Question about Hitachi Travelstar 80 GB Hard Drive
SOURCE: is there a jumper setting
There should be, look on the rear of the drive, close to the SATA and power connectors, you should see the jumper connections as well.
It varies from drive to drive, but the jumper setting could be engraved near the connector, look of SL for a slave setting.
If no, look on the label on the top of the drive, there should be the jumper settings listed there.
Some may be ambiguous, my last one offered the option of Master on / off. (Jumper in position 1 for on, no jumper for off) The off in this case was of course slave.
The result being, no jumpers - Slave.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer 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 electrical 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 will help
