How to connect my Seagate back up plus hardrie to PC


your frustration is from not understanding that you have 2 different computers in operation and so you have to install the driver for the hard drive on each computer and to ensure that it is compatible with each one
just it plugs in and pays on one doesn't mean that it will automatically do so on any other computer that you attach it to
on the pc google the manufacturer web site for the hard drive and down load the driver for it
then go to properties and click on the compatibility tab and click the box and high light the win os you have running , apply and ok

Iintend to change my sata hard drive to a SSD hard drive.How do I format before change


When you install Windows on your new SSD hard drive you can then transfer data from your old hard drive using an USB hard drive adapter or install the old hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an USB external hard drive after you have transferred your data to your laptop.
When you connect the USB hard drive adapter to the laptop, the laptop will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the various folders anf files and copy them to your new hard disk.

My laptop crashed and we installed a new hard drive, as HP said, but we received a message that it did not recognize operating system. So we ordered recovery disks and put those in turned it on, still no...


ok, First you should understand the new hard drive is empty, it is not even formatted. At this point the most likely issue is the bios not recognizing the Hard Drive because the Bios is not set to automatically detect the hard drive. Enter the Bios and go to the hard Drive selection sub menu and have the computer automatically detect the hard drive size and type. Then go to the boot sequence menu and alter the boot order to CDROM, Floppy (If you have one), Hard Drive, Network. Reboot the computer and you should see the RAM test, hard Drive Identification and then the CDROM should start to boot. I can't be more specific about the steps because your post didn't include the model of the laptop. All of this assumes your CDROM is still in working order since HP laptops have a known issue with CDROM's going out for no reason. The hard way for dealing with this would be to get an encloser to put a hard drive in to make it portable and connect to another computer and do the partitioning and formatting of that new drive on the other computer and solve the problem that way.

PXE - E63 error


This error is related to the hard drive.
It could be a faulty connection on the hard drive - try re-seating the hard drive.
The hard drive may be faulty - go into the BIOS and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.
If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive then the hard drive may be faulty ot the laptop's hard disk controller could be faulty.
To determine if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and connect it into an USB hard drive adapter and plug this adapter into a working compute's USB port. If this computer cannot see this hard drive as an external hard drive then this hard drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.
When the new hard drive is installed in the Compaq laptop, insert your Windows installation CD and install Windows, plus the Compaq's device drivers and your programs to get a working laptop again.

Disc drive stopped working


A hard drive can stop working just like any other electronic device when it becomes faulty.
First go into the BIOS configuration and check if the hard disk is detected. If not it could be faulty.
Next re-seat the hard drive, it just may need connecting again to make proper electrical connection.
If it still does not work, then remove the hard drive and plug it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an external USB hard drive nor can you open the folders and files then the hard drive is definitely faulty.
To get the laptop functioning again, replace the hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive together with the laptop's device drivers and your programs.

This fault is usually a disk controller problem/fault or the hard drive is not making proper connection or most likely the hard drive is faulty.
Try reseating the hard drive first.
If this doesn't work, check the BIOS to see if it detects the hard drive.
If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive then remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an external hard drive and cannot open the folders and files, then the hard drive is confirmed faulty.
Install a new hard drive and install Windows on this drive together with the device drivers and programs to get a working laptop again.

Check the BIOS configuration for the hard disk, if the BIOS does not detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty or the disk controller is faulty.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. This computer should detect the hard drive as an external disk drive. If this computer cannot detect it and/or cannot open the folders etc. the the hard drive is faulty.
Then you need to install a new hard drive in the Acer and install Windows, the device drivers and your programs to get the laptop operational again.

This error means the operating system on the hard disk couldn't load due to possible faulty hard drive or disk controller. The fault could also mean the hard drive needs reseating to make proper connection. Reseat the hard drive and if you still get this error, then you need to determine if the disk controller is faulty.
To do this, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer see this hard drive as an external drive and you can also see the contents of the drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is a faulty disk controller. If the computer cannot detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty.
Then get a new hard drive insert it into youe laptop and install Windows to get your laptop operatioal.
