To configure the hard drive as a slave drive, you need to set a jumper on the hard drive to SL (slave)
The other jumper settings are MA (master) and CS (cable select).

You do NOT need to buy a new Samsung disk-drive.
You can buy a replacement from Western Digital, or from Seagate/Maxtor, or any other manufacturer.

Take your current Samsung disk-drive to the computer-store, so that they can sell you a new disk-drive with IDENTICAL data/power connectors (either Parallel-ATA or SATA).

maybe your HDD are not compatible in your laptop. try to look it in your manual if it is compatible or not.

you have not listed the problem so i guess

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

hope this helps

good day,

try to reformat you hard disk,. if its a physical defect then there is no way you can fix it.

on the other hand, if you are familiar with RMA, then you could send the defective Hard disk that you have to the Manufacturer and they will replace it brand new...

Hello their sam4ubabe

So you mean you Took it off and put it back again...

Try this sequence:..

1. Remove your Hard disk
2. Clean it, remove Dust particles around the connectors
3. Put back the Hard disk, don't tight it so much.
4. Put back those Connectors from Hard disk connectors and Power Connectors.
5. Push the connectors to tighten contacts.

Power it ON.

Lets see if it goes back.
