Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Gigabyte GA K8NSP motherboard i just installed a Samsung HE502IJ hard drive. So at this point i only have 1 hard drive in my computer. I have to install windows on it but for some reason my motherboard is not detecting it. I went into the bios to see it would detect it but it still doesnt. When i power on my computer i hear the hard drive spin so its connected properly. I thought i would need a jumper so i add it but it still wont read it with it on or without it. Please help i need to install windows on this hard drive
Is it Sata or IDE?.Also is your boot order set to the CD rom as the first device.The O.S is bootable only if the CD runs it first. Windows should format it later in the install process.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
