And if you mean the harddrive then no issue
usely the harddrive begins to make sounds because it is working

but if you got a new hardrive from todays 2008 hardrives and it is one of those silent ones than somethings wrong

but usely older harddrives make noise when at work

Do you mean the fan is running more loudly?

It's possible the additional heat from the hard drive is raising the temperature inside the case. Most fans are thermostatically controlled (they run more the hotter the PC is) so you'd expect this.

Will it affect the motherboard? If the the fan is running properly, no. The PC should shut itself down before thermal damage occurs. Make sure you don't have it tucked into a space where there's no airflow.

Make sure all the vents are clear (vacuum if necessary); I will even open the case and vacuum, but if you don't know what you're doing, I don't recommend this.

FUJITSU MHT2060B-SATA hard drive driver wanted


Get the drivers from the motherboard homepage, extract the file at a floppy or USB, and start WinXP installation from your cd. At the begining at the bottom line is a message like "for ... drivers press F6 to install" Press F6 and after sometime the will prompt you to provide the drivers from the floppy. In the WinXP sp3 the generic SATA drivers are already on the installation cd.

Barracuda hard disk 80gb


More than likely, since you say you did a DOS install of the OS, you did not set the FDISK parameters to set your primary drive. Insert the DOS CD you used to format the system. Boot to a DOS prompt and run the FDISK command. It should have an option, I believe it is number 2 or 3 to "Set primary drive". Select your hard disk 0 as this drive and you should be fine at rhat point.

My dvd rw is not detected


Sounds like you need your manufacturer's SATA drivers.

This problem exists a lot when installing Windows from scratch on SATA hard disks. When you start the installation, Windows prompts you to "load additional drivers". It's at this point you put a floppy disk with the SATA drivers in.

If your install is already working, but just stopped as you say... then you could hunt around the BIOS for a SATA "compatibility" mode, which will get you booting straight away. Install the SATA drivers and you can then put the drive back into normal operation instead of compatibility mode.

This is also the reason why your other hard disk with Windows can see the SATA disk and optical drive... it probably has the SATA drivers installed.
