Sounds like the 160gb drive has some issues ...bad clusters etc ... if it keeps happening you can be sure the drive will fail soon.

I would look to replace the drive as soon as possible. If it's less than a yar old you should be able to get it replaced under warranty.

Internal hard drives should only be opened in a clean room. If I understand you correctly this drive is bound to fail. Suggestion: Start moving files onto other space.

Turned off raid, unable to access 2nd 160 gig hard


Right click on Computer in the Start menu. You should see manage.
click on manage and you will see some selections the left one called disk management. click that and you should see all your drives. If you disable the Raid you may have to initialize the disk for windows to use it again. right click on the drive and initialize or if it shows up you may have to create a partition and then format.

IS THERE ANY replacements for YH278 HITACHI 120 GB SATA HARD DRIVE HTS541612J9SA00, THAT IS CAN I REPLACE WITH 250GB.


Generally speaking, you can replace any SATA hard drive with any other SATA hard drive. Notebook SATA drives are all the same size, basically, (2.5 inch), and desktop drives are generally the same size (3.5 inch), Desktop and notebook SATA drives will connect to the same power and interface cables, though desktop drives require more power. Just make sure that you pick a 2.5" drive for your notebook, or 3.5" drive for your desktop, and the drive will attach with no problems.

As for the size of the drive, to my knowledge, any system with SATA should support any size SATA drive (I put a 500 gig drive in my notebook, where the stock drive was 160 gig).

F7 hard drive problem the PC has two 360 gig hard drives. Which one is the primary? Will a WD serial # WCAV 5463220018 3.5 inch SATA hard drive 1000 Gbyte be compatible with my PC?


If your PC has SATA connections yes you can use SATA, but not a SATA 2.5 which only fits a laptop! When you use 2 drives one must be set by jumpers on rear of drive to master..... the slave drive (2nd hard drive) must also be set to slave by same jumpers.

Satelite M40 Boot problems


Hi there,

It sounds like your hdd. If you have access to another computer, download a program called SeaTools for DOS, from the Seagate website:
http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools

This program will make a boot disc that will check ALL sectors on the drive. If bad sectors are found, you will be given the option to fix.

Let me know how you get on.

Service pack3 crashed puter - after reinstall machine thinks extra hard drive is a disk drive.


You can get to the BIOS by hitting DEL or F2 at start up.

However, that does not have anything to do with a drive letter.

Drive letter designation is set in
START>SETTINGS>CONTROL PANEL>ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS>COMPUTER MANAGEMENT>DISK MANAGEMENT.

Hope this helps.
