[qanda]This thread is about the Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 1 TB SATA 3.0 Gb/s. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have bought recently the drive:
Hitachi DeskStar 7K1000.B - 1 TÎ’ - 7200 RPM - 16 MÎ’ - SATA II (bulk edition) and when i connected it to my pc
after a long period of showing the bios picture says something about to connect a cable of 2x12V and reboots.
After the reboot starts normally but does not find my drive, neither in the system bios and in the OS.
My pc is:
Pentium(R) 4 4.3 GHz
L2 Cache 1024 KB
Memory: 4 GB (4x1 GB DDR2-SDRAM PC4200 CL4 (KVR533D2N4/1G) - Kingston)
Mainboard: Intel D915GEV
video card: ASUS Extreme AX300SE/T
1) ST380013AS (80 GB - primary - OS installed)
2) SAMSUNG SP2004C (250 GB - slave)
3) SAMSUNG HD501LJ (500 GB - secondary controller - master)
OS: Windows XP sp3
Now my pc works great except that sometimes stacks for 3-4 seconds and then continues regular. My mainboard has
4 SATA which i already have 3 on them and i tried to disconnect an older drive and connect the new but no luck! I have disconnect all drives and connected this one only to see if there is a master conflict but still no luck. What is the problem?
