The IDE cable or the power cable are not connected. Also may be it is acting up due to master/slave problems. Pull out the jumper and put it into CS mode. CS means cable select. Try it and let me know..

I have a 320 gb acclaim portable hard drive. My mac doesn't read it, the first time I plugged it the lap asked me if I wished to format it and I said yes. Now it doesn't read it, what can I


You formatted the hard drive on your laptop in NTFS and the MAC cannot read and write to this formatted NTFS hard drive.
THE FIX
Format the hard drive using your laptop BUT this time format it in FAT32.
The MAC can read and write to a FAT32 formatted hard disk, so now you can exchange data between the MAC and the Windows laptop.

Not seeing new hard disk or reading XP cd-rom


It can use any 31/2" IDE hard drive. 30 Gb should be OK
If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive or the CD drive then the drives maybe faulty or the disk controller in the computer is faulty.

Just installed brand new hard drive, 500 GBs. Upsized from 40 GB. Could there be a problem in set-up using XP Home. Keeps saying read disc error occured. Says Clear/ Alt/ Delete to restart, not working.


There might be a problem with the hard disk. You should hook the drive up to another computer and run a hard disk diagnostic test on the drive, such as Data Lifeguard Diagnostics by Western Digital to make sure that the drive is okay, even if it is brand new.

Hi, I have an error message on my notebook laptop reading: 'windows detected a hard drive problem (repair or replace disk). Disk Failure Name: ST98823AS ATA, Device Volume C:\. How do I go about repairing...


Leila, repairing a hard drive or replavcing it in a laptop is difficult due the the number of screws and bits and pices one has to remove to get to it. I suggest you take it to a computer specialist that deals with the brand of laptop near you New disk varies depending on size but average about$160.00 and min 2 hrs labor @ $90 and hour. The decision is is it cheaper to upgrade than repair?

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Getting noise in HP dv2700t 14" laptop


I wonder if the controller board on the motherboard is bad. I'd report it to HP again and see if they can fix it for you. Obviously they switch vendors for getting hard drives.
