"mack them all one Hard Disk Drive"? do you mean make them into one Hard disk drive?

if you have 3 "physical" Hard Disk Drives, im sorry but thats not possible

but if the 3 Hard Disk Drives are only partitioned you could use any partition manager software like Partition Magic or Acronis Disc Director suite to combine the 3 Hard disk partition into one...

hope this helps

Which external hard drive shall i purchase for the gateway dx4320-01e desktop


Any external USB hard drive will work with your Gateway. Drivers for these USB hard drives are not required unless your Gateway is running with Windows 98.
External USB hard drives come in various disk capacities, select a hard disk with a capacity that suits your requirements

Tip

10 reasons why PCs crash-You must know tip 4


4 Hard disk drives

After a few weeks, the information on a hard disk drive starts to become piecemeal or fragmented. It is a good idea to defragment the hard disk every week or so, to prevent the disk from causing a screen freeze. Go to

* Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-Disk Defragmenter

This will start the procedure. You will be unable to write data to the hard drive (to save it) while the disk is defragmenting, so it is a good idea to schedule the procedure for a period of inactivity using the Task Scheduler.

The Task Scheduler should be one of the small icons on the bottom right of the Windows opening page (the desktop).

Some lockups and screen freezes caused by hard disk problems can be solved by reducing the read-ahead optimisation. This can be adjusted by going to

* Start-Settings-Control Panel-System Icon-Performance-File System-Hard Disk.

Hard disks will slow down and crash if they are too full. Do some housekeeping on your hard drive every few months and free some space on it. Open the Windows folder on the C drive and find the Temporary Internet Files folder. Deleting the contents (not the folder) can free a lot of space.

Empty the Recycle Bin every week to free more space. Hard disk drives should be scanned every week for errors or bad sectors. Go to

* Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-ScanDisk

Otherwise assign the Task Scheduler to perform this operation at night when the computer is not in use.

Diskettedrive 1 seek failure primary hard disk drive 1 not found secondary hardisk drive 1 not found cp says strike f1 but cp boot only up to xp logo then re start again and so on again and again


If both of the hard drives are on the same data cable/disk drive controller it is unlikely that both the have failed. Reseat the data cable connectors on the hard drives and at the motherboard.
Reboot you computer and hopefully it will boot up.
Check the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drives.
If not the disk drive controller on the motherboard may be faulty.

I own a emachine w3622 and changed the hard drive. The computer reconizes the new hard drive but when I go to use the operating system disk that came with my computer says disk boot failure. Not only that...


The disk that came with your system is a recovery disk only. You will need a full installation disk from your local retailer or you can match the OS from your old HDD and use the serial key on the side/back of your machine. If you just wanted more space, install both drives and set the original one as the boot drive. the new drive, if properly installed (refer to your hdd instructions and jumper settings) you will see the second drive under "My Computer" as additional storage
GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE RATE THIS POST AS FIXYA!!

It will come on but it says primary hard disk drive 0 found and secondary hard disk drive 1 not found


  • Hi, there are (3) three areas that you can search to find: Hard Disk Drives. 1. From the Desktop, click on the Computer Icon to open the "Hard Drives (window)," next find the Hard Disk Drive (1), this is the "Primary" (C:) Drive. 2. Next, in the Devices with Removable Storage (1)below is the "Secondary" Drive, this will be the (CD or DVD Drives (D:), for "External Drives" the drives locations will be (E: or F:). 3. "If the CD, or DVD Drive is present in this area?" Right click to open, select the Properties "icon" the window opens; in the "All disk drives" (block), select, and "highlight" the CD or DVD Drive, next click on the Propertie's button below! 4. In the Device Status (block), see: if the device is "working properly?" Next, click on the Drives button, select to "Update Drivers." Note: The computer screen may "blink' (3-5 times), this means the update has taken place, Click on the "Apply and OK buttons, to finish. "You may be ask to "Restart the computer, if not? Restart the computer." *The "Second" area is the "All Programs" in the Start Menu, scroll to find: Media Disk Player. Select to open, click on "Setup, and Install." Follow all instruction carefully! *The "Third" area is in the Control Panel from the Start Menu; find in the (right pane). Open the "Contol Panel" go to, and select Hardware and Sound, in the next window, click to open the Device Manager; scroll to find: DVD/CD-ROM drives. Click to open; do the same as above instructions, step by step. "Did this solution help? If so, Helpful Ratings Feedback is appreciated, thanks paul7of9"

Drive not recognized under Vista Home Premium 64-bit


I have seen drives not recognized for a few reasons. Bad drives, drives not jumpered correctly or full-disk encryption was used on them. Here are my thoughts:
Try making sure that the drive is jumpered to Master. Should be a jumper on the back of the drive.
Make sure you did not encrypt the hard drive using full disk encryption.
I use an USB IDE drive enclosure when recovering customer's data using a Vista computer and have not had any issues other than the ones mentioned above.
Let us know if this helps or what you find out.

I have a 20X Memorex multi function disk drive and have from time to time tried to use it for backing up/storing important data. My question is if I "verify" the burn there will be errors. I have also...


As for your question of disk vs hard drives, DVD's and CD's that are burnt from a computer are more easily damaged then hard drive data. The best idea if you are looking for a good backup solution is an external hard drive in my opinion. There are many opinions on this very subject so you will receive many opinions. There are no wrong answers just opinions and personal preference. Another solution you can try is an external HD using a program such as Symantec Ghost and create a full image of your hard drive.

I am getting a message that my drive d has low disk space available please help me..


If you're D:\ is a hard drive, you can delete non needed data to free up hard drive space. At today prices for hard drives you might consider buying a larger size drive. Like this drive. http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=117008
This is a PATA/IDE drive. Seagate warrants their drives for five years. You will not run out of drive space any time soon.
Windows XP description of low disk space. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/285107
If you hard disk is a serial ATA SATA drive you can increase its size by upgrading to this drive. http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=117007
