P4pe x cannot detect hhd drive


If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive then :-
1. The hard drive data cable or power connector may not be inserted properly.
2. The motherboard disk controller is faulty.
3 The hard disk is faulty.

To test the motherboard disk controller, connect another hard disk to the motherboard and go into the BIOS to see if it detects the hard drive.
If it detects the hard drive, then the other hard drive is faulty and need to be replaced.
Another way to test the "faulty" hard drive, connect the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files the the hard disk is OK, and the fault is a faulty disk controller on the motherboard.

Maxtor 3100 200gb hard drive not detected on PC running xp


Here we have two things to check and understand.

1) Is the Bios Detecting this hardware. Or is it that the basic Motherboard itself is not accepting the HDD.

2) The version of OS you are running and if the pug and play is able to detect the Hardware as the second stage of detection.

Do you see any hardware detection notification when you connect the HDD or when you Start running the HDD ?

I would like you to check these which will give you a clear picture of the issue.

Else please write back.. The Hardware on which the HDD is connected. Motherboard Specs, and also the messages or notifcations that you might be getting while trying to connect the Hard Disk. Good Luck.

My system cannot detected any hard drive on


go into the bios during rebooting stage and check whether you have automatic detection of drives. If set to disabled or manual change to automatic. You may have a problem with the motherboard interface to hard-drive.

All drive not detected


Check your power supply that its working or not. If its working then

Please check all the cable inside your system and then try attaching 1 by 1 i.e. attach first hard disk and than start your machine and see that it is detecting or not.

If its detecting then attach cd-rom and start your machine.
If its not detecting then remove hard disk and attach CD-ROM only.

If CD-ROM is also not detected then there is problem with your cable.

My cpu won't boot


Is there a disk in your floppy drive?
Do you use the floppy drive at all? (Most people no longer do)

If you don't, unplug the power, open the case, disconnect the floppy drive.
Plug it back in, power it on, and go into the BIOS setting screen (depending on the computer, there are different things to do, like hit the DEL key, or F12, or F2, or ESC etc)
Once you are in the BIOS screen, disable the floppy drive detection, save it and try booting again.

It sounds like your floppy drive has gone bad. By removing it, and disabling it in the detection, you can get deeper into the problem (if there is one after that)

The motherboard cannot detect the hard drive/ hard disk


You cant install xp on one machine and then move the drive to another. By nature the xp install is tied to the hardware of the machine it is installed on
