Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition for PC

1 Answer

Samsung HDD not seen by Vista I recently purchased a Samsung HD154UI Hard Drive for my Vista 64BIT System. I have enabled the hard drive in the Bios. I now have a 500GB drive on SATA 1 and the new 1500TB drive on Sata 1. My DVD sits on SATA 2. SATA 3 is empty. I can see the hard drive in Computer Management, but I cannot select it to format the drive. All suggestions welcome. Thanks

This won't be the best solution for you perhaps because I'm not a windows guy, but download the gparted (just google for gparted) cd image, burn it to disk and boot it up. Use that to partition and format the drive.

My Samsung 1.5 TB external hard drive spins up and makes about 5 clicking sounds. My laptop cannot detect it. What can I do to recover the data.


A clicking sound for samsung drive is most like due to faulty heads and the only way to recover data off it is to perform a head swap. You need to buy a compatible donor online like ebay. If you don't know how to do this, i suggest you send it to data recovery company, as this is a very dangerous procedure. It can cause severe damage on your hard drive if you perform it without any knowledge and the right tools to do it.

hope it helps.

Hi! I have a laptop samsung r70, in which I have recently re-installed Windows Vista. Suddenly the computer started making a weird noise just before the system collapsed. Now Im trying to re.install...


I would suggest that it is most definitely a hard ware failure most likely your hard disk drive failed do to the fact that it only makes the sound when you try to access it. All you need to do is go purchase another HDD install it and then just reinstall windows. HDD's are fairly cheep now a days and you can pick one up for 20 or 30 dollars. also attached i place a link to directions on how to change out your HDD.

Check the jumper settings on the back of the drive, if this is the primary HD, set it to master, if secondary, set it to slave, if secondary still does not recognize, switch the ide cable so that the two drives are not on the same one.
