If it was an older computer, maybe it could take only an IDE hard drive.

    Sorry, bad answer.

    "IDE" and "EIDE" are virtually synonymous, at least for the last 15 years or so.

The motherboard BIOS most likely have a hard drive size limit. Yes you can create two or mare partitions to use the rest of the hard drive space.
Go to Control Panel - Administrator Tools - Disk Manager to create a partition and format this partition.

Hard drive cant be accessed.


Hi welcome to Fixya, there are more than one reasons why the hard drive cannot be access. First you should make sure the hard drive is properly connected, if the problem still exist you should take the hard drive out of the computer and put in into another computer that you know is working. If the computer boot that mean it is the connection in your computer is faulty. If is does not boot that mean the hard drive if faulty and should be replace. Thank you

How to install secind sata hard drive


It all depends on how many SATA ports are available on your motherboard.
Older motherboards (EIDE+SATA) usually only had one SATA port. In that case I'd advise purchasing an internal PCI SATA card (around US$ 30).
Modern motherboards (SATA + legacy EIDE) have two, four or even six SATA ports available, and you basically just have to screw the hard disk in an empty slot of the appropriate size (3.5"), and connect the cables. You may have to purchase both data and power SATA cables though. Then, format and install the drive (advice: use the one OS you use more often) from Control Panel > Administrative Tools > My Computer > Disk Management. And you're done.

Pc will not boot, it can not see hard drive. tried new hard drive but no good. The hard drive works in other computer. the hard drive can not be detected in BIOS.


Try switching the eide ribbons from the CDrom to the hard drive. Sometimes, the computer tries to read the cdrom as the primary and the hard drive as the slave. I generally just leave the CDrom out, place the hard drive in with ribbon and let it register in bios.

Need new laptop harddrive


Go to either bestbuy.com or compusa.com and look for the hard drive there. The hard drive will be cheaper going thru either of those places. Also check out pricewatch.com cause you can compare prices there. Also go thru google and check out the shopping results of the hard drive your looking for as well.

Lots of places to check and the hard drive will definitely be cheaper then going thru HP.

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.
