What hard drive?

Posted on Apr 21, 2014

Testimonial: "It is a 80GB Western Digital that comes with the S6410 laptop. I found that the default setting enabled AHCI. As soon as I disabled it, all was well again. Does not make sense that the deafult setting is not correct."

    Writing motherboard BIOS's is quite different today compared to even 2000. They are farmed out to code shops in a piecemeal fashion with as many as 10 different shops and contractors working on a single BIOS. Then you have different companies that want to use the board asking for cuts and additions to their specific needs. It's a wonder sometimes that they work at all.

Hi I've Vaio VPCSC1AFM with Win 7, boot is impossible -"Operating System Not Found", HDD is also not visible in BIOS. I can hear that HDD is working.

* Look in your BIOS, I've it can detect the HDD.
( Press the F1 or F10 key after restarting the computer) * Make sure all the cables are connectedproperly.

* It might be a jumper setting.

I've you have 2 HDD's on 1 cable, you need to have 1 Master & 1 Slave,or else your HDD(s) wont show up & other problems.

Jumper settings below (Yourjumper settings might be different !)

I've this all didnt work, either your HDD or your MOBO is broken.

Lap top can't find hard drive


Here are some steps that you can try.

- Check if the harddrive is recognized in the BIOS (Basic Input Output System). Normally you will see values beside "Drive 0" at the first page if the harddrive is detected. If it says none or blank, then it is not detected. Reload BIOS default settings and try to boot up the unit to see if it will pick up the harddrive.
- If the harddrive is not detected in the BIOS, you need to unscrew the harddrive compartment at the bottom of the laptop.
- Reinsert the harddrive and check harddrive cable. Also try to use a good known harddrive if yours is defective.

Hope this helps.

My HP 530laptop won't see any hard drive installed. No hard drive listed in bios . Can the bios be repaired if corrupted and id so can someone tell me the procedure? thanks in advance

If you want to try to repair the bios, in most case clearing the cmos would do it, and reset it to factory default. To do this, you are going to have to tear your laptop apart until you can get to the motherboard, there should be this nickel size battery installed somewhere on your motherboard. You will need to take this battery out for at least 15sec to let the cmos reset. Reinstall the battery, and put your laptop back togheeter, once powering up, it will prompt you to load default which you will have to set your system time agian. If you just want to load default value and not totally clear everything, you can go into your bios menu and on the exit tab, there is a load default value, and you can do this to set default value, but will not fully clear the bios. In your case of your laptop not seeing or reading your hard drive, ask yourself is it one harddrive or any multiple harddrive you had previous installed. If it is only one harddrive or the original harddrive, It could be dead, damaged, and that why the O.S cannot detect it and so with the BIOS menu too. Other then that, it could a bad hard drive expansion connection, since Hp laptop are known to heatup pretty hot.

Make sure harddrive is recognized in bios. You can check it in bios setup for that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del aLT+F2 key to enter in bios then you can see bios setup load optimal defaults settings Check your harddisk is recognized in main bios page. Open cpu cabinet then reconnect RAM memory and both connection to harddrive . Then check. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a dell gx 260. orked great for 1 month when

Hello there:
It looks like to me that your bios is not recognizing the harddrive or is not set up properly like user settings or default settings
I would first go into bios and make sure that the bios is set to the harddrive that is installed.
And also in the boot sequense look on this and see if the harddrive is listed there if it is make sure that it is the top one and not the bottom one than save and reboot the computer when it boots back up it should tell show your harddrive and cd rom if connected properly than if all is good now just continue with your xp[ installation or what ever you were doing ok
I hope that this is very helpful for you
best regards righard

No boot but with power and fan moving

when your bios setting is wrong, you just have to set it to default by unplug it and then plug it again..and done, your bios is set to default
have you try change your data cable?it maybe damage
or could posibly your harddrive is damaged, you can try a simple experiment, try it to another computer, or try the motherboard with another harddrive....if its OK, then you have no problem with your harddrive......and perhaps your motherboard are damaged...
