Question about HP Pavilion a350n PC Desktop
I see a loose white cable but I don't know if it goes to hard drive or not. The computer is Windows XP HP Pavillion a4350N and I just get black screen that says reboot or boot with disk and when I try to boot with dick it says it cannot find hard drive.
Usually the white connectors are from the power supply for additional plug-ins. If the Hard Drive has two cables hooked into it and you can trace one to the power supply and one to the motherboard then it is connected. If everything is connected, try a different connector from the Power Supply. If that doesn't work it could be the connecting cable from the HD to the mother board, or it could be the HD has failed.

If Safe Mode also fails to load, you would have to check your disk for errors or you may have to install XP all over again.
Please get back, if you need any further help.

First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:
Click "Start" button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar and press "Enter". Click "Continue" if necessary.
In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".
Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".
Then, restart your computer and Windows 7 will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.
click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X
you will need to update/reinstall drivers
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems to a computer and its parts
hope this helps
