Hello,

If your system is showing 'No Hard Drive Detected Problem', a lot of things might be wrong, but I will give you a few steps you can try out to troubleshoot it.

First, try to make sure the drive is firmly connected to the interface where it is meant to be seated,

Then in the BIOS, make sure that it is detected and is selected as one of the drives in the boot sequence, preferrably as the first boot device.

If this does not work, select it as a second drive and get a software called NTFS DOS Professional.

It is a software that works like magic when it comes to hard drive repairs.

If you know any other hard drive utility, apart from this, you can also use it. I just recommend this personally because that is what I use.

Insert it into your PC, start up your CD-ROM and let your system boot from CD-ROM.

It works through DOS, and it should be able to help you with it.

If it is not even detected in the BIOS at all, then I'm afraid, you might need to change your hard drive completely.

Hope this helps you out.

Good luck

When i try to formate the toshiba satellite L500-226 there hard disk cannot be found


Please check the hardrive under BIOS setup if it is detected. But if not, you have a defective hardrive and you need to replace it before installing the operating system.

My LG hardrive-2.5" HXD2 250GB-


Oh man, i hate to be the bearer of bad news but...
If you drop a hard drive, especially if it's out of the case, it will jar the sensitive disk inside and ruin it... I don't believe there is anything you can do for it. I'm sorry!

My computer says: DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER. How do I fix this problem. There is a screen before this, but then it turns straight to that screen and will not allow me to do...


1. Check the hardrive cable connection (data and DC supply).
2. Under the BIOS setting, make sure that the hardrive is detected (set to enhance mode), this will detects either SATA or PATA., Exit and Save new setting
3. If still no detect, your hardrive might defect n need new one

I would like diagram on hooking hard drive to hard drive.


If you are trying to put another hardrive into your existing pc I could explain but you if would like something more visual then there is a tutorial here

its simple really since the computer auto detects the new hardrive. the hardest part are the jumpers on the back of the hardrive. You see one hardrive has to be set to Master and the other has to be set to slave. the hardrives can connect to the IDE cable (the big flat cable inside your pc) in any order but they cannot be both set to master. The jumpers are easy to switch and the hardrive itself will have a diagram right next to the jumpers to show you how to move the jumpers to make the selection.

its a great idea to have two drives in your pc in case something happens to the first, but i always recommend a hard backup (cd/dvd).
