Iris nor pin recognized after BIOS update

Q: Iris nor pin recognized after BIOS update

Received a BIOS update message and accepted. Once update was complete the laptop could not recognize me Iris, nor original 4 digit pin. Kept telling me to use original Pin, which I did, but to no avail. Please help. Because of where I work, I have to connect to internet manually after start-up, not accesible automatically. Please help!

Hi,
First off I am running Win 7 on a primary SSD, and have 2 1TB HDD in RAID 1 for storage. I have been running this setup fine for a while now.
I recently updated my BIOS (P8P67) using the EZ Flash utility from USB per the following steps:
-Restore defaults
-Flash new BIOS
-Restore defaults
-Reset SATA mode to RAID

Everything went fine, and I verified that my BIOS was seeing the 2 HDD as 1 volume. The Intel RAID controller shows the mirrored volume and 2 drives on bootup, all fine. However, when I get into windows, the RAID volume is not listed in the Intel RST software, device manager or disk management.

I got confusion.

A:RAID 1 not recognized in OS after BIOS update

After going online to Intel and checking that I had the latest drivers for the SATA controller, I decided to check the ASUS website. I downloaded and installed the older driver they had listed there, and during installation it picked up the volume and now all is good. I doubt it had anything to do with the driver version though. I think if I had tried just reinstalling the newest ones the same thing would have happened. Anyone know why I had to reinstall in order for the volume to be picked up?

I still have a fairly severe case of confusion...

Hi,

Last night I plugged into my computer my USB storage device to access some files and up came:

"USB NOT RECOGNIZED"

The computer had been on standby for an hour so I reckon this could be the problem but I tried all the remedies I could find: unplugged, switched off, leave for 5 minutes, reboot, etc. It did not work.

I've tried almost everything. So I went to bed and 8 hours later rebooted and plugged in my USB storage device and lo ah behold! "USB NOT RECOGNIZED"

So I phoned my dad and he said that I had to reinstall the chipset drivers and update the BIOS.

I don't like messing with the BIOS and I know nothing about installing any "chipset drivers".

What should I do?

I have an old PC (Compaq Presario Desktop 7470 ) that i purchased from a yard sale. I removed the old HD and replaced it with a quantum 30gb at Lct 20 HD that had Windows ME OS on it. I booted the pc and it booted fine except windows booted up in 16 bit color. I shut down and booted again. same thing. i shut down a third time and checked BIOS settings, then set them to default. Now BIOS doesn't recognize the HD or the CD-ROM drive. I have checked all connection, reset BIOS, removed the CMOS battery, I literally have tried everything I can think of to get things going on this old PC, but I am at the end of my rope. I will say that scandisk will recognize the HD and says it is OK. I have also taken the HD out and hooked it up to another PC and it boots up Windows ME just fine. I have also tried every jumper setting on the HD and Cd-rom to no avail and the only drive that shows up in BIOS is the 3.5 floppy drive which will boot up a Windows ME Boot Disk. I don't have a problem installing a fresh OS but want and need the PC to recognize the drives before i can do that correct?
I am ready to pull my hair out!! Can anyone please help me?!!!?
 

A:HD recognized by scandisk but HD not recognized by BIOS

probably the booting sequence is wrong due to the fact that you told the BIOS to load the preferred defaults. If you have a standard BIOS:

*go to advanced BIOS settings.... your going to see a big list of options .

<< check this picture for visual example>>
*take a look at the first , second and third boot device and change them to:

1- HDD - 0
2- HDD - 1
3- HDD - 2

Alternate them accordingly.

**probably the reason why your pc booted up at 16 bit the first time , may be
because you haven't installed the drivers for your video card yet.

Hello to the BleepingComputer community,First of all I'm sorry I haven't finished some of the steps from the Preparation Guide. It's because these steps require a reboot (e.g. Step 6: Disable your CD Emulation Software - DeFogger will ask me to reboot the machine), and I have a bad feeling about the question if it is safe to reboot in my situation: I'm not sure if I have a type of malware which is ready to infect the BIOS - if it is so, then it could infect it much easier during the reboot process.- If there is a good way to find out what is the problem (and fix the BIOS threat part if it really is present) without rebooting / shutting down this PC, or at least without booting from this hard drive (which I feel is probably infected), then please tell me what should I do.- If you know a place / forum where I can get a specialized help for this (seemingly BIOS-malware related) situation, please tell me where I could go.- If there is no way to move forward, I'll go ahead and risk the reboot, and follow the other steps (steps 6 to 10) in the Preparation Guide, no problem.I kindly ask you to please read below the details of the problem as it occured to me, and the things I have tried so far.The PC is AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core BE-2350 2.1GHz, Motherboard Biostar TA690G AM2 (with AWARD BIOS), 4GB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, and an ASUS EAH4870 card added a few years ago.It's with WinXP SP3, AVG Free 2012, (standard) Windows Firewall, and it's behind a router.I ...

My Samsung series 3 laptop has been sending out popup messages telling me I need a bios update, I go to the Samsung software update site and this bios update has been failing, I have made several calls and chats to techs at Samsung who tell me to do what I have already done, they tell to ask for tier 2 tech, who can go in my computer and fix it , When I finally got a tier 2 tech, they told me the same thing, I told him what I had been told about him and what he could do, He said, is it working , I said yes, but settings on computer change on their own,like wifi turns itself on and that concerns me. Anyway, He said that it didn't need a bios update,even the Samsung website said this computer needed a bios update. I posted this on hardware,firmware concerns, and they told me to post here, I was going to go to a site ,that had a download that checked drivers, I was told to stay away from this.

Didn't see my issue covered in the forums.

Anywho....
I recently built a new machine, installed a new SATA HDD with windows and everything runs great. Tried to connect my old IDE E drive after installation to avoid any unnecessary formating. BIOS does not even recognize the drive. Checked cables, tried every possible jumper combo (see http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc...p.php?p_faqid=702&p_created=1037222373#jumper)

I originally had this connected through an IDE to SATA converter but it was not recognized then. Tried the alternate jumper adaptations and the only one that showed up was a slave drive on IDE that had zero space and no name, still did not boot or show up in windows.

Any suggestions?

On an Asus Desktop M32AD. At boot, the F1, CPU fan error screen. I threw a new power supply and a gtx 950 in there. No problem. But I reconnected the hdd and DVD drive backwards in the 3/6GBS ports or whatever and my only hdd was showing up as removable media in the notification area. So I fixed that and now I get a CPU fan error at boot and my BIOS doesn't recognize the cpu fan even though it runs and everything is connected properly. I can just disable the CPU fan monitoring in the BIOS, but that's pretty weak. Any idea of what's going on here? Tons of threads, but nothing of value to me.This is a new computer, all new parts, putting the GPU and Power supply was easy, and there has been no issue with those and I've connected everything properly. I keep checking and trying to find out what the deal is. Really don't feel like sending my computer in. I'd buy another fan if any of you think that would work.

A:CPU Fan not recognized by BIOS.

I recently had a similar problem with a Compaq Desktop running Vista that had a noisy CPU fan. I found out that the computer required the 4-pin [conductor] fan, wouldn't work properly with a 3-pin fan although the fan did operate. Apparently it's all about the signals back to the motherboard about the fan being at the right speed, the CPU is properly cooled, etc.

Okay, first let me mark down my system:
AMD64 3000+
Crosair 512 MB DDR PC3200
Sapphire Radeon 9800xt
Asus K8V deluxe
HDD1: Hitachi 120gb S-ata
HDD2: Maxtor Diamond Max Plus 9 (80gb) IDE <= trouble maker!.

Okay, here is the problem. I just bought a new system and want to move all my files from the old on to the new one. The old one will still be used so it cannot be formatted. I plug it in (jumper still set to master) and it boots from the IDE disk (winxp pro), now I don't want this, I want it to boot from the s-ata disk, on which my configured Windows XP pro is installed.

So I change the settings of the IDE disk to slave. It boots from the S-ATA disk (whoohoo) but fails to see it in windows/bios (DOH!). What am I doing wrong and what can fix it.

Confused? So am I.

Back to the table of knowledge again! Think I have two problems, maybe one is causing the other? Hard drive is not being recognized...on startup I get "inaccessible boot device". I go into bios and see there is nothing listed for a primary HD and also note that it also says "CMOS battery low" and "CMOS memory size wrong". The PC has been sitting in the attic for about three months since my son gave up on the HD issue but ol' computer impaired here thought I would give it a try. Would sitting with no power cause the battery to drain off?

MOBO is an ECS(?) K7S5A
HD is one that was left over from some other unit. My son said I had to change HD's so's not to loose his info on the original. HD is good cause I put it as slave in my PC and it worked fine. Not sure how much memory installed but the stick is in the DDR slot.

I know..kinda sporadic info but maybe can give someone as idea of whats wrong?

Thanks for viewing this thread!

Hello all,

I had two machines. A dell and an Hp which I received from an office. The hp was more up to date. The dell had my software on it. I am fairly facile with hardware so I opened the case and tried to add the dell HD to a what appeared to be an extra bay below the Hp Hard drive.

I adjusted the jumpers to CS and poof, nothing. So, I took out (disconnected) the dell drive. Then I had the Hp drive up and running in windows internet ready etc...Well, so I figure time to try the other hard drive again.

No dice. It won't boot and seems only to want to recognize the older HD as Primary master. I tried switching the cable order -- nada. I tried changin the jumpers to master/slave appropriately. Nothing. So, I decided to just go back to barebones.

Well, now, it's not even recognizing the HP drive. "There is no boot drive present...please insert boot disk or drive..." It is not recognized in BIOS at all. Even with P/P OS turned off. If I disconnect the harddrive, I can get the windows repair CD to boot, but since it doesn't recognize the harddrive that's somewhat moot.

My next attempt will be to download maxtor's diagnostic test and see if it will find and test the drive. If not, maybe somehow it got screwed up. Otherwise I am out of options besides, replace that drive.

Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated. B/C as of now I have 2 machines that both worked in front of me, however both of the are just glorified paper weig... Read more

Hello-

I am having trouble trying to figure out why this is happening to my system. I have four HDs connected to my machine. I have two of them connected to a Promise ATA100 PCI card, and the other two are connected to the Primary and Secondary IDE controller connections on my MB. When I boot up my system, all four drives are detected by BIOS. When I get into Windows XP Pro (SP2), only three of the drives show up under the My Computer screen. I have rebooted several times, and sometimes, the fourth drive does show up in WinXP. I have run chkdsk /f on the problem drive, and it comes back as clean.

Can anyone speculate as to why the HD is not detected correctly every time?

Thanks in advance.

Update requires re-start.

If the message appears even though you rebooted, please perform following procedure:

Open AVG Control Center and double-click the Update Manager component. There should be the following settings:
Update immediately
(If computer restart is required)
- Require confirmation from the user
If your settings are any different, please modify them to these values.

Then in AVG Control Center highlight the Update Manager component (click on it once). Push the Settings button and switch to the Advanced tab.
Push Delete update temporary files button and confirm with OK.
Please check if there is WAIT4SD file present in the AVG program folder (C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG7 by default). If there is a file with such name, delete it.
Reboot your computer.
Now please try to update again.
If the problem still persists, please send us e-mail directly from AVG: AVG -> Information -> Technical Support by E-Mail. This email will contain information about your system and about AVG installed on your computer.

A:HDD is not recognized by Bios and Windows

Hello Raeion. Welcome to the forum.

When the hard drive is not recognized in the BIOS it means that either the drive is defective or there is a connectivity problem.

The first thing to double check is connectivity. This is how I would proceed:
(Please use proper static precautions!)
Disconnect the hard drive (I assume there is just one) - power and data cables.
Boot the machine and go into the BIOS settings > set SATA mode to AHCI and leave it there.
Reboot the machine, check the BIOS again. Should be in AHCI mode and you should see the DVD drive listed on it's port.
Shut down and carefully connect the hard drive again. Recheck the data cable connection to the motherboard.
Start up, go into BIOS settings and see if the hard drive is listed (when you start up, listen for the drive to spin up)
If not listed, shut down and try a different SATA port on the motherboard
If still not recognized, try a different data cable (the one on the DVD drive is known good).
Let us know what you find.

EDIT:
If you had this machine built for you then you may want to just take it back and get the technicians to fix the issue. Don't leave the store until you can see the drive recognized in BIOS.
If you were to damage something doing your own work you might void any warranty.

A:HDD not recognized, new bios upgrade?

Answer Match 47.04%

Hello,

I am trying to upgrade a hard drive on a desktop pc (Advent T9306 - Motherboard: MS 7091 Ver:2). The problem is the drive is recognized in BIOS, but not when trying to perform a fresh install of either Windows 7, or XP. Both programmes tell me no HDD is detected.

So basically, the computer works no problem at all until I try to plug in one of my sata 1tb HDD's. One of them is Hitachi, the other is made by Samsung. Both 1tb, both sata. The Samsung is brand new out of the box.

These 1tb drives work in my other desktop pc no problem.

Now, when I plug one of my many old sata 40/60gb HDD's into the machine it recognizes them completely!?

Could this be that the computer does not recognize drives of this size as it is old? I have tried changing all settings in BIOS with no joy. I have even installed XP on one of the drives using another PC, then plugging it into the problem computer. It starts to load XP then restarts, and continues in a loop.

Please help as I have wasted my weekend off work on this!

Many thanks.

When I let it sit for around 15 or so minutes it says "Cannot find bootable drive." or something like that. What is odd though is that the first time it happened I just restarted my computer and it let it go. The next time it took four reboots to load, then six, and so on. I reset the bios by shorting the jumpers and it fixed the problem for a bit, but it is back now. Any ideas?

Have XP v. 5.1 build 2600 running on P IV 2.53 with 2GB ram on Intel D845PEBT2, 80 GB HHD IDE, 500 GB SATA and 400 GB Firewire External. I am trying to install a new Seagate Barracuda 1TB Internal and it is not recognized by the bios. I have tried multiple SATA cables and tried downgrading with the HDD jumper. My SATA ports are onboard the MB. Have tried removing all drives and trying only the new drive and it's still is not recognized. Any Suggestions?

A:1TB Barracuda not recognized by BIOS

The typical solution is to update the BIOS if a new version is available. Until the BIOS can recognize the HDD, Windows cannot access it. The Seagate tools disc may have a software workaround. Have you tried running the Seatools application? It may work from within Windows, if not, you could boot from the CD.

And this post should likely be in the hard drive forum.

First thing to do check to see is the ide cable is bad try another if so, make sure your hard drive is attached to the master not the slave end of the cable, also if you have another hard drive swap that out to see if your seagate HD is good. be patient more is on the way.

Hello

I have 500gig seagate drive that will not show up in BIOS
Tried on 3 different motherboards
Its a SATA drive

Does anyone know of any good utility programs that will scan the SATA controllers in an attempt to locate this drive
the drive was working yesterday without issue
no power surges etc..... just decided to not work during a update/reboot of system.

I have tried some utilities but without it appearing in BIOS, I guess there is not a whole lot I can do
Was hoping someone may know of a utility that will search the SATA controller for anything connected to it etc..

Thanks

So I unplugged the Drive to spot out some problem with windows not installing correctly and now the Drive isn't being show in the Bios or on boot, it has power cause it opens the tray correctly and I tried resetting the bios to defaults.

How do I fix this. And I'm in the process of reinstalling Windows so I'm limited in what things I can do.

I have Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500 GB, it's maybe about 6 months old. It was working fine this morning, but after a power outage (behind surge protector) and a reboot, I got an error "hal.dll" is missing. So I went to work and looked it up and saw that IE 8 might be the culprit. So when I got home, I started to go through the process of recreating the boot.ini file that I thought was destroyed by IE 8.

Well come to look closer, I couldn't even find the drive in the BIOS. My secondary HDD was there, but not the one I was looking for. I tried in 3 other comps, and no dice, nothing shows up. The platters were spinning, but it's almost as if the firmware isn't responding or the driver for the drive, or something.

The data isn't so important that I'm willing to pay $1000's of dollars to get it back, but I would like to know if this is something anyone has experienced, a HDD to just die with no wawrning or anything. Also, if I get a HDD witht he same firmware etc, is it possible to just switch the electronic part, my pc board part, and possible have it work, just throwing out ideas.

Any comments or thoughts appreciated, thanks!

Hi-

I receive voluminous scanned PDF files that I would like to highlight in yellow for reference, highlight in black to redact, and otherwise edit the files sent to me. My computer is Windows Vista, using AcrobatX and I recently purchased RIPro12 for editing purposes.

I am able to open the PDF file in IRIS but when I "convert" the file (ie- save it as "image to text" file, or any other type of file for that matter), I am unable to do what I want other than to simply add text using the "comment" function in AcrobatX . IRIS has a "recognize and save" function that gives a few options to convert PDF files such as save as "Reader to Image to Text", save as "Reader to Image", and "Text to Image".

I think that I understand that the PDF document as I receive it is an image file that must be converted to some sort of text file for me to edit the document as I would like to. I've tried each of the options for Adobe as well as Word and Text files (which show a blank page) but I can't seem to get it to work. Obviously, I am doing something wrong.

Any help working this out is appreciated. Thanks

I was reading The review for the Haswell iris pro when I realized something:






Quote:
There’s only a single size of eDRAM offered this generation: 128MB. Since it’s a cache and not a buffer (and a giant one at that), Intel found that hit rate rarely dropped below 95%. It turns out that for current workloads, Intel didn’t see much benefit beyond a 32MB eDRAM however it wanted the design to be future proof. Intel doubled the size to deal with any increases in game complexity, and doubled it again just to be sure. I believe the exact wording Intel’s Tom Piazza used during his explanation of why 128MB was “go big or go home”. It’s very rare that we see Intel be so liberal with die area, which makes me think this 128MB design is going to stick around for a while.


(page 3, "Addressing the memory bandwidth problem")

I immediately did some looking around:
System requirements for Windows XP operating systems At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)

Frequently Asked Questions - DSL Wiki (system requirements): 16 MBs RAM (recommended 64MBs)

You can practically run an OS without any ram installed! Aside from the fact that it would be a waste of GT3 graphics.

However, if Intel was to pair the 128MB eDRAM with a cheap Atom they could possibly kill off the Arduino!

Remarkable. I know of a few linux distros that can run in that space with a graphical UI.
And I have the sneaking suspicion that x86 Android is in that list.

I have an Iris Pen II pencil scanner that I purchased maybe 5 or 6 yrs ago. It worked quite well on my computer running windows xp and I was able scan and copy into word processing and similar applications. That computer was replaced with one having Vista. If I was able to load the program (could on 1 machine, couldn't on another), it worked only in its little test screen but not in any real applications. I now have gateway computer running win 7 home premium. I was able to install the program from the disc but when I plug the scanner into the computer, the program tells me it does not detect the scanner.

I currently have 2 SATA hard disks connected, then 1IDE hard disk on blue IDE slot and 2 IDE cdroms on the other IDE slot. I also have two other external drives each connected to a USB port.

The problem is that the IDE hard disk is not being recognised in BIOS, when I try to switch some settings in the BIOS IDE configuration I have managed to get it recognised but then the cdroms are not recognised, how can I get them all recognised?

Another problem I have is with the external drives. If I switch them on before the computer boots up the POST will hang, so I have to leave them off until the POST ends and switch them on while windows loads so they get recognised by windows with all their sharing settings intact. Is there a way to eliminate this annoying problem?

Thanks

The problem is pretty much sum'd up in the title. I have a 1TB Western Digital Blue Caviar sata HDD hooked up to the motherboard. A while back, when I went to go boot up the PC, the HDD busy light just stayed solid, and windows 7 took a lot longer than usual to load. When it does, I can't use the hard drive. I have tried to rescan for it in disk management and exhausted all most all the fixes I can find in threads on the net.

I know it's not a totally dead disk, because a couple times the C: drive (boot drive) automatically ran CHKDSK, it seemed to repair 1 or 2 small files, a file structure, or something, and then the D drive would return for a couple days before the problem returned.

I replaced the Sata cable with a new one, it started working again, but only for a few days. I'm kind of baffled on this one. Usually I figure these things out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Have a good day.

This has me stumped. I have a old dell box for the kids (4300) with bios flashed to A06. I just added a second 40 gig Maxtor hdd for them as a slave on the primary controller (hooked up with 80 pin IDE cables). When I do this, in the bios under primary controller device 1 it reads the size of the hdd but not the model. Same for device 2 on primary controller--size with no model. If I try to install windows xp it gives me an error that windows can't find any hdds on the computer.

Here is where it gets weird. I have an old 30 gig samsung drive I can hook up as slave or master on the primary controller in conjunction with either maxtor and they work fine--Bios and windows xp detects them at correct size and correct drive. If I hook either maxtor up alone as master on the primary controller or secondary controller, they work fine. If I hook each maxtor 40 gig hdd up as master on primary controller and secondary controller with cdrom and dvdrom slaved to each, they work.

So what the hell? Has anyone ever had anything happen like this before? I can think of no reason why 2 hdds by the same manufacture shouldn't work together on the same controller when they work with a hdd from a different manufacture or with different devices.

In other words I'm saying:

Primary controller
Master--Maxtor hdd-1
Slave--Maxtor hdd-2
Secondary controller
Master--CDRW
Slave--DVDrom

Anyone had similar issues/know what the problem could be? =(

There are 3 other SATA Hard Drives also plugged in (That work fine). I've tried switching around where they are plugged in (1, 2, 3, 4) but nothing happens. It just gets stuck up in POST when it gets to the Optical Drive.
So if it's plugged into SATA 2, it will see the drive in SATA 1, etc. BUT if the drive is plugged into SATA 1 it finds nothing.
Hope all of that made sense.
EDIT: SATA is setup as follows;
OnChiP SATA Channel - Enabled
OnChip SATA Type - IDE (With options for RAID and AHCI)
Also forgot to mention there is another Hard Drive plugged in through IDE. Not sure if that would matter. (unplugged IDE HD and still nothing)

And the Blu-Ray drive is plugged into.

If this question has already been addressed, I apologize and would appreciate being pointed in the direction of the solution. I searched a bit before posting this, but I may have overlooked something.

I had an 80gb maxtor IDE hard drive hooked up as the slave on a friend's system. I guess the power supply's fan went out when I was away and caused the system to overheat and shut down. When I restarted (after a couple of hours), everything loaded up fine (BIOS recognized all drives and whatnot), except that windows (xp home, sp2) took about 3 times as long to load, and the maxtor doesn't show up in 'My Computer' or in 'Disk Management.'

I tried moving it to my system (xp pro, sp2) and again the BIOS recognized the drive as being the slave, but windows took about 3 times as long as normal to load, and then there was no slave drive in 'My Computer' or 'Disk Management' (note: I did check all the jumper settings before doing this).

I am just about resigned to getting data recovery software, but I don't understand why the BIOS would be able to see the drive when windows cannot, or why it would cause windows to load so much more slowly. Any help or guidance that could be provided would be most appreciated. Also, if I can provide any more information, please do not hesitate to let me know. Thanks.

Hello.

My HP Pavillion dv6000 laptop failed on me last summer, well.. the HDD failed, I was unable to access the computer at all, black screen saying failure.

Anyways, I want to use my laptop again so I purchased a brand new Western Digital Blue HDD 320GB from Tigerdirect this afternoon.
I got home, took out the old one, popped the new one in expecting everything to go smoothly.

I plugged in my USB to install Windows 7 on, I get to the page where you choose the partition to install Windows 7 and to come to my surprise, there was nothing there. Instantly my heart fell, I'm like you've gotta be kidding me.. Drove an hour and a half through busy humid traffic to get this...?

I checked the BIOS and it doesn't appear to be there.. I looked at HP's website and I can't find any new BIOS updates.. I'm trying to use "Mini-Tool Partition Wizard" but it's giving me some stupid error saying "ERROR: This bootable CD does not support Windows Server." I have no clue what that means... I've already tried reburning it a few times. I'm ****ing frustrated.

I don't know what to do..

A:Brand New Harddrive not being recognized in BIOS.

Can you try the hard disk on another PC? desktops can use them as well. You can connect it without rebooting too. First data cable then power cable.

Also check that the BIOS didn't disable sata (some do have the option of disabling the SATA controller and/or sata port, some don't, look in the page about hard drive info and try to change the "not installed" field if possible).

For a bootable partition manager I use a trusty linux USB drive, the tools are all packed in PartedMagic bootable disk.

I took out their HDD and attached it as a external to my computer. I then backed up all their files (the drive appears to be working fine.) not being sure what the issue was I decided to reformat the drive and re install a clean version of win 7.

After finally getting the drive completely erased I reformatted as NTFS and installed it back into the computer. At this point The bios did not recognize any HDDs or optical drives (I had the win 7 disk in the DVD drive).

I created a bootable USB win 7 disk which the computer did recognize and initiated set up. At this point the set up process does not recognize any drives.

Not sure what to do to get it to recognize the drive. Any advise is appreciate. My initial thoughts are formatted incorrectly.

Thanks,

Next test the HD using maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, followed by Disk Check run from installer command line accessed by Shift + F10 at first screen after booting. Then use diagnostics CD Quick Wipe function to run Diskpart Clean Command, or run it from installer Command Line.

And who? I mean are you sure that this person was right?
From my point of few there is no reason why early BIOS version should recognize the SSD drive and the newest BIOS version doesn’t…

But BIOS v1.2 for Satellite L50-B-2C8 PSKTQE series does not exists… the v2.0 (at this time) is the latest version and older BIOS versions are not available for this series.

Furthermore I guess you will need slimply check different SSD drive… it could be possible that other SSD drive would be recongized properly.

By the way: I’m owner of Evo 850 SSD drive and as far as I can remember I had to update the SSD drive firmware to use it properly in connection with my other notebook (not Toshiba unit)

I had USB 3.0 problems on my custom built (by me) Recording Studio PC. The front panel USB 3.0 ports stopped working. I tried many things, including reseating the USB 3.0 connector on the motherboard and trying all USB 3.0 ports on the motherboard (it has 3 separate front panel USB 3.0 connections) and finally gave up. USB 3.0 wasn't a major issue for me but after the motherboard developed another problem I decided to send it back for warranty repair. The repaired board, which looks like a new board as there is no visible traces of any repair, now has working USB 3.0.

Check the connection to the motherboard, in case it has come loose (I've had that one time). If that is not the problem, the motherboard will have to be repaired/replaced.

Removing and reinstalling the motherboard is a hassle, but if USB 3.0 is something you need and the board is still under warranty, consider this option. Contact the motherboard vendor.

It also shows up as dynamic. Tried using Partition wizard, but it shows that the disk is bad, so i tried converting it from dynamic to basic, but it fails to do so. I have files on it that I cannot lose, any suggestions?

EDIT: Fixed by itself, it now appears in the disk management.

You can use Macrium ( free) to create the image.

http://www.majorgeeks.com/content/pa...2270j1060538j7
Be careful when downloading to always click "custom" and decline any of the crap it wants to add - i.e. changing search engines, home page, etc.

Make a boot cd( instructions on main page) and also after creating the image, do a Verify.

I do this by clicking Restore and browsing for the created image and you will see a link to Verify.

Put the image on a different internal hdd and if you have an external hdd, put one there as well.

Do an image backup periodically, (I do it once a week or after any major changes).

This will prevent loss of your files if you have a virus,corruption, etc.

Hi,

I installed an old 160GB Seagate Barracuda into my Win7Pro64 machine for some extra storage room. At first it worked fine. I cleaned it out and did a quick format in Windows.

Now Windows does recognize it at all. I see it in the BIOS but it won't show up in Windows.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Hi,

I got a weird thing going on and have NO clue whats the cause.


I want to install win7 on a clean drive.... but I cant even get to the install options, because the drive is not recognized when i turn on the machine. It stalls, even before I can get into the BIOS settings.

I need to manuallly disconnect the drive > then change back to IDE mode inside the bios and now I am able to install Windows.

The funny thing... I have a backup image of a running WIN7 installation and if I copy it onto the exactly same drive it runs without problems in AHCI mode



does anyone have an idea what might cause the problem?

another weird thing.... i already installed win7 in IDE mode and thought that maybe later, once the installation is done i could switch back to AHCI... well, same thing.... once ahci mode was enabled in the bios, the drive was not recognized anymore.
i also tried to install the chipset drivers from within windows and got a "the system does not meet the minumum requirements." after searching a solution for this problem i found out that it wont install until i have ahci mode active.... ugh.... ; )

btw: its a gigabyte ga p35 ds4
and a WD Velociraptor drive

A:HD not recognized at all if AHCI enabled in bios - please help -

There are 6 SATA ports on the "South Bridge" controller (Orange ports). There are 2 SATA ports on the "Gigabyte SATA 2 Chip" controller (Purple ports). The orange ports use the generic Intel SATA/RAID drivers.

Which port do you have the hard drive connected to? Have you tried it in one of the the other ports?

That motherboard has a higher than normal number of complaints on Newegg. It could be defective.

Yesterday while watching movie on my PC it appeared as black on the screen and stopped working. After restarting the PC it was not responding as the BIOS was unable to recognize the hard disk. It creates an unusual sound while BIOS searches drives.

2. I also tried to boot using Ubuntu live CD but failed to find my HD on it.

Try the freezer trick. Place your hard drive in zip lock freezer bag to protect it from moisture and freeze it overnight (or a few hours at least). Quickly hook up the frozen hard drive and try to boot from it. If it works, be prepared to copy your important data as soon as possible before the hard drive warms up too much. This is not a permanent fix but it may work long enough to save your data.

I have replaced the original HDD and installed a new SSD which works fine.
Installed the W7Pro and all updates.

I do not use my CD-Writer so I replaced the CD-drive and installed a caddy with my old HDD to have more diskspace.

When I boot my laptop I see a message CD-ROM ERROR.
In device manager the caddy and or the HDD are not shown.

I tried to change settings in the BIOS (according Toshiba utility the latest version) but even in the Bios is no information about the present SSD or the installed HDD. (or the CD-Drive when I re-install this drive again)

What is wrong here? Do I need an updated BIOS that allows the 2nd HDD?
Or do I overlook a setting somewhere?

NB In the BIOS the HDD drive settingis according ACPI, in the listing below it is mentioned as IDE device.
When I enter in the BIOS IDE in stead of ACPI I still see the CD-ROM ERROR during boot and after this message the screen is blue and no further activity.

As far as I know Toshiba doesn't offer such caddy for your notebook model so I presume you use some third part product. Is that correct?
I mean if this is not working correctly it is not Toshiba related issue. Caddy manufacturer must offer support and explanations.

As far as I know BIOS update has nothing to do with it. It is compatibility problem I think.

Just bought the MAXTOR SATA 300GB HDD w/16MB cache [6B300S0] and my BIOS will not detect it @ all!

MOBO: ASUS P4P800 Deluxe

I am already running [without any problems] a MAXTOR SATA 120GB hdd [6Y120M0] connected on SATA1 socket.

Attempt #1:Tried to plug in the 300GB drive to the SATA2 socket [as a 2nd drive].
Result #1: BIOS does not detect ANY drive, not even the original 120GB drive.

Attempt #2: Tried to plug in the 300GB drive on its' own instead of the 120GB drive to SATA1 socket.
Result #2: Could not even enter BIOS setup, PC froze after memory count.

Furthermore, I even held the drive in my hand with only the power cable hooked up to it, fired up the machine and felt it spinning, so I doubt it's a power issue. Tested the SATA data cable with the original drive and works fine.

I also updated the BIOS to the latest version to no avail.

MAXTOR told me to try their POWERMAX software on the drive, I don't know how it will detect it but will give it a go.

Open to suggestions.

Cheers.
 

A:MAXTOR SATA 300GB HD not recognized by BIOS...

I've had to use the powermax software to install maxtor drives before.

Also, you may want to make sure that the primary device on the sata channel is set to auto in the bios. If it has previous, or no drive detection information it may not autodetect.

I have a Dell Optiplex GX280 SD. When I first purchased the PC it came with a CD-ROM drive and Windows XP Professional pre-installed. A few months after purchasing the computer I decided to upgrade my CD-ROM to a DVD-RW/CD-RW. I purchased a brand new DVD-RW/CD-RW drive and replaced my CD-ROM with it. Everything worked well, I was able to play CD's, burn movies, etc. A month later I decided to upgrade my Windows XP with Windows Vista Home Premium. I purchased the DVD and installed it with no problems. My DVD-RW drive worked fine, even after installing Windows Vista.

Then, a week or two later I tried playing a CD; I opened my DVD-RW/CD-RW tray, placed the CD inside, then closed it. Usually when I place a CD into my DVD-RW/CD-RW drive and close it a window pops up asking me what I want to do, however, this time it didn't. I went to My Computer and noticed that there was no DVD drive icon under Devices and Removable Storage. I tried restarting my computer in hope that it would reappear but it didn't.

A:DVD drive not being recognized by neither BIOS nor OS (Windows Vista)

Hi lechevarria89,

Is the drive SATA or IDE? You've established that it is getting power to the driver, but not the information. And since it is not showing in BIOS, but was previously. We start looking at the physical information connector. SATA cables quite often fail, plus make sure the cable isn't bent at a 90 degree angle, with SATA the rule of thumb is "Mess is good!"

I have a brand new Foxconn A7GM-S 2.0 motherboad which seems to be unable to recognize my two SATA hard disks. I have ensured that the power connectors and SATA cables are snug, and have tried each pair of the six SATA slots on the motherboard. I also don't hear either hard disk powering up upon boot.

This board is a replacement for my older motherboard, which died rather suddenly. Both hard disks were connected to the old motherboard at the time of its failure, which leads me to wonder if the disks are damaged beyond repair. Do motherboard failures generally affect connected hard disks? Or is my new motherboard defective?

Specs:
CPU = AMD Athlon 64 X2 5050e
Motherboard = Foxconn A7GM-S 2.0 (BIOS version 8.00.14)

I have a Rosewill RC-215 PCI SATA card with an Asus SATA DVD/CD Rom drive hooked up to one of the SATA ports. When I boot up, the motherboard (Asus P4PE) bios doesn't recognize my DVD drive(Asus DRW-24B1ST) so I can't boot up from a repair CD/DVD disk. But once I'm in Win2000, the DVD drive (Asus DRW-24B1ST) is recognized and usable. And it shows up in My Computer, and Device Manager.

I need some advice so I can figure out how to be able to boot up from a DVD/CD when I need to.
 

A:DVD/CD ROM not recognized by bios, but works after Win2000 starts

You may have to spend a few bucks and get a PATA/IDE DVD drive. You have drivers for the SATA card loaded after 2000 boots, so that is why it works.

Have a look through your BIOS and see if there is any option that supports your SATA card. I remember this back on the A7V boards with the Promise ATA 100 controller vs the 33/66 that was 'included' with the motherboard.

I assume you have looked for that option in the BIOS. If you have, and it doesn't exist, I think you will have to pick up a non SATA drive.

Also, I think its pretty cool that someone is still running 2k.

Hi,

I've built an 128gb Samsung (830 Series) SSD into my Acer RL70 Nettop. It was empty and when I tried to boot the nettop there was only the message "ERROR: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed". Then I connected the SSD to another computer and installed windows on it and it worked on that PC. When I put it pack into the Nettop i got the same error again. In the Bios, it shows the SSD correctly.

I also tried booting Windows or any recovery tool from a memory stick, but the error message appears before anyting else can load. The memory Stick is shown correctly in the bios and also it works with other computers.
I've tried the options IDE and AHCI as well as different booting priorities.

I don't know what else to try. If the memory stick can't boot, shouldn't it be a problem within the bios then?

Computer has been starting erratically for awhile. Sometimes it will start., other times it fails and says "HARD DISK NOT FOUND..."

I think the hard drive it finished. With power on I do not feel that 'gyro' effect you normally feel from spinning platters in a good drive.

So I tried a brand new 80GB hard drive. After numerous reboots the BIOS finally recognized it. I was then able to install WinXP. When installation was complete, I did a few Windows updates. Now I'm getting "HARD DISK NOT FOUND..." message again.

Thinking the motherboard battery could be failing, I tried a new one. Made no difference.

I tried new IDE cables. Made no difference.

I set BIOS settings all to default settings. Made no difference. Tried optimized settings. Same thing.

Hi all,

I know this is similar to at least one recent thread, but different enough to post.
I am upgrading my sister's machine from a 3.2Gb WD Caviar to a 40Gb Seagate U Series 5 drive, ST348023 from memory, ATA100.
The machine is running a K62 266, not sure of the Mobo, but obviously supports the AMD chip.
From what I have been able to glean from the Seagate site, this drive should be backwards compatible with any IDE connector, but when I stick it in, with the BIOS set to auto-detect all drives, the machine halts trying to detect the Seagate drive, although it will let me Ctrl-Alt-Del and also press Del to get into CMOS setup.
I have tried it as Primary Master, and as Primary Slave, both with the other HD on the same cable, and without it in at all.
Seagate's disk tools are able to detect that it is there, even when not setup in the BIOS. Seagate's disk wizard, which is an excellent tool for installing a new drive, told me that all I had to do was set BIOS settings to auto for that drive, and all would be rosy. It looks at what drive you have, what BIOS you have, and gives you instructions to suit. The documentation tells me that if the BIOS supports LBA and Large disk types, then all should be fine - it does.

Can anyone give me any ideas on what's going on? I have installed quite a number of hard drives in the past, but never come across anything like this.

Hi All,

I have an issue with the internal SATA HDD in my Pavilion dm4t laptop (PR #: XQ131AAR). The drive is working, when connecting via external USB enclosure is recognized by the PC, can read/write data, format partitions etc? When plugged in as internal HDD of the laptop, BIOS does not recognize it. When booting from Windows Installation Disk, the drive (and its partitions) are recognized, but I get the following message when trying to select a partition to proceed with Windows install:

Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer?s hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk?s controller is enabled in the computer?s BIOS menu.

Used external USB enclosure again, connected to a working PC and using TestDisk, I deleted the partition table (by zero writing it several times), then created a new MBR. When connecting back as internal drive, it is now recognized by BIOS and in the Windows installation screen, I can actually select a partition on the drive to install Windows on; the installation actually runs, but as soon as I get to the point of having to restart the PC during the installation process, upon restart the drive is not recognized anymore?

When I remove it, and repeat the same steps with TestDisk, it once again works, can start Windows installation, but it fails upon restart.

Hey all,
I had 3 hard drives connected to my pc with 1 IDE for booting windows and the other and the other 2(SATA and IDE) for storage. I did a reinstall of windows and now my IDE storage drive is not recognized by windows. I looked at the hard drives under computer management but it does not appear at all. It does show up in the bios though. I checked the jumper setting and even tried connecting via usb with an external enclosure. With the enclosure it just found the hardware but no drive on 2 different computers.

Recovering the information on the drive is ideal, but not necessary. That said, does anyone have any idea how to fix this? If I do not find a solution, is there any way to format the hard drive without windows? I thought about installing a different OS on another computer just to format the drive but was not sure if this would work or if there was an easier way.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Hard Drive recognized by bios, but not windows

If you are using Vista/XP/Server 2003 or Seven, you can look in Disk Management.

Go to computer management (right-click computer then Manage)

On the left of the window, select Disk Management.

This will show not just the drives, but also the partitions on the drives.

It may be that the drive has become corrupt or is formatted in a way that Windows does not understand. Alternatively, it may just need to be assigned a drive letter.

I noticed that sometime after I installed windows 7 that my dvd optical drive was not showing up. I have done a lot of research on the matter and have yet to find a working solution. I checked my BIOS and the drive is not listed there, but I'm pretty sure it is properly connected. I have an HP Pavillion dv6000, so the drive just plugs into the slot directed connected to the motherboard, and can be removed by unscrewing a single screw. When the laptop is on I am able to open the drive, and it lights up, so I know it is getting power... I have tried everything under the sun to fix the problem - checking/cleaning the connection port, deleting the upperfilters value from the registry (which many people have said worked for them, however for me it only gave me an warning message in itunes telling me the registry files for burning/importing cd's was missing), reinstalling gear drivers, and running the microsoft fixit programs (they just tell me they can't find the drive or that it isn't there - thanks microsoft...). Nothing has worked, and it's driving me crazy not being able to use my dvd drive. Has anyone had this problem to the same degree as me?/found a solution to it?

A:DVD Optical Drive Not Recognized in Windows or BIOS

Of the BIOS cannot see it, no software fix will help including other drivers. It is probably a connection problem. If the disk works, then the mobo controller is OK because the optical drive uses the same controller in the chipset.

Hi everyone,

I have a Seagate ST320430A 20.4 GB ultra ata drive that will spin up but is not being recognized in either of two systems. The drive came out of a pc that was dying and I just rebuilt. I thought I had copied all the files I needed off of this drive. But now have figured out that of all the things for me to forget.... I didn't get the outlook.pst file. UGGG!!!

I've called a couple of local computer shops. The conscensus is that if it spins up but isn't recognized then the controller card on the drive is probably bad. If that is the case I'm being told that there's no hope.

1. Is it true that there's no hope if the controller card is bad?

2. What are the chances of me taking this apart and replacing the controller card from an identical drive?

3. I think I've set all the jumpers correctly for the drive. I can't remember if jumpers will prevent it from being recognized in the bios. I think I've tried all of the options though...

Thanks!
 

A:Solved: Seagate drive not recognized in bios

yes when the controller card on a hard drive goes dead then its usually comes to a dead end, personally i have never tried to rip it open and try to replace the controller card, something you could try and do if you wanted to try it, but wouldnt get your hopes up. as far as the jumpers go it doesnt matter where you put it on the hard drive it would show up in the system somewhere you would just have some conflicts going on that would let you know that you need to redo your settings on your drives.

Must be something to do with BIOS and seeing HID devices on 'StartUp'?
Lastly, I have enabled Legacy USB device support in BIOS, but still no joy. Also, have tested mouse on other laptops - works fine on StartUp, so NOT the mouse.

Any suggestions, folks? Thanks....

Hi

Disconnect your USB mouse and go to device manager.
Then delete all USB hubs and USB controllers from the device manager list.
Then reboot the notebook.
Wait until all USB ports have been recognized and installed again.
Then connect the USB mouse and check how it works.

You should also test different USB ports available on this notebook.

Hi

I wondering what Crisis Recovery Disk do you have ?:|
In my experience the special disk is needed which is available only for ASP technician.
Therefore it?s necessary to contact the ASP in your country in order to reflash the BIOS.

In my opinion you shouldn?t not try any ?Crisis Recovery disks? which you fond in the net? this can lead to mobo damage?
