Just google your drive's make and model and search the results for a diagram of the jumper settings.
If you have a SATA drive, there ARE no jumpers. If the drive is a PATA, then if it's connected with another drive or cdrom, then make the cdrom 'slave' and the disk drive 'master'.
Check your bios setting sometimes bios changes the boot order esp. if bios doesn't find a boot disk- make sure you have your desired boot device showing in the boot setup.

There should be a diagram showing how you should set the jumper. Set it according to what you want it to be and it should begin to should up. You can set it as Master, Slave, or Cable Select.

  1. Serial ATA:  If you have a 3.0 Gbit/sec SATA drive that is not being detected by your 1.5Gb/sec SATA controller, or it causes your system to lock up when connected to a 1.5 Gbit/sec SATA controller, you may need to jumper your 3.0 Gbit/sec SATA drive to the slower speed of 1.5 Gbit/sec for the system to recognize it properly. For further information on changing the jumper setting to slow down your SATA drive's transfer rate, please see Document ID: 193775
    -48-8s.jpg -- (Click to expand) Jumper settings for Seagate SATA drives 
    -48-9s.jpg -- (Click to expand) Jumper settings for Maxtor-brand SATA drives 

    ATA:  It is recommended that all Seagate ATA hard disks supporting the Cable Select jumper option be configured as Cable Select. If your computer system was built prior to October 1998 and does not support UDMA 66 or greater you will be required to use the Master/Slave jumper settings.

    -48-11s.jpg -- (Click to expand) Jumper settings for Maxtor-brand ATA drives 

    When using Cable Select jumper settings on your ATA drive, all devices connected to the UDMA cable must also use the Cable Select setting. The cable decides master/slave device detection when the cable select jumper settings are used. Please consult Document ID: 196299 for further instructions. 

  2. Faulty Hard Drive

    If you have completed the above checks and procedures and the drive is still not properly detected, please attempt to use Seatools for DOS (see the tutorial here) to test the drive.  If SeaTools does not detect the drive after the steps followed above, or an error code that signifies drive failure displays, please proceed to the our Warranty Services page to begin a warranty replacement order.

I need to know the jumper setting for my hard drive to set it to a slave


Here is the jumper settings for Samsung hard drives. Assuming that your hard drive is bigger than 32GB you have to use the "General Pin Setting"

Note that after changing the jumper, it's suggested to partition and format your hard disk drive.

How do i install this drive?


Unplug the power cable from your power supply and open up your computer Don't forget to wear your antistatic wrist band. Determine which drive bay you are going to install a CD-ROM into. You should pick on of the uppermost drive bays. Before you install a CD-ROM, make sure you have the proper jumper settings. Since we are only installing a single CD-ROM, set the jumpers as MASTER. The jumper settings are different for each CD-ROM drive, so consult your owner's manual so you know which pins to cover up. Once you have the jumpers set, install your CD-ROM in the computer's case. How you secure the CD-ROM in one of the uppermost drive bays depends on your case. Some CD-ROM drives have to be screwed into the drive bay, while other cases come with brackets (like mine) to attach to the CD-ROM drive so that it slides into the drive bay and locks in place.


Connect the power to the back of the CD-ROM drive, then connect the ribbon cable to the back of the CD-ROM drive. Your ribbon cable has three connectors, one in the middle and one on each end. The middle connector is a "SLAVE" connector that is used if you would install an additional CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
Connect one of the end connectors to the CD-ROM drive, and connect the other end connector to the appropriate spot on your motherboard. Note, hard drives and CD-ROM drives have the same style of connector on the motherboard. You want to connect your CD-ROM drive to the motherboard slot that isn't red or is the highest numbered of all the IDE slots.





Power on your computer after you plug it in. Your computer should recognize the new CD-ROM. If it doesn't, Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
Hope this helps

Won't boot from dvd or hard drive, changed hard drives and still won't boot


Depends on what you mean by won't boot from DVD or Hard Drive,
it sounds like your boot order is what you're looking for help for.

To do this you need to get into your computers BIOS (or "Setup")
You can do this by rebooting the computer and the very very very first screen you see tells you how,
usually by pressing DEL or F2 or F10.

Without knowing the specific computer you're looking for help on I can only point you in the right direction however keep in mind the BIOS is for advanced users only and you can damage your computer by randomly changing settings.

What you're looking for though is usually called the Boot Order or Boot Sequence
You'll need to set whatever device you want to boot from higher on the list (usually with the up arrow or PgUp)
If you don't see your device on the boot list then it may not be detected due to failure.

I just wiped the hard drive of my gateway ta7 and the windows cd says it does not find any discs to install on.... i don't have any manufacturer discs available, any way around this?


Did you format it? if not do it using a utility CD. Also try to see if the BIOS recognize the drive - if not maybe you need to "push in" the connector (data and electric). If none of the above works - maybe it is a time to purchase a new drive :-(

If it's not detecting the OS on your internal hard drive, I would guess that it needs to be replaced.
Concerning your lack of a CD drive, With netbooks, a USB external DVD drive is a must have. If you don't have one, and don't have the means to get one right now, try asking around with other people who also use netbooks. They will likely own one that you can use.

I just bought a harddrive because my old drive went. so I hooked up the new drive and turned it on, but i get nothing but a blank screen


hi there,
please unplug new harddrive and see if computer boots up without it.
if it does list all the other cd/dvd drives, then you did someth. wrong upon installing the new drive.hook up again, see the jumper settings in the back(must be set to single ) if attached to 1st IDE-channel, else if you hook it up to a cd-drive, set jumper on cd to master, onharddisk to slave, check power connection, reassemble pc, boot up.
Got a screen now? hdd should belisted! now insert windows installation cd and proceed...

if system still does not recognize the drive, then enter BIOS(press F2 or Del or F1 during booting)set all drive detection to automatic, leave saving BIOS-settings, press F10), reboot.

Problem solved?else come back on fixya.Good Luck

I have a problem


Take the cover of your computer off again and check all the cables again. Check the cables going to the hard drive. Make sure there is no disk in the drive. If you have a floppy disk drive, make sure there is no disk in it. Make sure the jumper is set properly on the back of the cd-rom drive. The jumper should set to 'slave' or 'cd'. In some cases the jumper should be off. Let me know if this helps.
