Try these things,

Keep the main, original hard drive pin selected to "master", make sure the original hard drive is connected to the motherboard at the default connection.

IDE's it should be the last connector on the cord and not shared with the cd/dvd rom cord.

Sata's it should be the number "one" connector on the motherboard. The board is typically labeled and with numbers.

The new hard drives you should try putting them into "cable select" since you said setting them to "slave" doesnt work. It's a good idea to just go into bios to make sure those connectors are enabled. Some desktop bios are set to off or disabled.

Do you have a CD/DVD player? Sometimes I have seen they can interfere with adding hard drives. Why not remove it for the time being just to see if it works.

Slow start with home edition of xp


The HP Pavilion a350n Desktop PC, came out in late 2003.

This suggests to me, that you may have had the computer a long time.

You need to clean the harddrive of,
A) Unnecessary files,
B) Fragmented files,
C) Unused programs, and applications,
D) Plus frequently defragment the harddrive.

A, and B.
The best method is to use a Registry Cleaner. I recommend a Free one.

Why?
A) It is Free.
B) It works as well, or better than the paid fore versions.

CCleaner.

This is Wikipedia, and the article on Ccleaner,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ccleaner

The home page for Ccleaner is on the upper right, underneath the illustration.

Should you wish to download, install, and use this free program, come back with a comment, and I'll walk you through using it.
After you know how you'll find out it's really easy.

Every time you go to a website, you pick up cookies. These are harmless, but after a given time they take up space on your harddrive.

Whenever your harddrive is more than 50 percent full, your computer starts to slow down. You really start noticing it, when your harddrive is more than 70 percent full.

30 percent Free Space.

With Windows running, Left-click on Start, then Left-click on My Computer.
Look at Local Disk (C:)

This is your harddrive.
What percentage of Free Space do you have?

Don't see this? It could be the type of View you are using.
Go to the top header. Look for the icon that looks like a rectangle with 6 colored squares in it, and has a black triangle pointing down.
(To the right of the yellow Folders icon)

Click on the Black triangle. It's a Down Arrow. There will be a drop down list. Left-click on - Details

Now what percentage of Free Space do you have?

Whenever you have a program, or application that you have deleted, there will be file fragments left behind. These take up space on the harddrive.

When your harddrive has about 5 to 10 percent left of Free Space, your computer will crawl like a Snail.
You can't defragment your harddrive if you do not have enough Free Space left on your harddrive.

Go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.

After the Add/Remove Programs list has populated, look for programs, or applications you may have installed, and rarely, If ever use anymore.

Get rid of the one's you don't need.
DO NOT Remove any Windows programs!

Unused programs/applications take up harddrive free space.

After you have removed all programs/applications that are unused, run Ccleaner.
Clean the Windows registry.

D) After you have enough Fee Space on the harddrive, you can run defragment.

(Start>Control Panel>Performance and Maintenance>Rearrange Items on Your Computer to Make Programs Run Faster.

If you do not see Performance and Maintenance, you are in the Classic view.
If you go up to the top left corner, you will see the Control Panel heading, and underneath it -
'Switch to Category View'

Left-click on it. If you desire the Classic View again, you can always switch back)

You may get a comment about using your restoration CD disk, to restore your computer.

1) IF, you still have the Restoration CD disk, you have my respect! Very few of us still have this disk after 3 years, much less almost 7.

2) BE AWARE, that you will restore the computer back to the way it was, when it came from the factory.

Back to Day 1.

FROM THE FACTORY

This means any Programs, or Applications you have installed, or downloaded, will be GONE!

This means any personal documents you have will be GONE!

My Photos, My Videos, My Music, and any saved documents, or documents you have made. (My Documents folder)

GONE!

Just wanted you to be aware of that.

Back up your personal documents to CD, or DVD disks. (DVD-R, or RW for videos)

You need the program, or application CD disks, to put them back on the computer.
You cannot copy them to a disk.

I await your questions.

I want to install a seond hard drive in computer


can you please open up the CPU and check one thing? Is there any Free port in this cable? One end will be connected to the motherboard and two others to (1)CD/DVD rom and (2) Hard drive.

If there is free, surely you can add one. Please then look for a place where you can place your (ATA not the sata one) harddrive.

There is a way of testing harddrives and RAM using the manufacturers diagnostic tools, you would have to go to the harddrive manufacturers website and download the utility then burn it to a CD.
You can also download a whole bunch of diagnostic tools and burn it to a CD using whats known as "The Ultimate Boot CD". There is plenty of help and instructions on the UBCD web site:
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/
You will need a computer that has a CD burner installed and the ability to make a bootable CD, you will also have to change the setup of your friends computer so that it boots from the CD first and not the harddrive, by carrying out the diagnostic tests hopefully you can identify the faulty part easier and avoid buying something you don't need.

Hiya,my xp home pc has suddenly started to freeze on various open windows/programs just when it wants to.Sometimes I can get this to come back by right clicking and refreshing other times I have to use...


The first thing I would, as it is quick and easy, is test a few bits of your hardware, you could have a memory chip going bad or a bad sector on the harddrive causing seek time problems.
Download and burn to a CD the UBCD (ultimate boot CD), this utility has a bunch of tools on it to test your hardware.
Harddrive tests are very quick, memory tests can take a while, if you see anything you are unsure of don't hesitate to ask me.

Also - if it is telling you to install a hard drive - then your bios is not reconizing that you have a hard drive installed. Go into your Bios to see if your hard is listed. if not - you need to open your computer to make sure all the connections are correct. if this doesn't work, you may have to buy a new hard drive.

How do I burn a CD with my pictures, then show them on my computer? Can and how do I delete the pictures on the computer?


Your question was not quite clear "then show them on my computer"


1.) You can use a third program software like nero.
To use nero, you have to "purchase" it first, then install nero, then open "Nero burning ROM" application usually either under
"program files\Ahead\Nero\Nero Burning Rom\nero.exe"
or
Program Files\Nero\...\Nero Burning Rom\Nero.exe

Select the option CD-ROM Iso, then select multi session(if you want to add pictures later) or no multisession (if you dont want to add pictures later)::: For example, your CD takes abour 700MB of data, but you only have 10 pictures @ 30MB or so then you most likely to use multisession.::: Then click on the "new" button to start compiling your cd.

Then you can add your files into your compilation. You can give your CD a name by either double clicking on the little disk icon to your right in the first nero and changing the name OR by selecting "File" from the menu, then selecting the "Compilation properties" option, then click on the "Label" tab, and change your cd's name there.

All you have to do now, after you have given your cd a name and added files to the compilation is to find and click on the "burn" icon located in the nero bar below the "file, edit, new menus".


2.)If you have installed nero, you can also use Nero smart start 2 complile your CD. Benefis: Much quicker and easier to use.
