It may be a problem of hard drives jumper settings and the CMOS/BIOS setting conflicts!!
first try to go to setup on pressing F2 and load optimal values and restart!!
if this does not help then open the CPU and see the hard drives jumper settings and make it to chip select(CS), and restart!
this mainly will be the problems!

reply and rate!!!

If this has happened all of a sudden and you havent installed any new hardware... then most likely your hard drive has packed in (died)... so you will need a replacement hard drive, then install operating system and also drivers!...yes its a kinda long job

360 harddrive


Is this a new hard drive that you are fitting to a desktop PC?
If it is a new - empty- hard drive it will have to be formatted before you can install Windows.
If it is a hard drive that you are fitting as a slave you may be fitting it on the wrong part of the IDE data cable, or if SATA, on the wrong motherboard connector. IDE data cables have many pins and are grey and wide.
On an IDE cable you may have 3 connectors. One which fits the motherboard, and 2 connectors to fit drives. The connector FURTHEST away from the motherboard is the MASTER. The middle connector is for the slave.
On the rear of a hard drive you also have 'jumper connectors'. The location of these connectors sets the drive as either master or slave. On an IDE data cable the master drive must be at the cable end with the jumper connector set to master (or 'cable select'). The slave drive - on the middle connector - must have its jumper connector set to 'slave' (or 'cable select').
If you are using SATA, the hard drive should be set to master or slave.
However, it would appear your computer IS recognising the drive. To check, restart your computer and press the delete key as it boots up (or it may be another key ..it tells you on the start up screen which key to press to access the bios settings).
Access the bios settings and look for the disk information. It will tell you if the disk is detected and whether it is a primary master or primary slave. You can always try disconnecting your dvd drive (power off the computer first..) and fitting the hard drive in its place. Restart the computer and go into the bios settings again. Is the drive now recognised as the secondary master? It well may be just incorrect location on the cable/jumper settings/where the cable is connected to the motherboard.
If it is just a single hard drive you have and it is new, Your computer will tell you that it needs formatting before you can install an operating system or software.
If it's a second hand drive you are fitting, your computer will not boot up even if the hard drive already has Windows on it. You will have to reinstall Windows from a dvd.
If it's your existing hard drive which had been previously working ok, remove the data cable and reconnect it. It may be a 'dry joint' causing the problem. If disconnecting and reconnecting the cable on an existing hard drive does not work .. begin to suspect a failing hard drive

Put in another HD made it a slave but i dont see it as a slave in system files


The master/slave drive model applies to IDE drives (older) these use a 40 or 80 pin ribbon cable. The newer SATA drives (L shaped connectors) don't rely on master/slave config. If you are using IDE you will need to specifically configure the jumper on the main drive as master and the other as slave, alternately you can set them both to cable select. The slave drive will show up under disk management as Disk 1. If you add a second disk this will give you more storage space, in this case 50GB (think of this a long term storage or data that is saved after the computer is shut down) Ram on the other hand is where the computer stores data and applications for faster access, not all of a program has to be loaded in to ram, parts of it can be swapped out from your hard drive as needed. Having more ram means the computer doesn't need to waste time swapping out parts of a program, it can load it all into ram at once.

After six months sitting unused I turn it on and at first its ok, then it goes black then tells me a windows 32 file is missing and to reboot using master cd...I don't believe it came with one. Its six...


This usually indicates a problem with a driver. When you say it is ok at first does it actually load in to Windows and then randomly blue screen to this error? If this is the case then there should be an "error code" that looks something like "000000000x##) where the ## is there should be a letter and a number(i.e. 1e) depending on what that number is will help determine which driver is the issue. Once we've determined the driver in question it should be a matter of reinstalling the driver in question and see if this resolves this issue.
Though the computer is a little long in the tooth and if the hardware is failing it may be more cost effective to recycle your computer and purchase a new one.

Im having serious probs here


first, ensure that only one master hard drive is connected (also disconnect cdrom(s). Next, at startup press the key (DEL or F2) to BIOS screen. then make sure that only the master hard drive in position 1 is listed or choose AUTO detect. now reboot and report if any progress. If no further progress, then master hard drive has failed somehow, but to be certain, try that drive on another pc as a slave just to test spin-up.
