Hard drive not found hp pavilion ze5730us


If this machine is running XP, beware. It is no longer supported, and hackers will be looking for these machines to infect. I recommend you get a newer machine. The hard drive may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. You could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a USB Hard Drive Adapter to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive.

Sharp mebius pcmj750r


This appears to be a Win 2000 or XP machine. These Operating Systems are no longer supported. I recommend you start looking for a newer machine & os. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. Then, you could copy them to a newer machine when you get one.

If this machine is running XP, or earlier (98, 2000, ME, etc.), beware. It is no longer supported, and hackers will be looking for these machines to infect. I recommend you get a newer machine, or don't try to get on the Internet with this one. The hard drive or some other critical component may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. That way, at least you may not lose your files.

I have a Dell Inspiron 560 with bad motherboard. I have another, somewhat similar, 560s and would like to switch the W7 hard drive (with all my programs) into this other machine. Possible? Pitfalls? T


Hard drives are friendly in the sense they can be swapped back and forth. Just the connections and power must match, even if you have to use an adapter. BIOS must see the hard drive. From there the pc will take on the role of the original computer. You just need to make sure drivers will work, or you must update them for the new hardware.

How to slave the hard drive


You must go to BIOS setup and follow the steps.God bless youHowever follow this steps:

Instructions
1
Remove the screws on your computer case and slide the cover off of the machine. Notice the hard drive bays in the front of the machine. The existing hard drive is installed in one of these bays.


2
Use the tweezers to set the jumper pins to "Slave" mode. The jumper pins are white connectors located on the back of the hard drive. Above the jumper pin section on the hard drive is the schema to set the drive to "Slave."




3
Insert the hard drive into the computer case bay underneath the existing drive. Screw in the drive and mount it to the case using the screws included with the hard drive packaging.


4
Connect the hard drive cable from the main hard drive to the secondary slave drive. There are two connectors on the hard drive cable. The very end of it is inserted into the main hard drive. The middle connection is used for the slave drive. Insert this secondary, middle connector into your newly installed drive.


5
Insert one of the power supply cables into the back of the hard drive. This supplies electrical power to the device.


6
Replace the case cover back onto the machine. Ensure you replace the screws to properly fasten it to the computer case.

Emachine EL1852 keep on restarting


Hi,
Does it load operating system fully before restarting?If it does,run a full scan of the drive with an updated anti-virus.
If not,do a reboot[enslave] of your hard disk from another computer.This is how to:-
Remove the hard disk from your machine.
Disconnect CD/DVD ROM from machine 2 and connect your hard drive.
Start the machine.'You're trying to run Unix' alert comes on, press f1[ save changes].
A disk check operation starts.This repairs the operating system on your hard disk.
After successful loading operating system of machine2,turn it off and remove your drive.
Fix it on your machine and start it.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

Given E-Machine 366I2. Will not take new hard Drive


Shouldnt think it was the cables since you got as far as you have. Could be a problem on the drive and you might want to do a low level format to make sure. Drive type should not matter. Western Digital has a low level format utility on there site. wd.com

my other thought is that for some restores you have to have the exact components present that originally came with the machine. so, unplug everything but keyboard, mouse and video. put back to original amount of memory.

use a windows disk to do restore from scratch instead of restore disk. good luck.

Hard Drive


You can replace it with a larger one, just make sure you buy the proper hard drive. If its and IDE hard drive, buy and IDE hard drive, if its an SATA Hard drive, buy an SATA Hard drive. also make sure after you install the new hard drive that you use the operating system cd to format the drive and to install the operating system.
