Only thing to do is get the make and model from each drive and check the makers support site for specs or Google the model.

Why mother board donot respond to hard disk maxtor n256 40 gb ?


What Motherboard are you using and what BIOS - I suppose it is an IDE drive (40Gb) On the older HDD you should check your jumper settings to identify the drive as a Primary or Secondary drive.Make sure the IDE cable is properly connected. This can be tricky sometimes as one of the pins could have bent.
Make sure the drive actually spins when you power the computer on. Hold you hand lightly on the drive, and you should feel a slight vibration. If all of this is ok then -

when you boot up, go into the BIOS and see if the BIOS picks up the drive. If this is all ok, then your HDD maybe formatted with an incompatible file system and you would need to run a FIXDISK. Or the HDD is just shot. Try with another drive to verify.

I have a Soltek SL-K8AV2-R1L with one 160 gb sata harddisk (with XP on it), a 40 gb IDE harddisk on IDE channel 0, and two DVD/CD-drives on IDE channel 1. Tried to reinstall XP but XP setup did not...


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. The first thing you need to check is if the SATA Hard Disk is detected in Bios. In the system information you will see there the list of the drives including the DVD and the IDE hard drive. You can also check the Boot Sequence or Priority if it is there. Please let me know if you find the SATA hard disk on the list.


Thanks

My computer's hard disk seagate 40 Gb is damaged but it will show in bios set up . how can i recover my data back plz tell me.


The best way to recover your data if you cannot boot up your computer. Remove the hard disk and attach it to an USB hard drive adapter. Plug this adapter into a working computer's USB port and this computer should see this as an external storage device. You can then open the folders and files to backup/copy, provided the hard drive is not faulty.

No hard disk found


From what you describe, your 40GB should be compatible with Tecra 9100.
I'd suggest you reset the BIOS settings to the factory defaults, just to ensure there are no wierd settings. Have you managed to use any other HDD with your Tecra 9100 previously?

Have You checked for a BIOS update for this model / vintage ?

Adding a hard drive to a PC


You need to set the little jumpers at the rear of the hard drive and the cd rom drive. Set the hard drive as Master and the cd rom as Slave. Both devices should then be recognized.
