  3. Having mouse issues. Please help?

    I haven't seen that in W10 yet but saw it occasionally with W8.1. My workaround when it happened was to use Mousekeys to start moving the pointer in the opposite direction. My explanation is that there was contention for the pointer between two different
    drivers, e.g. the real one and Mousekeys, such that each would be trying to move the pointer down at the same time. Then each downward movement would have to be matched by the other until eventually the bottom of the screen was reached. It's actually kind
    of suprising that I haven't seen it yet in W10, since I always have Mousekeys enabled with NumLock off, which is how I have it configured to be used.



    FYI

    This for a primary drive for the OS ? Booting from installation disc properly ? Wait a minute, sorry, just a 3rd drive and already have OS installed ?

    Is the drive defective? Any way you can try it in another computer?

    Go into BIOS and see if the drive shows up in the devices list there, if you can please. If it shows there then the motherboard does see it. Also what is the wattage of your power supply unit?

  10. Assuming the drive is blank, then it should come down to something in the boot process. Do you have a second controller on the motherboard to try? Can you remove your second drive and try this third one in it's place?

    The drive is indeed blank, I've checked over the boot process. I've changed the different sata ports and even taken out the second drive completely.

  12. Uninstall the drive. Boot system. Let it run for about 5 minutes, while system is running install the new hdd. If you can now see it then re-format the drive then, create one partition the size of the drive. In disk management you will have to designate a drive letter for your new hd drive. Do not install any OS on this drive unless you want to later. The drive should now be a storage device and not a boot device and should appear as such on your machine.Unless the new drive is bricked this is a relatively easy problem to solve.

    Windows 10 however causes some very unusual problems never seen before. imo. Also in the bios set boot order using windows boot manager to set your boot sequence if you can not a particular drive. On my pc with windows 10 I cannot delete any drive from boot chain or select what drive to boot from. It only works using windows boot manager to fire this thing up. 21st century stuff I guess.

    They can't format the drive. When it's installed the computer won't boot. That's why I think it may be a bad drive.

    Are you getting an error when the computer refuses to boot such as "OS not found" or anything like that?

    No nothing like that, just a infinite boot
