Hard drive not recognized

Hello I have a toshiba satellite 1400-S151. The hard drive failed. It was an ibm hard drive. I was given a toshiba MK2018GAP ATA hard drive. However the hard drive is not recognized in bios. I've also tried to reinstall windows on this drive but hard disk not recognized so installation does not work. Do I need a special driver for this? I've also tried to install several linux distributions. Some will run live from the cd, but none will install on the new used hard drive. any help is appreciated

Format your hard drive completly with this http://www.killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm
you have to create a boot cd with this software.
once formated reinstall your OS.

But if bios does not see this HD it it's also mean that is dead.

I broken my recovery and applications/drive cd satellite 1400, num two.


If you live in the USA and have a Staples near by you can have them order replacement recovery CD/DVDs for about $30 (It takes about 5 to 7 business days).
You should be able to call TOSHIBA also but, I do not know how much they charge for recovery CD/DVDs.

Toshiba Satellite 1400-S151 has no hard drive and no dc adapter


It appears that the computer you bought on EBay only has the Windows opertating system installed. Did the seller give you a full specification and configuration including installed software? What other parts are missing? As for an Internet connection, you need a network card and an Internet Service Provider, have you arranged for this?

New RAM for Satellite 1400 won't work


Hi this problem has arisen on both desktops as well as laptops, the reason for it is quite simple. a lot of the RAM available on the market now is HIGH DENSITY RAM and unless your satellite is specificaly designed to run high density RAM it will not recognize it.
You will find all the major RAM brands are low density and will work fine. A brand like Kingston is an ideal option.
