You really don't have enough information here for anyone to offer any detailed answers. I have had problems in the past with the ribbon connectors being connected incorrectly to the wrong devices. I mean, if the connector can support 2 devices, make sure the correct plug (ends or middle) is connected to the motherboard (or device), in the proper orientation. Also on the hard drive, check to make sure that the jumper in back of the drive is set properly for master or slave device. If you have another device connected to the ribbon cable, one HAS to be a master, and the other HAS to be the slave drive. Finally, check through all your BIOS settings relating to the connected EIDE and ATAPI drives you are using, to make sure all the settings are where they should be. If you are not sure how they should be set, use the "Save with failsafe settings". This will reset the BIOS to the most basic, usable settings.

This Emachine will not boot from HD or CD. The screen only says Emachine.


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the using arrow key scroll down to advanced bios features press enter check to make sure the first boot device is set to your hard drive

IDE-0 means Pri master ?
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?
IDE-2 means Sec master ?
IDE-3 means Sec slave ?
you can change it to cd if you want to install an operating system

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 dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be 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 or just replace them they could be faulty ?

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem

a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


make sure the CPU central processing unit has thermal paste and dust free and is securely seated


make sure your computer ram modules are securely seated with no dust in sockets also Cmos battery has charge with no dust in the socket some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


hope this helps

Motherboard fails to see Hard Drive...please help


Sounds like you lost an ide channel, swap the ide cables around, primary to secondary and secondary to primary. and see if it recognizes the hard drives and not the cdrom.

I lost an IDE channel and had to install a sata hard drive or run the hard drive and cdrom on the same ribbon. If you run HD and CDROM on same ribbon set both to CS (cable select)

Toshiba Laptop A60-S166 fdisk won't recognize hard disk? ACPI Bios Version = 1.40 Bios setting Drives I/O where it says Built in HD = No Drive Built-in ODD = Secodary IDE(170/IRQ15 Won't let me get into...


Hmmm. Unusual report, "secondary optical disk". Sounds like you have a primary and secondary IDE setup. Something desktops had, but rare for laptops. Because of this, I would try setting the HD to "master". Most IDE HDDs have some extra pins beside the IDE pins, 4 or 6 pins in a separate compartment, same side as IDE jack. These are for choosing "master", "slave", and (default) auto detect. To find out which pins must be connected, look for a diagram on the lable or side of HDD. If none there, look up the specs on your HDD at the manufacturer's website. If all fails, It does not hurt to use "trial and error" on these pins. Either BIOS will be happy, -or ignore the setting. Try again until you find the right one. You need a small jumper to try this. If you are VERY careful not to wrap more than two pins, you can do this with a single wire from a copper stranded wire. Use hemostats and clip the excess off clean. Use a magnifying glass to verify it only touches (connects) two pins.

Personally, I would try THIS first, but it will cost you a bit of money... Buy an external IDE HDD case, with USB connector, insert your HD, plug it into a desktop PC, mount it, and use FDISK there. Always better to format a 2.5 inch drive via ext methods. Avoids funky BIOS corruptions, wacky 8mb Toshiba "recovery partitions" and MBR viruses. Also avoids the LBA limits many older laptops have, if YOU format the drive externally. This can also be the only problem. Not jumpers, but format methods. If the laptop is older than 3 or 4 years, I would suggest restricting ALL partitions to FAT32. Maybe C, D and E. Afterwards, the external USB case is a GREAT device to have, for exporting/storing large files from your laptop.

Let me know how it goes

So the HD is not recognized at all or do you see it in the BIOS? If you don't see it at all then obvious things to check are the power cable, and the IDE or SATA cable. If it's an IDE drive it's not too difficult to bend a pin while attaching the connector. I would check that. I'm guessing you did not change any jumpers on the drive. Last thing I can think of is to be sure the BIOS settings are correct depending on if it's an IDE or SATA drive.
