My emachines says it cannot find the hard drive and i get blue screen after i restart it


Things to try:
1. Remove and reconnect the hard drive.
2. Remove all USB attached devices. Like other hard drives and anything non-critical.
3. Wipe and reinstall Windows once the hard drive is properly installed.
4. Replace hard drive if bad.

HP xw 4400 will not recognize my hard drive when trying to install OS Windows XP Prof.


Windows XP had a hard time recognizing hard drives larger than 127 GB. The best solution is to install Windows XP with service pack 2 or 3 already slipstreamed. Otherwise, you are going to have to partition your hard drive with at least 1 partition of 127 GB or smaller.

Hard Drive


You can replace it with a larger one, just make sure you buy the proper hard drive. If its and IDE hard drive, buy and IDE hard drive, if its an SATA Hard drive, buy an SATA Hard drive. also make sure after you install the new hard drive that you use the operating system cd to format the drive and to install the operating system.

Running out of space on my Emachine T1120, How can I add more memory for 10 GB music files that I have?


I would buy an external drive. You can get a external hard drive as your expanded storage area that connects to your computer via a USB cable. The plus side is its portable so you can take it anywhere with you and when you get a new computer you just plug it in and go.
