The hard drive has to be fdisked and formatted on the laptop to function. If you don't have an internal floppy, I use an external USB drive plugged into the laptop to do the job.

CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS ERROR ON MY PC "INSERT BOOT MEDIA IN SELECTED BOOT DEVICE AND PRESS ANY KEY" my motherboard is "P5GZ-MX X-SERIES" solution I have done so far is...


if you took out the hard drive that was in there, there will be no operating system for the computer to boot from, thats why you are getting that error, if you still have the old hard drive in the system and added the new one to it, you may have to go to the boot section in the bios and change the first boot device to the old hard drive..

ONE BAD LEAD?

try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive one bad lead will cause a computer to shut down

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

hope this helps

Cannot replace corrupted bios, wont recognise hard drive. no windows installed, blank hd. how can i install a new bios direct to the mb using dvd drive?


A motherboard must have a working BIOS, because the BIOS (Basic Input-output system) contains the instructions that get the computer started enough to be able to turn on the hard drive and the CD drive (and the floppy). A search online should yield a service that can install a bios, or yield a place where you could buy a pre-flashed bios chip for your motherboard. This is step one. Once you have this, you can do all other installs, assuming that the motherboard is ok. Good luck.

Gigabyte K8vm800M Motherboard Does Not Recognise Seagate SATA HDD


I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM IN THE PAST. I REPLACE THE IDE HDD WITH SATA AND AFTER I BOOT IT SAYS NO HARDDISK. IT IS BECAUSE WINDOWS XP HAS NO BUILT IN SATA DRIVER.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IS CHANGE YOUR HARDDISK TO IDE OR INTEGRATE A SATA DRIVER INTO YOUR XP (USE NLITE) OR USE THE FLOPPY DRIVE TO RUN SATA DRIVER ITS INCLUDED IN THE MOBO WHEN BUYING.

Motherboard won't recognize more than 32 gigs of hard drive


this is old pc or bios, the reason it doesn't recognise a larger hard drive is because the bios doesn't support 64bit addressing, therefore you need a bios flash to update it. i need the motherboards full model number and i can see if i can locate one for you

Unrecognized HDD-- need help!


You could also try setting the jumper on the hard drive to "limit to 1.5gb/s".
