You must have re-installed Windows when you replaced the hard drive. After installing Windows, you need to re-install the drivers too. You may have a driver disc that came with your computer. If you don't have it, you can search for the drivers on Google, if you know the make and model of your computer. After downloading the drivers, install them. You didn't realize but you probably also need to install the video/graphics driver.
However, here's an easy way out:
Use this driver scanning tool, which scans your computer for the needed drivers. It has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free tool from here, or directly from this link.

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

Two of my Fantom external hard drives do not work. The lights come on, but one makes a clicking sound and the other one no sound. I've checked the power pack and that is not the problem. I don'


Are the drives still under warranty or not? All drives will fail.

If they aren't, break open the case and put the drives into new enclosures or place them in a desktop (if you have extra IDE or SATA connectors available) as secondary drives. You may need adapters if these are portable drives. This will let you see if the enclosure has failed or the drive itself. The one that is clicking may not be usable (clicking usually means a head problem). However, you should be able to recover files. You may need to use a file recovery program, like Recuva, if the drive has lost the partition information.

I hope this helps. If the drives are under warranty, decide if you want to void your warranty. The data will not be recovered under warranty with most external drives.

(I've replaced several hard drives when they went bad. By cloning the drive before it fails, I haven't lost data. I've also attempted to rescue data after the failure. I try to back up important data to optical discs as well as flash drives and backup HDDs.)

Disk boot failure. black screen. and hard drive makes a clicking sound.


99% sure that clicking sound, combined with the boot disk failure message, means your hard drive is dead. You can replace the drive with a new one, and reinstall windows, etc. but more than likely the data will be lost unless you use a data recovery service. Feel free to contact me or put another request in if you want specific info on reinstalling windows.
Sorry for the bad luck.

By removing/replacing the hard drive, will the stored data be lost?


the data is stored onto the hard drive, so if you remove the hard drive from the external drive box, you've removed the data from the box, but taking the hard drive out of the box doesn't destroy the data. They're still safe and sound on the hard drive.

PC picks it up and works as suppose to, till this day... So guys and gals, before going out to replace your external drive, borrow a playstation usb cable from your neighbor and have a go...

Windows XP SP2, Intel DG965WH mobo. Two SATA hard drives, two EIDE hard drives (WD200EB). Suddenly one day, without warning, the two EIDE drives just disappeared from the Hard Disk Drive list and files...


the problem sounds like you either lost the IDE channels on the MOBO or the chipset was updated with corrupt files.

run everest home and see if there are current updates for the northbridge chipset. if you have 2 ide channels on the board switch the primary and secondary ribbons and see if the hard drives are there. if your cdrom's are ide and after switching ribbon cables they disappear and the hard drives reappear your mobo lost an ide channel, you would need to replace the board.

Hard drive


What exactly do you mean you lost your hard drive? You lost your data? Your hard drive is completely broken? What is the result? You cannot boot up? I'm assuming you have WinXP Home? Please be more specific is what's happening to your computer, your description is vague.

It sound like your hard drive has lost something or is ready to die. I strongly recommend that you immediately make a back up of all you important files, then even better an image of your hard drive. To do an image you can use something like Drive Image or Ghost; in this way in case you need to replace your hard drive it will not take 2 days to reinstall Windows and all the programs.

To better understand if your Hard drive isd daying, you can look at LED in the front of your PC to see if stays only for a long time. I also suggest you to use a nice and free utility Drive Fitness. You can download it from here http://www.softsea.com/review/IBM-Hitachi-Drive-Fitness-Test.html when you install it it will create a Floppy disk.

After creating your Floppy you start your PC from Floppy and it will test all the parameters of your Hard Disk.

If Drive Fitness doesn't find any issue means that there is a problem with Windows (Some file corrupted or lost)
