Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Lost manual I have misplaced my manual for my 150GB hard drive can you help please Thanks Frank


Answers :

You didn't mention a name so I will shoot in the dark to try to help...if your computer doesn't recognize the hard drive that is because it is not formatted yet.
If it is an IDE hard drive make sure the jumpers on the end of the drive are set the way you want. If it is a single drive set to MA or CS if it is the second hard drive select SL if it is a Serial drive it will detect the position by itself. Make sure you power supply plug is snug. More information can be gleaned easily from the manufacturer's site, Seagate, Maxtor (is seagate) Western Digital..and the like.
hope something here hit target, please leave rating. thank you kindly
