Question about Maxtor 7Y250M0 250GB Serial ATA 7200rpm 8MB Hard Drive, OEM (DSMXSATA250G8M)
My drive has no diagram where to place the "pin sleeve" to make it a slave
A slave drive is defined by removing the jumper (pin sleeve) completely from the drive. Then go into your BIOS and if it doesn't auto-detect as slave, manually change the settings and you'll be good. You shouldn't have to go into your BIOS.
If you can see it as slave in BIOS, but not in Windows that means the drive is not formatted properly and to do so, Right click on My Computer in Windows and goto Manage. It should load the Computer Management window. From there goto Disk Management under Storage in the left side browser. You should see the Hard Drive there, right click on that and format it.
That should do it.

your pc is on but there is no display on the monitor
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 secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty
if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail
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 electical extensions
even something as small as an electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems
computers need all electrical power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket
if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free
restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard
hope this helps
