Question about E-Machines Computers & Internet

I have an E-Machine W3107 desk top. I recently installed a western digital 120 hard drive as a slave but it would not jump. Can you give me any help in getting my system to jump. Thank you.

I'm sorry I'm not sure what you mean by "jump". If you mean to be recognized as slave & you already have a master hdd make sure you have jumpers on both hdd's set; master as master and slave as slave. Using cabel select requires (I could stand to be corrected) one hdd cable with at least 2 drive connections on it, and you would want your 2nd (slave) drives jumper set as CS.
Then it's best to boot into the bios and see if and what the drives are being recongnized as. Sometimes it helps to set the second one (maybe both) on Auto. If still not recongnized try the 2nd drive setting on User.
I hope this pertains to your promblem as I'm not sure what "jump" means. If not, please detail your problem further and I will
try another alternative.

Jump? Ha! Never heard that term. How about boot?
Nowadays people just load drives as Cable Select; it should have worked with the old drive set to Master, but try to set them both to that and try again, or boot to a LiveCD or the drive utility disk so you can configure them on that. If they don't appear correctly in the BIOS, just double-check that power and data cables go to each drive, etc. You may need to follow the BIOS instructions or enter the BIOS controls by hitting DEL or F10 on powering up until the menu appears; then you can select the drive to try to boot first, etc. and save your settings.

You need to configure first on your BIOS that it will detect 2 SATA Hard Disks so and set you Primary and Slave. If this doesn't work, basically your HD does not work anymore.

Does not get recognised by Desk top or Laptop Asks for Installation and drivers


these drive require a usb 2.0 port.
If you are using XP and do not have a 2.0 port in your computer
you may want to get a USB 2.0 pci card this will help.
if you are using vista, it should install the driver automatically.
also do not use it on a hub plug it into a usb port on the motherboard or a powered card.

Maxtor Internal EIDE hard drive dip switch settings.


I assume you have two IDE controllers? IDE1 and IDE2, I'll try to help, the primary HD needs to have the pin set to primary and the secondary set to slave, if you're running both of these drives off of the same ribbon cable. You may have to go into your BIOS settings and check to make sure the Primary HD is the WD drive.

Actually there is no solution, the hard drive is bad.
What I ended doing was recording the partition in iso. ( I had a Factory Partition)
Got a new hard drive 160G scorpio unfortunately it does not come with installation disc.
Installed Vista, and with vista created a partition and then installed the contents of the factory partition.
