Hi, First of all I would check they are both connected. However it's quite unlikely they've managed to both disconnect themselves at the same time.
Assuming they are both connected ok I would first remove one or the other, then enter your BIOS to see whether the remaining device is detected. As these devices will often be run by the same controller, if one is faulty it could cause the controller problems and in turn it would fail to detect the healthy device. If you can now see the remaining device in the BIOS you can be left almost certain that the removed component is at fault.
Should the BIOS still fail to detect anything this could indicate a controller failure on the mainboard. To help confirm this I would try and connect a drive or ROM that you know is healthy and see if they detect in the BIOS. Another way to help confirm this would be to boot from a USB device into some kind of OS (Windows, Ubuntu etc) and see if the controller is detected by the OS. If it doesn't detect the controller this would be further evidence it has failed.

In a situation where the controller has failed it is often best to pursue replacing the mainboard in the laptop. However it can often be more economical to replace the entire machine.

SOURCE: Lenovo C100 will not boot to bootable CD

Hello brush71, it most likely is.
I suggest going to BIOS and trying to enable the cd drive.
If not possible, perhaps there is a hardware failure.
As you've described a problem with the Hard-Drive as well, I would suggest, if warranty is still applicable, to turn to your nearest Lenovo lab and have the computer fixed.

SOURCE: i have lenovo Y410 laptop i have deleted all the

did you recreate the partitions you deleted? sounds like there's not a partition on the drive. when you boot the machine press the F1 key. that will take you to the system bios.. then press F9 .. that will set the bios to the factory default settings.. then press F10 that will save and exit the bios. If you have a partition and its set active..you should be able to procede from there. If you continue to egt the error message.. you need to verify the part5ition is valid and active. formatted would help as well..

Go into the BIOS setting abd check it the BIOS detects the hard disk and CD/DVD drive.
If it detects these drives then go to the boot device order and select the CD as the first boot device then the hard disk as the 2nd boot device.

How to install windows it's showing there is no hard disk in the system pls help me


If the BIOS does not detect the hard disk, then reseat the hard disk and then check the BIOS again.
The hard disk maybe faulty, if so you need a replacement.
If the BIOS detects the hard disk and you are installing Windows XP then -
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

I have hp pavilion dv 2000 laptop, during windows xp installtion the massage comes that setup didn't find hard disc drive installed in your computer. what is the problem???


Here is the User Guide http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01035657.pdf
Most likely the hard drive is bad.
To check power on the computer and enter BIOS by pressing F10 (Just keep hitting F10 until it enters BIOS)
Go to the system configuration menu And boot options, if no hard drive is listed then it is bad and needs to be replaced. You can attempt to unscrew the back pull out the hard drive and re seat it(plug it back in)
Also in BIOS check for Enhanced SATA mode and make sure it is off or in compatibility mode. Windows XP never shipped with SATA support and will result in a blue screen error during install. So turn off enhanced sata mode and it will run as an old IDE interface so to speak.

I have a note that says, " no bootable device found, please insert bootable disk then press any key",


The laptop cannot find the boot hard drive, it may be faulty or just need reseating to make proper electrical connection.
First - re-seat the harddisk and 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. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Hello,

all you have to do is to simply set the jumper at the back of he hard disk, beside where the IDE cable and power enter into the hard disk.

Just keep setting till you put at the right position where the system recognizes it.

There is nothing wrong with your PC and hard drive, just set the jumper of the Hard disk and that should be all.

Take care.

System failure to boot


  1. Verify that your hard disk drive is setup and detected properly in BIOS. You're computer should list a hard disk drive installed either under the main page or the drives page in BIOS. If BIOS indicates the drive is not installed or not detected skip to Hard Disk drive is bad or not connected properly.
  2. Verify the boot options are properly set in BIOS, almost all BIOS setups should contain options specifying how your computer boots. For example, most computers should have their boot options setup similar to the below example.

    - Floppy drive
    - CD drive
    - Hard drive
  3. Rest your BIOS to default values. Many BIOS will enable users to reset the values to the default settings. If you've tried the above options without success try resetting the BIOS.

Os instalation will not load


Hi Dobssand, the most common reason for a CD-ROM (With a Windows CD in it) does not start to load is the motherboard's bios is not set correctly. While in the bios go to the title Boot & enter boot order. This is a common boot order for a PC.
1st boot device = [Floppy disk drive]
2nd boot device = [CD-ROM drive] (Model number of the CD-ROM drive).
3rd boot device = [Primary Hard Disk Drive] (Model number of drive).

Second most common reason is the data cable to the CD-ROM drive is loose or not fully connected either at the CD-ROM or at the motherboard. (Check it).
If you choose not to enter your bios, you can still get the CD-ROM drive to boot the Win CD in this fashion. Load the Win CD into the CD-ROM drive. Power off the system. Than power on the system & start to press the F8 key once every two seconds. Windows "Please select boot device:" window will open. Using your keyboards up & down arrow keys high-light the CD-ROM drive that has the win CD in it & press the enter key. Windows should start to load. If you receive an error message stating windows can not find your hard disk drive. Than you must enter your bios & go to the title Boot. Your hard disk drive is not listed in the boot order section. Worst case! Your hard disk drive may be faulty. Find the manufactures name printed on a large white sticker on once side of the HDD. Go to the manufactures web site & download their drive setup software so you can create a bootable floppy disk. This will allow you to check/test the HDD & format it for a windows installation.

Or is this not the issue you are having?

Good luck!
Mike
