Bios not recognize new hard drive dell ide

The problem is with your BIOS settings. You need to make sure the drives are set to AHCI in the BIOS.

Seagate 3tb external hard drive gives beeping sound when powered on and not recognized by computer

There is a possibility that your hard drive has been physically damaged. I am saying this because unwanted sound and not being recognized are one of the symptoms of hard drive failure . So if the data is very important for you consult the data recovery specialist they will for sure help you out.

Will an Acer Aspire all in one z5600 support a 3TB internal hard drive

From PC Magazine:
At issue here is a limitation that affects storage media larger than 2.19TB in size, and typically requires updated hardware and a post-Windows XP operating system to take full advantage of. (Read PCMag's article "The Problem with Big Hard Drives" for more information about this.)

For computers to recognize drives any larger than 2.19TB, the MBR and the BIOS would have to be replaced. The successor to the MBR is the GUID Partition Table (GPT), which offers 64-bit block addressing, and thus (when 4KB blocks are utilized) a maximum storage size of 9.4 zettabytes (or 9.4 trillion gigabytes). What's supplanting BIOS, which can't read GPT, is the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), which is built on CPU-independent architecture and drivers and offers more flexibility and features outside of the operating system.

Because Windows XP has no support whatsoever for GPT and UEFI, no system running it can natively use any drive with a capacity over 2.19TB. Even if you have a supported OS (Windows Vista, Windows 7, and most flavors of Linux) that recognizes GPT, you won't be able to boot to a drive of that size unless you also have a motherboard running UEFI-something that, as of this writing in late 2010, very few do. All current Intel boards support UEFI, but almost no other major manufacturer has yet followed suit. So, under most circumstances, if you don't have a UEFI motherboard (and you probably don't), you'll have to use your extra-large hard drive for storage only. (There are worse things.)

Finally, your system's SATA controller must also be designed to recognize 4KB blocks. This isn't necessarily a big deal: As we discovered when we reviewed Western Digital's new 3TB Caviar Green hard drive, the company is including with all its above-2.19TB drives a PCI Express x1 Host Bus Adapter that lets Windows use a known driver to communicate with the drive.

Doesn't see entire 3TB drives

No. There is a 2TB MBR (Master Boot Record) in Windows.

It needs to formatted / partitioned if new. Type diskmgmt.msc in Search / Run and use the hard drive setup wizard. Highlight the drive and use the refresh icon to initiate wiazard.

You may even have to deleted partition and start from begging. This will cuase data loss. Windows 7 and newer has a dynamic drive option to expand if the partition if not active with the OS.

I have the Thermaltake BlacX 5G Dual hard drive docking station and I cannot get the hard drives to show up on my computer. I don't have USB 3 on my computer so I am using a regular USB 2.0 cable. I...

I know it might sound a bit simple, but let's start at the beginning.

Make sure that the power is properly plugged in, and that it's securely plugged into the USB port.

Put in the hard drive you will be using.
Now turn on your device by clicking on the power button.
Listen out for a "ding" or a chime in your OS.

If you DO hear one, the hard drives may need to be properly formatted or not properly assigned.

If you hear a chime, go to your desktop and right-click on "Computer" and click "Manage"

Go to "Disk Management" and at the top, there are a few options, and check for your hard drives, and right-click on the proper one and click on "Change Drive Letter and Paths" assign it a letter, and check "Computer" to see if came up.

Guys if someone can help me i have 3 pc's with Dx58 So motherboards after a while of working a blue screen pop up and the pc restart.... PC specs: Intel DX58SO 3.20 GHz - i7-960 8M/LGA1366 ...

The Blue Screen could be a Hardware error but sometimes it is software (such as Drivers). Did you just replace the motherboard with a different one? If you did then that the problem, Windows does not like it when you switch Major hardware on it. If you want to troubleshoot further, only connect the essentials on to the computer and disconnect any fire wire or USB devices you have connected.

The BSOD or Blue Screen Of Death can both be hardware or software, Usually if you installed something on the computer such as a driver then it is most likely software and you should be able to log in by going in to safe mode (press F8 Repeatedly as the computer is booting up)

If its hardware, Then it can most likely be your Hard Drive or you Memory and would need to run a scan to figure out which one went bad

Hope this helps!

I have the same issue

Win XP will not be able to recognize whole 3TB storage drive. You need to use some kind of 3rd party utility and then partition it and format as well.. AS a note win xp size is limited up to 80-100 GB.
