The first issue is how you are connected. If it is IDE or SATA. Next is to ensure that the bios settings are set to enable the corresponding connection. Next ensure you have the cords or ribbons seated properly in the drive as well as the board, ensuring the power connection is secure. Good Luck!

Maxtor diamondmax VL 40 HDD 40 GB detected by CMOS in BIOS and not recognized in windows Xp operating system, need Help





Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
any bad or faulty power or data lead or connection can cause a computer to continually reboot
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


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd floppy have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs



power and data to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error



even something as small as a faulty power lead or fan lead can cause you problems

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



make sure ram modules and cmos batteries have dust free secure seatings and cmos battery has charge some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease

Maxtor 3100 200gb hard drive not detected on PC running xp


Here we have two things to check and understand.

1) Is the Bios Detecting this hardware. Or is it that the basic Motherboard itself is not accepting the HDD.

2) The version of OS you are running and if the pug and play is able to detect the Hardware as the second stage of detection.

Do you see any hardware detection notification when you connect the HDD or when you Start running the HDD ?

I would like you to check these which will give you a clear picture of the issue.

Else please write back.. The Hardware on which the HDD is connected. Motherboard Specs, and also the messages or notifcations that you might be getting while trying to connect the Hard Disk. Good Luck.

Instead of posting here, why don't you look for a dealer.

Maxtor 250 GB SATA problem: Foreign disk problem


Simple you need to update your bios by downloading bios updates for you motherboard. Then it should recognise your HDD. The yellow triange just means your mboard does not have the necessary drivers to recognise the device. thanks
