SOURCE: driver problem

Hi Vicient,

I have the following questions to evaluate the problem.
1) What's the port your harddrive supported? Is it standart IDE cable or SATA.

I have a hardrive utility software that can detect and access any type of harddrive but you need install it at running windows.

Please email and dont forget to used the subject "Driver Problem" if sound interesting for you.

Checl all internal cable connections (unplug-plug

Check all internal cable connection to be correct, start and observe messages to see if your HDD is recognized by bios and memory test is ok.
If problem remains try to boot from CD with original operating system disk in CDROM.

SOURCE: Replaced hard drive in Toshiba Tecra M9. refuses to re

Look on the back edge of your old HDD where all the gold pins are and on one side there is a group of 4 pins in two rows of two... and see if there is a tiny jumper installed across two of them (white or black about 1/8" tall and 1/16th wide).

Now look on the new HDD and see if there is one there. The NEW HDD must be set up exactly like the OLD one or it won't be detected by BIOS or Windows.

I am beginning to think your LT has the CD as MASTER and the HDD as SLAVE, which may require adding or removing a jumper. Some new ones come with, some without ;-) I didn't think of this earlier

Check that. Email me the result

Operating system not found

Hi Jana, it is a common problem yes, your hard drive works like an old record player, with a thin needle reading off the hard drive platters where your data is stored. What most likely happened is the shock of the drop damaged the reading needle.

If it makes a clicking noise then you know your platters are having trouble spinning up.

You will need to replace the hard drive

My wife drop the laptop on the floor and since then when i start the laptop it says no boot device found.

Two possibilities here:
1. When your laptop was dropped, the connecting between the hard drive & the laptop's motherboard became loose, & as a result the motherboard could not properly detect the hard drive. Solution here is simple: Try removing the hard drive & replacing it back in the laptop & see if this resolves the problem.
2. If the case did not turn out to be as described in point (1), then most probably your hard drive is damaged as a result of the fall. In this case you will also need to remove it off the laptop, but you will have to buy & install a replacement hard drive, & re-install the operating system & all other software.

The document at the following link describes how to uninstall/install a hard drive in your laptop's model:

No; the message indicate absence of hard drive.

if the message still appear then your hard drive is faulty.

My Compaq Presario F700 dropped approximately 2 feet to the floor from on top of a suitcase at the airport. It was in a case, but not a thickly padded one. When I tried to use the laptop after the fall,...

Try reseating the hard drive and the RAM modules, the fall may have slightly loosen these components.
The error message "Operating System not found" means the laptop could not find the hard disk, this problem could be the hard drive needs reseating, a faulty hard drive (they don't like being dropped), or a faulty disk controller.
