make sure that the HDD IDE cable is plugged in properly on both ends. It is a
40 pin female cord which should be seated on IDE channel 1 on the motherboard.
2) Make sure that all the CD/DVD drives are on IDE
2 or on SATA
3) Make sure taht the Jumper setting on the back
of the HDD is set to MASTER
4) Login to bios and make see if you can find the
HDD from the IDE drives menu. I am sure you will. From Boot menu select the
NATIVE mode that will activate both the SATA and the IDE channels. Select HDD
as second boot device.
hi im josh in cebu phils.Friend if that happens whrein your 2nd hdd dont detect. Try to use these solutions. Check first the jumper of the hardisk whether it is stated as slave or master. if 2nd disk is master the jumper should be in the master and if it is slave the jumper must be slave. or try to use another IDE cable. put them as both master the first hdd in first ide slot and your 8 GB 2nd hardisk in 2nd slot as master also. or try to enter bios setup utility then try to check or detect the both device.thats all good luck
On Seagate's website, they should have a drive transfer software to transfer everything over to a new drive. There are commercial drive clone applications too, like Paragon Drive Copy which you can find with Google.
For the laptop with no hard drive detected, this is most likely because Windows XP does not recognize SATA drives by default, which the laptop most likely has. To solve this, you will need to enter the BIOS setup utility (most likely Delete or F1 on startup). From there, you will need to change the drive mode to Compatibility mode. I'm not sure where this would be, but if you check in your laptop manual, you can probably find this somewhere.
For the 2519TU, download and install this for the LAN driver: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp30001-30500/sp30264.exe it should work just fine.
Please help me, I bought a HP Pavillion dv2000 Laptop which came with a built-in Windows Vista. Thats cool, but the problem arises when I try to install windows XP. After inserting the Windows XP SP2 CD and after primary driver loading it is unable to detect my harddisk
You query did not give any clues abt the PC/Motherboard and its BIOS revision.
That said if the PC/BIOS will not "see" the HDD then its is unlikely a cause of a virus.
Some old motherboards can't recognise a HDD if its size is more than 137GB. Some older motherboard also require than you set the HDD jumper correctly (Master or Slave).
At this stage, i am assuming the HDD in question is PATA or IDE (Old Spec). If the HDD is SATA (New Spec), then you will need a SATA port to connect the HDD. Ensure not to use both "old" molex power connector and "newer" SATA power connector together.
If the HDD is SATAII but the SATA spec for your motherboard is SATAI (initial spec), some motherboards and SATAII drives require that you jumper the HDD to allow it to work at the lower SATA speed.
If none of the above points apply try upgrading your system BIOS of the latest version. Also review the mortarboard's manual for more info.
