My dard disc wont detict


When installing a new hard drive, a PC may not recognize the hard drive. Incorrect cable installations, jumper settings and BIOS settings may cause the computer to be unable to detect your hard drive. Due to the vast differences in hard drive types (IDE versus SATA) and brands, motherboard brands and types, and BIOS types and configurations, please download or acquire your motherboard and hard drive manufacturers' documentation prior to acquiring a hard drive. Make sure that the type of hard drive you plan to purchase is compatible with the motherboard.
Shut down the computer. Unplug all cables and peripheral devices. Clip the anti-static wrist bracelet to a metal object, and attach the bracelet to your wrist. Remove the computer's side panel. (Cases vary. Some will require a small Phillips screwdriver for removal and others feature screwless designs. Please see your case manual if you are unsure.) Locate the newly installed hard drive. Check that two cables are running from the hard drive to the motherboard and to the power supply. If you see only one cable or if either of the cables are not securely seated, plug in the appropriate connector(s). Leave the case's side panel off for now. Reconnect the power cable, monitor cable, and keyboard and mouse connections. Restart the computer. Enter your BIOS immediately. (Your BIOS usually alerts you to the key required to adjust settings. If your screen does not show this information or if you are unsure, consult your motherboard manual.) If it is an IDE hard drive, enter the IDE settings. The BIOS should show the hard drive. Configure it as primary or secondary, according to your computer's configuration. (If you have only one drive, set this to primary. Otherwise, set as secondary.) Save your settings, and exit the BIOS. Once you are certain that the the PC is recognizing the hard drive, replace the side panel. Detect a SATA Hard Disk If you have connected a SATA (serial ATA) hard drive to your computer but are not able to access the files on it, then your system may not be detecting the drive correctly. On either a PC or Mac computer, you can manually detect and mount a hard drive that is locally connected. Once properly detected, the drive will become available for file transfer.
Plug the SATA hard drive firmly into your PC computer and ensure that the drive is powered on. Open the Start menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon. Open the "Administrative Tools" folder and double-click on the "Computer Management" icon. Go to the "Disk Management" tool on the left side of the control panel window. This brings up a list of all drives currently connected to your computer. Right-click on the SATA drive that you want your computer to detect and choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths." Click on the "Add" button and then select the drive letter that you want to be assigned to the SATA hard drive. Click "OK" to save the settings and detect the SATA drive. b> Mac Instructions b> Plug the SATA hard drive firmly into your Mac computer and ensure that the drive is powered on. Open a new Finder window and navigate to the "Utilities" folder, which is located in the "Applications" section of the Mac hard drive. Double-click on the "Disk Utility" icon. Highlight the SATA hard drive that you want your computer to detect from the list of connected drives on the left side of the window. Click on the "Mount" button at the top of the window to have the system manually detect the SATA drive. Hope this helps.

Hello, Where could I find a driver for WD5000KS SATA? I am trying to upgrade my desktop PC to Win 7 but when installing it, the setup could not detect the SATA HDD and asked me to load the HDD driver. ...


Check in your BIOS,first make sure the SATA controller is set to native mode and not RAID, and secondly that the BIOS can detect the drive, if the drive can't be detected by the BIOS then it's because the drive surpasses the boards drive size limitation.; If this is the case there is a chance a BIOS update may fix it but it's not guaranteed it will.

Boot device not detect


Your PC is trying to boot from your external hard/flash drive.

You have to change the boot order in the bios. While booting what the screen, you'll see a message "Select F2 for boot or DEL/F10 for setup"

Go for the setup option, this will take you into the bios. Read the instructions carefully, you need to change to boot order, choose CD for 1, HDD0 for 2 anything you like for third. Press F10 to save and exit. Your
PC should now boot properly.

Or, as its just a flash drive, don't plug it in until your PC has booted.

Hard drive not detected


Your bios should show the installed drives. So we are clear it is actually the BIOS we are discussing - the bios is reached by pressing F1 usually when the machine is first started. Hardware is different - it is reached via control panel after windows is running. If the BIOS shows the drive as installed and windows does not see it - then the problem is that the drive has no partition or is not formatted correctly. Partition the drive first, then format it and windows will then "see" it and identify it.
If the BIOS of the machine cannot "see" the drive and list it - possibly the cabling or jumper setting is wrong, for example you cannot install two master drives or two slave drives on the same cable. If they are both new and you are trying to put them both on the same controller at the same time one will have to be changed. Another possibility is that the controller is disabled in the BIOS, it will not see a drive then either. If the bios does not "see" the drive at all after these steps - the drive is likely defective. Most drives without a "driver" if working correctly will install as a generic drive and appear in windows.Installing the correct Motherboard drivers such as Intel Chipset drivers from the Intel site will then allow the bios after booting to correctly ID the drive and install drivers if it needs them. Intel has a Chip Utility which will ID your board chipset to get the correct drivers for it. You might also try enabling or disabling the plug and play OS option in the bios. When plug and play is enabled bios settings can be altered by windows, when disabled (non plugplay) windows works around what the bios tells windows it has for hardware to install other devices.

Hard Disk and Booting issue


go into your BIOS and on the bottom of your screen there should be a (last good config) of (fail-safe config) value for one or=f the F1 to F12 buttons. also. are you running a 4gb hdd??? or is that a typo? anyhow, XP REQUIRES 2GB at all times free if your hdd is running at less that that (cause its full) your boot up could be messed around. finally make sure that the little plug on your hdd is across the Master or cable select pins not the slave as this can cause probs too. good luck.
