P4pe x cannot detect hhd drive


If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive then :-
1. The hard drive data cable or power connector may not be inserted properly.
2. The motherboard disk controller is faulty.
3 The hard disk is faulty.

To test the motherboard disk controller, connect another hard disk to the motherboard and go into the BIOS to see if it detects the hard drive.
If it detects the hard drive, then the other hard drive is faulty and need to be replaced.
Another way to test the "faulty" hard drive, connect the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files the the hard disk is OK, and the fault is a faulty disk controller on the motherboard.

Hard disk ST9120822AS ATA Device


If the computer cannot Bootup with an error message that hard drive nor detected or no boot device then you could have a faulty hard disk.
Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard disk. If it is not detected then it is probably faulty.
Next reset the ATA data cable on the hard drive and at the motherboard. Bootup the computer again, also check the BIOS configuration again to see if it detects the hard drive.
If it still does not find the hard drive then remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer does not detect it as an external hard drive then this proves the hard drive is faulty.
To get your computer working again, replace the hard drive and install Windows together with the device drivers and your programs.

My computer worked properly. but at once my IDE devices started giving troubles. my 2 IDE devices are not detected at the start up.


The BIOS will have trouble detecting faulty IDE devices, eg the hard disk etc.
To check if the IDE devices are faulty, connect the hard disk to an USB hard disk adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port, if the computer detects it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files then the hard drive is OK and the fault is the disk controller. If the hard disk is not detected then it is faulty and a new hard disk is needed, Windows installed on the new hard drive together with the device drivers and your programs to get an fully functioning computer again.

Acer aspire one hard disk cannot read


Check the BIOS configuration for the hard disk, if the BIOS does not detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty or the disk controller is faulty.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. This computer should detect the hard drive as an external disk drive. If this computer cannot detect it and/or cannot open the folders etc. the the hard drive is faulty.
Then you need to install a new hard drive in the Acer and install Windows, the device drivers and your programs to get the laptop operational again.
