Guys, I have a SAMSUNG ST500lm012 HD that is not recognized by the BIOS.
Notebook FIC DIAMOND PCA46

Could someone help?
The HD runs on another notebook perfectly.

It is quite rare, but sometimes an old laptop may sometimes recognize a unit and sometimes not, especially with the SSD.

Always in these cases it is recommended to do a BIOS update at the beginning. The manufacturer sometimes says that the update is to fix a certain failure, but other failures not described are usually fixed.

If it used to work on this laptop before and not now. Try removing the battery and charger and having the power button pressed for 30-40 seconds, and then turn it on ..

I'm sorry I did not give you another help.

I reset, but the BIOS does not identify!

This is SATA 2.
