Question about HP Compaq Presario SR1720NX (EL435AA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I replaced the hard drive because of the click of death. When I booted the cpu, I got a error message saying, system boot failure, install disk press enter. I place recovery disk in and disk started to install windows, then I got error message, hard drive cant be found. Next I check to see if hard drive was install properly. Check. Then I unplugged and plug all i d e and sata cable cords, even brought a new i d e cable cord. Check. Still receive the same message that hard drive cant be found. The dvd/cd is found but not the hard drive. I even switch the dvd/cd into the other cpu board port and it works, but not the hard drive. Any help is highly appreciated. Thank you in advance. W.P.

You should check if your PSU is providing enough power to the hard drive. In case the hard drive requires more power, you should either replace it or get a better PSU.

Consult a professional for best results.
