I guess there is nothing with BIOS since it identify your Western Digital Caviar Hard Drive. Try changing the jumper setting of this Hard Drive by reading the Instruction that comes along when you purchase. Otherwise you can visit the Western Digital website and click on Support-Knowledge BASE...http://www.wdc.com

Need hd parameters to manually install my wd2500js sata drive.


Unless you have specific reason or odd hardware then then for most purpose setting the BIOS on a comuter to AUTO for the hard drive is all that is needed.

If the BIOS fails to see a SATA drive then in most instances there is an issue with the drive itself or it has had the settings changed at a low level.
In both those instances the settings for the drive itself would be of no help to you.

However if you really do need them they are available here.

I think that your disk-drive is about to "die", and the symptom of not being able to install Windows (which tries to write many files onto the disk) is a strong indicator.

Is the drive still under warranty? If so, W.D. will give you a free replacement. If not, W.D. has a 'Customer Loyalty' program -- buy a new disk-drive from their web-site, and get a discount.

Have an AN9 32X mobo with a Sapphire HD 4850 (512) vc, which works fine with Win XP Pro, but when I go to install a new HD (WD 1tb) and new OS all I get is graphics card crashes and won't actually boot. ...


Try this site- http://abit.ws/page/sa/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php@pMODEL_NAME=Fatal1ty+AN9+32X&fMTYPE=Socket%20AM2&pPRODINFO=BIOS

I assume you know what key to press at boot up in order to get the machine to boot into bios. On mine I have to keep hitting the delete key at boot time for the Award setup screen to show. Other machines may take different key strokes.

Also you might want to get a copy of a compatible edition of a Linux distro and boot into it. You'll have to set your BIOS for the DVD to be your first boot drive in order for the "live" Linux DVD to boot into Linux.

My 250 gb hard drive is only showing capacity of 127gb


Firstly install SP3 if that doesnt work you need to update your bios to get large disk support. If you dont want to perform any of these fixes you could simply split the drive into 2 or more partitions to access the full 250gb. Goto Control Panel/Computer Management/Disk Management you will see in there the missing gb's of your drive. Simply right click it format it and give it a drive letter.......Cheers from Scott

I don't think that you need a bios upgrade for a 'virus' infection - they generally don't go there, as modifications to the flash memory can be tricky and difficult without knowing the flash type; viruses generally affect OS areas as being much easier.

Few steps to check your harddisk status on the motherboard would resolve this issue. Checkin to the cmos setup and look for the detection of the HDD and the size it shows once you have done a formating.

Vista 64 bit shows issues at times while installing a new SATA 1TB HDD. Check if the 1TB HDD is installed on to SATA 0.

Use a WD Disk Manager and format the HDD initially and then try install Vista on to it. Else if this doesnt work on the system, Put the HD on to another working system and Format it with NTFS File system and try installing Vista.. You will be successful. Good Luck.

New ASUS A8V-MX motherboard will not boot to CD or HD with XP


The first thing is to make sure that your CD/DVD drive has the windows disk in it. Also check drive C which is where the windows will be installed. It may require that it is hard formated. Hard formatted means "format x /u" [format-space-drive to be formatted-space-right slash-u]. This will place the drive for "windows xp sp2", all of it, to one pass of zeroes. So, once we have a clean drive C and the installation disc is inserted into the CD/DVD drive, you may proceed to install. You will need to find "install" or "setup" and start it on he "RUN" mode. Any questions or help get back to me. CONSTANTIN (arzconst)
