A year ago I bought a desktop, which carries a 160 GB hard disk. In the last week I changed it into 500 GB. After replacing it, my computer works for ten seconds and shuts down after the time.

What is the problem?

HI Wodesk!

Well, it is clear that it has something to do with Compatibility issue. Did you check the specifications of your computer before upgrading to 500 GB hard drive/disk? It is also possible that there was an error in upgrading to 500 GB. One thing also, your system might not be able to handle or carry that amount of HD to be installed in your computer.
 
The best thing that you can do, I think is to have it checked by a computer, to find out what is causing the problem. It is very important to research first before doing any upgrade to our PC. It is always a question of compatibility.
 
Good luck!

Hello,

It can be that the hard drive is not recognized by the system. Check the connection if fixed properly or if there is an error reboot the system. Go to the BIOS setup, check the system if functioning well with the motherboard. If the connections are properly fixed or it connects, simply restart again try to boot the system and then make correct settings. 
 
Enable the drive, if your desktop has a floppy controller. To enable the device, check the boot order and then check the jumper setting.
