New hdd for laptop from Nippon Labs

I am trying to use my new hdd toshiba gsy in a Nippon lab 2.5in casing and my hp pavillion is detecting in the usb, but when I go to the computer in Vista I do not have the new hdd. In my generic desktop I have Xp and it tell me that I have to format the new hdd? I can format using XP using my desktop but my laptop uses vista, can I do this?. How can I clone my hdd to my new one, I have to buy ghost or something like that. Can I get out my older hdd and then put the new one and use the recovery manager and the backup disks. Please any comments for this issue. My computer is a HP pavillion dv 6500z

Yes you can format this drive from your XP machine, or in vista (or xp for that matter) right click on my computer and then left click on manage.

When the computer management screen comes up highlight "Disk Management" on the left side. This will then display your drives in the right side. From here you can right click on the drive and create partitions, format etc.

You will need ghost or some other cloning software if you want to image the old drive to the new one. However if you have restore disks for the computer you should also be able to just install the OS on the new drive.

Hope this helps

Hi Badboy !

you can type the name on the motherboard on Google e.g : asrock m3a ucc pdf

You will find the pdf manual right away. On the 20 th page you will see how to connect the HDD led .I think the case should only have one led for the HDD if it has 2 leds just ignore it because the motherboard has only one place where you can put that led. Be careful and good luck !

I have a Toshiba (MK4004GAH) 40 GB Hard Drive which was taken out from a Old Toshiba Laptop. I bought a 1.8" IDE casing with USB and connected to my new laptop....however, it fails to detect the HDD....


You have to make sure that you have connected the HDD in the right way. Please open it and ensure that you placed the disk rightly into the casing with each pin tapping the rightful hole, see the casing's small manual. Note also that the laptop has to detect the casing as well, so cross check the casing to ensure that its working.

Need drivers to install for xp


Creative Labs has always been tough about making their sound drivers available. One trick I found was to go to www.hp.com or www.dell.com and look for creative lab sound drivers there. I have not had any luck getting them from Creative Labs usually I end up purchasing a inexpensive new sound card.

Installed an exchanged motherboard on my hp pavillion dv 9081ea laptop. hard drive not getting detected. hard drive has ubuntu 8.04 and windows xp sp3 installed on it


Did you bother to check if the new motherboard was compatabe with your hard drive? Because sometimes, the slots and stuff are, but the motherboard functions differently if the hard drive is not compatable by model. Check again, and maybe, the hdd wasn't put it wright or something.

Anyways, hope this helps.
