WD200 internal Hard Drive

Hi, Just installed a 20Gbt HDD, runs fine some of the time, but more often I hear a series of 4 "clicks" and the drive is not recognised by the BIOS, and therefore can not start Windows (XP)

    Thanks for the quick responce, but not what I really wanted to hear! as I have just bought it on eBay. I suppose there's no way the problem could be with jumper pins, or BIOS setup etc.?

FYI, if the bios or jumpers are wrong, it won't work at all. You can try running chkdsk /f from the run window. That may fix it if it bad sectors, but odds are kman is right.

Safest is way to install a removable drive tray such as Welland EZStor ME-751 Trayless HDD Rack 5.25" Bay for 3.5" SATA HDD/SSD - Anti-Shock, Scratch-Proof.
Then you can swap HDD anytime.
You can also install new (now upgrade) Windows 8.1 on a 2nd HDD internally. But sometimes the 2nd OS can damage the first OS if ou are not careful with C: drive letter.

Hi wd200 hd with serious clicks


You can't change the internal parts, you'll lose all your files on the disk if you do so. This is called the 'click of death' and it means that your disk has physical problems with it (and it's not repairable, you'll have to get a new hard disk drive to replace it.) There are many short-term remedies that will allow you to try and get some if not all your files off it before it fails for good; take a look at Google for some advice.

If the information is very, very important then it's a good idea to call up a data recovery service; it's effective but can cost a significant amount of money.

1tb simpledrive will beep, click, but not work. No joy.


power source jack/plug might be the problem if it has been bumped about or if it was powered up and running before plugging in to the comp.....
i had the problem of my 1tb ext/hdd no longer being recognized because when i plugged it into my comp, the jack was live and not switched of at the wall. the only way i got it to work was to pull it out of the casing and switched it with the 320 ext/hdd i have as they are they same brand..just diff sizes. going to put the 320 into comp to become master drive as the internal is a measly 40g. i think i had burned out the connector pins on the power jack when it was plugged in live. i hope this is an idea for you to try.

it might be because of virus,that stop you to enter your hard disk when you click on it..install anti virus like avg 7.5,mcafee ,norton to check for the virus .

also goto start >open Run>cmd to open command prompt and type
chkdsk
to check your driver for errors.

How can i installed driver of sata hdd for linux red hat


if you are installing red hat 8 and higher there is no need to install extra driver because linux is the only operating system which will install everything including drivers, office suite,programming tools etc .... as far as my suggestion dnt install old versions of linux instead install new version ... there are many linux available
ex: fedora core 4,5,6 ,knoppix live cd linux ( which boots linux from cd no need install it) ,ubuntu,red hat,mandrake,suse ....
you can download it from net 4 free as linux is open source 4 all ...
be careful while installing linux especially during partitioning..... if u make a mistake you will lose all datas
