    it would not let me go to the harddrive to change the setting. It only show that they detected the harddrive but not the cdroom and they let me change the order of the boot menu and the Lan connection that is about it. I couldnt do anything else.

Goto bios menu. And change the setting on hard drive and cdrom. It could be it still set in the old configuration. Try to set it in auto detect. Then save the setting. Then goto bios once again to check if the settings doesn't change. Restart again and wait if something you didn't expect still happens.

Leave a comment if this solve cd rom detection.

    Could be your cdrom has the fault in the first place. Since it can also affect the operation of the unit. If you can test your cdrom using usb adapter in another computer test it or you will have to replace the cdrom also.

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Hi Andrea I have just connected a hard drive to my Laptop and it isn't recogized.. can you help. I'm running on Windows XP Thanks Ian


Not Andrea, just wanted to offer;

1) Installed a new larger Harddrive for the laptop?
There is a special procedure for this. Depends on what laptop we're discussing here.
A new harddrive will have no operating system on it. BIOS needs to recognize the harddrive.

{When you press the Power On button of your laptop, the first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset. BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on, and hands the laptop over to the Operating System. WinXP is one example of an O/S }

Some laptops have a procedure where basic info is stored until the new harddrive is installed. Then the basic info is transferred to the new harddrive.

In any case I suggest going into the BIOS Setup, and on the main page see if the Harddrive is recognized.
It will be listed.
If it isn't listed you have to manually set the harddrive's parameters. (Type them in)
The Cylinders, Heads, and Sectors.

When BIOS recognizes the harddrive, then you can install Windows XP off of the Restoration Disk, (Repair. Also know as Non-Destructive Installation), or a fresh, new genuine copy.

2) If this is a reference to an external harddrive, there may be an electronic problem with the unit.
The main problem that happens with an external harddrive, is the small circuit board inside goes bad.

This small circuit board is an Interface Board.
It connects to the Harddrive inside the case of the external harddrive, and allows a USB cable to be used.

If this is found to be the problem simply remove the harddrive inside, and install it into an economical external enclosure.

Awaiting further information so I know what we are dealing with.

A) Is this a reference to a new harddrive being installed into the laptop?
If so, laptop manufacturer name, and Model Number.
(Bottom of laptop in a white Service Tag, or sticker)

B) Is this a reference to an extermal harddrive?
Manufacturer name, and Model Number

Lap top can't find hard drive


Hi,

Here are some steps that you can try.

- Check if the harddrive is recognized in the BIOS (Basic Input Output System). Normally you will see values beside "Drive 0" at the first page if the harddrive is detected. If it says none or blank, then it is not detected. Reload BIOS default settings and try to boot up the unit to see if it will pick up the harddrive.
- If the harddrive is not detected in the BIOS, you need to unscrew the harddrive compartment at the bottom of the laptop.
- Reinsert the harddrive and check harddrive cable. Also try to use a good known harddrive if yours is defective.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to replace my HD in my Acer aspire 5520 from 160GB (Hitachi of 5400 rpm and 8 MB) to 500GB (Hitachi of 7200 rpm and 16 MB). Acer sent the recovery cd. I used an enclosure hard drive to format...


first ..Im not sure I understood how you installed windows on the new Hdd..but I sow that you didn't do it in the laptop ..
the correct way is to see if the laptop is seeing the Hdd..and to install the windows directly on the hard disk installed into the laptop ...by using boot-able installation disk with the operation system ..Cause if you install it on another device ..or other way ..it will not recognize the devices present on the laptop ..and most likely to give you a blue screen ..and errors like the one you just got ..
Another thing ..you have to go to bios settings ..advanced st-up ..most likely ..and see the Hdd in there ..and on its settings to disable the AHCI function ..cause if you do not have a disk with sata drivers ..the laptop with the AHci function enabled will not see the hard disk ..and this is the error and what it means ...basically it didnt found the boot device ..cause of this function probably enabled in bios..It is not hard to disable ..just press F2 on start up ..and go to BIOS settings ..and look for the feature that allow you to see the Hdd and disk drive ..and set them u ..it is either the device .or the advanced settings..Im not remembering exactly ..its the second or the 3rd feature..and in there you will find a function named...AHCI...this have to be disabled in order that the laptop to see and function with the HDD ..otherwise it will say that the HDD is missing or the boot device is not present ..

When try to boot up it says operating system not found Thanks


This error comes when your harddrive is not detected properly or some os system files are missing.
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios then make sure your harddrive is recognized in bios if not then make sure SATA is disable then save settings .Then check.
If still same then you need windows disk or recovery disk to repair your windows missing files.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Lite on keyboard sk-6000 USB conection windows xp


Make sure that all USB functionality is enabled in the BIOS, especially USB Legacy Mode. If Windows still does not recognize the keyboard, then it is not compatible with USB. USB keyboards can be found as low as $10 pretty easily if all you need is basic keyboard functions.

Is it a bad mb ?


If the HDD is not recognized in the BIOS, windows will not be able to install on that drive. Did you move the HDD interposer from the old drive to the new one? (t is a small adapter that plugs on to the pins of the drive.) If you did, reinstall the interposer on the old drive, ensure it still works. If neither drive functions, then you may have a bad motherboard.

0x0000007B normally occurs when you try to install an older version of WIndows XP on a system with a newer HDD controller and the XP CD doesn't have the correct driver for the HDD controller. So if you get an error like this after getting the HDD to be recognized by the bios, then you may need the HDD controller driver too.

How to make Vista to recognize my old Hard drive


There are normally only two ways to get vista to recognise large drives and that is to format it within windows by way of right click my computer then click manage and then highlight your harddrive right click and select format. The other way is if your drive isnt being recognised because of the bios and needs updating, as most bios chips did when upgrading to vista.
