Hi there, removing the cable monitor has a diferent models and brand. some cable just screwing it by your hand both end. and some are connected built in to the screen, if you have this kind of model, you may need some tools and replacement cable for this. simple remove the screw of the monitor at each corner at the back of the screen and see if there is other screw at the back or bottom. then you can pull up the cover the screen and pick up the cable which is connected usally at the small board behind the picture tube which is the CRT Board. then replace the cable with the new one.

WD1001fals as slave


SATA Hard Disk as a Slave b> An SATA hard drive is an internal hard drive that connects to your computer's motherboard. It is even possible to connect multiple drives to the same computer; however, only one drive can be the master hard drive; the other(s) must be slave drives. This is because the master drive has the operating system installed and must be used to boot up the system. When installing a new SATA hard drive onto your computer, you must set it as a slave.

Power down your computer and disconnect the cables. Remove the Phillips screws from the exterior of the computer case and slide the case open to expose the interior of your computer. Identify the hard drive at the front of your computer, then slide the new SATA drive in underneath. Insert the smaller power cable into the power port on the side of the SATA hard drive. Follow the power cable running out of the current hard drive and insert it next to it on the motherboard. Pull out the ribbon cable, which has three different connection ports: one on each end of the cable and one in the middle. The connection port on the middle inserts into the slave drive and is slightly different than the other two ends (the pins built into the port are in different locations than the other ends). Insert the middle connection port into the ribbon port on the back end of the SATA hard drive. Plug one of the opposite ends of the cable (doesn't matter which one) into the SATA connection port on the motherboard (your current hard drive is inserted here). Once connected, this completes your slave drive connection. Second SATA 2 Hard Drive as a Slave b> Installing a second hard drive in your desktop PC or notebook is an option used to increase hard disk space without losing or transferring the data from your original hard drive. Using this method not only increases hard disk space, it also increases the virtual memory space for the Windows operating system, increasing operational efficiency. One of the ways in which a BIOS can recognize the second hard drive is to boot it as a slave drive, with the primary hard drive booted as a master drive.

Turn the PC off and remove the desktop chassis. Refer to the pin connector diagram. This is displayed on the sticker, on top of the hard drive, for the position of the slave pin. Place the plastic connector on the slave pin as detailed on the diagram. Connect the hard drive to the power and IDE/SATA cable. Ensure the other ends are connected to the motherboard. Use the screws to mount the drive. Replace the desktop chassis. Turn on the PC. Enter the BIOS, by default this can be done by pressing F2. If this does not work consult your motherboard manual. In the BIOS, press right until the boot device tab is highlighted. Set the slave drive to boot following the primary drive. Read the bottom line and use the relevant key to save the settings. Restart the PC.
Hope it helps.

How to troubleshoot a system that boots up but wont display



  • VGA cable replacement
  • Needle-nose pliers
  1. Power downthe computer. Check the VGA cable running from the computer to the monitor. If the cable is not snugly seated in both ports, the video signal will not reach the monitor.
  2. Check the connector on each end of the VGA cable. Examine the nine pins on each connector. If any of the pins are bent or broken, the video signal will not reach the monitor. If there are just a few bent pins, you maybe able to straighten them with a pair of needle-nose pliers. Be careful not to break off any of the pins. If any of the pins are broke nor missing, you will need to replace the VGA cable with a new one.
  3. Disconnect all cables and peripherals from the computer. Open the computer case by removing the Phillips screws along the side or back of the case. Remove the cover or side panel to expose the internal components. Locate the VGA card and make sure it is fully inserted into the PCI card slot. If the card is not installed correctly, the video signal will not reach the monitor.
  4. Close the case, reconnect the power cord and all cables, and power up the computer. The video signal should display on your monitor.

How to slave the hard drive


You must go to BIOS setup and follow the steps.God bless youHowever follow this steps:

Instructions
1
Remove the screws on your computer case and slide the cover off of the machine. Notice the hard drive bays in the front of the machine. The existing hard drive is installed in one of these bays.


2
Use the tweezers to set the jumper pins to "Slave" mode. The jumper pins are white connectors located on the back of the hard drive. Above the jumper pin section on the hard drive is the schema to set the drive to "Slave."




3
Insert the hard drive into the computer case bay underneath the existing drive. Screw in the drive and mount it to the case using the screws included with the hard drive packaging.


4
Connect the hard drive cable from the main hard drive to the secondary slave drive. There are two connectors on the hard drive cable. The very end of it is inserted into the main hard drive. The middle connection is used for the slave drive. Insert this secondary, middle connector into your newly installed drive.


5
Insert one of the power supply cables into the back of the hard drive. This supplies electrical power to the device.


6
Replace the case cover back onto the machine. Ensure you replace the screws to properly fasten it to the computer case.

WHITE DISPLAY ONLY WHEN I SWITCH IT ON


First thing is to remove the 15pin cable completely and closely inspect the pins inside the connectors. Often these inadvertently are bent when inserting the connector. If any are bent, use a fine pair of strong tweezers to straighten the pins. Once this is done, carefully re-attach the PC and Monitor ends of the i/o cable and boot up your PC.

If this does not work as a solution, reload the monitor driver for your monitor. You can usually obtain that free from the manufacturers website after entering the model number of the monitor.

Good luck

Cables all seem correctly plugged in at both ends yet the best I get from the monitor is a brief "No Signal". Is that likely to be a problem with the monitor or one of the cables? Until recently...


Test the PSU if the units fan is not working the power supply unit is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it or you might have a dirty graphics card remove the graphics card and clean the socket
hope this helps

Trying to change out power supply on a Gateway DX4822-01. Can hear hard drive spinning, but not getting anything on screen. Unplugged it yesterday. Now wondering if one of the 4-pin needs top be...


Trying the easiest solution first - It sounds as if the power is getting to the hard drive, but the information is not getting to the computer.

Is the IDE/SATA cable attached to the hard drive AND the motherboard?

Are the connections tight?

Is one end of the cable reversed - does pin 1 on the hard drive correspond to pin 1 on the motherboard?

Are the jumper settings on the hard drive set properly - Master/Slave/Cable select?

Are you replacing an IDE hard drive (uses a wide thin ribbon cable) with a SATA drive (uses a narrow, fatter cable). Can your motherboard handle a SATA drive? Perhaps you are trying to install the incorrect hard drive?

INPUT2: HD15 keeps coming up on my screen. i cant get through it. do i need to buy new input2: HD15 cable? the monitor is sony make and the hardrive is fujitsu siemens computer make


more information is needed for this question to be answered properly
im going to guss that this is your conection cable from video card to your monitor
try disconecting and reconecting the cable making shur that the cable is firmly conected at both ends
its posible that part of the tower case is preventing the full insertion of the cable into the socket
cut away 1/8 inch of the ruber shielding around the pc side of the cable so that it can fully be inserted into the conection
check that the pins on the male conection arn't bent or broken off

also run your closed hand down the cable itself checking for cracks cuts or breaks in the cable

if any problem is seen replace the cable if any pins are broken off check the femal reciver for the broken of part of the pin so as to not damage anothere cord
good luck

Screen is not clear ( red color is not there)


Check the cable for kinks at either end. VGA cables that are bent at a 90degree angle for lon periods of time become damaged. The next step is to remove cable from computer and check the pins for damage. A bent pin from accidental force from inserting and seating connector can catch a pin and contact with another pin or ground. If none of these conditions exist, consider monitor replacement. I would try another monitor to rule out the video card as well.
