Hello
You have done a great mistake, by opening the hard drive without proper enviornment. It should only be opened at static free and sust free [ an extreemely clean] enviornment. Dudt with 2 microns will get damage the device. it shouldn't be opened. There is nothing you can do by yoursef. The work inside a hard disc should be doneby a well experienced and trained personnel and a very clean envionment, dust free, static free, and so on. It is very like an open heart surgerey. Sometimes mor than that. OK.

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.

My hd sata 750 gb is not recognized


Hello sir, hi, check your bios setup, usually you press F10, F2 or del key to go to bios, and find setup for HDD, make sure the HDD is connected/enabled. If not the HDD sata drive may be loose. Under the Laptop, locate a cylindrical icon, this is where the access panel to the HDD, open the slot, and see if the hdd is solidly connected. If the problem still persist, buy a new hard drive, but first get warranty for it. stores usually give a year. check it first.

I cant install vista OS on this MBD , by sata HDD


You must enter setup at boot and select the CD/DVD as first boot. Then ensure that the BIOS settings have SATA enabled. When CD/DVD is first boot watch the screen for 'press any key to boot from cd' message is displayed. The boot screen will say how to enter setup. Typical buttons are F2, Delete, F1, F10 -you did not say which manufacturer. OEM trumps mobo maker with BIOS setup.

Hard disk drive not detected


firstly check your cable connections, then log onto your bios setup menu during startup and check whether the Hard drive is detected by your bios, if it is then you can try to format the harddrive using the ntfs system (use the long formatt) if you are using windows xp or later if using any earlier os then formatt with the FAT32 system.
If your HDD is not detected by the bios then try to download bios updates for your motherboard and install thed in windows. is this does not work then its time to get a new HDD. thanks

HDD Size Recognition


Hi, 10243MB is 10.02 GB..

You will not get exactly 10.2GB out of the drive, as most HDD makers use the 1000MB = 1GB ratio, as really 1024MB = 1GB.

So the bios is detecting the drive correctly.

Hi, Muhammad, It sounds to like you have been infected with a virus and will need to run an antivirus program at bootup. If you are unable to do this yourself then it is not a big job for a computer technician to do for you. Regards mistyman
