    Hi Lucie Blais Dupont, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? In what way doesn't Windows see the hard disk drive ? Does a little square symbol appear at the bottom right of your screen in the coloured bar there when you connect it up ?

Blue light flashed on the portable hard drive for a couple seconds.How do I know if all files were transfered? Nothing on screen showed up? I have a HP laptop.


If your portable hard drive was set up as the "H" drive, go to My Computer (in Windows XP), or Computer (in VISTA), select your "H" drive and view your files (if there).

HP Pavilion ze5500 - Laptop won't recognize hard drive.


Hi. Once I had this similar problem with a HP Pavilion dv9000. "No Operating System"; "Windows Recovery Console cannot continue because there's no HD present..press F3 to Exit". No progress with Safe Mode nor Command Prompt, etc.
Then I went to the Bios, change tab to "System Configuration" and change the "Sata Native Support" to disable, whitch says that by changing to disable the HD would work better if the Operating System are Win2000 and Win9x.
Hit "Safe and Exit" and the computer started normaly!
I relly don't know how or why. It just work.
I don't know if would work for Linux (mine had Windows XP) and don't know the Bios view of your laptop. But you can explore and give it a try.
Hope this helps.
God Bless You!

Xp pro not all of my gbs


it could be multiple problems :
first your system doesnt has the software to display more gb,normally there is a software that comes with the hard drive to install it, if you dont have it, you can google the website of hard disk company for it

eg seagate maxtor have their s/w which is free downloadable


secondly your system needs to be configured to display the new drive, go to systems tool administrative tools computer management tool options and u can view the hard drive and format it or create new partitions to display it

let me know if this works

Lost everything on my laptop as soon as i open it


I dont think you lost everything. Do you see any green power lights and do you hear the normal hard drive and fan sounds when booting up ? If you do and still wont boot up to Windows then reboot and keep tapping on F8 to safe mode and select "last known good configuration". You can also perform system restore.

If you dont hear anything at all, no power and you dont see any green power lights then you may have to plug into another known good power outlet. check that your power connections (including the power adaptor) are secured and if on a strip power off and on. If that doesnt work, try another power adaptor. If those doesnt work
remove the laptop battery and just plug in the adapter.

If youre concern about your personal files you can always take out the hard drive, piggyback it to another hard drive on a known good PC and retrieve the files.

Makes repeated beeps, doesn't seem to work


There is a high possibility that the Hard Drive has Crashed. The beeping sound is an indication. You can try to connect it to another computer just to check if the other systems can still detect the Hard Drive. You can try to connect it to a Windows XP system and a Windows Vista System just to check the difference. If other system still can't detect it, you may be looking at Hard Drive Failure.

**Note : If you can see the Hard Drive under My Computer, you can check Disk Management to be sure (Disk Management gives you the list and the info on all storage devices on the system, formatted or unformatted.). If you can't see the Hard Drive inside Disk Management, You should call Simple tech Support for replacement if Hard Drive is still under warranty.

How to access Disk Management :

1.
Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
2.
In the console tree, click Disk Management. The Disk Management window appears. Your disks and volumes appear in a graphical view and list view. To customize how you view your disks and volumes in the upper and lower panes of the window, point to Top or Bottom on the View menu, and then click the view that you want to use.

**Note : There is no Software that can recover files from a crashed Hard Drive, In that first place, shich ever software that is, it will not be able to detect the Hard Drive anyway. There is one company that is credible to retrieve data from crashed Hard Drives (If your pictures / Files are that valuble to you).

Check out this link or call 800 440-1904 :
(Company is Drive Savers - Expert in retreiving data of Hard drives ) :
