MOBO DEATH X-|

I unplugged my hard drive (1 of 2) and the SATA cable (with other words, both cables). Is it possible that this might have caused a power surge to my mobo?

Bios setup does not show sata HD windos xp find them


Hi,
I have had problems like this many times with some of my IBM machines. What i find most often the reason the bios will not recognize them is because the hard drive has gone bad.
Troubleshooting 1. Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from motherboard and hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable back into the motherboard and into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot computer and enter bios(by pressing F8, Enter, Del ect..) Does the hard drive show in there now?
2. If you have another hard drive.
Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot up the computer and enter the bios. Does this hard drive show in the bios? If so then i would say that your original hard drive has gone bad.

Trying to change out power supply on a Gateway DX4822-01. Can hear hard drive spinning, but not getting anything on screen. Unplugged it yesterday. Now wondering if one of the 4-pin needs top be...


Trying the easiest solution first - It sounds as if the power is getting to the hard drive, but the information is not getting to the computer.

Is the IDE/SATA cable attached to the hard drive AND the motherboard?

Are the connections tight?

Is one end of the cable reversed - does pin 1 on the hard drive correspond to pin 1 on the motherboard?

Are the jumper settings on the hard drive set properly - Master/Slave/Cable select?

Are you replacing an IDE hard drive (uses a wide thin ribbon cable) with a SATA drive (uses a narrow, fatter cable). Can your motherboard handle a SATA drive? Perhaps you are trying to install the incorrect hard drive?

Ive built my first pc and all went well until the message no hard drive detected comes on all parts are new so any help would be great in fixing this thanks dave


Verify that the hard disk is connected on both data and power cables and is receiving power (it hums at startup); also that the proper EIDE or SATA slot on the motherboard is used, and properly jumpered (e.g. a SATA 2 disk on a SATA 1 configured port is likely to malfunction).

Check that the BIOS is configured to autodetect the hard disk type, and is using the appropriate adapter (EIDE or SATA port), without RAID options or such.

In a pinch, try also ignoring the motherboard labels (e.g., plug the hard disk on the fourth SATA port instead of the first -- the mobo numbering is not always the "logical" one, even if it usually should be.

good day sir, hi, its either your motherboard does not support 2 sata drives simultaneously or your motherboard sata port is bugged.
Choices:
1. get a bigger hard drive
2. use a PCI to SATA card for your extra SATA hard drive.
3. replace your motherboard.

Hope this may help.

If I bought a SATA dvd drive, where would I connect it to? Does it take SATA dvd, or does it still need to use IDE only?


This MoBo has 4 SATA connectors. Assuming you have one or two hard drives just plug it into one of the spare ports. If you are unsure, carefully follow the data cable from a hard drive to the MoBo to find the ports.

1 Solution for ''I have a Compaq Presario 7000 replacing the C harddrive the BIOS set up does not find harddrive''


possible causes:
1. jumper set incorrectly on hard drive itsself.
2. data or power cable not connected properly to hard drive
3. data cable backwards in hard drive or motherboard. (should always have the red stripe on the data cable towards the power connector on the hard drive and on pin number one of the motherboards' primary IDE connector)
check all off these...IF you are installing a SATA hard drive then you may need to install sata drivers on your computer.. Please post again if i misunderstood your question..
Regards......

Dll gx280 case


first off does the motherboard have both sata and ide connections or just sata or just ide? (sata are small about maybe 1/2 inches in length and 1 mm wide and a ide connection is approx 5 inches long with about 4 inches long with over 100 pins and about 1/2 inches wide) i know that the opliplex 520 are nothing but sata so if it uses the same mobo as the 520 and you have ide then its imposible to install on your computer unless it either has a ide connection or you get a ide pci or pci-e controller card and install that onto the computer. but for the most part a ide connection needs a ide cable and a sata connection needs a sata cable.
