If you are refering to a Sata generation I hard drive and you were previously using it and now you cannot access it, then it has probably failed.

Buy a external hard drive shell to put the disk into and then go to another machine. Test it there.

My laptop it dosent asept windows xp


SATA HARD DRIVE - XP INSTALLATION
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

My hard disk dosent get detected but if i touch it then i can feel motor inside is rotating please help


could be the sata cable not seated properly or bad cable. check connections. If its the only sata drive connected make sure it's plugged into sata #1 slot. Could be drive, motherboard or bios problem. Next step would be to update the bios. That might help.

Motherboard : ASUS P5GV-TMX Which hard disks does this motherboard support? It came with sata-I hard disk. Recently i bought a sata-II hard disk bt it is giving some problems..to be specific on windows it...


Yes, it can be causing a problem. You have 2 hard drives that are working at 2 very different speeds. The computer is having to do a translation and adjust rates of transfer between them on top of having to do the read and writes between them. Will SATA II will be backwards compatible to SATA I it won't work the other way. If you have to keep these drives, I would make the SATA II Drive the primary and SATA I drive the secondary on a different channel if possible. The SATA II drive is teh faster drive and should be your main.

You set your BIOS to "SATA = Enabled" under that set it to
" IDE ". Most 160gig HDD's are only 1.5gig max read/write. Hope you left the jumoer pin on.
