Hello mondeo jum,

The best place to get one is to refer to the pc/laptop manufacturer website. If your computer is built by someone, then find out the maker of the mother board and refer to there website and search for the bios set up disk.

Hope this helps and good luck.

My hp desktop says internal hard disk not found how do i reset my drive


First reset the CMOS. Check your motherboard specs for how to do this or remove the small round silver battery from the motherboard; wait 30 seconds and reinstall it. (It is a good idea to replace with a new battery.) This will reset the CMOS. Then reboot to see if HDD is detected. If not, go into the BIOS setup (repeatedly hit F10 at HP logo screen) and check to see if your hard drive is listed. You may have to set it to "on". If it is listed in BIOS, but not detected another drive (a bad one) could prevent it from being detected. If you have any removable or external drives attached to your computer, disconnect them. Reboot your computer to see if your HDD is detected. If not, open your case and disconnect the data cable from all drives except your primary hard drive. This includes the floppy, optical, zip, backup, or secondary hard drive(s). If your HDD is detected, reconnect each drives data cable one at a time rebooting between each. If after reconnecting a drive and rebooting, your HDD is not detected the last drive is a bad drive and preventing your HDD detection. I have found that sometimes a bad drive that is connected will let the HDD be detected then on later boots the HDD will not be detected. Also it is possible that your BIOS is corrupted. Let's hope not. Another possibility is a bad motherboard. I hope this helps you.

Operating system not found


Hi Roderick Sykes:

You need to Verify your BIOS:
Verify the computer's BIOS settings to make sure that BIOS lists and recognizes the hard disk. See the computer documentation or contact the hardware manufacturer for information about how to verify the BIOS settings.

After you verify that the computer's BIOS detects the hard disk, restart the computer, and then test to determine whether the issue is resolved. If the issue is not resolved, or if the computer's BIOS cannot detect the hard disk, you may have issues with your hardware. Contact the hardware manufacturer to inquire about how to resolve this issue. You may have to replace the hard disk.

Also use a system utilty software like RegInOut to avoid such type of errors in future.

Hope this solution works for you.

Internal hdd none in bios set up


If the BIOS cannot detect the hard disk, this usually indicates that the hard disk has failed.
To get the Lenovo operating again, replace the hard disk and install Windows in the new hard disk plus
the Lenovo's device drivers and your programs.

I have 1tb hdd but the windows did not detect my hdd, but on the cmos it is detected what should i do


If it is seen in the Bios ..it probably just need a 3rd party Raid driver to operate it ...I assume that it is on a sata bus...and the problem is kinda common ...Another thing ..take a look in the cmos setting and look where the hdd is seen if there is something called ACHI ...that needs to be disabled in order to see the disk auto in windows...otherwise it will be detected in bios..but when you try to install windows on it it loads the primary files and says that it do not find any hdd..on the system ..
If you already have one disk with the operating system and you just added this one ...and you need it like a secondary ..try to go to device manager and force the detection by right click on the computer (in device manager ) and choose scan for hardware changes..if it is all ok with it ..this should make it enabled and the windows will install it automatically
Another thing that it may be wrong ...in case you added it new..and like secondary ..is that it is not formatted and has no partitions ..in this case try to use a program like partition magic or ..a bootable windows to run it until you see the partition ...and from the unpartitioned space will appear ..make at least 2 partitions and stop the installation ...
than just boot normally ...and format the partitions in windows..
If it is a Ide hdd be sure you select the right pin -jumpers position ..in accord with the position on the ide cable ...I mean master or slave ..
In all cases default the bios settings first ..and after that look for ACHI feature and disable it ..

When compuetr starts no boot device available but BIOS seen


If there is no HDD or any other boot device the BIOS will always be present. This problem occurs if you haven't installed any Operating System on the HDD. So when the computer is booting it finds no booting device files and that's why showing error message. Format your HDD and install OS to boot smoothly. But if you have HDD with OS still this error happening then it might be a reason of corrupt system files which are required during booting or it may be the case that your HDD is damaged and cannot boot from there. If your HDD is damaged and still showing on the BIOS it may happen because it is detecting as a device but the as the device is damaged is cannot boot from it. Check these steps to solve your issue.

PXE-E61: MEDIA TEST FAILURE, CHECK CABLE PXE-M0F: exiting Broadcom PXE ROM. Operating system not found. how 2 solve or repair? help me...


The PXE-X61 error means that the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive.
1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.

2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.

3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.

4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.

No HDD Found


First boot to the system setup and see if the Hard Disk Drive is detected in the BIOS. If it is not detected, then the HDD has most likely failed and will need replacement.

If not detected in the bios, open the chassis and reseat the Data and power cables to the HDD

How to detect two IDE drives with same brand


You need to set one of the drives to be 'master' and the other to be 'slave'.
This is done by positioning jumpers on the back of the harddrives.
Pretty sure that on the drives is explained somewhere how to position the jumper, for several options.

Good luck,
Please post some feedback.
