New 160 gig hard drive, can't load XP on Fujitsu S6210

I give up. It’s not the hard drive. It’s something with the machine. The new hard drive is doing the exact same thing. I tried flashing the bios. I tried both hard drives in another machine and they worked fine. I tried starting the setup in another machine and then putting the drive back into your machine to complete it and that fails. For some reason, the machine will not allow me to format the drive. And if I format the drive in another machine, yours won’t recognize it. It still errors out when you try the windows install. 100 ATA 5400 160 GIG

Insert the new hard drive in your laptop, boot up and go into the BIOS.
Check if the hard disk setting is set to Auto (detect). Check the system configuration and see if it detects the hard disk.
If there is a hard disk diagnostic utility within the BIOS, run it to check the hard disk.
You can also test the hard disk by booting up with a boot floppy disk, run fdisk.exe to see if can display, create a partition, and format the hard drive etc.

If not of this works then it is highly possible that you have a faulty disk controller in your laptop.

New DQ45EK gives blue screen during XP setup


You may have a bad sector(s) on your hard drive. Best bet is to run a low level format on the drive to clean it up and then do the install.

This is a little confusing, because BOOTMGR is not part of XP. Vista or better only. Use Win 7 OS disc and choose the Repair option.

How can I upgrade the CPU on fujitsu s6210?


The problem with laptops is that each model is custom made. There is no standard for motherboards in laptops. There is no way to put a new CPU in your laptop as the requirements for each motherboard change with each processor.

How do i format the seagate 5400 160 gig hard drive?


Configuring the BIOS
After completing the drive installation, restart your computer. Your computer
may automatically detect your new drive. If your computer does not
automatically detect your new drive, follow the steps below.
1. Restart your computer. While the computer restarts, run the system
setup program (sometimes called BIOS or CMOS setup). This is usually
done by pressing a special key, such as DELETE, ESC, or F1 during
the startup process.
2. Within the system setup program, instruct the system to auto detect
your new drive.
3. Save the settings and exit the setup program.
When your computer restarts, it should recognize your new drive.
