Hi Andrea I have just connected a hard drive to my Laptop and it isn't recogized.. can you help. I'm running on Windows XP Thanks Ian


Not Andrea, just wanted to offer;

1) Installed a new larger Harddrive for the laptop?
There is a special procedure for this. Depends on what laptop we're discussing here.
A new harddrive will have no operating system on it. BIOS needs to recognize the harddrive.

{When you press the Power On button of your laptop, the first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset. BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on, and hands the laptop over to the Operating System. WinXP is one example of an O/S }

Some laptops have a procedure where basic info is stored until the new harddrive is installed. Then the basic info is transferred to the new harddrive.

In any case I suggest going into the BIOS Setup, and on the main page see if the Harddrive is recognized.
It will be listed.
If it isn't listed you have to manually set the harddrive's parameters. (Type them in)
The Cylinders, Heads, and Sectors.

When BIOS recognizes the harddrive, then you can install Windows XP off of the Restoration Disk, (Repair. Also know as Non-Destructive Installation), or a fresh, new genuine copy.

2) If this is a reference to an external harddrive, there may be an electronic problem with the unit.
The main problem that happens with an external harddrive, is the small circuit board inside goes bad.

This small circuit board is an Interface Board.
It connects to the Harddrive inside the case of the external harddrive, and allows a USB cable to be used.

If this is found to be the problem simply remove the harddrive inside, and install it into an economical external enclosure.

Awaiting further information so I know what we are dealing with.

A) Is this a reference to a new harddrive being installed into the laptop?
If so, laptop manufacturer name, and Model Number.
(Bottom of laptop in a white Service Tag, or sticker)

B) Is this a reference to an extermal harddrive?
Manufacturer name, and Model Number

WD 500G HDD suddenly un-readable; changed name to local disk, says I need to format in order to use it. I have tons of important stuff on there.


Could you confirm if the problem with the drive not being recognized is a problem with the USB cable? I have a 250GB passport and it worked fine with my XP. Once I decided to reformat it to NTFS and tried to do so by plugging into my new windows7 laptop the problems started.

It seems a memory error, try to change the RAM; if you have more than one RAM card try to remove one by one and every time check if the error persists. Let we know if it works, because there are many possibilities for this error!

How to remove hard drive from toshiba satellile m55-s135 laptop


This pictorial guide will help me explain,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba_Satellite_M55/laptop_motherboard_1.htm

ALL power removed from the laptop. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.
Follow Anti-Static Precautions.

Place a towel, or suitable object on a table, then turn the laptop over, and place on the towel.
If you click on the photo in Step 2 you will see the Harddrive Compartment Cover.

Remove the Philips head screw.
Lift up on the side of the Harddrive Compartment Cover where the screw was.
Remove the cover, lay it aside.

The harddrive plugs into an interface in the Harddrive Compartment.
On the opposite end of the harddrive where it plugs into the interface, should be a single Philips head screw.
Remove the screw.

Use the fabric cloth to gently pull the harddrive away from the interface.
The harddrive may come back only so far, then the end is lifted up to remove the harddrive.
(End opposite of the back of the harddrive where it plugs into the interface)

Use caution as you can accidentally bend pins on the harddrive.

For additional questions, or to clarify what I have stated please post in a Comment.
Regards,
joecoolvette

Lap top can't find hard drive


Hi,

Here are some steps that you can try.

- Check if the harddrive is recognized in the BIOS (Basic Input Output System). Normally you will see values beside "Drive 0" at the first page if the harddrive is detected. If it says none or blank, then it is not detected. Reload BIOS default settings and try to boot up the unit to see if it will pick up the harddrive.
- If the harddrive is not detected in the BIOS, you need to unscrew the harddrive compartment at the bottom of the laptop.
- Reinsert the harddrive and check harddrive cable. Also try to use a good known harddrive if yours is defective.

Hope this helps.

When I start my laptop it makes loud beeps, then it says no hard drive detected... Whats wrong?


The harddrive is not working, or is not connected properly.

Shut the laptop down.
Remove the battery.
Turn the laptop upside down.
Remove the screws in order to remove the harddrive cap. (The acer laptops have small signs on the caps. The cap that has the little circe-cylinder signs on it, should unlock the harddrive)
Remove the screws keeping the harddrive in place.
Remove the harddrive.
Clean the connectors on both the harddrove as the motherboard.
Reconnect the harddrive and turn the laptop on.

If it is working, turn it off, and fit all the screws in again.

If it is not working, then you probably have to change the harddrive. You could also connect the harddrive to another computer, to make sure if it is broken.

I have left my hard drive off for 12 hours as adviced, but on turning it on again the problem is still the same. The drive is trying to boot up over and over again.


My solution will be multipart, and lengthy. So if you're a coffee drinker, I suggest you make yourself a fresh pot

Reasoning? I'm going to explain a little bit about the hardware makeup of an external harddrive, and multiple solutions that in the hopes of one of them, may cure your problem.
I'm trying to arm you with as much information as I can, so you can use deductive reasoning, and take the best approach for You.

General symptoms that affect an external harddrive,

1.Bad USB cable. Although it is unlikely, USB cables can go bad.

2.Power supply.
To solve this problem, you need another power supply just like the one you have, for a test. ( Not exactly laying around. I have a work around for that, which I will detail later)

3.Controller failed.
Inside that external enclosure, (The metal, or plastic box of the external harddrive), is an ordinary harddrive such as used in a desktop, or laptop computer.

Yours has a Desktop size harddrive in it. (They measure 3 and a half inches across in width. 3.5"
Laptop HD's measure 2.5")

Harddrives are IDE, or SATA. All harddrives have been going to SATA for quite some time.
Yours is a SATA harddrive.

Inside the external case is an Interface, connected on a Controller Board.

Harddrives use metal round pins that are built on the harddrive itself. These in turn plug into an Interface, or also can be referred to as a Socket.

With an external harddrive, the harddrive itself may plug right into the Interface, (Socket. The metal pins of the harddrive plug into the Interface socket holes), or the Interface plugs onto the harddrive, and cables lead from it to a small PCB in the external harddrive enclosure. (Case)

The metal pins transfer data (Information) back and forth. (Signal pins)
Power for the harddrive is also transmuted through these pins.
Just like plugging in a lamp to a receptacle.

The Controller Board is a PCB. Printed Circuit Board.
This is connected to the bottom of the harddrive. It controls the mechanism inside the harddrive.

This is a link to Howstuffworks>Computer Channel>
Computer Hardware>Hard Drives and Disks>How Harddrives Work,

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/hard-disk.htm

When you arrive at Page 5 you'll see the Controller Board. (Their term is Electronics Board)
The Controller Board can be safely removed from the harddrive, and not ruin the harddrive.

You cannot open a harddrive case itself, where the Platters and Arms reside, Unless you have the proper environment.
('Clean Room'. A 99.9% dust free room that would make NASA jealous! This type of room is where a typical harddrive is assembled)

If you use an ESD wrist s-trap and connect it to a good ground source, plus work on a table, you can safely remove, and replace the Controller Board. (No magnetism Anywhere near! NO speakers!)
An average ESD (Electro Static Discharge) wrist s-trap is about $6.

This link shows the connector pins I have been referring to,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Hdd.jpg

(You can click on the photo to enlarge it)

At the bottom of the photo is the back of the harddrive. All the way to the right are 4 pins. These are not recommended to be used on a SATA harddrive, but are for power to the drive.

All the way to the left, is a connection which has 15 pins for the Power connector, and to the right of it are 7 pins for the Data connector.
(It's in the upside down U shaped opening. There is a rectangular wide opening all the way to the left, then a narrow rectangular opening, then the upside down U shaped opening)

4.Harddrive failure. The mechanism inside the harddrive itself has failed. These are mechanical components, as you can see in the Howstuffworks link. Average lifespan for a harddrive is 5 years. Depends on how much it's used.

Solutions:

A.If the harddrive is still under warranty, you can see if the manufacturer will replace it. HOWEVER, they do not guarantee anything that is stored on it. You will get another harddrive minus your information.

B.You can take it to a Data Recovery Specialist. Average price is $50 per hour on up. Average time is minimum 1 hour, and usually takes 3.
I could be mistaken, do research for your area.

C.
1.You could start with using another USB cable, and see if this is the problem.

No?
2.Then it's on to the power supply. This solution cures 2 possible problems. I didn't mention, that sometimes the small PCB board in the external case also goes bad. Most of the time, according to hits on the internet, this is a major problem with a LaCie external hardrive.

The small Printed Circuit Board inside their external harddrive case, (Enclosure), goes bad.

Solution is to buy an external enclosure for a 3.5" SATA harddrive. Take the harddrive out of the LaCie external enclosure, and install it in this one.

Check computer hardware websites on the internet. (Examples of two are Tigerdirect, and Newegg) Look for Harddrive Enclosure. Then 3.5, then SATA.
Average price for a decent one is $20.

3.If this doesn't cure it it may be the Printed Circuit Board on the bottom of the harddrive. If your data warrants saving, then you may want to buy the SAME style of harddrive, borrow it's PCB, and get your information off of your old harddrive. More cost I grant you, but cheaper than a Recovery Specialist. You aren't buying another LaCie external harddrive, you are buying just the saqme SATA harddrive used inside.

Past this, the harddrive mechanism itself has quit. Only a very competent, reliable, Recovery Specialist can recover your data, if possible.

Operating system not found


I would say either a bad harddrive or bad boot sector. If you are looking for a DIY solution, youll want to test the harddrive by running disk wizard or something similar or pulling the harddrive and putting it in a harddrive enclosure (available from NewEgg.com). The enclosure will hookup to another computer through usb or firewire and will allow you to backup your files if the harddrive is still good. If the harddrive isnt good, youll get errors while copying the files or it wont allow you to access the harddrive at all. Else, take it to a computer repairman to have them pull the harddrive and run tests on it.

Computer will not boot up, message no bootable device


Hi there.
I have to agree with proton on this as it could well be a memory issue.
Remove all power to the laptop including the battery and make sure the laptop is powered down, turn the laptop upside down and look for a panel with a couple of screws, unscrew and remove the panels so the memory is in view, like this >>>>>>>
35dd6e3.jpeg
Unclip the memory, clean the brass pins and the slots with a soft, clean, dry paintbrush, reseat the memory, put back the panel and reboot the laptop.
Use the recovery CD to restore the system as you were doing.
Please post back if you need anymore help or advise and thanks for using FixYa!!

Wan't boot up


If the dvr isnt booting the harddrive, then the harddrive isnt seated properly in the removeable harddrive drawer, or the harddrive is improperly formated, or you have the wrong type of harddrive, or the master/slave settings on the harddrive are not set properly (master). what ive found is an 80gig/160gig is the most that these things will handle. and some brands work and some brands don't. and the harddrives have to be IDE/EIDE type drives. but it sounds like a harddrive interface problem. They like the older harddrive formatts/(not xp/vista)....good luck!!!!
