    when you get into manage and select disk management... you need to allocate the some space for use then that's the only time you can format or assign a drive letter and use it.

Reset de2700 bios password


If you forgot your BIOS password. see this... http://www.wikihow.com/Break-a-BIOS-Password
If the above does not work, and you have important files that you don't want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. At least you may not lose you files.

How to install 2 t hard drive in computer compaq


A 2Tb hard disk will be a SATA hard drive. If your PC Desktop does not have a SATA disk controller then your have a couple of options.

1. Insert a SATA controller card into the PCI expansion slot, mount the SATA hard drive inside the PC case and then connect the SATA hard drive to the controller (you will also need a 4 pin power to SATA adapter cable) and install the SATA controller driver.

2. The other option (and the easiest) is to purchase an external USB 2Tb hard drive. All you need to do is, plug it into the USB port of your computer and it will see it as an external storage device.

Hi, I get an error message when I try to connect and install a Maxtor 500 GB external hard drive to my computer. The message reads "the device cannot start (Code 10). Can you assist?


What is the error message you get?

What OS are you using?

Depends on your hard drive, some computer commonly ask for a driver when you plug something in it. might as well try reading the manual of your external hard drive, if it doesn't require a driver, then the problem "might" be in your operating system and/or in your computer.

Supplied also are data connectors to link the IDE or SATA hard drive with a USB port. Use this adaptor set to retrieve data from a hard drive when it is not mounted in a computer.

Maxtor III 500 GB external hard drive is no longer recognized by computer. No driver installed ???


Drivers are not necessary for hard drives - as long as your computer recognized it when you first installed it, you're all set. It sounds like your hard drive has failed, or become disconnected. Check the connections for IDE or SATA, and power. If they're both connected properly, listen when you power up the computer to hear if that particular hard drive spins up. If it doesn't, it might be dead.
If you have access to another computer, try installing the drive into it temporarily and see if it is recognized in that computer. If the drive has failed, you might be able to get it replaced by Maxtor if it's still under warranty. Unfortunately they will not recover any data on the drive for you; you must pay a data recovery specialist to recover any data on the drive, and this is expensive, so only do this if it's extremely important data.
