Question about Computers & Internet

Cannot find operating system

I have an emachine I purchased in 2000 which has given me great service.
In recent months it has been having trouble getting started and the difficulty has been increasing. It has a Samsung 15GB Hard-drive.

I found that cooling the PC in the fridge enabled me to get it to start most times. In the past 2 weeks it has become much more difficult. On some days I have been able to get it to start. On other days I have not.

When the system searches for the hard-drive it seems to stop the search too quickly. When it does find it it takes 10 - 20 seconds. When it does not it says so in about 1 second

Toshiba hard drive not recognized


Every connection point is an opportunity for failure. Please check the cable and connections between the computer and the drive enclosure, and if there is a power supply, then check that connection as well.

I have a toshiba P205-S6267 laptop with windows vista it had a 120 Gigabyte drive out of the box I installed a 500GB hard drive wastold that this would make the motherboard crash or operating system...


The "worst" that could happen would be that the motherboard would either:

* not recognize/support the "large" disk-drive at all,

* would only be able to access "part" of the disk-space, e.g., the first 128GB or 256GB or 512GB of disk-space.

However, those possibilities only occurred with "older" motherboards.

Given the specifications for your computer: http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/product/pdf_files/detailed_specs/satellite_P205-S6267.pdf

and the fact that Microsoft Vista is pre-installed, you must have a "recent" motherboard, and it will support any serial-ATA disk-drive (500GB, 1TB, 2TB, ... ) that you can afford to purchase.

HD stops working after 45 seconds


It seems you figure out the issue. If its under warranty then have it the "power" replaced.

Installing windows


1. Windows 2000 / XP maximum hard drive size 137 gigabyte limit

This one was fun. To install a hard drive larger than 137 gigabytes on your computer you need the following:

a motherboard, such as the Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 which support the 48 bit hard drive addressing. Only new motherboards can be counted on to support this.

Windows 2000 service pack 3 or later. Windows XP service pack 1 and greater have this support built in. I assume this isn't a problem with Linux at all...

SimpleTech 320GB Hard Drive- unable to detect the device


I had a similar problem with a SimpleTech 250g Pininfarina USB drive.
I went through the drivers, the power supply, the USB cables, and the various
computers, USB cards and Operating systems.
Finally I opened the case and found the disk drive was mounted too far
forward, causing the IDE connector to barely touch. I loosened the mount screws,
slid the drive back towards the connector, tightened everything down and it works.
