View Full Version : G73JH not detecting hdd

12-18-2014, 06:11 AM
I have a single hdd 500gb. It is not getting detected even in bios. I have tried swapping ports, resetting bios but no use.
I have checked the hdd on a friends laptop and its working.

On the G73jh, any hdd i attach is not detected and makes a very soft clicking continuously.

Please help

When I was testing ODD and HDD for a company some years ago. I noticed that some 2.5 HDD required more power. The 500GB HDD that required more power usually were thicker in height. One option is to run the drive through a powered hub. Second would be to use a sort of weird Y-cable that provided more power being plugged into two different USB ports. GL
