Question about Compaq Presario 5005 (470014-507) PC Desktop
HI, I just bought a new working hard drive and insalled in my computer. It was an 80 gig Maxtor IDE hard drive. When I started up my computer after installing it the screen said Hard Drive detects immenent failure. I just don't know what to do? Can someone please help me?!
If this is a brand new hard drive from a store return it for a new one. Hard drives have a built in feature called SMART. For some reason the SMART function is reading that there is something very wrong with the drive. If you have more than one hard drive installed on the system make sure SMART is detecting it on the new drive and not the older ones by unplugging the other drives from the motherboard.
