Is it a DESKTOP or LAPTOP ?
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes. If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. Check the memory module and memory slot contacts. They are either copper tin or gold. The colour will tell you which they are. Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact. Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard. Reseat the memory modules. You should hear an audible click when they are in place. Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard. The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.


The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible. Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drives PCB http://www.onepcbsolution.com/ There is a connection problem such as a bad cable for internal hard drives
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide this will be the first to fail Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy (If Applicable) have secure connections and are not faulty. or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: not detect my 320gb hard drive why?

If this is an external USB drive, try connecting it to a different computer. If it works on another computer, it may be a problem with the USB controller on your computer. You may to reinstall the driver for this device. If it doesn't work on another computer also, it may be a problem with the drive controller in your drive caddy. You can purchase another caddy on ebay for around 10.00. You will need to know if the drive inside is IDE or SATA though. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Transcend hard disk issue

The problem is the usb ports in your pc. You know the drive works and is properlly deteced on the laptop so you can ignore that.

IF you can try other usb devices in your pc usb ports and see if they work.If they don't at all then you either have dead ports or drivers are missing. You should see them listed under control panel system hardware.

If they work then I would wonder if the usb drive you have requires a differant usb port than what you have. There is a type 1 and 2 and type 3 which has just come out so we can ignore that one. A type 1 is slower and cannot power devices usually. A type 2 is faster and can power some devices. I don't know how old your pc is so it could be hardware, either failure or drives. You should also makre sure you have the service packs installed for windows. Sp3 is the latest version. There were some changes to the way usb devices were deteced in Sp2 if I remember correctly.

SOURCE: hard disk not detected

You can't do very much, the damage is already done. The only thing you can do is to remove the hard disk from the case, put it in a pc and try to access it from there - most likely you will have to use a recovery soft to get some of your files back. Once that's done test the disk for faults using HDTune, the free version. If it reports errors, even small ones, then it's dying (or already dead) - junk it and buy a new one.

HP MINI NO DETTECT HARDDISK


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be 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.

OK the only shot you got is to geta USB to SATA/IDE converter dongle, connect to another PC's USB port. Hopefully, you will be able to read it. Otherwise still plugged in you may be able to use recovery software and get you DATA back. Recover my files is one,

If your drive is clicking and isn't detected by the operating system, your hard drive is VERY dead. There are no user replaceable part inside a hard drive. The only thing you might do is get the very same hard drive and swap the controller card from a known good hard drive to the bad hard drive but the chances of this working are VERY slim. I would resign myself to the fact that the data on that drive is very truly gone.
