Problem with 160GB HDD

I connected a 160GB seagate Barracuda7200.9 HD to my system, The power cable wasn't too good and it made a short-circuit in the 160GB HD, with smoke included. It fried the contacts and one diode, is it possible to replace the diode and make disk functional? if so can you please suggest me the part number of the diode?

Thanks in Advance..

Hi there! I think it's not possible to replace the diode as these components are machine soldered to the board. If a machine soldering facility is available to you, you could possibly replace the diode (choose the same diode model adjacent to the one which is damaged. All the best to u.

Computer did not bootup after adding 2nd harddrive


Did you connect the drive to cable spot closest to the motherboard on the primary IDE channel? is it formatted? Did you try the drive on the Second IDE channel? Can your system support a 160 GIG drive?(if not try partitioning the drive.). Is the power and data cable connected properly?(the red line on the data cable should be closest to the power plug on the drive.)

Hello looking for some advice on a st3160022ace on a a7n8x-vm


Hi omega_1_80, two things come to mind. I gather you used the data cable from the MSI system when you switched to it. Try connecting a new data cable (80-pin) in your system. Set the bios to Auto for the PATA 160 drive. If the drive still seems funny turn off S.M.A.R.T. See if these suggestions help.

Good luck omega_1_80!

I PLUG IN A BRAND NEW WESTINGH. HARD DRIVER 160 GB AND COMPUTER S


did you configure the 160GB hard drive as second???
there is a shorting pin between the ribbem cable and the power cable.
take a look on the hard drive, there should have adiagram shows where the shorting pin need to go to make it as secondary drive.
install the hard drive as secondary drive.
if you want the drive to be the primary. you nee to install the operating system on it.
with out operating system the machine will boot up in to DOS only, and a error message telling you the drive has no loader.

HDD Connection


Hi, you'll need one of these: http://www.csncables.com/Cables-to-Go-1018X-GY1352.html (Data cable).
& one of these:
http://www.mwave.com/mwave/Skusearch_v2.asp?scriteria=BA00307 (Power cable IDE 4-pin to SATA drive). Unless your current power supply has a SATA power connector.
Open your manual to the top of page 1-24. SATA data cables connect one way only. It does not take much to break the ( L ) shape end of either the data cable or the SATA power cable.
(All SATA drives are seen a master drives). When in your bios choose the correct drive under Boot > Boot order.
Need more info, just ask.

Good luck!

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
