  • Windows is not to find external hard drives, etc.

    Something screwed my PC Windows 7 big time.  It does not recognize one of the four external hard drives USB.  (He did recognize a USB flash drive).  I inserted the original installation CD Windows Home Premium 64 bit.  It does not recognize either.

    I reconnected the hard drive to a USB port and open devices and printers.  The disk was shown, but had the icon of the troubleshooter.  I ran the store.  Firstly, he said that the problem had been solved and that the device was working properly.  When I right click the drive icon, I finally got an error message stating that the driver has not been installed successfully.  (Odddly, the icon of the printer has been replaced by a generic icon, if the printer is working.)

    I don't know if I have a problem Windows or hardware.

    I know I could run the system restore.  I could use Dariks Boot and Nuke to wipe the drive and start again.

    Can someone advise me?


    Your CD-ROM or DVD drive is not recognized by Windows or other programs

    Unplug all devices – speakers, printer, etc...

    Now plug the drive hard - is it recognized?

    Step 1: Try to run Automated Troubleshooting Services and check out what he has to say.

    Step 2: You can also check in the device if Manager disk external drive is listed.

    a. connect the external hard drive to the computer.
    b. to open Device Manager, type devmgmt.msc in the search box start and press ENTER.
    c. check if the external drive is listed.
    d. in Device Manager, expand the hard drive listed in the list of devices.
    e. If the hard disk is listed, right click on it > click Properties.
    (f) in general, under control of device for the message status. After back if there is no error message.
    Step 3: Check to see if the external drive is getting detected in disk management.

    If the hard drive recognized in disk management and if there is no drive letter assigned, I suggest that you right-click on the drive and assign a drive letter and check to see if it helps:
    Step 4: Since external hard drive is detected earlier, I suggest that you try to perform system restore.

    Step 5: Remove and reinstall all USB controllers.

    To remove and reinstall all USB controllers, follow these steps:

    a. clickStart, click run, type sysdm.cpl in theOpen box and then click OK.

    b. click on thehardware tab.

    c. click theDevice Manager button.

    d. expandBus USB controllers.

    e. right click on each device under theBus USB controllers node and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time.

    f. restart the computer and reinstall the USB controllers. Restarting the computer should automatically install the drivers.

    g. plug in the removable USB storage device and perform a test to ensure that the problem is solved.

    Step 6: Install the windows updates and check.

    Step 7: Install the latest chipset driver. For this I recommend you contact the manufacturer of the system.

  • Windows CD can not find installed hard drives

    I have a PC that has windows XP installed and worked well and I have DSL so I kept it updated. It has been updated for the updates. It was a month that it seemed hung on a windows update and I've finally powered down to exit the update mode. After that, he would finally in XP but would not other that the busy when an icon is clicked. I decided to reload XP using the same CD I used originally when I built PC. It will load the drivers to install XP, but when installing windows is selected it says no hard drives found. When booting 2 HARD disks are displayed, but are not detected when you look in the BIOS. I've tried changes in the BIOS as auto detect HDD including default BIOS and not go. I remembered to change a partition using Partition magic 8.0 and decided that might be the problem, so I started in the magic of partition and formatted part C of the HDD in NTFS, but the results are the same. Any suggestion is appreciated. TIA

    Do you mean you see a message like this?

    Setup did not find any hard drives installed in your computer. Make sure that the hard drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any hardware configuration of the drives is correct. This may involve a diagnosis provided by the manufacturer or the installer running. Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3.

    If the disks are not appearing in BIOS, it seems unlikely that XP will be able to see them no more.

    Describe the best you can, your hard disk configuration...  IDE, SATA, SCSI, RAID configurations...

    You build the hardware yourself or is it a system store bought?

    Are you able to determine when the system turns on, the brand and model of your motherboard and the BIOS it is running?

    Without more information, I can only offers these general reflections where to search:

    When you see a message like this, obviously the XP installation starts to load, but then when the installation program needs to go out and find your hard drive is not find the hard drive.  It means not necessarily your hard drive is defective and if it worked before, it's probably still plugged.  It simply means that the installation of XP is not able to find it.

    Looks like you need enter the BIOS on your system by pressing the 'Delete', F2, F10 or F12 key (what the key is good for your system), find the section where the types of hard disks and hard disk interfaces are configured and temporarily change the setting so the XP installation is able to find the hard drive.

    Where to find the accommodation and how to change depends on your system manufacturer and the version of the BIOS, so you end up having to look at her.  If you know your system brand and model, we can probably help you find a job.

    You must locate and change the interface mode to your hard drive in the BIOS so that when installing XP loading, it will be able to locate the hard drive.

    Before making adjustments, you should take note of what are the current BIOS settings, so you can change when you are finished.

    The adjustment varies so here are some examples that I have accumulated:

    The adjustment is done in the BIOS and could be in Integrated Peripherals, Configuration of SATA, SATA Mode device.  After you make the changes, save them and restart your XP installation program.

    If you find that the mode is set on the RAID/SATA mode, change the IDE mode.

    If you find that the mode is set to AHCI, change the ATA mode.

    If you find that the mode is set to AHCI emulation Mode, change the IDE emulation mode.

    If you find that the mode is set to SATA, SATA mode off or change the ATA mode.

    If you find that the mode is set to SATA Native Mode, disable the native SATA Mode.

    If you find that the mode is set on AHCI/RAID Autodetect, change the combination mode.

    If find you the setting that works for you, I would like to know what it is so I can add it to my notes.

    Do, or do not. There is no test.

  • new drive HARD Seagate Barracuda not recognized in the BIOS


    The Inspiron 530 desktop computer BIOS does not recognize my new HARD drive. It's a Seagate Barracuda 500 GB (ST3500413AS). I try to reinstall Vista, but installation can't find a drive with 3.9 GB. Wrong type of drive in the BIOS found, I think that.

    Tried several things, but no results: check the BIOS, but with automatic selection drive only to find a 4 GB (wrong type), updated the BIOS drive (now 1.0.18), tried several drivers with startup etc.

    Think I need a good driver, but on the site Web of Seagate, they say that there is no firmware for this drive.

    can someone help me?

    THX, David

    Thanks for all the support.

    It wasn't a problem with the SATA 3 or something like that, but the HARD drive was missing. There is no other choice. Come back with my HARD drive (and information) to the store and finally got a new. I hope that the other works :)

  • Setup did not find any hard drives installed in my computer

    HI -.

    I own a laptop Presario X1015US and recently bought a new hard drive for her (Western Digital Scorpio Blue PATA 160 GB) but when I insert the operating system CD it goes through the entire process until it gets to a page where it says:

    Family Windows XP Setup

    Setup did not find any hard drives installed in your computer.

    Make sure that the hard disks are turned on and properly connectd to your computer, and that any hardware configuration of the drives is correct. This may involve a diagnosis provided by the manufacturer or the installer running.

    Setup cannot continue.  To quit Setup, press F3.

    I'm not sure of what I am doing wrong and hope someone can help me.  For example -.

    -J' checked the Bios and I do not see where the drive sits - have I missed something?

    -The drive I bought compatible for this model - electronic Fry told me that it is.

    Thank you


    If the bios does not see it, installing XP will ever either.

    Some older laptops have a problem with the largest hard disks (more), I return the drive and see if they have a 120 GB model.

    Can also be that you just got a bad.

  • HP Elitedesk 800 G2 SFF: external hard drive not detected in the BIOS. Only USB Flash drives are detected.

    Hi all

    I received recently 2 new HP desktop computers.

    HP Elitedesk 800 G2 SFF

    HP Elitedesk 800 G2 TWR

    The goal is to test our real W7 x 64 image on these machines and to inject the missing drivers in the image.

    MDT 2010 to create a deployment on a USB hard disk drive.

    This disc of deployment is already used on 16 different models of HP in the company (Elitebook, zBook, EliteDesk) to install our image so I know it works.

    Unfortunately, the two HP Elitedesk 800 G2, I can't start the boot disk but I cannot to USB for a USB key.

    The USB drive is not detected and not proposed in the BIOS Menu of STARTUP.

    Only the internal HD, external USB Flash Disk, DVD and network devices are detected.

    Here's what I already checked or tried:

    • Latest Version of the BIOS installed (2.05)
    • UEFI Boot has been disabled. (not supported by our record of deployment)
    • USB ports are enabled (front and rear).
    • All types of USB devices are allowed in the BIOS
    • The start command has been changed to start with USB devices.
    • Legacy support is active and Secure Boot disabled
    • Delete the keys to secure boot
    • Reset secure by default startup keys
    • This morning, I created a new disk deployment on a USB Flash drive and it works!

    So, it seems that only Flash USB drives are detected.

    I know it is possible to return the flag removalble on a USB device to cheat the system and make it appear as a disk fixed, but I want a simple solution.

    Does anyone know a fix or a workaround for this problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    For those interested in the answer, here's the final results.

    It turns out that the hard 500 GB external drive can be detected if it is fomatted in FAT32.

    It's strange because my 16 GB USB Flash drive formatted in NTFS works very well.

    In any case, I'll create a FAT32 Partition to the Boot MDT files and put my picture (because the file is too big for FAT32 partition) on the secondary partition (formatted as NTFS).

    Thanks to the technical pre-sales team of HP who helped me with this!

  • Hard drive is not recognized in the BIOS - Equium A60

    Hi hope someone can help. I have a Toshiba Equium EA60-173 and the hard drive is not recognized in the BIOS. When I remove the hard drive and put it in another laptop it is detected fine. I also tried another hard drive in the Toshiba and that does not work either. So I suspect the IDE controller has disappeared, but can I do to confirm this? I wish there was an option in the BIOS to force detection. I updated the BIOS but still the same.

    This laptop is only just out of warranty, so if it is the controller would I need to replace the motherboard? Are there other options at my disposal?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Neil,

    Unless there is some physical\problem with the cable/connector hard drive, then it is most likely that you will have a new mainboard for your laptop. I suggest you to contact an authorized service partner and ask them to check your laptop and give you an estimate of the cost of the repair. Then you can try to shop for less expensive alternatives.

    Kind regards
