    Need some advice

    Alright, well...

    My laptop recently took a shit on me, and I discovered it was harddrive damage. I don't know how the hell that happened, since its been sitting on my desk for the last week... but whatever.

    I've tried many different things, but to no avail. Its shit now. So i need a new hdd for my laptop.


    I do have a WD Passport external HDD. I took it apart and found its almost the same specs as my previous harddrive. So I replaced the old HDD with my WD passport. (at this point, I've taken the WD passport out of its case, and placed it into the laptop.) Since my previous HDD kicked the bucket, I knew I'd have to reinstall Windows. I started up the installation, but it doesn't detect the new HDD (WD passport.) I'm stumped.

    I REALLY DON'T WANT TO BUY A NEW ONE. I had just bought this HDD (old one) about a month ago. 500GB Hitachi.

    If anyone knows what to do, or has any ideas, I'd greatly appreciate.

    You get the bag and fumble it
    I get the bag and flip it and tumble it
    Straight out the lot, 300 cash
    And the car came with a blunt in it
    Lil mama a thot, and she got ass
    And she gon' fuck up a bag
    Pull up to the spot, livin' too fast
    Droppin' the dope in the stash
    In Italy, got two foreign hoes, they DM me
    Drop the top when it's cold
    But you feel the heat
    Be real with me, just be real with me
    Eat it up like it's a feast
    They say the dope on fleek

    It wouldn't be external if its in my laptop would it?
    I've seen videos and read some posts about other people doing this, and it working fine.

    I don't want to use my POS Dell desktop. Laptops ftw.

    I just bought a new HDD for it, so it would really suck if I have to buy a new one...

    Your bios doesnt detect it.
    contact the company that made your BIOS and see if they can help

    Or it could just be that the External HDD has failed. Does it work on other computer?

    Just try putting you HDD into a USB and just save everything to that instead

    If it cant recognize it, your bios doesnt detect it. THe bios is what makes your computer not a piece of metal.

    It could be that your HDD failed, or maybe there is a faulty connector

    FUUUUUUUCK.

    My Dell desktop recognizes the external HDD. I have a USB to SATA cable that I'm using right to connect my external to my desktop...

    It could be you have faulty SATA pins

    Just
    1.get it checked by some professional
    2.Contact the company that made the BIOS and see if they can help

    It still detects my shit HDD though, but it won't boot windows completely because the HDD is fucked.
