150gb sata formated hdd not recongized by lenovo 3000 n200

My new NB has conflict w/xpp driver for duel pcmcia aircard & express card slot. Rather than mess up the existing working hdd, I'm trying to load the reformatted sata hdd below. the new xph version, doesn't format and partition the hdd, and after loading some drivers, pops up a message "there is no hdd found on this computer" press F3 to terminate this install..

close .. mine is Toshiba MK1637GSX 150gb 5400rpm sata hdd I reformated for lenovo 3000 n200, 1gb, dual 1.73ghz

    Not sure what you are saying.
    1. The new formatted hdd only boots to "NTLDR is missing".

    I used an external sata usb cable device for using external hdd with usb 2.o ports.. I connected the hdd to it and plugged it into deskbox also running xph with sata drives. opened win exp, clicked on quick format, dropped a file on it, it added it ok, for verification

    were you after ntfs? that was used.

    The real issue is the driver issue conflict for the express slot adapter for pcmcia cards,. If that can be resolved, then I don't need to setup a new xp hdd.

    I can put the orig hdd back in the nb and try what you want?

    I originally installed the hdd in the nb & tried to format it, nothing worked, everything was greyed out. So I tried to format it with the usb device .. which works great on file xfrs.

    Then I installed the formatted hdd in the nb drive bay & tried to do xp install. it never repartitioned the hdd, it just was indicating it was loading drivers, after a while, it popped up the message, no hdd were found on the nb computer!

    whats next.

    ahh..got it..so...how was this formatted?

  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels May 25, 2008

    ahh..so, you have the HD on a usb? that is the least likely way to have it work..you'll need to mainline that drive to the onboard bus, not through a usb connection.

I am interested in this drive Seagate Momentus XT 500 GB. I want to know how to install this drive into my desk top computer with a 3.0 slot for the drive as it is only 2.5 inches wide.


To install a Hard Disk Drive(HDD) into your desktop, take off the side panel of your case. Locate the SATA slots on it, they should be above the available Optical drive slots.

Put it in place, depending on your case you should either have a latch which locks it in place or you will have screws. After you've done, make sure that if you have another HDD in your PC, and you will not use this HDD for System files(C:\ drive), you will have to set the new one to Slave configuration. To do this you need to take out that jumper inside of the HDD(you can use some tweezers) and, according to what's printed on your HDD, move it up or down.

When you've done that, insert the SATA power supply cables from your Power Supply(PSU). After that use the SATA interface cables which came with your HDD and plug them into your Motherboard's SATA adapters. Locations of these vary depending on the motherboard so it's always best to refer to your Motherboard's manual to check locations.

After that start your PC and open up your BIOS/CMOS. Usually you press a key such as F2/F5/Esc on bootup. Configure your Motherboard to check for new drivers. After that save and exit and it will restart your PC. You should have installed your new HDD!

Sometimes, recent hardwares (laptop components) don't have its drivers for XP1 & 2. (It conflicts.)
Try with XP3. Otherwise, you have to reinstall win7 and run win XP virtually under win7.

Is satelite 4300 wi fi capable? where can i buy battery of sateilte 4300 series?


If your computer has a USB-slot or a PCMCIA-slot, then it is capable of using a USB-to-wireless adapter stick, or a PCMCIA-to-wireless adapter-card.

Look on eBay -- find the model-number on the current battery, and search on eBay, being sure to search both "body" and "title" of eBay listings, to find "compatible" batteries.

I need the drivers a western digital sata 160 g hard drive model wd1600aabb for the xp platform please!!! can anyone help?


There are no such drivers....sata hard drives use windows drivers...if the computer is asking for drivers for a hard drive, then it is seeking drivers within windows...which means there could be corruption in those windows drivers that the WD HDD needs. Try going to windows update, let it load and check for updates and instead of hitting express, hit custom and look in the left hand pane for hardware updates and see if the drivers for a hard drive would be there. WD only offers Firmware updates and software for its HDD's.

Troubling in sata connection


  • I suppose there is a jumper(beside the power pin) on your new HDD,
  • if its true the your HDD supports 3GB/s mode but your motherboard does not .
  • So place the jumper on the HDD on 1.5GB/s combination.
then
  • Disconnect the 80 GB,
  • Connect the new HDD,
  • Boot from any bootable xp or vista or any disk tool like erd commander and try to format the new HDD.
  • Then connect the new HDD and boot from it.
Tell me what happened.
