The unit either came with a set of CDs that have the re-installation tools on it and that will do it OR there may be a partition on the hard drive that has these files and tools on it and you either have to make your CDs or run the tools from the utility partition. Be sure to not wipe this partition when you reformat or you will lose this.

Computer won't recognize external usb hard drive


try it on another computer if that dosent work you should
reformat your computer but first backup all your data by putting your another internal hardrive on your computer and move all your files you need to the empty hardrive and after that take the hardrive with all your stuff in it off the computer and then reformat the hardrive which the external hardrive does not work on and install a new operating system then put the other hardrive with all your stuff back on your computer and transfer your stuff into the hardrive with a operating system then try the external hardrive

OR
you can burn all your stuff into a CD or a DVD
OR
you can put all your stuff into FlashDrives and then after you reformat the hardrive with an operating system put your stuff back into the computer and after that the external hardrive should work

Will not boot up


Ive done a few dell mini notebooks and this problem was always corrupt hardrive or the hardrive died. Solution take hardrive out plug it as external into another pc see if it spins up and you see it show up on pc. If it does then itll be just corrupted and will need windows reinstalling. If it doesn't youll need another hardrive itll be dead. There not expensive depending on what size you wanting. Hope this helped.

How can you tell if your hardrive is damage? i have a toshiba satellite m50 laptop. I also want to know if the hardrive is calculated in percentage. I took my laptop to get it repaired and i was told that...


try using the basic utilities that are on the computer. disk clean up and scan disk. Scan **** should give you the info on how bad your hard drive really is. And yes any electrical connections installed improperly could cause harm.

I would like diagram on hooking hard drive to hard drive.


If you are trying to put another hardrive into your existing pc I could explain but you if would like something more visual then there is a tutorial here

its simple really since the computer auto detects the new hardrive. the hardest part are the jumpers on the back of the hardrive. You see one hardrive has to be set to Master and the other has to be set to slave. the hardrives can connect to the IDE cable (the big flat cable inside your pc) in any order but they cannot be both set to master. The jumpers are easy to switch and the hardrive itself will have a diagram right next to the jumpers to show you how to move the jumpers to make the selection.

its a great idea to have two drives in your pc in case something happens to the first, but i always recommend a hard backup (cd/dvd).
