My Friend Needs Some Help :O

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Please help guys!

IThunderBoxl: And then to top it off I have a extra Hard Drive that won't even be detected by MyComputer
mYNamEISMurTy: aww.. hmm... why won't your computer detect your hard drive? did you install the software correctly?
IThunderBoxl: It didnt come with any software, just the Hard Drive
mYNamEISMurTy: well, that's not right.
mYNamEISMurTy: k let me check something
IThunderBoxl: The BIOS has it detected by I cant find it on My Computer
mYNamEISMurTy: you have to install the hard drive first for it to be detected, i believe
IThunderBoxl: I'll update the drivers for it
mYNamEISMurTy: try that. the basic input system should automatically start an install, no?
mYNamEISMurTy: it did that for my hard drive
IThunderBoxl: nope, it didnt do anything
IThunderBoxl: when I put it in

Can you guys help? He got a new hard drive, and it won't install. Is there any way he can fix it? A reply is MUCH appreciated!

Thanks

Is it SATA or IDE? IDE probably if you're moving jumpers.
If SATA does he have RAID drivers installed?
What OS is he running?
Does it show up in the bios?

IDE, I use Windows XP, and yes it does show in the BIOS. I can find it on my decive manager but I can't find it in My Computer.It's there but I can't see it and I can't save anything to it.
