Hi I've Vaio VPCSC1AFM with Win 7, boot is impossible -"Operating System Not Found", HDD is also not visible in BIOS. I can hear that HDD is working.


* Look in your BIOS, I've it can detect the HDD.
( Press the F1 or F10 key after restarting the computer) * Make sure all the cables are connectedproperly.

* It might be a jumper setting.


I've you have 2 HDD's on 1 cable, you need to have 1 Master & 1 Slave,or else your HDD(s) wont show up & other problems.


Jumper settings below (Yourjumper settings might be different !)

I've this all didnt work, either your HDD or your MOBO is broken.

Computer powers on and runs but it will not post hhd in BIOS. any help?


Shut down you're system. Open you're case and double check the power cable and data cable from hdd to motherboard. (Disconnect both cables and re-connect both). Make sure the cables are fully inserted. Power up the system and enter the bios. The hdd drive should be listed. If not replace the data cable with a new one and check the bios again.
If you have two hdd, ATA IDE drives connected, make sure that each hdd is jumpered correctly. One set to Master with a slave.
The second drive should be jumpered as a slave.
If you're running 1 hdd make sure the hdd is jumper as a Master without a slave. There is a sticker on the hdd to help you set the jumper correctly.
If the bios still does not see you're hdd than either the hdd is bad or the motherboard controller is bad.
To check if the hdd is faulty, check the sticker on the drive. Find the manufacture's name and model. Google the manufacture's name. Every manufacture provides free software that will test and repair the drive by allowing you to create either a bootable floppy disk or bootable CD disk that runs in a DOS like window. Example: For a Seagate drive you would download SeaTools for DOS. Instructions are listed on the site; http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
Seagate also supports Maxtor drives using the same software.

Good luck!
Cheers'

Msi k8mm-v board not detecting SATA 320 GB HDD


peets, is this drive a slave drive? if so, make sure you have the jumper ******** the hdd set for "slave" , the instructions that came with it and on top of the hdd itself shows you where that is. You should have it set up for this anyways so you can format it to your liking(i.e. if your going to partition it out or use the whole 320GB for your data). after doing this you will need to go to you bios screen when you boot up your computer(setup). Go to standard or advanced bios settings and see if the new hdd is there, your bios should recognize it, if not, make sure you write down all the info for your hdd (size, cylinders, heads, type) and input the info for a correct installation and when you are finished, make sure you save the info (F10) and (Y) computer will restart and it should see the new hdd. Also, I take it you have CD/DVD driveconnected to your primary SATA or IDE port, this should not be a problem, if so send a msg back.

My second hard drive (slave) sometimes works and


try to find out if all cables are properly attached, that in bios both IDE channels are set active and ide(hard/drive detection) is set to auto.
Exit saving changes. reboot and wait if in boot-up screen hdd is shown. Now you have made sure the hdd is being recognized from the hardware side.

Boot up windows and check if it is listed in the explorer.
IF yes, youre lucky.
if not, run hardware detecton and wait for results.
IS it now?
if yes goto properties, tools and check disk thoroughly.
back-up data, format it(long version!). check again.
(Now any invalid or broken clusters are marked)
Hope this solved the issue!

ASUS P4S533 mother board not supporting full 160 gb


This is happing becuase of your motherboards BIOS !
Really, this happened to me too. You see, our motherboards which are very old cant support above 80 and so on. This is beacuse of the BIOS. You will need to update your BIOS inorder to give new features.

Try go to the Asus home page and download the latest driver for your motherboard. Then install it in your motherboard's BIOS. There is intructions for this in the Asus's home page.
