Assuming this is a desktop computer, open the case and check that the cables are plugged into the hard disk and the motherboard fully, they can sometimes come loose.
If this is a laptop you could try removing and then putting the disk back in, but these are sometimes more delicate connectors, make sure you don't snap anything!

Replacement cpu


Depends what the motherboard is. If you can find the make and model number on the board you can usually go to the manufactures website and see which processors are compatible. Sometimes it's not worth it if it's quite an old board as the difference would'nt be that great. Adding extra ram, a better graphics card and faster hard drive can inprove performance.

The Hard Drive has jammed/seized up. Is making a clicking noise and will no start up.


A clicking sound from a hard drive is one sound you never want to hear. It means the hard drive has failed. Replace it.

Wont show hard drive


First - re-seat the harddisk (to ensure the hard disk is properly connected to the motherboard) and then reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to determine if thehard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. The hard drive needs to bereplaces in the laptop and Windows installed and the laptop's device driversand your programs etc to get a functioning laptop again.

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.

WANT INSSTALL FRESH COPY OF WINDOWS XP BUT IT DOSEN;T FIND THE HARD DISK


Is this hard drive a SATA hard drive?
If it is a SATA hard drive Windows won't detect the hard drive because the Windows XP installation CD has not got a SATA driver.
To install Windows on a SATA hard drive, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

If the hard drive is a IDE drive then, the hard drive may be faulty, especially if the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive.

P4pe x cannot detect hhd drive


If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive then :-
1. The hard drive data cable or power connector may not be inserted properly.
2. The motherboard disk controller is faulty.
3 The hard disk is faulty.

To test the motherboard disk controller, connect another hard disk to the motherboard and go into the BIOS to see if it detects the hard drive.
If it detects the hard drive, then the other hard drive is faulty and need to be replaced.
Another way to test the "faulty" hard drive, connect the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files the the hard disk is OK, and the fault is a faulty disk controller on the motherboard.

Pc will not boot, it can not see hard drive. tried new hard drive but no good. The hard drive works in other computer. the hard drive can not be detected in BIOS.


Try switching the eide ribbons from the CDrom to the hard drive. Sometimes, the computer tries to read the cdrom as the primary and the hard drive as the slave. I generally just leave the CDrom out, place the hard drive in with ribbon and let it register in bios.

System wont boot up


Have you done any setup to the new hard drive? Any new hard drive will come with no data on it. This means you will have to reinstall windows onto the new hard drive, or copy windows from your old hard drive(if it still boots up) using the CD that came with the hard drive. If your hard drive didn't come with the software, post which hard drive you have, and I can give you the link to download it.
Try and find the Windows CD's that came with your computer, and use them to reinstall it. If this was a name brand computer (like dell, or HP), then it will have come with some CD's (usually). Sometimes the restore is built into the old hard drive :-)
If this was a clone computer, you should have a legal copy of windows that was given to you.
