Set the BIOS to auto for the hard drive and it should find it and set it as needed.

If it still does not find it there is a chance that any problem may be with the hard drive itself.

Probably need to replace the hard drive and reinstall your operating system. Can you boot from a cd? Do a hard drive test and post the results.

Your problem is most likely the SATA data and power cables. for tips on the two cables. the system should detect the SATA hard disk automatically,
( you only need, setting the hard disk support as a second hard disk to the system in the bios setup )

A disk read error occured and keep on re-start


Please check that the hard disk is connected properly. If you know that the hard disk is working, check whether it is detected or not. If it's not detected, you'll need to recheck it again with the power supply. If possible, try it to another Laptop so that you can make sure that Hdd isn't the culprit. In case it's detected and the problem still persists, repair the operating system installation, this will definitely solve your problem. Good luck.

Not detecting hard drive


Need to know what operating system you are using. Win XP should see the external (I'm assuming it's a USB drive). Are you sure the USB port is working? Try another.
You may have to right-click on My Computer, and choose Manage from the menu. Go to disk management to see if the computer sees the device (probably Disk 1 for you). You may have to enable it.

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.

Dell Latitude D600 with new Hitachi 30GB Drive Not Recognizing


XP install is not detecting any hard disk.
No jumpers are required for laptops, can only have one hard drive in a laptop.
Check the BIOS for the hard disk configuration, make sure that it is set on Auto (detect).
You may have a faulty hard disk, you can check it by booting up with a floppy DOS boot disk, run fdisk to see if it detects the hard disk, OR connect this hard drive to a USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port and if it detects it as an external drive the it is OK.

My pc will not load up with windows xp eventually got into the bios page & found the hard drive didnt show up as been identified


Read this whole post you might want to try the last paragraph first.

Take your hard drive out of your computer. In another system configure that hard drive as a master using the jumpers on the back of the drive the configuration should be on the drive itself although it is sometimes obscured.

Set your drive as a slave, again with the jumpers. Install your hard drive and boot the system up.

If the other system does not boot up or if it boots up and cannot detect your hard drive or your hard drive appears empty it is bad. You have to replace it.

If you are successful in seeing with folders, remove the cmos battery from your system for 30 seconds then reinstall and boot it up. This will place your bios to factory defaults and it may detect it.

Update on Boot up problem with Versa P600


I have had this problem many many times at the Lab over the years, in fact I have even owned a PC that did exactly as you describe! ... What I found out was... SOME hard Drives seem to work OK, others??? It seems to be a "Timing" issue with the Hard Disk Controller.. There is NO FIX as such.. that I have ever found, Sometimes ya can find a brand of Drive that will work with.. ALWAYS.. but for the most part.. it's either put up with it.. OR get a new motherboard/PC. I have torn my hair out more than once as I said.. But essentially it is a Motherboard fault, specifically, the Hard Drive Controller, thats is at fault..
