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.

Hi,
HDD not Detecting only Some region, if you HDD data cable damage, HDD power Cable damage, HDD port damage, or HDD bad sector. But normally you change HDD data or power cable or mother board port. And i suggest mother board all connection disconnect and only HDD connect and open bios and search your HDD detected.

I have a 250gb seagate sata but when i put my 80gb IDE hdd it only detects in booting and in bios but after that if i open my computer i cant see my 80gb IDE Hdd and even in device manager my hard disk was...


there was wrong in the set up of jumper in your 80gb hdd. Look closely to the 80gb harddrive, in between the ide cable terminal and the power supply connector you will see 8pin terminals paired together and a jumper use to short the paired terminals. It is most likely that the jumper was configure to detect your hdd as master. If the ide cable you use for the 80gb hdd was also use for the dvd/cdrom drive then it will conflict with it if both jumper setting was set to master. See the description of jumper settings in the sticker of the hdd. Position the jumper to slave.

Reboot your system again and see if the 80gb finally appear in your system. When system boot upon detection of hdd, the primary master should be 250gb while your primary/secondary slave will be read your 80gb hard disk.

Computer powers on and runs but it will not post hhd in BIOS. any help?


Shut down you're system. Open you're case and double check the power cable and data cable from hdd to motherboard. (Disconnect both cables and re-connect both). Make sure the cables are fully inserted. Power up the system and enter the bios. The hdd drive should be listed. If not replace the data cable with a new one and check the bios again.
If you have two hdd, ATA IDE drives connected, make sure that each hdd is jumpered correctly. One set to Master with a slave.
The second drive should be jumpered as a slave.
If you're running 1 hdd make sure the hdd is jumper as a Master without a slave. There is a sticker on the hdd to help you set the jumper correctly.
If the bios still does not see you're hdd than either the hdd is bad or the motherboard controller is bad.
To check if the hdd is faulty, check the sticker on the drive. Find the manufacture's name and model. Google the manufacture's name. Every manufacture provides free software that will test and repair the drive by allowing you to create either a bootable floppy disk or bootable CD disk that runs in a DOS like window. Example: For a Seagate drive you would download SeaTools for DOS. Instructions are listed on the site; http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
Seagate also supports Maxtor drives using the same software.

Good luck!

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.
