Hard Drive Installation
Repair and installation of a hard disk
A key responsibility of the PC technique for managing hard disks and includes installation disc into the computer system and system configuration to recognize the newly added disks. You can find the skills needed to install, configure the system to recognize the newly added disks. Introducing a new world of terminology related to installing and configuring the hard drive, along with other types of storage such as CD-ROMs and DVDs. We also ensure that you understand the difference between IDE, SCSI and Serial ATA (SATA) hard drives. Before discussing the installation and configuration of IDE and SATA drives, it is important to cover the basic terminology about hard drives.
Bowls: The platform is a physical object within a hard disk, which is responsible for data storage. The platform is similar to an old record turntable as the main difference that a lot of hard disk platters, while the record player has only one record at a time.
Tracks: Just as there are grooves, or tracks on the disc of music, there are also tracked on each platter. These are regularly spaced on the surface track tray.
Sector: the card is divided into pieces of cake in the shape, called sectors, now think about confusion is that the areas where the path intersects the sector create sector blocks, also known as Sector! Each sector is 512 bytes.
Installing the IDE - SATA hard disk:
We will give you an idea how to install an IDE or SATA hard drive because hard drives are different featuring only the best-known solution for installing hard drives.
First, you want to open the computer case and find an empty bay to connect the new hard drive. If you remove the old hard drive, you can use the same bay. However, if you add a hard drive, you need to find an empty drive bay and connect to the site. Second, plug the unit into position so that the power connector and ribbon cable connector is facing the base plate. After mounting the unit in place, as the third step, connect the IDE connector on the motherboard to the connector on the IDE hard drive with 40 - IDE ribbon cable son, then connect the power connector on the drive. The question is: How do you know which pin is pins 1 hopefully, the manufacturer's Pin 1 by a small (1) in its vicinity? If you look at the connector on the hard drive and motherboard, you can see a small (1) At one end of the connector. This is where you should place one (40) 40 pins instead of showing where pin 1, so watch out for that too. When you connect the IDE ribbon cable, you want to give power hard drive, so you can run the motor in the unit.
Hard drive crashed or failed: Hard disk can fail at any time, even when brand new. Sometimes the computer freezes or crashes at least previously a day. This accident could be the first sign that the hard disk cannot be refused once. In this case, the first thing, you need to do is "backup". Second sign, when Windows takes a long time to load than usual. The third sign, when the blue screen of death with error code displayed on the screen. Blue Screen of Death is associated with a failure of the hard disk, memory, graphics card, motherboard or a software problem.
