Try going into the Bios or System Setup and see if there are some settings for System Security or Asset ID Antenna. It sounds like something is set in the Bios. Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. Hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and try again.

I just bought a Dell Back-up plus 1 TB hard disk . when i plug in the USB cable it does not show up on My computer but it shows on "Device manager" and "computer management" .. so i cannot use it as a...


The only thing that I can think of is that you need to go into computer management and click on the "disk management" sub-heading under storage. From there all of the hard drives in the computer should show up. Find the new hard drive in the list and right click on the part where is say Disk 1 or Disk 2 or which ever disk is the correct one (it should be around 930gb or so). Then select initialize disk, and follow the wizard through the choices to setup the disk as a basic hard drive. After the disk is initialized you need to format it and then you should be access the drive in my computer.

My IBM Thinkpad R40 laptop stopped working.The IBM Think Pad screen comes up and then with a beep,the system shuts down.Went to a support shop and found some IC on the system board was damaged.Now,for data...


Unless the hard disk itself is damaged, data should be perfectly recoverable. This does not mean that any USB device will be able to read the unit. Some external attachments I found were not capable of reading large disks, or required those disks to be formatted while in the attachment, meaning that the disk addressing mode wasn't autodetected at all.

On the other hand, the disk MIGHT be damaged. Sorry to mention it but it's a possibility. Were those damaged IC on the board connected to the disk I/O system? (Or, maybe, the ICs only seemed to be damaged, but were actually working - it was the HD which was damaged all the time, and the system rebooted as soon as it tried to access the disk).

I'd suggest having the disk connected with a 2.5"-to-3.5" adapter to a Linux machine as secondary hard disk. This will allow direct talk to the disk unit, bypassing external devices and the like, and allowing direct access to the partition, with a much more informative error logging than Windows systems are generally equipped with.

Getting problem in formatting the IBM PC


check if the cable from the cd rom connected to your ibm pc if its ok , also check the master, slave configuration pins into the back of your cdrom. make sure that theres no conflict between the hard disk and the cdrom. Your cd rom may probably cannot be detected. make sure that it is working first. then install the hard disk. The hard disk must be in primary master and the cd rom must be in primary slave. then try booting it to your cd rom. also, try checking if your windows xp setup disk is bootable, it means that it can boot from cd rom. PM me if you have other experiences after doing what i adviced. Thank You.. heres my email. jmizpahadonai777@gmail.com

My laptop does not recognize the hard disk after formatting;


Actually, have you tried running the Windows install yet? When you're in Windows Setup, it should recognize the hard drive as a device, even if it's not formatted or formatted properly.

Try going into the BIOS for the laptop (it might be called Setup Menu or some such - you should see a prompt for hitting a key like Del to get there) and look and see if the BIOS recognizes the hard drive. If the BIOS doesn't see the hard drive, then the problem might be with the laptop and not the hard drive.

Error to Detect, hardisk must be formatted


The problem might not be with the HHD instead it could be your bios setup. you will have to download drivers for the bios of you laptop and install them in your operating system then try to access the hard-disk.

IBM Netvista 6059 - Can't upgrade to windows XP


Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
