So I got another motherboard for this laptop which on eBay was listed as working, which it is, except I cannot get it to detect a HDD. I've tried two different ones now and neither come up in the BIOS. I've tried unplugging and replugging in, cleaning connections etc but to no avail.

Any ideas? I kind of need it working by Sunday.

Try doing a BIOS reset.

Try doing a BIOS reset.


ie Restore to factory settings or do some Jumper trick :P

EDIT: Restoring to default = fail. Error I get on boot is IDE ERROR #0

Use the jumper pins.

If that also fails, then it sounds like the IDE controller is dead.

If its still under warrenty you can get it fixed for a smaller fee then when it not under warrenty.

Or maybe even get the laptop replaced it its broken.

OK, so after a month I have another go with booting this laptop up.

Quote:
When HDD is plugged in, it goes to the Toshiba logo but HDD does NOT spin up or boot

When HDD is not plugged in, it says IDE #0 ERROR, then goes to the Toshiba logo...


Jumpers maybe? (Do laptop HDD's even have jumpers and the like?
