Think I need a new hard drive as this one keeps crashing and going back to PIO mode, it starts to click before it crashes so I think it might be at fault.My question is how do I know what type of hard drive I need, I'm sure it is SATA but not sure without opening the boxBefore anyone asks I have tried diagnostics but they all pass, but I am open to ideasThanks
go to device manager click on the drive and post the name and number here so w can find details of the drive type
Still getting same problems when its in DMA mode works for a while then crashes and goes back to PIOThe drive in question is a Maxtor 7Y250M0Tried the Seagate diagnostic tool its tells me its 25% anyone know what the meansAnyway hope you can help
yes its a SATA drive click hereCheck in the BIOS that all drives and controllers are enabled and not just set to auto.Updating the SATA / IDE drivers for the chipset may also help.
Thanks Fruit Bat should have been able to do that myself, I hang my head in shameAny ideas on what the Seagate utility is showing me?
Check the drive with this. Download it to computer the click on it with a clean floppy in drive then after it create the disc start comp with it click hereDownload DOS version
Thanks woodchip used that already my drive passes all tests
Sorry just read what you put you said download the DOS version I will when i find a floppy disc
