Motherboard Problem


Good day,
'

There are several component we need to consider in order for us to give you a more appropriate solution to your dilemma.

1. There are pin configuration at the back of your hard drive which can be switched from one combination to another. These pins is for boot sequencing. Try switching your hard drive pin configuration from master or slave to auto detect or IDE detect.
2. IDE cable must be inserted correctly. IDE cables have red lining on one side which indicates the proper insertion. Red Lining must be facing the red wire from the power supply cord. Try looking a closer look.

However, we need to ask you a few questions to give you a more direct answer.
Kindly provide the following.
1. Is you hard drive an IDE type it SATA.
2. Motherboard specs.
3. Memory allotted.

There maybe a wiring connection problem with your harddisk drive to your motherboard. Check the power cord connection and also the connection to the motherboard. Try reconnecting the cords.

Hi my acer laptop is giving me a display saying it cannot find the operating system


Either your master boot record got hosed or the entire hard drive has failed. When booting the machine, enter the system BIOS and check to see that your hard drive is recognized. If it is not, you will need to replace it. If it is recognized, you will need to boot from your OS installation CD and try to repair your existing installation. It should automatically be able to detect the problem and fix it without any other kind of manual intervention. If that is not the case, post back here to this thread and I'll offer other suggestions.

Installing Hitachi P7K500 Sata Hard Drive


Windows XP does not come out to support SATA hard drive, because inside do not inclued the SATA driver, that why u cannot see the harddisk during the setup. What u can do is try to install the SATA supported OS like Windows Vista or Windows 7, or maybe can "forcely" put in the SATA driver in ur Windows XP setup CD.

There are many ways to format your hard drive but i will tell the two ways.
  1. while you installing the os like windows xp,2000 it ask you to format the hard disk to install the windows operating system. It comes before the copying the files into the hard disk while you install the windows.
  2. Another way is formatting the harddisk is by seagate software like DM (Disk Manger) is comes with the harddrive or you can download the software from the seagate website for free. DM is the software for formatting . so you can format your harddrive by these software.
