New hard drive problem
I have recently had some problems with my laptop and in the end of the story its hard drive died. So i bought a new 500gb samsung hard drive and it does not work properly. I have also got another laptop, it is not mine, but i can test everything with it.
So there i got 2 laptops and 2 hard drives - a new one and a working used one. When i put a used hard drive to my laptop whichs hard drive died, everything works - the windows boots up properly.
When i put the new hard drive to the same laptop, it offten wont load windows and when it does it just stays on starting windows splash and does not boot up.
When i put the new hard drive to another laptop from which i took the used hard drive, everything works perfectly.
How is that possible that one hard drive works on both laptops and the other one on only one of them?
My laptop did not even let me instal windows on to the new hard drive, it would get back to the start of instalation after first reboot. I had to instal windows using the other laptop.
My old hard drive which died was 250 gb seagate. Both laptops are Asus, mine is F5SL and the other ones model i can not remember right now, but it is slightly older.

Connect the new drive.
Boot into the bios.
Choose Default Settings.
boot up again.
If not go back into the bios, and make sure that the boot order and the disk order is correct. Asus bioses are a little different so you may have to set one to boot first from Hard Disk, and then tell it which it hard disk.
