My Dell System Optiplex 520 having 160 GB Hard SATA disk drive. when i turn on my PC then show error : auto sensing second slave hard disk drive" i restart my PC several time then Turn on my PC window....

Go to BIOS by pressing the F10 button(may vary product to product).
check the boot option, it might be changed, you need to change it for 160 GB hard disk.

If it does not works, then it might be the failure of harddisk.
Contact you Vender in this case.

welcome to FixYa!

here is what you do
1.unplug the power of your hard disk from main board
2.try to use another power cable from the board to your hard drive check if it isn't loose connection
3.then switch the SATA cable in any two middle ports of your board ,, not lower or upper.
4. start PC and enter into bios . check in drive configuration that is your hard disk being detected by the main board or not , if it detects and shows your hard drive space e.g MAXTOR S2154213 500GB
then restart system and do your work ..

i hope you would comment if your problem is solved or unsolved ,, comment here ill help you .!

I have a maxtor 250GB black usb 2.0 hard drive that is no longer recognised by my PC. The usb port works OK with other USB appliances. Its not a high speed 2.0 port but thats not been a problem in the...

Try connecting this drive to another PC/laptop. If the hard disk does not get recognised, you may have to seek help from Maxtor / authorised service personnel to diagonse the issue with the hard drive. Given that there is circuitry in between the actual physical disk and its USB port connector, chances are that the data on the hard disk would be safe and the intermediate circuitry may have suffered a brown-out. Good luck!

Warranty on Maxtor 40gig hard drive with mfg date of 28jan2004 new never used won't work

Is your hard disk getting detected in the BIOS?. If so are you able to partition the hard disk. If not check the power and cable.

Hard Drive Problems

I suspect that the ribbon cable (seatbelt looking cable) in the computer has possibly come loose. Especially if both HDD's can't be seen.

Possible too that the CMOS has lost the specifications of the HDDs. Press F2 or DEL key while booting (depends on the CMOS/computer type).

Or, both hard drives have gone bad, which is unlikely that both at the same time went out.

Please rate FixYa! or clarify with more information or testing results.
