    What type of sound? If it was a Mechanical sound like a loose bearing the HDD is probebly damaged betond repair. If it was a couple of beeps, that is the power on self test failure. I think you press F2 while the system boots to acces BIOS. Then you can configure and check the disks. Hope this helps.

You should make sure the fault is with the drive by going into the BIOS settings. There should be a list of devices. Depending on the computer you have, you may need to move through a few menus to find this. If there is no PATA port/device listed at all, then there may be a problem with your motherboard. If there is a place for a PATA device in the list, but BIOS says there is no device present, then the problem is almost definitely your hard drive. Physically repairing hard drives is a very tricky process, and it is almost always more cost-effective just to buy a new drive. It certainly should not be attempted by someone with no previous experience in the subject. Hopefully your important data is backed up.

You did not indicate that the 40 Gb hard drive had Windows installed on it and whether it was the original hard disk for this computer.
There is a possibility the 40Gb hard drive is faulty.
Try installing the 40Gb hard drive as a slave drive with the 80Gb drive as the master drive (don't forget to set the jumper on the 40Gb hard drive as Slave. Check the BIOS to see if it detects the 40Gb hard drive, and when the computer boots up, if it can see the 40Gb hard drive and opens the various folders and files, then the hard drive is OK.

Trying to install a Samsung PATA 160GB HD in my recently bought ued Solo 5300.I see no cables etc, just some pins at the back of the HD slot. Do I need to take the whole unit apart to get at any cables?...


larry, is your motherboard PATA capable? meaning, are there 4-8 red female connectors on your motherboard?
If there is no compatibility with your PATA/IDE Motherboard, you can purchase at any local computer shops PATA-IDE converters... ranging $15USD.
This converts the PATA DATA+Power to your motherboard.
The HD you have requires Jumpers. Hence why they look like card slots on the back.
Before purchasing any cables, be sure to notice if your motherboard is PATA capable and relieve less stress on you :)

Sata hdd not detected.


Check the bios to see if it made the pata drive primary. If it did the system will try to boot off of your backup drive and you could think that it is not seeing your sata drive. If that is the problem you must go into the drive configuration and make the sata primary.
