Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The HD's power connector and IDE should only be connected when the power is OFF. If you have done this and the PC will not power on, then the HD is defective. Sorry.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    How were you able to "CHECKED HD/IT IS WORKING" when the PC is powering off when it is connected?

    Appreciate your quick reply and thank you for no longer posting in all capital letters.

    Three(3) possibilities:


    • the power connector of the PC is wired wrong; red +5, black & black is ground, yellow is +12. you would need a DVM to check this out;

    • the power supply of the PC has insufficient power to supply the HD. Try another HD on this computer;

    • the IDE cable is connected in reverse either in the motherboard or in the HD itself.
    Cheers.

I have an older ibm thinkpad laptop, Tried to add memory, a new fan The power and fan and hard drive started , then powers down


Hi There,
Make sure all of your connections are tight, and that the RAM, HD connector, and anything else you've touched is seated correctly.
If you tried to put more RAM in than the computer will allow, it will not turn on. If you've unclipped a wire somewhere or your RAM isn't seated correctly, it will malfunction.
Check and then double check everything.

Hello,

the problem could be from your USB. The USB of your computer might not be powering the drive.

Secondly, the hard drive wire that passes from the computer to the external drive.

Lastly, the Hard drive case could be defective and not make the drive power on.

Therefore, connect the external hard drive to another computer, in other to be sure whether the problem is from your computer's usb port or from the hard drive. This will let us know where to focus our attention.

Let me know what happens thereafter.

Take care.

Hard disk doesnot detect


Hi....

If your hard drive will not be detected, be sure that your hard drive is connected correctly. Check you hard drive if it is plug in the power and the SATA or IDE cable.

Have you experience having trouble by this error, DISK BOOT FAILURE.
This is a hard drive problem witch is not correctly connected.

If your hard drive are correctly connected, try yo first boot your hard drive in the BIOS.

Hope it may helpful for you,,

Thanks for using fixya

Hd power problem systemax cpu


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.).

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.

Hard Drive doesn't show up


Hi,

Try doing flea power & the power cycle.

1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer, scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.

And press & hold the power button for 2 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.

Restart the system & check.

2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing.

Restart the system.

If it does not resolve the issue then you can try this :

Just remove the registry key it happen when this key is corrupted.

HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USBSTOR

And delete all references to the external hard drive.

And also HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB

and found the keys associated with the USB to IDE value.

After restarting the system, the drive shold be detected & configured automatically by the computer.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Failure on powerup?


I suspect that your PSU is faulty... can you buy another one? This is a fairly typical of a "Blown PSU" symptom to me... I would try replacing the PSU, and then connect ONLY the Motherboard, if OK, then Hard Drive, if OK then .. and so on.. I advise this as it MAY be something connected to the PSU that caused it to "Fault" but generally they just go Toes Up for no real reason.. other than PSU component failure.
