If the hard drive doesn't show up in BIOS either the drive is new to the unit, drive has failed or the motherboard may have a failed IDE/SATA.


If it's a new drive you're trying, go into bios and disable Fast/Quick Post/Boot from bios and restart the computer it should find it. If not either try a new drive you know works in the laptop or your drive in a laptop you know works and we'll figure it out from there.

Try these steps and let me know how it works out, if you can't get it narrowed down I'll offer a few more suggestions.

MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I Disable the "SECURITY FREEZE LOCK" on my hitachi HTS54503289a300, 320 GB sata hard Drive? originally WAS INTALLED IN MY ACER TRAVELMATE LAPTOP NANUFACTURED IN 2012 BUT THE LAP


Maybe if you can format the disk-but you loose data, maybe there is a program that can do it, probably in linux, or bootable itself, maybe ask acer for master password or something, if you still own original laptop and it runs then try to remove disk encryption while the hdd is accessible with laptop (i think its in bios), otherwise the hdd may be unusable to prevent data theft. you can plug any sata hdd into any sata device if you can hook all the cables, no compatibility issues there. try googling and youtubing for more answers

Max HDD size supported by BIOS in TravelMate 508DX


Windows 98 has a max of 64GB and windows 98SE 137GB. (That one came with Win98, right?). A decent 20GB should do if you're using still windows 98. Your BIOS should have a list of drives to choose from but it should be alot more than the 4.8GB drive that comes with the laptop.

Bios not find hard disk


If the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive.

1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.

2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.

3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.

4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.

How to get password from hdd password error code acer aspire 4315


Is the error message coming before bios starts to load XP from harddisk, or after?

If it is coming after XP starts then it may be driver issue.

If it is coming before XP, then it may be a question of incorrect bios for the hardware in your laptop.

Acer laptop is not detecting harddisk


kiran,
i thought you have SATA interface, in that case your XP will not be able to access your HDD. But now as you told there is no option for SATA means you don't have SATA interface in your motherboard and the problem might be in your HDD.
  1. So, check out your HDD connection from motherboard and try to install again if no luck then do the following step.
  2. If you have important data/files on your HDD make a backup copy. Then make try to delete all partition and make new partition, then proceed further installation OR if you have recovery disk try to use it to recover your system as factory setting.

Thanks
