My HD died

I had SAMSUNG 6 GB HD but he died in a great
stile (strange loud noises from inside). So I replaced him with Maxtor 40GB, but mu motherboard does not recognize it. BIOS version is 05/13/1999-i440bx-w977tf-2a69kc39c-00. I assume that BIOS upgrade will solve this problem but I don’t know where to look for it. When I try to log on chaintech web site, they ask me for username and password, which I don’t have! I need that computer as soon as possible! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tried, but still no results. I`ve already replaced IDE cables. I see on forums that I am not the only one with this kind of problem. I`ll keep trying. As soon as I find a solution I`ll post it, unless someone do that first.

Check the jumpers on the back of your drives,also if you are using the wide flat wires(ide) remember their not indestructable they will tear on either side if ther'e twisted enough,if your not finding a simpler solution for the bios misread I suggest you don;t try a bios flash on your own good luck

500gb Iomega External HD began making a strange whirring noise about 6 months from the date of purchase and now my pc doesn't even recognize it as being there. I can't get to any of my pictures and music.


the drive is failing,its hard to recover something (15% recovery is me being optimistic) you can try using recuva as a last ditch attempt to get your files (http://www.piriform.com/recuva). best of luck :)

Dead hard drive, replacement not working


The solution is that you simply cannot go out and buy a replacement HD. You have to buy TOSHIBA's replacement HD.

They make a 40, 80, 160 and 320 GB HD for Tecra MV2's etc.- Other HDs simply will not detect.

Maxtor HD has 8 pins with shunt on 5 & 6 and the new HD I bought which is compatible just larger has 10 pins. Do I set the shunts on 5 & 6 for the newer HD?


there should be a sticker on one side of the drive that tells you which pins to put the jumper on, so use the master setting if its the only hard drive your using. if its not, use the slave setting

Maxtor 3200 usb hard drive with windows vista home premium


Hey guys I had the same problem... All the drivers for the device are inside the harddrive. Maxtor doesn't have any because you don't need any. What they've neglected to let any of us know is the power supply provided with the unit isn't powerful enough to run it. Replace the original power supply with another one and this will solve the problem. I replaced mine with an old laptops power supply, the fit was alittle tight but believe me it works.

Audiable tone from the inside of my Maxtor HD


Well thats a toughie, theres a recovery company that will pull the platter's out and install it into a functional drive, recovery experts or something. You can try it yourself but it's delicate on a laptop drive but not impossible.

Maxtor 40gb hard drive as master


Hi, Below is an image of a Maxtor 3.5 HD settings as shown on the actual HD. If you are connecting 2 of them in a single IDE flat cable/strip, one must be master and the other must be slave. Jumper settings on the left is for master, the second is for slave. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
