That is an Asrock board and Yes, any standard hard drive will work with it. The reasons for your problem in descending liklihood:

>The hard drive has failed
>Drive is not activated; enter Disk Manager and activate it.
you can use a external hard disc connector ,,, but still you must open the box ,, i think the guarantee is already void ,,, cause misuse is not guaranteed any way you must ask about the guarantee thing ,,,
Basic guidance in removing the Harddrive from a Samsung S2 Portable,
1) It looks as though the outside front is a thick cover like a label. It may be that you peel back the corners, and there will be a screw in each corner.
(For example; Where it states Samsung. Go to the right corner. Does this cover-like material peel back? Is there a screw underneath? Remove it. Go to the opposite corner. Now above to the left and right corners)
The unit looks to come apart in two halves.
Might just be held together by sticky tape.
Here are some videos performing opening the external enclosure, (Case) of other external portable harddrives,
I guess you've got a broken laptop power dc jack or power cable.
Symptoms of a broken Laptop DC power jack:
- The laptop only operates when you hold the DC power plug in a certain direction (DC jack is broken or loose). - The laptop only runs on battery power (no power is getting through the DC jack). - The laptop gets no power at all. - The laptop will not charge the battery. - The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently due to a loose or broken power jack. - The laptop suddenly shuts off. - The DC jack may feel loose. - Sparks come out of the back of the laptop when you insert the power plug into the DC jack.
Sorry to hear that you are still having trouble. The only other thing to try is your battery on your buddies notebook. If it works there then it is the charging mechanism on your notebook and this would mean replacing the motherboard.
First of all make sure that the USB port that you are using to connect it to your PC is a USB 2.0 port, and not USB 1.0.
Also if it came with an external power, connect it to the external power before putting on your PC.
This is because the voltage supplied by USB 1.0 is lower than that of USB 2.0 and therefore might not be enough to power up your USB Drive.
After making sure about this, power up your system, and plug the external drive, then Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.
On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your external drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.
This should make your external Drive to be detected automatically.
you need to buy a new jack for replacement. then solder the broken one out of the mainboard and clean the place and solder the new one. or some acer have a separet jack then that one is easy only to change.
sounds like a mother board replacement,if theres a repair shop in your place,you can ask them if they can replace your DC jack..its hard to replace it since its soldered onto the board..mobo replacement is the fastest way..
