Hi Raysgirl

Happy Holydays
you may have to take out the the hard drive, and buy new one for this particula BAD SECTOR, error on HD. you also have to move the pin, on the CD rom to Cable Select, and left the IDE hard disk to Master.(PIN)
that should work, and put in bios AUTODETECT for all devices in channels. IDE 1 and IDE 2
good luck

Set bios for 2hdd


You don't need to set master and slave in the bios.
On IDE hard drives you make sure the jumpers on the hard drive are set to master and slave. It usually tells you which connectors the jumper needs to be on, on the drive where the data cable and power lead plug in. You don't need to do it on SATA drives.

You have a laptop computer; it is more than likely that the BIOS will not allow overclocking for that unit. Most laptops cannot be overclocked for good reason; they have limited resources and poor cooling engineering. O/clocking produces high heat and they just don't have the setup for additional cooling. For the most part that also applies to most retail desktops as well. The majority of overclockers use custom-built units with CPUs adn motherboard BIOS' that are set up for overclocking, such as Asus and Asrock boards. I overclocked my home build unit, but installed a water cooled system and extra case fan. Standard retail etail units are just not set up with that kind of quality.

older systems have 2 ata channels, each channel has a master and a slave so yes there can be two masters. you should set your boot hard disk to the primary (channel 0) master and the cdroms to master and slave on the secondary (channel 1) channel. the bios config jumper will allow you to config the bios, norm is for normal ops and there should indeed be two pins that you short together to clear the bios passwd

Even if you don't have driver for CD-DVD ROM with the Operating System,your BIOS must recognize the CD ROM.Set the BIOS to Default setting and check it recognise now.Check if you have disable anything related to CD ROM in your BIOS. Remove your CD Rom and place it again and check.

Drive light comes because of power supply to the CD-ROM.

If nothing works,Download the firmware update

If you are installing it as a 2nd drive you first must enable it in bios. Even after this you must use the disk management tools to bring the drive online, set a partition, & format. Once these steps are done then the drive will be recognized. If you are installing it as a new primary drive[clean, no o/s] then you must boot it up the first time with the o/s installation disk in order to format & install the operating system. Hopefully these tips will help you get it up and running. Good luck.

How do you replace proprerly a CD/DVD Drive?


HI there

I belive what you have done is ccaused a conflict on the ide channel that the dvd is on you should check the jumpers on the back of your new device and match it with the setting from your old cd.

you have three options master , slave . or cable select (cs) you can only have one master or one slave on each ribbon cable .

by what you are saying the second device on that channel must be a hard disk if you dont have your old cd drive check what the hdd is set on ie master then set your dvd to the oposite ie slave .

if your hdd is set to (cs) then also set your dvd to (cs)

this should get you going

Sony laptop won't detect hard drive


If the drive hasn't been formatted, that is normal. On some systems, you also have to force the BIOS to recognize the drive by entering the BIOS setup (check with Sony or manual to learn the key needed). Once you know the proper key to tap at power on (it varies, sometimes F1, F2, Esc - who knows?), you will be presented with a simple text screen with a number of different selectable items. Choose 'Set factory defaults' and the BIOS should look for the drive and set the parameters for you. If that still doesn't work, check through the other BIOS items and you should find 'Detect fixed (or hard) drive.'
Sometimes installing a larger drive than the original can cause problems and if the BIOS is older, it may set the drive parameters of the original drive and ignore the excess capacity.
