Try this;
And yes, all the data on the old drive stays with the old drive. You will need a usb to sata connector and then copy your data across.

Good luck. If you have already handled a thinkpad, I foresee no problem with this one. They're all pretty much the same.

Samsung external hard drive

!! You have failed to provide a detailed problem. !!

External hard drives are plug-and-play devices used to store music, video and data files. Once the drive is connected, the computer checks its systems for the appropriate drivers, loads them, and the external drive is ready to use. If the computer does not recognize the external drive, plug it into another computer to ensure the drive is not corrupted. If the drive is good, a few simple steps should help re-enable the drive for use.
Switch the power button to "off." Disconnect the power cord from any extension cords or power strip, then re-seat the power cord into the hard drive. Connect the cord directly into an outlet and power up the drive. If the drive is powered and still not working, check the data cable. Power down the hard drive and disconnect the data cable from the computer. Wait 30 seconds to one minute. Reconnect the data cable and power up the drive. If the drive is not detected, power down the hard drive and connect the cable to a different port. Power up the drive. If the drive is detected but not working, check for a missing driver. Click on the "Start" button, right-click "Computer" and select "Manage." Enter your administrator password if requested. Select "Device Manager" and double-click "Disk Drives." Right-click the yellow exclamation point and install the missing driver. Close the Device Manager. If the drive is detected but not working check to ensure it has an assigned drive letter. Disconnect all devices connected by USB cables from the computer. Reconnect the drive's data and USB power cables directly into the computer. Click on the "Start" button, right-click "Computer" and select "Manage." Enter your administrator password if requested. Click on "Disk Management," right-click the external hard drive, click "change drive letter and path," and click "Add." Assign a drive letter. Avoid using A, B or C (C is usually assigned to the computer's internal hard drive). Click "OK" close the window. If the drive is detected but not working, check whether the drive is in sleep mode. Disconnect all devices connected by USB cables from the computer. Reconnect the drive's data and USB power cables directly into the computer. Click the "Start" button, right-click "Computer" and select "Manage." Enter your administrator password if requested. Select "Device Manager" and double-click "Universal Serial Bus Controllers." Double-click the first instance of "USB Root Hub" or "Root Hub." Check for the hard drive. If the drive is not visible, move to the next instance of "USB Root Hub." Continue checking each instance until the hard drive is located. Once located, click the "Power Management" tab and uncheck the "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power" box, click "OK," then close the Device Manager. Power the computer down, wait 30 seconds to one minute, and power the computer back up to ensure the drive is detected.

How to remove acer laptop bios password

You'll need to open the laptop and reset the CMOS battery.

I'd recommend doing a search for you make and model for additional details. But in brief:

1. Disconnect power adapter and remove the battery.
2. remove the screws around the hard drive compartment (bottom of laptop) and slide off the cover
3. remove the screws holding hard drive in place and slide out the hard drive
4. Disconnect or remove the small power lead that connects the battery to the mother board.
5. Reconnect and place everything back together.

Trying to install windows on a IBM Think Centre mt-m 8183-360 SN kcmc6k7 every time it goes to install it tells me no hard drive is attached

Either the hard disk is faulty or it needs reconnecting so it makes proper connection.
Remove the data connector from the hard drive and connect it back onto the hard drive. Also remove the other end of the data cable from the motherboard and reconnrct it again.
When you install Windows again and the hard drive is not detected then the hard drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.

I had a problem with my pc it cant power on and only green light in the board i see. any advise please

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

When you disconnected the hard drive by pulling the USB cable from the computer without using the remove hardware feature it will cause the computer to not recognize the drive. You should be able to power down the drive and then re-boot the computer. After the computer has restarted then reconnect and power up the drive and windows should detect it again. Some of you files on the drive might have been corrupted when this happened so I would go into my computer and run check disk to repair any errors on the drive. If you reboot the computer and the drive still does not respond then you may have caused damage to the drive. You could then try dis-assembling the case for the hard drive and installing it into the computer and see if it works. If it works in the computer then the external hard drive's power supply is defective if it does not the the drive is damaged.
