Did you format the drive with the NTFS file system?

First make sure usb cable connected to harddrive is working fine. try it in different usb ports. Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers. then check. Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11 CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check.

Is there any tool to format WD2500BEV so that it detects in Ubuntu & XP

if you split the drive into 2 partiions one for uburutu and 1 in fat or ntsf ubuntu will have to be loaded first or have 2 different drives and just hit f12 during boot and pick the drive (as long as you have f12 to slect which drive you wish to boot into) otherwise you will have to enter bios every time to change drives to the drive which boots first

Jumper settings

If you try to enter in safe mode or at last known config and the laptop reboots or freezes then you need to reinstall the operating system if you want to use that hard drive on hp pavilion a1000n. The laptops have different chipset and XP requires to be the same or similar chipset to boot properly.

I just bought a harddrive because my old drive went. so I hooked up the new drive and turned it on, but i get nothing but a blank screen

hi there,
please unplug new harddrive and see if computer boots up without it.
if it does list all the other cd/dvd drives, then you did someth. wrong upon installing the new drive.hook up again, see the jumper settings in the back(must be set to single ) if attached to 1st IDE-channel, else if you hook it up to a cd-drive, set jumper on cd to master, onharddisk to slave, check power connection, reassemble pc, boot up.
Got a screen now? hdd should belisted! now insert windows installation cd and proceed...

if system still does not recognize the drive, then enter BIOS(press F2 or Del or F1 during booting)set all drive detection to automatic, leave saving BIOS-settings, press F10), reboot.

Problem solved?else come back on fixya.Good Luck

Hi, It is possible that your anti-virus quarantined suspected files but are required for booting up Windows. You can try: 1. Booting in Safe Mode to check things out; 2. Boot in last known good configuration; 3. Re-install Windows using the "repair" option. Experience has taught me that the safest was re-partitioning, re-formatting and do a complete fresh/clean/new install of the OS. Good luck and kind regards.

Wd800jd sata hard drive not recognized in bios on boot up

Hi, A couple of ideas: 1. There are 3 versions of this motherboard: Dragon Plus, V1.0 & V2.0, perhaps your BIOS needs an update to be able to recognize the new HD. This of course would require flashing; 2. There are two variations of a WD SATA hard drive: Serial ATA amd Serial ATA II; 3. Re Jumper settings: the eight-pin jumper block is only used to enable power management on the drive. There are no master/slave settings since there is only one drive per cable; 4. If you are fresh installing Windows on it, you need to press F6 when asked by the Windows Installer and follow on-screen instructions. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information.

Only recignises the HP as- storage device

Hi, Have you checked the boot sequence in bios? Make sure it is booting from the hard drive first. If that still doesn't work, maybe it's because this is a different motherboard that you are installing the hard drive to. You might need to obtain a win xp cd and perform a repair of the Operating System or just wipe all data off (if you don't need any on it) and do a fresh install of windows xp.
