Hello, You need to right click on to my computer>Manage>choose disk management, you should format the new SATA HDD there.

If that will work for you that is good but if not, i thing you should updated the BIOS and you have to make sure that you get that update to MSI website. if you are not familiar w/ that asked some one who know how to flash BIOS. it is risky if you are not familiar doing BIOS update!!!

Lenovo SL 500 not booting after startup only black screen with cursor is seen


Dude,

Most of the time, the machine booting with the blinking cursor indicates a problem with the HDD itself.

You can do the following:

1) Reseat the HDD
2) Check BIOS boot order and see if the HDD is still recognized at BIOS level
3) Load the BIOS defaults (F1 at boot, then F9, F10)
4) If the HDD is detected at BIOS, try to access Rescue and Recovery on the HDD (F11 key at boot) and try to reload Windows.
5) If problems persist, I'd highly recommend replacing the HDD!!

You might need to change your bios settings from ide to sata. Have you already checked the bios settings? If everything is in order you might have a bad board. What have you tried so far?

When i plug my new hard drive into the laptop nothing happens..what can i do?


What type of HDD? Sata or IDE? If it's an IDE, make sure you set the jumper in the correct command, (Cable Select, Slave or Master), if it's a SATA, then after starting the laptop, get in the Bios and make sure that the Bios recognize the HDD, if it does not recognize it, then the HDD could be damage. We are talking about an HDD without any OS in it, no?

HDD both IDE or SATA 1 are not recognized


Unplugg the disk from motherboard and reboot your computer
Shut off the computer, connect the drive again and start up again.

If the problem continue, set the drive on your bios manually.

If after that the problem continue replace the disk.
