    When I start my pc it stops at the start in the black ones. (the one with the bios at the start) Hardisk failed appears when I press f1,f8 and others then it is askin for a system disk. Boot from disk press any key etc. on top of it appears secondary ide 80 connector not installed. (something like that I forgot what exactly appeared but I think you’ve got it). I’ve checked the connections already inside but they are all right. What is the cause of it. Thanks.

    Who is the manufacturer of your disk ?

    You may be able to download some hard disk checking utilities from the Manufacturers site.
    These are usually in the form of a boot up floppy, that will load some tools to check the drive.
