There should be a jumper on the hard drive to select between 3G and 1.5G speeds. It appears that your MB only supports the 1.5G speed.

My mitac m32-sp3068 desktop computer,says bios cannot find hard drive or discs


Possible hdd failure. Reset the system and check the BIOS settings for the hdd. Make sure the settings are correct.
The system will not lose just a portion of the BIOS, all or none.

BIOS won't recognise SATA hdd.BIOS is Pheonix-Award BIOS v6. 00PG. Do you think I need to update the BIOS?


Hi, according to your mobo manual it supports SATA1/SATA2 hard drives so it's recommended to update BIOS, the latest I found it has release date 2006-06-29, you can find it in the folllowing link: Support For K8MM MSI Global

I've replaced the hard drive with a 160gb drive but windows xp pro installer says it's only 131070 MB. On another computer it says it's 152625 MB. Do I need to update the BIOS?


no, when u install a partition on a hdd it will not show when u scan for disk size from windows as the partitions are seperated to keep it safe from many common issues. it looks like you may have installed windows again once it was in the new computer or just allocated additional space to the partition......dont worry, if your hdd gets full, windows will suggest to automatically slim down the partition for you




good luck and pls rate this post!!!!!! :D

I purchased an ex lease acer travelmate 6592 and I now find the hdd is password protected, I have tried another hard drive but the computer does not recognise either drive.How do I get around this problem...


There is software available to remove HDD passwords, or a computer store may be able to remove it.

You do not need an OS installed in order to update the BIOS; you can use a floppy disk and a BIOS update program to update the BIOS.

Sometimes, you have to restart the computer a few times to get the BIOS to recognize another HDD. You could install the other HDD, and try to boot with a bootable CD with partitioning capabilities

How can i get update for Bios


Hi there.

You can download the BIOS update from the Acer website here:
http://us.acer.com/acer/service.do?LanguageISOCtxParam=en&miu10einu24.current.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&sp=page15e&ctx2.c2att1=25&miu10ekcond13.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&CountryISOCtxParam=US&ctx1g.c2att92=453&ctx1.att21k=1&CRC=2054404012

Just select your make and model, then underneath that, select your Operating System. Then just click on the BIOS tab, then the orange icon to the left of the BIOS file.

Hope that helps.
