Question about Computers & Internet
In windows XP-64 bit, Only one Harddisk detected by system,other hdd not detected why? HDD detail- 2*73 sas
In order for the bios to recognize the hdd's you have to make sure you have the jumpers on the end of the hdd next to the cable connection on the right pins. There are usually a picture on the lable of the hdd that shows which pins to put the jumper on according to master and slave selections. It sounds difficult but it isn't. you have to unplug the computer first and take the cover of the case off and disconnect the cable from the hdd's and unscrew the any screws that are holding the hdd in the slot. then slide it out however it comes out and look on the end where the power and cable connect, there is a little black or white could be another color, jumper, that is what it is called but you can google it to get a picture of it if needed. Any how that jumper on the correct pins will tell the computer which hdd's it should recognize first and second. If the jumper is on the wrong pin the computer will not recognize your hdd.
