The specifications to enter the information manually, are on top of the harddrive. Kind of hard to discern, huh? That's because harddrive sizes from 6.4GB through 20.4GB are listed on top.
C/H/S = Cylinders/Heads/Sectors
The Quantum Fireball CX10A011 hardrive is a 10.2GB harddrive.
You will see -> C/H/S....10.2 - 16383/16/63 on top.

That is ,
16,383 Cylinders
16 Heads
63 Sectors

As for the 40GB model, it should be similar. If not, come back and post.

Preciso identificar heads, sectors, cylinders de um HD Quantum Fireball Lct20 40 GB

run the chkdsk utility
i have found the easiest way for me of doing this is to
click start right click on my computer you should see your drive usually C: select properties click tools check now tick both boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery on any bad sectors or you could tick one box and wait until its finished then return and tick the other box
then select check now,start should schedule this task when restart

do not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer
then defragment your hard drive also download and run a registry cleaner cc cleaner is 100%free
hope this helps you

Its a very old hard disk, few things you can do,

1.. Get into your pc's bios and see if 32bit access is enabled for your disk, if not enable it, reboot.
2.. Goto control panel > device manager , double click on your IDE controller and check had disk status, if is on PIO mode or UDMA , must be at UDMA. Set it if not.
