Did you go into the bios and enable the sata for the hard drive and does the bios detect the hard drive by name and size

Not make instal xp new hard drive "seagate baracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS, and my motherboard dont see hard for instal


It seems you are saying that the board will not see the new hd.
You need the instructions for the hard drive and the mother board to install the SATA drive.
Some motherboards may need to have the bios upgraded, if it can.
Others are too old.

Asus motherboard cannot detect Seagate SATA drive


Does your internal speaker beeps or stops telling you there is no hd detection?
Try to put another hd.
If you are using Windows reinstall it.
Does the red light blinks
CHECK out the power chord to hd and all power connections from psu

Seagate SATA Baracuda 160 GB harddrive crashed


I've found this to just be the nature of hard drives. You never really can trust them, thats why you always need a backup. Maybe look into a fault tollerant RAID solution if it's really important (kinda expensive)

Bad sectors and fails under minor load


No it's not repairable. Copy any data you want from it to another drive, cd, dvd, etc. Go to www.seagate.com and fill out a warranty RMA form. If it's warranty you'll get a new one from Seagate

Sata/raid not working on ASUS M2N MB


You may need to set up the RAID array before it will be detected. Look in the BIOS and see if there is a way to set up the RAID array there. If there isn't, watch as the PC boots up and see if there is an option to go into the RAID settings before windows starts. You may need to actually create an array before it will be seen.

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
