Question about Dell Dimension 8250 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Free driver schematics

I need an internal view of the wiring diagrams for the hard drives. I'm installing 2 and the cpu isn't recognizing either one of them. I also need to know where to place the jumpers at and which drive should be master/slave or primary/secondary. I really appreciate any help you could give.

Put the jumpers on both the drives to CS(cable selct) then the master will automatically be the one on the end of the ribbon cable and the slave will be the one on the middle connector of the ribbon.

    Normally there are two Sockets on the motherboard labeled IDE0(primary) and IDE1(secondary). Plug the lead into IDE0 and use IDE1 for DVD/CD.
    Check that all the drive assignments in BIOS are set to AUTO.
    I'm not quite sure where the analogue/digital came into it, this could be the joystick port but usually it pokes through the side of the case.

    Try reading the manual here:-

    That should help!

Lifestudio isn't installed on my pc anymore and when i plug in the external hdd a light comes on but nothing happens


1. From what I read it may be the port drivers that are not installing for the USB port you have connected you hard drive to.
2. Check the manufacturers site for driver updates and hard drive requirements
3. It may be that the driver are not for the OS that you have or you may have to download them.
4. Try another cable ( USB)
5. Last it may be the internal electronics of the drive itself that may not be writing or reading the information sent by the pc to the port .
You may need a new case with new electronics ( hard drive main board).

Just bought a new cpu, put it together and purchased the western digital 160 gb sata II model number WD1600AAJS. i am installing windows 7 on it, or attempting and it won't recognize the drive. it says it...


The drivers are not needed, West. Digital is right. Your problem is that the hard disk is not recognized by the motherboard (not the cpu). Since you didn't mentioned anything about motherboard's brand / model, I have to tell you that you have to get into the bios settings and get yout hard disk recognized by the bios. I assume that the connections are right.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Bushnell Outdoor digital camera, usb doesnt recogonize device


Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! If you view a driver, and it says you do not need one, then how do you have a driver to view? Everyhing has a driver, if they didnt then how could the CPU recognize anything?

Dvd/cd internal drive cable(s) connection


Hi,
this isn,t a big task.
1:- cable 40 strand IDE Ribbon Cable to DVD Rom. If there is a secondary device such as hard-drive. view it,s jumper ( plastic Block) setting will be Master Or Slave. Setup your DVD To Opposite of Hard-Drive ( If applicable )
2:- 4 pin Molex plug power cable, Red-Blk-Blk-Yellow. Only goes in 1 way, usually yellow facing outside edge of case.
3:- turn on computer, drive should be detected, install device drivers via CD if requested by the system.
