Mi pc no reconoce el disco duro al formatear


Control Panel, Computer Management, Disk Management. Check that your Hitachi disk is present. If it is present, does it have a drive letter assigned? If not Right Click and Assign Drive Letter.

If drive not present you should check power and data connections.

I have a imminent failure and when I press F1 then I start installing Windows the system doesn't detect my HDD. I have a bad sectors and I know it. But I can't solve it. Can you tell me more information...


The motherboard is quering the 'S.M.A.R.T.' status of the disk-drive,
and the disk-drive is reporting that it is about to "fail".
So, your motherboard is showing that "Imminent failure -- press F1 to ignore this alert" message.

Take your computer to a qualified technician, to see if it is "too late" to recover any files from your disk-drive, and/or to install a new disk-drive, and to install Windows.

Hi,

there are many reasons why, the computer would,nt find or see the Drive.
1:) the laptop drive, may need formatting.
2:) the drive, is not cabled correctly.
3:) the drive is faulty.

go into the bios setup, usually F2 Or esc Or Delete at setup. options sometimes appear briefly on screen. ** to enter setup press F2 Or similar**
find boot sequence or bootup order. and set the CD/DVD to become the first boot device.

Put your setup-install disk, in the dvd drive.
When rebooting the system, the computer will start a setup from CD/DVD. this will tell you that the drive is not found, or needs to be formatted. follow the on-screen options.

Finally, certain laptops only recognise, a drive of a certain size. install the original to see if this still works. Also check there are no limitation jumpers on the old-drive. ( small plastic bridging pins )

Mike @ compurepair.
