Hi, Have you checked the boot sequence in bios? Make sure it is booting from the hard drive first. If that still doesn't work, maybe it's because this is a different motherboard that you are installing the hard drive to. You might need to obtain a win xp cd and perform a repair of the Operating System or just wipe all data off (if you don't need any on it) and do a fresh install of windows xp.

Where to find the reset button on my packard bell pc hard drive

Click on the "Start" button and input "Recovery" into the search box. Click on "Recovery Manager."

Click on the "Advanced Options" button when the Windows recovery manager appears. Choose the "System Recovery" option from the list and click on "Next."

Click "No" to decline using the Microsoft system restore and click "Next." Note that HP computers have their own restore system.

Click on "Back up your files first (recommended)." Click on "Next." Follow the instructions given to you by the recovery manager for backing up your files.

This is your opportunity to back up any important or original files before you reset the HP computer to its original settings.

Save these files to removable storage devices such as DVD disks, CD disks, alternative hard drives (that you are not performing a system reset on) or flash drives.

Click on "Next" when the screen reads "Recover without backing up your files." Note that after you proceed with this step, you will lose any and all information on your Hard Drive that you did not back up.

Restart your computer after it has finished the recovery procedure. Visit the HP Support and drivers website and click on the option that says "Download drivers and software (and firmware)." Enter your computer model number (find this on the front of your tower) and press "Enter."

Download the most recent drivers and save them on your desktop. Double-click the driver package and follow the on-screen instructions to install the drivers.

Insert your removable storage device that contains the files that you backed up. Copy the files to the appropriate places on your hard drive.

hope this helps

Transfer your data over from the old hard drive to the new computer

The easiest way is to connect the old hard drive to an USB adapter case and make it an USB external hard drive. Connect this to the USB port on your new computer, the computer will see the external hard drive as an External storage device. You can then open the various folder on the hard drive and copy the files to your new computer.
You can delete all the unnecessary folders and files off the old hard drive and use it as a backup storage device.

HDD failure problem, can't start windows, keep restarting.. I have important data on the HD, can I recover the ata?

Best way to recover your stuff is to get the hard drive out of the laptop. To do this, you will have to unscrew a couple of screws on the bottom of the laptop to get access to the hard drive. After that, you can uninstall the hard drive from the laptop, & take it with you to a computer accessories shop. There they can assist you in purchasing an external box which fits the type of interface of your hard drive (either IDE or SATA). You can then install your hard drive inside this box, & then attach the box to a USB port in your current laptop. This way, the old hard drive will behave like an external storage device (similar to a USB flash stick), & you can then pull out your old data from the hard drive. Moreover, you will have an external portable storage device.

My Lacie hard drive is not working

It Seems to me like when you unpluged it without properly ejecting it, that it partly corrupted the part of the ext. hard drive that is recignised by the pc to then recignise it and make it ready for you to use.

If it uses a power adpter to power it plug that in first, then plug it into you computer, and see if that works.
I hope I helped.
