Maybe if you can format the disk-but you loose data, maybe there is a program that can do it, probably in linux, or bootable itself, maybe ask acer for master password or something, if you still own original laptop and it runs then try to remove disk encryption while the hdd is accessible with laptop (i think its in bios), otherwise the hdd may be unusable to prevent data theft. you can plug any sata hdd into any sata device if you can hook all the cables, no compatibility issues there. try googling and youtubing for more answers
This usually happens when u fit any hardware to the system....The information which u gave seems its "Blue Screen of Death" or "BSOD" ........ if u have seen this screen only after u plugged in yr HDD, try with other HDD. Perhaps there might be an error with the HDD which u have plugged in.
try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this program to recover your files. http://www.asoftech.com/adr/
First u check the laptop Display
if it has display, thn it might be problem ur windows
instead of it.
if computer does not give display thn u check the power adopter of ur laptop.
after all gonig through these steps.even u find all these above steps perfect.
it will mean,
it might be problem of ur hardware.
lets check out it by ur computer vendor.
I am assuming that you are installing the Western Digital WD2500SB as a second Hard Disk in your Dell 8300. If it is connected along the same flat IDE cable as you old/original HD (Primary Master), you need to move the jumper in the WD for it to be as the Primary Slave. Instructions and illustrations are normally printed on the sticker atop the HD. If you are connecting it to the 2nd (Secondary) IDE, pls verify that it is not in conflict to any other device attached to it such as your CD/DVD. At any time, only 1 can be a master and the second device be the slave.
To verify that indeed your wiring/jumper and settings are correct, you can go to BIOS/CMOS setup immediately after powerup and determine if your PC has auto detected the new HD as well as the old/original HD & CD/DVD.
If for wahtever reason, the PC will not auto detect the new (Western Digital WD2500SB) HD and since it is new then, it should still be covered by the warranty and you can ask for a replacement.
If on the other handyou would want it to the the primary master and you would like to run your PC's OS on that new HD, you would need a CD installer/recovery to re-install the operating system.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Hi, Firstly have you recently installed this CDROM or has the problem suddenly occured on a previously working CDROM?
If it was previously working then perhaps the CD has faulted somehow, if you open the PC and unplug the drive and carefully re-plug it again and then reboot the system. Before you open any machine though make sure you are not going to void any warranty that you may have with your machine when you purchased it.
If it still does not work unplug the drive and uninstall the driver and reboot the system then trun it off again and then attache the drive again and see if Windows picks it up.
You could also try using another ribbon cable, ( the one that attaches the drive to the motherboard) as sometimes these fail too.
If you need any other help with this just let me know.
Possibly 2 reasons: 1. A tweaking utility (such as TweakUI) was used to remove drive letter assignment. You need to use the same utility to restore it back; 2. USB port error which could either be software or hardware: 2.1 Software - try uninstalling all instances of the USB in your Device Manager, reboot. Windows will autodetect and auto reinstall; 2.2 Hardware - the port(s) could be faulty which could either be the +5V supply (which would mean a burnt surface mounted fuse or fusible link) or the I/O where the data pins go to.
If you have other USB devices and they work, then chances are it's #1; if they also do not work then it's #2
Hope this be of some help. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
