Check the bios if the hard drive is detected. if not configure the necessary jumper settings. if not detected, you have a defective hard drive.

if detected:

Try to fdisk it to repair the partition. reformat and install again.

Hope that helps.

Can I install a NEW 1T HDD where an old HDD failed?


In a lot of cases, the recovery disks you built may be looking for installation files (windows installation files) from a partition that is on the original drive of the machine. Your new drive would not contain this partition or the files. If you can STILL get into the old drive, I would consider putting both drives in your desktop.....and then use an disk imaging software to do a disk to disk clone of your drive rather than reinstalling Windows from the recovery disk. There are plenty of options for free cloning software.....just google free disk imaging, and you will probably find a ton of options with instructions. One thing to note....when cloning a drive be VERY careful when choosing your SOURCE and DESTINATION drives. Your SOURCE would be your old drive with your data, and your DESTINATION is your new drive. If you mess up that step, it will overwrite your old drive with the "blank" data from the new drive, and your data will be lost.

The other advantage to cloning, is you will get an exact replica of your current configuration. you dont need to reinstall programs or reconfigure things.

Friend bought used Gateway 1200cs w/win xp and no disks, she wants to put new HDD in and I need to make a disk to re-install windows or copy it to a partition. how to?


Some HDDs come with a cloning software - get that. Then you won't need to redo the operating system. However, if you have the original operating system disc, it has provisions to create another partition, but you want to install a new HDD. If I understand you correctly, she wants her old data in the new HDD - that's a separate issue. If I were you, I would just install the new HDD along with the old HDD together and have the old HDD run the operating system.

How do I replace the hard drive in my Dell


Did you format the drive before installing it on your laptop. Some laptop will not detect unformated hard disk. Try to format the hard disk somewhere else and check to see if the laptop detect it after.

Do i need to change my harddisk?


Hello,

It sounds like UBUNTU formated your hard drive where xp does not reconized the drive. When you go into BIOS setting, do you see your hard listed? If so, you should be able to put a clean install of XP to the drive. When you start the install, you must select REFORMAT drive and install XP. If this still fails, you may need to fdisk your drive first using DOS command and reinstall XP. Let us know if you incounter any more problems after doing this. Good Luck.

Computer freezes when trying to detect S-Ata drive


Hi Eamon, download Samsungs drive setup utility, tools from Samsungs web site. Creat a bootable floppy drive setup disk or a CD bootable disk.
http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/support/utilities/ES_Tool.html
Enable the SMART function using the setup software.
If you are going to use the Samsung drive as the primary master drive as the new C:\ you will need to enter the bios & set the Hard Disk Boot Priority, page 30 in you're manual to see the Samsung drive.
Connect only the Samsung into the system. Boot the system & use Samsung's software to setup the drive & format.
Disconnect any other hard disk drives that may have windows installed in it.

PC won't recognize external usb HDD


You may not have installed the HDD correctly in the case... I had the same problem with my Thecus N1050 enclosure, the green power light on the enclosure would come on and the drive would spin up but my PC would not see the HDD!!??... I thought, becuase i could hear the drive spinning that i had it installed correctly but this wasn't the case, when i removed the enclosure again and FIRMLY pushed the HDD into the connector (all the way in) and connected it back up to my PC, it recognised it instantly. Hope this helps!
