you need to do this on a brand new low level formatted, and high level formatted hard drive. you must have the install disk, and a internet connection, and a properly running system available to work along side.

You can reformat this old drive; however, personally, I wouldn't bet on using it. hard drives are cheap these days. let me know.

Dear Ahrjae,
You are Toast! The last thing a technician wants to do is format a hard disk. A good format erases everything (all the software and corrupted software) and the hard-drive has the smallest amount of information on it (software) waiting to be shaped by the DVD's (Software) you are going to load it up with.
If you have a bad hard-drive you need to determine if it is a software problem or a hardware problem. Some times it is both. If it is software you can delete the program and re-install it. if it is a hardware / software problem you can run a scandisk program and other utilities to fix bad sections on the hard-drive. Electrically cut off bad sections so no memory 1's and 0's will be stored on bad sections of the magnetic hard-disk. Then you can delete bad programs and re-install them.
Sometime the hard-drive fails due to hardware problems. My favorite story is the comparison of the pickup head gliding over a hard disk (metal) and occasionally crashing to an airplane flying 600mph over the earth. Where the airplane would be destroyed if it hit the earth, in the hard-drive the pick-up head gouges out parts of the metal disk.
So your solutions: Buy a new hard drive and format it or take the unit in to be repaired. Hope you have made your restore disks.

Given E-Machine 366I2. Will not take new hard Drive

Shouldnt think it was the cables since you got as far as you have. Could be a problem on the drive and you might want to do a low level format to make sure. Drive type should not matter. Western Digital has a low level format utility on there site.

my other thought is that for some restores you have to have the exact components present that originally came with the machine. so, unplug everything but keyboard, mouse and video. put back to original amount of memory.

use a windows disk to do restore from scratch instead of restore disk. good luck.

Sounds like the repair man used a Oem restore disk,You will need to use a OS install disk now and do a fresh install.

Error to Detect, hardisk must be formatted

The problem might not be with the HHD instead it could be your bios setup. you will have to download drivers for the bios of you laptop and install them in your operating system then try to access the hard-disk.
