drive as secondary drive.
if you want the drive to be the primary. you nee to install the operating system on it.
with out operating system the machine will boot up in to DOS only, and a error message telling you the drive has no loader.
yes possible you get the bios update from manufacturers site , but i think listen carefully , system compulsory connect the ups ,if power goes when you are updating bios will corrupt you can't get display, ok connect with ups and update the bios
Summary after reading several threads on that and fixing this problem on my DV9010 + ST9500325AS:
The problem is known - modern drives featuring SATA II interface
(3 Gb/s) wont allow DV9000 to boot if the first drive is older SATA 1 (1.5 Gb/s). Though the machine does boot if the new drive is installed in the first bay.
The solution is to force the new drive to run only in 1.5 Gb/s mode
that is typically done with a jumper on the back side of the drive.
For Seagate Mementus drives the jumper location is shown here http://www.seagate.com/images/support/en/us/cuda_sata_block.gif
