Not show drive on my computer panel


Hi,
Check if you hard drive is listed in Device Manager (System properties->Hardware->Device..) at Disk drives section (press + to list drives). If you can see 2 hard drives (I suppose the Quantum is the 2nd hdd in your pc) then maybe you should create a partition on it and format the new partition (you can do that from Disk Management section of Computer Management (Control panel ->Administrative tools -> Computer Management). If your hard drive is not listed in Device manager then it's not correctly connected or it's damaged (or, as I remember in a few cases this model was not compatible with some types of mainboards).

If this is the solution for your problem, please rate my post, otherwise give us more details.

Regards,
Andras

Different WIndows operating systems on two hard drives


main Dell Optiplex

Quantum Fireball
once you have installed them physically into your comptuer like that, start it up.

Format Quantum Fireball


Now you still have windows xp, and you have a clean 2nd hard drive.

You do not need to install windows xp on the 2nd drive

The board got burn on one of the chip


You have two separate questions.

1. I have a Quantum hard drive which got a burn on one of it chip on the green part it is from an IBM aptiva 95 all of my data is on it .

Unless you can find an _identical_ hard-drive, and disconnect the electronics from that disk-drive, and then connect the electronics to your hard-drive, your data is "lost". Or, find a "Data Recovery Service" -- for a large fee, they will repair your disk-drive, just long enough to burn a bunch of CD/DVD disks to hold all the "data".


2. I have onother that I have accendentally delete one of the partition which is the C drive

Download the "Partition Tool Editor" by the PowerQuest PartitionMagic people (now owned by Symantec):

ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/tools/pq/utilities/ptedit.zip

Unzip the file, and, while the "accident-prone" disk is connected ot your computer, run 'PTEDIT.EXE' to change the Partition Boot Table, to "undelete" the partition. It's *NOT* a tool for "novices" -- think carefully before making any changes to the Partition Table.

Does the Intel 82801 chipset recognize the full capacity of a quantum 20gb hard drive?


Yes it should recognize such small drive. Note that the partitions on the drive will affect how big drives are shown.

If the drive is partitioned into two 10GB parts then you should have C: 10GB and D: 10GB

Note that if the drive is partitioned not to use the full capasity then the capasity it is partitioned to will be shown instead.

Also Note that computer hard drives the capasity is not accurate presentation of the GB available. it will always be somewhat less than the reported size, for example 1000GB disk is shown as 931.50GB
500GB disk is shown as 465.76GB and so on.

Problem putting a 30 gig quantum lct 15 3.5"series as a slave


Did you switch the jumper config back to Master or CableSelect before trying to install them as a single drive? Also check the Maxtor website, (they owned Quantum too), for the correct jumper settings. Some of these drives (like the Quantum Fireball lct series) need TWO jumpers not just one.That was the trick that fixed mine from not being recognized by the Bios or the Windows setup disk....I got it used with only a single jumper, but it needed two to put it Cable Select mode.

Quantum Fireball Lct20 20 GB


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

A 20Gb Quantum Fireball LCT20 could be nearing its life end considering the length of time it has been in service. Perhaps what could be done is to perform a burn-in test on the 20Gb HD attaches as a Slave or Secondary on a 2nd PC or alternately, as an external mass storage device through an IDE to USB adapter. Burn-in test would be a multiple time scanning fro errors as those used by Norton Disk Doctor. Alternately, you can also Partition Magic to partition/format and eventually test the HD.

In your concern of PC slow down after 10 minutes, it is possible that:
  • the HD is slowing after some time or having difficulty searching for the called for system files;
  • heat related, either on the HD motor/bearings or even on the CPU (thermal throttling);
  • there are a number of software running in the background using the PC's memory;
  • presence of virus and/or malicious software.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

goto Control Panel, administrative tools, Computer Management, Disk Management, If it pops up a new disk install wizard follow the directions in it. If not then find the new disk that has no partition on it, right click on that drive to create a partition, then right click on the drive to format it, if it hasent done so already.
