Wont recognise HD, have to disconnect DVD drive and floppy drive to force it.


While it can be a faulty hard drive, please make sure you have checked the following:

  1. Update BIOS.
  2. Check if Master/Slave jumpers are set. If you have DVD and HDD (hard disk drive) on the same cable, set HDD to Master and DVD to slave.
  3. Check that the Floppy cable is correctly connected. If connected wrong, the light remains on.
  4. One or both DVD and Floppy are faulty.
When the PC starts, BIOS checks the integrity of components in a sequence, if one component is damaged it will stop and give an error. Like say the HDD comes after floppy and DVD. if the DVD is faulty, then it will hang at DVD and not proceed to HDD.

What is max size HDD for a Dimension 8400


As far as I know, there is no known maximum size. If you are making it a slave drive, you need to go into your system's BIOS and tell the computer you have a new HDD.

Restart your PC, and you will either need to hit your F2 key or Delete key repeatedly on boot. Just watch the top right corner of your monitor to know which button to hit.

Once you're in BIOS, just move to the hardware section or hard drive section and make the necessary changes.

Reboot and enjoy!

Hoe to install a diferent windows on a DELL


If HDD makes shshshsh.... or spinning sound or generates heat, your HDD might be ok. Next Try with XP sp2 cd. If it again cant detect HDD, go to BIOS setting and watch if the HDD is showing it's status. If Bios can not detect HDD check HDD cable and power cable inserted in HDD. Replace them if needed. Format the HDD with another PC. If you still have problem replace HDD with new one. One thing you might use your corrupted HDD as a slave drive later, i hope.

Keep informing.

Can't get BIOS settings right


First check to see if your drive (the 160Gig) is set to master or slave. If you are going to use this drive as your primary drive (boot disk) it must be set as master, and it would be drive 0. If, on the other hand, this is a second drive, it should be set as "slave, and should be drive 1. If there is an auto-detect HDD in your Bios, try that. If not, and this machine still won't detect your HDD, you may need to download and install a Bios update, because if your Motherboard is too old, it may not recognize a 160 Gig HDD.

I have an E-Machine W3107 desk top. I recently installed a western digital 120 hard drive as a slave but it would not jump. Can you give me any help in getting my system to jump. Thank you.


Jump? Ha! Never heard that term. How about boot?
Nowadays people just load drives as Cable Select; it should have worked with the old drive set to Master, but try to set them both to that and try again, or boot to a LiveCD or the drive utility disk so you can configure them on that. If they don't appear correctly in the BIOS, just double-check that power and data cables go to each drive, etc. You may need to follow the BIOS instructions or enter the BIOS controls by hitting DEL or F10 on powering up until the menu appears; then you can select the drive to try to boot first, etc. and save your settings.

I installed an additional hard drive in my laptop. The computer will no longer boot up. I've read the the BIOS needs to be changed by I don't know how.


Please tell me which Motherboard your system has???
If you have added an additional drive, check whether you have set the jumpers right for master/slave/cable select configuration.

If you bios setup to boot up from first HDD, then the bootable HDD shall be in master mode. Configure bootable HDD as master & additional one as slave.

If still no luck, Put this additional HDD on other IDE slot.
Tell me if this works...
