It shouldn't detect an hard-drive if its not there
If driver is still appearing click property's for that driver and click Uninstall Drivers. And it will fully remove them..
Where does it display you still have the hard-drive installed If you have replaced the hard-drive it shouldn't detect something that is not there, Although drivers may still appear on Old hard-drive files but when you install new hard-drive it will not have the Same drivers as it's new files, Although If hard-drive is same make it will install the drivers needed.
If you notice drivers that are for things you don't have you can un-install them but it may be best to leave them they will cause no problem so long as your laptop is functioning properly then there is nothing to worry about or change.

My iomega external hard drive (250GB) is not being detected by my laptop. I tried another laptop and another wire to connect it with the laptop but it didn't work. The light is on and I can hear voice when...


Most hard drives have two parts that you can replace one is the circuit board that controls the read/write head sometimes if you replace this with the exact board with the correct firmware (a few star drive screws) then it might bring the HDD to life.

The sad news is that if the mechanical part of the HDD has failed then it cost you £100's of pounds to recover the data from specialist companies.

Do not despair buy a new one of at least 250GB and you could try the old fridge trick with a zip lock bag overnight I have use this once to get the drive to work for a short time at least then using Windows Commander set it to copy all the folders to the new drive I have recovered about 70% of data from a failed drive this way.

Gets stuck on the "asus" screen when i trun my laptop on.


Could be that the hard drive is not making a good connection. Turn the laptop upside down. Find the "latch" where the hard drive is "housed" and remove the drive... Then carefully and firmly replace it and make sure it makes good contact. Then try again to boot the laptop. If it still does not start up TAKE IT BACK to where you bought it from and let them sort it out 'cause it is supposed to be under warranty for at least 1 year

How much big HDD can i connect to my ASUS-CUBX-L motherboard?


The size of the drive that will be detected can vary on a number of things: bios version, and OS.

They will both "physically" work, but the full capacity may not be "seen".

The 160 should work fine, but the 320 may only "show" as a 250 or 300.

My best advice is to flash the bios to the latest, and start with the 160. Install your OS, and connect the 320 as a slave after the OS install, and check its properties.
