SOURCE: motherboard

Most of the new systems and motherboards support SATA connectors onboard. In your case there is none as you have found. So the best option is always upgrading to a new motherboard in case you need to add more SATA drives. You can also try to find SATA add-on cards, may a little costly types. These cards use PCI interface and very easy to install but hard to find one. I hpoe you could find one from a hardware store near you. If your motherboard has ordinary PCI slots then the SATA adpter will be less costly, otherwise (if it features a PCI-X slot) it will be costly. Following is a simple description on what the market has to offer: SATA II - 150 4Ports PCI-X with NCQ, Raid 0+1, Raid 0 and Raid 1 ! You can upgrade your desktop computer to have four Channels Serial ATA Generation 1 and Generation 2 transfer rate of 1.5 Gbps. The board provides a 64bit, 133 MHz PCI interface on the host side and four, fully compliant Serial ATA ports on the device side to access Serial ATA storage devices such as hard disk drive, ZIP drive, CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM. Note: Fault tolerance: RAID 0 (Striping), RAID 1 (Mirroring), RAID 0+1 (mirrored-stripping) and RAID 1+S (Mirrored-Sparing) improve the data performance and provide the data redundancy and rebuilding.

Martin,

They make SATA cables with a 90 degree connection on one end.
Hopefully this will solve your clearance problems with your case.

Here is a link to website that carries these.

They work great and fit tight against the drive.

Hope this helps,

SOURCE: computer doesn't see new secondary hard drive

There is no option in the bios to enable sata. It appears that the sata ports are just for decoration (hence hp using IDE)

SOURCE: I recently had a hard drive failure on my HP

I'm not sure you can insert your OS disk to istall or not, so the solution depends on your being able to do so. It seems to me there's a strong possibility that the BIOS cannot see the drive because that software had basic drivers to recognise the IDE Drive the computer came with.

So, you have to locate the SATA Driver which can be loaded during installation of the OS from either a boot cd or boot floppy. WIndows Setup gives you a chance at the beginning of setup if you watch the progress bar below to press F6 if you need to load a "Third Party or RAID driver" A little further along the setup will stop and prompt you for this driver and you'll need it ready with the exterior CD drive or floppy drive attached with the media in it to load.

It's quite possible this is what you're going to have to do. If this isn't the solution, please don't trash my rating with a thumbs down click. I'm trying to help without complete info.

Best Wishes

Problem with COMPAQ DC5850 SFF ATH/5000 2GB80GB COMBO WVXP PC Desktop hp compaq dc5850 pc won't turn on after plugging in old hard drive for transfer Posted by Author imageGuest on 1/4/2013


The h3ll you say.

(Kidding around)

Let me see if I understand this straight;

You unplugged THE harddrive to your computer..............

Then you plugged an old harddrive in, and expected to be able to use it.

Expected to because you've done it in the past.

Really

Curious;
1) Was it an old harddrive you had in the computer, removed it; and had a larger one installed?

2) Is it one that you have had in another computer?

Here's what I know, and why I'm asking;

When Windows is installed on a computer it assigns hash values, to certain major hardware components.
For example;

A) Processor
B) Motherboard: To include the motherboard chipset, and BIOS program. (To include version and date)
C) Harddrive
D) Graphics chipset

Change any two of these hardware components, and Windows will think it is being stolen. Put on another computer.

Microsoft User's License states, "One GENUINE copy of Windows per ONE computer"

(Microsoft makes one Master disk, and from it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer)

Now if you stated you installed the old harddrive as a Slave drive; then I could understand.

P2 connector?
That is a Power Supply power cable.

According to specifications the Harddrive is a SATA unit.

http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/ca/en/sm/WF06b/12454-12454-64287-3328896-3328896-3658105-3687950.html?dnr=1

Internal Drives - Hard disk controller -SATA 3.0Gb/s NCQ SMART IV

The power cable to it is a SATA power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

Probably what your P2, and P3 power cables are.


http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-DC5850-SFF-Motherboard-SPS-461537-001-/310417711958?pt=Motherboards&hash=item4846566356

P1 will be a 24-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

P4 cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

P5 cable, MAYBE, (Might be P3 too)

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

And P6 power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#floppy

This type of power cable is also used on a Card Reader.

To conclude;

A) SATA harddrive has to have a SATA power cable, and SATA data cable.

The SATA power cable's connector is wider, than the SATA data cable's connector.
15-pins for the SATA power cable connector; 7-pins for the SATA data cable's connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

The above is a general example of a SATA data cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard.

Your SATA data cable connectors on the motherboard, are of a different style than the above.

You have Four SATA connectors on the motherboard;
1) Light Blue
2) Orange
3) Dark Blue
4) White

How to connect a cd rom/dvd


If your CD / DVD is powered on Ok then you are missing the data cable connection which will be either a SATA (small connector) or IDE (much larger connector) both of which plug in to your motherboard....Look at the CD / DVD and try to identify which type of connector you are missing then look for an unconnected cable of the same type within your case.

How to install sata harddisk


With Serial ATA technology quickly replaince IDE/ATA as the new standard in hard disks, more and more computer users will need to know how to install SATA hard drives. The process of installing a SATA hard drive is similar to installing an IDE hard drive, except a bit simpler. Follow the directions in this article to learn how to install a new SATA hard drive.

1.Detemine whether or not your hard drive supports SATA. SATA technology was not introduced into the market until after 2002, so any consumer PC before that will not support a SATA hard drive. To find out whether or not a SATA hard drive can be installed into your motherboard, you can review the manual that came with your computer, or you can contact your computer's manufacturer. If you have already purchased a SATA hard drive, but have your motherboard does not support SATA technology, you will not be able to use your new hard disk.

2.Power down your computer and remove any peripherals or connections. Ground yourself either by wearing an anti-static wrist strap, or by touching a piece of unpainted metal. Remove your computer's case.

3.Locate your hard drive bay. Your hard drive bay should be located beneath your CD/DVD drive.

4.Locate the SATA data cables on your motherboard. Review the image to the left to get an idea of how your SATA slots may look (not all motherboards look the same). The small, red connections on the bottom-left of the motherboard are your SATA connections.


5.Take your SATA data cables (the red, smaller cable pictured left) and plug the one end into the motherboard. Insert the data cable into the lowest numbered slot (i.e. 0, 1).

6.Next, you will want to locate your computer's power cable. Some computers will already have a SATA-compatible power cable available, but others may not. If your computer does not have a SATA-compatible power cable, you will need to buy an adapter. As in the picture above, it will have one white end and one black end. Plug the white end of the adapter into the white end of the power cable in your computer. It should look identical to the one in the picture.

7.Connect the data and power cables to the back of your hard drive. The larger cable goes in the larger slot, whereas the smaller cable goes in the smaller slot. If they do not fit at first, simply turn them around and try again.

8.Slide your hard drive into the drive bay. You will want to make sure that the part of your hard drive with the connections on the back is facing outwards. Then, taking a screwdriver, line up the holes in the bay with the holes in your hard drive and screw the SATA hard disk into place.

9.Power on the computer. If you have installed two SATA drives, unlike with IDE, you should not have to designate them as master or slave (both will be independent drives). If your computer is not reading your new hard drive, power down the computer and check all connections, making sure they are secure.

New hard drive which I'm trying to install in HP M8400f I have taken off the side panel but how does the new hard drive install?


There will be a 3.5" bay with screws holes that the hard drive will go into. (Usually two metal columns in the front of the machine)
First, Make sure the computer is turned off. There is potential for harm to yourself and the machine if you leave it on.
Place the drive in the bay and screw it in. Connect the large sata cable for the power connect the small sata cable for the data
make sure the data cable is also connected to the motherboard
Put the side panel back on and boot up the machine. You will probably need to format the drive in order to use it.

How to install secind sata hard drive


It all depends on how many SATA ports are available on your motherboard.
Older motherboards (EIDE+SATA) usually only had one SATA port. In that case I'd advise purchasing an internal PCI SATA card (around US$ 30).
Modern motherboards (SATA + legacy EIDE) have two, four or even six SATA ports available, and you basically just have to screw the hard disk in an empty slot of the appropriate size (3.5"), and connect the cables. You may have to purchase both data and power SATA cables though. Then, format and install the drive (advice: use the one OS you use more often) from Control Panel > Administrative Tools > My Computer > Disk Management. And you're done.

How do I install a new CD drive in an old destop computer It is an old Compaq Presario 5WV254 The existing CD drive has a ribbon type connector that mates up to the pins on the drive plus a 4 pin module...


The Compaq Presario SWV254 Desktop PC uses IDE technology, not SATA.
In the specifications for the above Desktop PC, it states ATAPI is used for the interface technology, and connector, for the optical drive/s.

[IDE is also referred to as PATA. Parallel ATA
SATA is Serial ATA.
The PATA designation was implemented, so that computer users could easily distinct between IDE, and SATA technology]

1) The IDE interface cable, (Flat ribbon cable), has a connector on each end with 40 socket holes.
(39 are actually used. Most of the time, one socket hole is blocked off. (Pin 32)

2) The SATA interface cable has 7 contact pins. Also referred to as a Data cable.

3) The IDE devices, (Harddrive and optical drive), use a 4-pin Molex connector for the power cable.

4) The SATA devices use a 15-pin connector on the end of the power cable.

More info on SATA,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SATA

The Samsung SH223C optical drive is a SATA device.
You cannot just plug it in.

IF, you have an open, (Available), PCI slot on the motherboard, you can use a SATA adapter card.
The SATA adapter card plugs into the PCI slot, and has the necessary connections on the card, for a SATA interface cable.

(NOTE*
Just for the SATA interface cable. Does not have a connection for the SATA power cable, you need.

You have to buy a 4-pin Molex to SATA power cable adapter, and connect it to an available 4-pin Molex power cable, on your power supply.

You will also need a SATA data cable. The interface cable that goes from the SATA adapter card, to the SATA optical drive you're trying to install)

This is an example of a SATA adapter card. It is not an advertisement for said website, nor manufacturer,

1 Solution for ''I have a Compaq Presario 7000 replacing the C harddrive the BIOS set up does not find harddrive''


possible causes:
1. jumper set incorrectly on hard drive itsself.
2. data or power cable not connected properly to hard drive
3. data cable backwards in hard drive or motherboard. (should always have the red stripe on the data cable towards the power connector on the hard drive and on pin number one of the motherboards' primary IDE connector)
check all off these...IF you are installing a SATA hard drive then you may need to install sata drivers on your computer.. Please post again if i misunderstood your question..
