If the drive cannot be accessed then the logic board on the hard drive is toast. U can remove the sata drive and install it into a working desktop with sata connections and see if the desktop recognizes it.

When installing on another computer, make sure that you are still booting up from the working sata drive originally there. If you change the bootup sequence to the allegedly non working drive and it does work you may corrupt the operating system in the bootup process. Just put it in there and see if the other computer boots up and recognizes it. Often if a hard drive is really bad the defective unit will prevent a good working computer from booting up at all.

Have a client's laptop that powered on, a black screen comes on and the message says "cannot read the hard disk, press Ctrl Alt Delete to restart". So I took out the hard disk and tried to access...



One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections needs its connections continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

I had travelstar 5k250 2'5 sata hdd in my laptop acer aspire 2920 and need to replace it now due to damage but can not get same one which one will replace it


use a good quality drive such as samsung/toshiba etc.
it just need to have the 2.5 format and sata connections be fast enough and big enough for all you stuff.

most laptop drives are 4200 if you are not doing anything with graphics or video then, it might be ok. professional users will buy 7200 speed drives

Hope this helps

Computer won't recognize disk drive. driver is up to date. Vista.


Double check and jumpers on the drive first such as MS master, Sl slave, CS cable select and make sure it is not set to the same as any other drives in the computer.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click of Death"

Hope this gives you the information you need

Was sent my old internal harddrive after a warranty service to make a backup from and i want to know what connection i need to make it usb. 5K250-250


you can purchase a huge range of drive interfaces from your local computer store. Make sure you get an interface, or USB external case to suit the drive interface ( PATA or SATA ) plug the ting in and connect to your pc through a usb port... then I would copy the entire drive contents onto another drive..
