Question about Maxtor Fireball 541DX (2B020H1) 20 GB Hard Drive
My brother sent me a working HP Pavilion 523n tower minus its hard drive. When I installed my Maxtor 541DX drive, the pc won't boot at all. Can't even get into CMOS/BIOS....the monitor just stares at me blankly as though there's simply no signal input whatsoever. But the computer powers on, just no other apparent signs of life. This is a working drive installed in a working computer....what might be the problem? Any help is greatly appreciated!
Sounds like a faulty hard drive mate, if you download this software http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools/ and run it, it will install hard drive test software onto a floppy disk for you to test the drive from boot,
Happy new year
