I just bought a Dell Latitude C510/C610 ...it will post to the bios ok but will not find the new hard drive I just bought ...it is an 80 Gb WD. When I go to the bios I can only change the date on the first...


Try to find the setting for what is listed below....it may help out with the laptop finding the new drive. Even if your new drive is a SATA configuration, try below it may help you.

BE SURE that you put the Hard Drive on "Compatibility" mode in BIOS, which was defaulted to "AHCI" (Compatibility is also known as IDE).

To change that setting, you need to do the following:

1. Press F2 when booting up the computer
2. Select 'Config', then 'Serial ATA (SATA)'
3. Change controller option to 'Compatibility' / 'IDE'

Hard drive issues


I'm assuming this is an internal drive since you are mentioning it not appearing in the bios. If the hard drive is not recognized by the bios check to make sure that the power and IDE or SATA drives are plugged in all the way. If there power, you will hear the unit spin up when you start the machine. If you do not hear the drive spin when the machine starts, make sure the power (for pin) plug is plugged in all the way and attached to the power supply.

If the drive does spin up, then verify the IDE cable (flat ribbon cable with long rectangular connectors at both ends) is plugged in all the way and that it is oriented in the correct direction. There is normally a key at the top (square pin) so that the cable only goes one way. If there is no "key," look at the drive. One end should be labled with pin "1". One side of your cable should have a line that is different than the rest of the cable (normally red). This corresponds to pin "1."

Make sure that the IDE cable is completely plugged in at both the drive and the mother board.

If this is a SATA drive, then you should verify that the SATA cable is attached firmly to the hard drive and the mother board. My guess is that your drive is an IDE drive.

Hope this helps - flub

New hard drive latitude c610


The make does not matter - in fact Dell does not make their own hard drives.

Just be sure you get the right type, most have IDE type connectors with pins but some of the newer models are using SATA drives. Yours is an older model so it should take IDE.

From the Bios, load all the default settings and then check the bios SATA port settings. If it is set to AHCI, change it to IDE to boot from Hard Drive. This should solve the problem
