Hard drive not working

Hi, I have this 2nd hd drive (8gb) that I want to add to my existing hd (4gb) main boot. But when I plug the 2nd hd as slave, the pc won't power on. Only the motherboard light works. I even tried to make the 2nd drive as the master with no slave but still nothing happens. Any idea?

Hi im josh in cebu phils.Friend if that happens whrein your 2nd hdd dont detect. Try to use these solutions. Check first the jumper of the hardisk whether it is stated as slave or master. if 2nd disk is master the jumper should be in the master and if it is slave the jumper must be slave. or try to use another IDE cable. put them as both master the first hdd in first ide slot and your 8 GB 2nd hardisk in 2nd slot as master also. or try to enter bios setup utility then try to check or detect the both device.thats all good luck

PC will not see Maxtor 80GB DiamondMax Plus 9 as seconary slave.


Hi,

Two thing,

First, never use a Maxtor HDD as a slave to a CDROM/DVD, doesn't work and tends to cause stability issues. So try swapping the jumper on the CD/DVD to slave and setting the Maxtor to Master, this should get it working.

Second, if it is showing up as 33GB, you have the Jumpers set to limit capacity(designed to avoid troubles on older systems. If this is the case, you likely have a single jumper in the center row of pins between the power and data cables. If it only works as master at the moment, then you likely have the neter row(limit size pins) and the one closest to the data cable(Master Pin) both plugged in.

Change your DVD/CD to slave, remove the limiting jumper and ensure the Master jumper is installed on the Maxtor, then be sure the end connector on the ATA(likely marked master) is plugged into the Maxtor and the middle connector(Slave) is plugged into the DVD/CD, this should have you all fixed up.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Use second hard drive


The Windows operaring system is on your 1st drive (ie C drive) and if you change it to a slave drive the computer won't work.
You need to set the jumper on the 2nd hard drive as a slave drive and leave the original drive as the master drive expecially if the 2nd drive is on the same IDE controller and cable as the 1st. hard drive.
It doesn't matter if the 2nd drive is set to master or slave if it is on the 2nd controller.
When you boot up you should see both hard drives and can copy files from one drive to another.

Have maxtor 40gb hd want to add 2nd WD hd in DEll dim8200


(if both drives on the same cable):
Your boot drive goes at the end of the primary data cable.
Your second drive goes on the middle connection of the same cable.
The red stripe on the data cable needs to be closest to the power connection (red stripe to pin 1).
The jumper on the boot drive set to master.
The jumper on the second drive set to slave.
Look in the BIOS to make sure it sees both harddrives.
Boot the system.. it will need to be partitioned and formatted if not already..

Pc does not power on with hard drive plugged in


When you plug in the 2nd hard drive as a single drive does the drive spin up and the computer goes through the Power on self test (POST)?
If you cannot hear the drive spin up and the computer doesn't boot up then most likely the hard drive is faulty.

Screen dies when booting up


TRY PLUGGING IN EXTERNAL MONITOR, THIS IS IF YOU HAVE A LABTOP AND I THINK NOT.

HOW ABOUT REMOVING THE OLD DRIVE AND PUTING IT ON THE NEW COMPUTER AS 2ND DRIVER OR SLAVE DRIVE, SOME COMPUTER CABLES OFFER SELLECT CABLE THE C DRIVE WOULD BE 0 AND 2ND DRIVE WOULD BE 1, IF YOU DONT HAVE SELECT CABLE THAN EACH DRIVE HAS TO BE SET UP YOU WILL HAVE TO GO TO THE MFG WEB SITE LOOK UP JUMPER SETTINGS, THE FIRST DRIVE WILL BE THE MASTER AND THE SECOND ONE WILL BE THE SLAVE, NOW IF YOUR CD ROM IS ON WITH THE HD THAN YOU WILL HAVE TO HAVE 2ND CABLE FOR THE CDROM TOPUT ON THE 2ND SET OF PINS MARKED 2ND HD OPTION AND YOU HARD DRIVERS MASTER AND SLAVE GO ON
BANK 0 IF IT SAYS 0, IF IT SAY1 THAN PUT IT ON 1.

REBOOT AND THE COMPUTER WILL START AND PUT YOU INTO THE CMOS AND YOU WILL ADD THE HARD DRIVE BY GOING TO 2ND HD PUTTING CYCL, HDS, SECT, YES LBA
2ND CABLE YOU SELECT CD OR DVD
F10 AND YES
REBOOT
EVERYTHING SHOULD WORK FINE.

IF YOU DONT FILL CONFERTIBLE DOING THIS TYPE OF INSTALLATION THAN HAVE YOUR COMPUTER PROGRAMER FRIEND DO IT FOR YOU OR COMPUTER TECHN WILL WORK TOO.

Hi I use Maxtor HD's and IBM Deskstars also, one of my pc's has 4 500 gb SATA drives [not in raid mode] and have had some problems also.
If you are using 2 drives then one should be set as master and one as slave. Same thing goes for cd/dvd roms, master and slave, and use 80 wire ribon cables. If you are using just one drive and the settings in your bios, and master or slave and what drive boots up the machine.
if using only 1 drive set it to master [in SATA it does not matter you can leave them all as masters, and only if the cd.dvd's are SATA also, if not they have to be set up as master & slave, set the bios to boot from cd drive 1st 2nd is your HD and last is if you still use them a floppy. On boot with the OS CD in the drive boot the pc and it will start the instalation of windows, delete any partitions, format the drive [NTFS] NOT FAT OR FAT32, and you should be able to do a fresh instal. As with 2nd hand drives as they were used on another pc they have hidden files left on the drive [unless the person that gave it to you has prepared the drive to do a proper instal if not windows gives you the option to delete, create and format the drive, to be ready to continue to instal windows.

Installing a 2 port ATA-133 IDE adapter card to a desktop w/a hard drive & DVD


I don't think you can boot off of the ATA-133 so you will have to boot off of the IDE on the mobo and have the DVD drive jumpered cable select on the 2nd IDE. Boot that way to make sure the system boots. Shut down. Then instll the ATA-133 adapter with NO DRIVES on it and boot. The system should ask you for drivers for the new hardware. Intall the drivers. Shut down. Attach the new drives to the ATA-133. Reboot. You still might have to go into admin in windows and assign drive letters to the new drives. Anyway, if you are trying to boot off of a drive on the ATA-133 adapter, I don't think you can do it. I have mostly used Asus boards with Award Bios and there was no way to point the boot process to an add-on ATA Controller.

1st and 2d eide conector on mobo


Hi, Does not really matter whether slave via jumper or cable select on the secondary IDE. Your mb will boot to whatever HD you set it at in the BIOS/CMOS as the first boot device. The 3rd drive will be recognized as secondary whatever and if your CMOS/BIOS is set right it will boot from the primary master on IDE1. Good luck and kind regards.
